F-bar gurgaon was taken over by Ministry of Sound and renamed the same so might be possible your cousin has gone there!

Very True DerAlte bhaiya.. but considering Ministry of sound, Radisson and other big names.. oh! this place was a mess.

I really envy our kerela Tbhpian mates.. they can get the stuff wherever they want and here I need to travel 80 Kms to get 150 Rs. worth of food!

it's an AUTHENTIC kerela restaurant.
Sigh. Only in Delhi would an authentic Kerala restaurant be called Madras.

Guys suggest some good places where can go to satisfy the midnight hunger. The dress code should be casual (you are watching a late night flick on idiot box and suddenly you start feeling hungry). I am aware of the Pandara Road restaurants being open till 1 - 2 AM and I always stay a mile away from Comesum. Some more inputs pls.

1. Flyover construction going on.
2. No ambience, not a place where you would want to take your wife.
2. I hate eating in the car (arent all tbhpians supposed to, afterall we love our cars so much)
3. The local Police keeps on visiting after midnight and the dhaba ownbers would either down the shutters or close the dhaba for the day (rather night). Utter nuisance

Something like a midnight buffet sounds good (dont mind dressing up for that cheers

Yellow Brick Road at The Ambassador Hotel. Food is very very good and I wouldn't call it too expensive.

If in Gurgaon, try the Lemon Tree Hotel (VFM and great food) or the food court in the WNS building (Or is it the Sapient building?).

And you may have to wait for 5-7 minutes each time you want to fill your plate. I had a horrible experience at 300 bucks per head lunch there.

A better A la carteoption is "Nazare pind de" near Om Sweets in Sec 31, Gurgaon. Typical punjabi food.
My expereience with Magnolia was more pleasent. The quality of food, though not top notch, was OK, the tomato soups were delicious (Buffet lunch). I did not face any such issue with quantity, all the 3-4 times i have been there.
However, one place which i would highly recommend for Buffet is Punjabi Grill in Ambience Mall, even though its expensive compared to Magnolia. Lovely food, specially the dum-pukht biryanis and some very delicious starters (fish/mutton roll/chicken malai tikka/gobi pakora etc.). Even the Nimbu paani they serve before the main course was quite good. But i would go only there for that pretty young thing that greets at the entrance.
