Child-Friendly Restaurants in Gurgaon

If you’re a parent, you know how your choice of restaurant is motivated by your offspring. Unless it’s dinner, because then you know they’ll fall asleep at some point {evoked memories of many a nap at Chopsticks, Sirifort, when we were younger}. So, it’s always super if the restaurant is helpful, supportive of your litter, and thus conducive to a peaceful family meal. We consulted the good folk at Gurgaon foodies, and here’s who gets their votes.

Caffe Madhouse

Child_Friendly_Restaurants_Gurgaon_Madhouse Best Restaurants in Gurgaon

Lots of colour, MAD magazine covers on the wall, very interesting wallpaper, a massive screen and a well stocked bar {this one’s for you}. Caffe Madhouse comes recommended for a meal with children; the staff is polite, helpful, and there’s plenty to keep junior distracted, including ample space, if you run out of ways to entertain him/her.

Someone may advise you to head here if you’re the parent of a boy, but why leave them gamer girls behind? A virtual paradise for gamers and sports fanatics, spread across 47,000 sq ft; we’re talking cricket simulators, goalkeeping and racing. No, they didn’t forget snooker and bowling. They also feature virtual reality experiences, essentially, a mix of motion and positional tracking, in addition to head mounted displays and superior quality graphics. Take your inner child, and your real child, and ball out. All we’re saying.

Dhaba by Claridges

This on point Indian restaurant also does another great justice – their kitsch interiors. As for space, it isn’t very open, so children cannot run around, but they can entertain themselves with the truck facade, and knock back their range of colourful mocktails. And parents, cocktails for you! Staying true to that Indian hospitality, the staff and management welcome children, are super friendly, and will go out of their way to accommodate food allergies and preferences.

Barbeque Nation 

Anyone who has been here knows it doesn’t matter if they’re child friendly; with the amount of food they plough you with, you won’t have time to notice anything else. That said, the staff is super friendly, pays attention to toddlers, always serve fries {you know how fries can change a child’s life}, and if you want something specific and customized, they’re happy to come through. Some are of the opinion, thy serve kids better than they serve adults. But, as long as the kids are alright, right?

The Spice Room

Child_Friendly_Restaurants_Gurgaon_The-Spice-Room Best Restaurants in Gurgaon

Again, it’s that Indian hospitality that always wins. Score. With ample running room, we don’t recommend you actually let your child run free, but know that if they do break free, the restaurant is more than accommodating.

Crazy Noodles

Kids love their noodles, and we’re putting it down to the ability to suck that one last strand. The greatest thing though is, the restaurant hands out puzzles while you wait for your food, so your little ones are occupied. Here’s hoping.

Chocolate Room, Bani Square

Children and chocolate. No prizes for guessing why your child will be nothing short of happy over here; all kinds of dessert, fondue, chocolate shakes, hot chocolate, and even chocolate pizza. Make sure you’re in big open spaces after this meal, we don’t need to tell you what sugar does to a child.

American diner-esque, with an incredibly child-friendly menu, including shakes, fries, burgers, hot dogs and ice cream sundaes; blame it on pop culture, but there’s something about all-American joints that give them everlasting appeal.

Jungle Jamboree

Child_Friendly_Restaurants_Gurgaon_Jungle-Jamboree Best Restaurants in Gurgaon

Maybe the words ‘dedicated Kids Zone’ should tell you all you need to know about how child friendly this spot is. Although it doesn’t really matter. Given the tropical rainforest theme the entire restaurant follows, the entire space is super for children. Special mention to the underwater themed section, in case the forest gets too much. Also, parents, they have a 7 course buffet meal available, so you have much to keep you occupied as well.

Roots in the Park, Leisure Valley Park

A solar operated little toy car greets you at the entrance, and we can guarantee your kids will greet it with much fervour. Since much of it is outdoors, junior will love the open space and chance to run around in between bites of the beautiful food. The ground is pebbled, so we’d recommend asking the little one to be careful. Not that you don’t constantly already.

Yo! China MGF Metropolitan

This Yo! China in particular has a comic strip on its wall, and kids and superheroes… well you know better than we do. The food is cheap, fun, with the perfect Chindian taste. There’s lots of food combos, so if you’re baby sitting kids of friends and family, you don’t need to try and order to please everyone.

The Great Kebab Factory

Sigh, we love this restaurant. They never disappoint. Blame it on that age old ‘Family’ restaurant concept, or just good ol’ Indian hospitality, but the staff is very amiable, and patient with children. The only drawback – it is most definitely a sit down spot, so areas to run around are few and far between. The plus? It is in a hotel, so if push comes to shove, a walk outside by the pool is just a hop, skip and a jump away.
