Food Review: Talli Singh Gurgaon

Food Review: Talli Singh Gurgaon

Hi everyone! Wishing you a very happy weekend. This week I went to Talli Singh, Sector 29, Gurgaon, and I wanted to share my experience with you.

Being a blogger, and just like any other Delhite, I go out at least twice a week (sometimes even four or five times a week). I am always on the lookout for something different, value for money and great ambience.

Getting There

After postponing this a few times, I decided to step out on Wednesday evening, the same day Gurgaon got rainshowers as a gift from the Almighty. What was supposed to be an hour long ride, turned into two-and-a-half-hours. Thankfully, I had my Dad as company whose always good in such situations and keeps his cool.

Decor

Talli Singh is bang in the square with all other restaurants like Warehouse Cafe, Molecule and Downtown.

It’s got two floors: the first and the basement and looks pretty decent and sombre, when compared to its name. I’d frankly expected the ambience to be boisterous, but it’s actually not. The first floor has couches and tables whereas the basement has a darker lighting scheme and a bar.

With a simple tag line “eat,drink, repeat”, Talli Singh is actually inspired by comedian Johny Walker and a bottle of Johnie Walker. Owner and chef Mahender Singh Chhikara aka Bobby also owns a chain of North Indian restaurants Diwan (on the second floor of the established) that are hugely popular in the US.

Drinks
The fabulous staff at Talli Singh had actually given us a cocktail menu but I stuck to a glass of Jacob’s Creek ( the lovely mixologist offered to make me a mean white wine sangria but I said NO!). I am not very keen on Vodka based drinks but I think Cointreaupolitan is quite unique to Delhi’s drinking scene.

 

Food Tasting

We started with Prawns Tempura which was fresh (properly de-veined) and served whole, but lacked flavour–it was served with a sweet sauce that didn’t help much. What followed was Veg Naanza, where you use a good old naan to make a pizza. While I am all for trying and experimenting, I don’t think this worked because the base was just TOO soft and couldn’t hold onto the toppings.

Indian favourites like Murgh Malai Tikka and Chur Chur Naan were on point. Tender, succulent pieces of tandoor divinity along with this quality of Naan was a meal in itself (The chefs at Diwan are doing a wonderful job).

Wasabi prawns by Talli Singh

Seafood dimsums will actually be loved by momo-lovers. The filling mainly had prawns (and little shrimp)–I think lobster or just some other kind of meat would have added more texture to it. Like any good Asian restaurant, their Mongolian vegetables and Crispy Chilly Corn were right on flavour.

Main course had Nasi Goreng, an Indonesian staple: quite frankly it’s something I’m still not used to (I was introduced to it last year) and seemed right on recipe. We also had a portion of kung pao chicken and steamed rice–which can be ordered home–and should be ordered (please note, Gurugrammers)!

Service
For me, a good service can compensate for lack of quality (not that, that was the case here). The wait staff, and the manager were very attentive and amicable to all its patrons. A brief chat with the manager informed that Talli Singh is just 2 months old, and that it is slowly becoming a favourite amongst corporates.

I feel their stronghold should be Asian food (instead of mixing cuisines) and that can help them specialise in this niche.

If you’re heading to Gurgaon, or live there, you should go to Talli Singh and tell me what you think of it.
