Takamaka- The New Party Destination in Gurgaon!

Takamaka, is one of the newest and hottest party place in Gurgaon that serves amazing food and drinks and has a great line up for live events too. Spread across 3 floors, its a concept club depicting a cruise like ambience, with the floors in true sense representing different decks, the wooden flooring, the iron rails and water tubes and many other elements that bring the cruise alive. The centrally located huge bar is definitely a highlight and they also have a small stage set-up for live performances, in one corner.

Now coming to food, the first thing that I would want to highlight is that they surely serve one of the finest mutton, I mean all their mutton dishes were outstanding. The quality of mutton used speaks for itself. So I’ll start with the mutton dishes first, we tasted Takamaka Barrah Kebab, Mutton Takatak and Dum Pukht’s Galouti Kebab and all these dishes are a must try, you cant afford to miss them. The Barrah was so soft and tender that the mutton was easily leaving the bone and wasn’t stretchy at all. The spices were perfect and it tasted awesome. Mutton Takatak, a boneless mutton preparation in thick tawa gravy was another delightful dish and once again the mutton pieces were extremely tender. The Galoutis were unmatchable, they were so soft that they just melted in the mouth, served with ulte tawa ke parantha and on a glass of beer shot to enhance the flavours, this dish was one of their best.

Takamaka Murg Malai Tikka, Cheese Cigar Rolls, Dahi Ki Nazakat, Butter & Garlic Prawns & Chilly Chicken Drumsticks were the other set of starters we tried and again each of them was good, but for me the Murg Malai Tikka and Dahi Ki Nazakat aka Dahi Kebabs were the best. The chicken was so creamy and tender and so were the dahi ke kebab. The cheese cigar rolls is also something one should try, not because the cheese rolls are very different, but because they are served with three different dips which are superb, especially the beetroot one.

Coming to the main course, we settled for the regular dishes, we tried Choti Murgi Makkhan Wali, Dal Makhani, Mixed Vegetable and Dhaba Gosht. Here once again all three dishes were good and once more I have to mention that their mutton dishes are simply awesome. We also tried some Murg Biryani which too was delectable.

They have a wide variety of drinks and their bar menu is an elaborate one, a 16 pager to be precise. We tried a few mocktails, like Sunset Cooler, Lemon Cucumber, Blue Raspberry Slush, Green Apple Slush and Mojito, and I personally liked Blue Raspberry Slush and Lemon Cucumber the best.

The Orb @Radisson Blu Plaza, Delhi Airport, truly celestial!

True to its name, the moment you step into Orb, you feel the celestial vibes, it feels like a heavenly body, or may be just another planet, but for sure there is something magical about the place. You feel transformed into another world and it also stands true to its name in other way, that it is a circular shaped bar with a huge centre piece of lighting and circular shaped seating around it. The beautiful ambience is marked by the dim blue and pink lighting and with some live DJ music thrown in, it becomes one of the hottest party destination in Delhi. It really makes for the perfect place to hang around with your friends over drinks and music.

Coming to food and drinks, they are as rocking as the ambience of the bar. The bartenders are extremely friendly and they really turn around things to serve finest and most intriguing drinks. When you visit, you ought to try their signature cocktails, they will just blow you over. Khopdi is one such fascinating drink, the process of making it is itself so interesting that yo cant help but keep looking at it for a long time.

Other amazing drinks were Orange Caprioshka, Chilli Chocolate Bunny, Apple Cinnamon Punch, Pale Lady on the Beach and many more..

Finger food to go along with drinks is pretty good too. We tried the Bruschetta, Orb Special Pizza, Achari Fish Tikka and Prawn Tempura. The Bruschetta was really good and so were the Prawns, but I personally loved the Pizza and Achari Fish Tikka the most. The fish was crispy on the outside, perfectly spiced and tender from the inside. The taste of roasted garlic and basil pesto on the pizza was just amazing, I loved it. Chicken Tenders and Cottage Cheese Tikka was good too.

The desserts were the highlight, I tried the Oreo Cookie Baileys Cheese Bar, which was simply awesome. I normally don’t like cheese cakes but this was really nice. Next I tried the Hazelnut Mousse Fudge, which too was nice, but there is a scope for improvement in this one, as I found it a bit dry.

Overall I spent a great evening at Orb, with my friends and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, it would be evident if you see the pictures below 😉
