GolfWorx, Ambiance Mall, Gurgaon

[singlepic id=1725 w=80 h=92 float=left]Food is definitely gaining more and more prominence in nearly every service venture. GolfWorx in Ambiance Mall for instance is obviously working hard to create an atmosphere where the dining experience can be rated at par with their indoor gaming facilities. Divided into multiple areas, GolfWorx has a place for most moods – an exclusive cigar lounge, a dining area opposite their see-through kitchen, sofa lounges and of course, seating in the gaming areas.

We visiting during their 5 course meal promotion. It’s quite nice really – a starter, soup, two main courses and a dessert accompanied by a pint of red or white Sula wine for Rupees 695++. The portions are large, well presented and quite unlike what you may expect for that price. We tried their Bruschetta, Calamari, Chicken Manchow Soup, Hot and Sour Soup, Fish and Chips, Murg Makhani, Herb Encrusted Cottage Cheese Steak, Mushroom Risotto, Chocolate Mud Slice and a Gulab Jamun.

On the whole, an excellent meal, in the context of indoor entertainment. The only notes of discord were the Bruschetta and the Cottage Cheese Steak. The topping for the bruschetta was nearly ice cold and the bread could have been fresher. Alright, so it was stale bread historically, but let’s not take history too literally. The herb crust of the Cottage Cheese Steak had soaked up a little too much oil for my liking, though the accompaniments and sauce tasted just fine. Other than that, the rest of our meal was really very good. The Murg Makhani was very good – creamy, tangy with perfectly cooked chicken and so were the Calamari, which came in a very large portion and was certainly enough for two people. The medallion of honor however goes to the Mushroom Risotto. True, it wasn’t al dente, but I don’t blame the restaurant for that. The average diner will probably raise a hue and cry about how GolfWorx served them kaccha rice. It was however, creamy and delicious, resplendent in it’s mushroomy flavor and I’m afraid I pigged out on this dish. A great experience though I would wish for more informed staff – one assumed the wine was a food course and the other insisted bruschettas came with cold toppings.

I recommend visiting GolfWorx in Ambiance Mall, Gurgaon. I can’t speak about the golf, but the food is definitely above par.
