Kailash which is based in Chandigarh- Kailash Restaurant


I had samosa chat, which is samosa with chole, chole were very spicy and samosa was not fresh. Then, I ordered Veg Chowmein, firstly the vinegar was very high when I reported this the staff was polite enough to change it but sadly this time it was more pathetic then earlier as per the taste, though the quantity was good. However, some of the staff members needs to learn a bit more about how to present the food and behave with the customers.Ambience is not good. Just an advance version of  Sweets Shop or a dhaba in a form of a restaurant in one place.This place is nice for lunch or dinner outing with family. Ambience - 4/5 service- 3/5 food-3/5 Value for money:3/5

Cafe which has no wall street- Cafe Wall Street

 

This place has got really amazing ambience it is quite different from many other restaurants or cafes in the area. Here the seating arrangement is done in the form of seating chambers based on different themes such as sports, Hollywood, retro and others.the staff here is courteous well mannered who provides the equally good service, the music played around is also nice. Talking about the food, we ordered Moroccan cheese spring rolls, cheesy cowboy nachos and veg platter.













The spring rolls were crispy and perfectly cooked but I found the veg platter best of the lot. The platter was so beautifully presented with broccoli leaves and it was were served with mint chutney and sauce. We simply loved that.

For delicious & Pocket Friendly - Chinese Hot Corner





Chinese Hot Corner-based in Vasundhara Enclave, Delhi is one the of my all time favourite place for pocket-friendly tasteful Chinese dishes. They make amazing Honey Chilly Potato and Fried Momos, Chilli Garlic Noodles. I have tried Honey Chilly Potato in many other Chinese Restaurants but this place offers the best Honey Chilly one can get. The crispness in every slice of Potato is very crispy Not to forget the best thing about the Noodles is that they are thin and long,I am simply fond of their Noodles. Their Spring roll and Manchurian are also nice, however, if they work little on that it will be great because it has less of veggies with more gravy. They serve their Momos with a Coleslaw and Hot sauce which are so tasteful. I will recommend this place to every person who wants to enjoy the best and pocket-friendly Chinese. It's a perfect option if you want to eat some good desi Chinese food which is easy on the pocket too. A heads up if you are an ambience or hygiene cautious person then you will be disappointed because this place is all about the unsophisticated but delicious desi Chinese food.

Indiblogger & Mobiistar launches Pocket friendly smartphones for Indian Consumers


The Indi blogger meet is an event that every blogger looks forward to. This time it took almost a year and a half for it to happen. The meet is an excellent opportunity to meet long-time good friends and brush shoulders with the best bloggers around. The long-awaited event finally came but strictly on an invitation basis.

So I applied for one with my fingers crossed. My prayers got answered in the form of a Pass in my mailbox to attend the event. The clock started ticking in my head for 23rd May 2018- the day of the event.

I was all ready to hit the venue with my leg in the cast. I started interlocking with other bloggers way ahead of the event, with numerous phone calls to fix a time and the mode to reach the venue. However, my plan was in jeopardy due to the heavy traffic and a sudden diversion by the pool cab to pick up another ride. This resulted in reaching the rendezvous point late by almost 10mins.  Finally, a hop, skip and jump through the security I was there at Hyatt Regency Delhi.

As usual, there were multiple events hosted there and for a minute I was confused in identifying the Indi-blogger meet. Suddenly I saw Dr.Manoj Dubey to my rescue. I was perfectly led to my final destination. There at first, I meet Alok Ji and Gaurab. The registration process was yet to start. I quickly caught up with known faces: Dr Mandira, Ronita, Saurabh, Abhishek, Umang, Mr. & Mrs Passey, The Khanduja and Bohra families. The conversation became interesting with the tea and coffee arranged by our host. Finally, the registration process started. I proudly flashed my Indi pass and got registered. 



After which we all headed into the main hall “Oval Room”. There were few issues in service during the high teas that are hard to ignore. Hyatt Regency Delhi, a well-known name in hospitality, should have lived up its reputation and the brand image. The event started with the entry of our favourite Indi Core Team member the “Karthik”. He started the proceedings by introducing the event anchor from Mobiistar Soma Rana. She welcomed everyone and then she invited Mobiistar, CEO- Mr Carl Ngo on the stage. Mr Carl Ngo introduced Mobiistar and Shared the plans for its launch. In his presentation, Mr.Carl Ngo explained the USPs of Mobiistar phones and Mobiistar expansion. After which there was a break for high tea and alongside a musical performance of music band. Post high tea there was an activity planned for all of us, where we all were divided into a team of 10 each including a team leader. In the activity, we have to make a story with the help of selfies using the Mobiistar phone. The time for this activity was 30mins. The result of the activity is still awaited.

Some Noodles @ Lets Noodles




It's a based inside Mahagun metro Mall, Vaishali. I am fond of Chinese food, so thought to give it a try during a visit on one of the weekend.  Although the ambience is nice the seating seems to be little crowded. I went there with my friends and we all observed a very weird smell floating down n the air.
We had veg spring rolls which were good; however, the service on table took more than 20 minutes. We also ordered the chilli garlic noodles, the noodles were good. But with Manchurian we were greatly disappointed. Overall the food was just okay but not as good to be priced exorbitantly. Also felt the great lacking of hospitality skills in the staff seems they aren't from the educated background so that they could not help in exploring and explaining the dishes. I guess there are far better options available in the market to explore.

Royal Spice which is not so Royal



Well, I went there for a birthday party. This seems out to be a perfect option for the get together or small parties for the gathering of about 50 people.  The staff here is courteous and well-mannered, the ambiance of the place is kept simple and with easily moveable furniture as they lend space for private parties besides regular restaurant business .Coming down to the food, I have tasted their Dal makhni which was just average cooked dal and so was the raita, shahi paneer, dal makhni, mix veg and assorted pieces of bread. The Ice cream and gulab jamun were there in desserts, Ice cream was good but gulab jamun where disappointment. There was nothing as wow or tasteful. Overall this was an average experience. Lastly just want to add a point as feedback; if they work little on their taste of the food and service of the restaurant it will be great. Also if they would promote their restaurant properly, they will get the good business as there are no good food restaurants in this vicinity.

Baked Buns-which are not baked properly




If you are fond of burgers Baked Buns is a good place to have burgers in mayur vihar because there are very few outlets where you can find some nice burgers. Their veg burger and the pizzas are average in taste. Baked buns are located in close proximity in Mayur Vihar phase 3. Though it is a small outlet serving fast food and largely known for takeaways and home delivery orders. Talking about the food I being a vegan ordered corn and cheese sandwich, garlic bread and walnut brownie. I liked the food except for the brownie. However, somehow I felt that the food and price are not in tandem with each other. Today when Mcdonald's and Burger King offer really great burgers at more reasonable prices, For example, Burger King offers veg burger at Rs 63(exclusive of taxes) whereas McD offers Mcveggie at around Rs 70, So, if you compare both of them you will see the difference on your own, Moreover there have food items which look like as if they are made in some homemade stuff. Would also like to mention, the outlet staff seriously lack on the professionalism needed in this industry, they are seriously lacking into it and have to work on it to sustain in the market.
