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.
