7678 Interested |


There was a time when partying this side of the DND was riddled with known {and unknown} risks. This is why, we’re here to show a little bit of love for places that are making Noida night scenes a safe and fun possibility. Head to The Smoke Factory in Gardens Galleria if you’re after music and hookah with some good ol’ paneer lababdar thrown in.

Night Owls Unite

Friends and family who like to let their hair down every Saturday night had been raving about Imperfecto’s loud and proud neighbour, The Smoke Factory. So we recently dropped by for a quick look-see. The verdict? We totally approve.

From bruschetta and salads, to tikkas and mezze platters and from pastas to biryani and pizzas to dal makhani, the variety is impressive both in terms of food and drinks.

The chilled beer we got was a welcome respite on a hot afternoon. The rectangular Garden Fresh Pizza came with the perfect crust and crispy toppings. The North Indian that made its way to the table made the cut and the nachos and dahi kebabs were worthy accompaniments as we chugged.

In fact, even things we usually take for granted, like the staff and service left a great aftertaste with their attentive but unobtrusive attitude. The food didn’t take forever to arrive and everything was fresh and piping hot.

So, We're Saying...

Apart from the weekend squad outings, we think it’s also a great place to be if you’re meeting your Tinder date and aren’t really sure what to expect. The music will keep you company if either of you is running late, their bar is well-stocked so the likelihood of awkward pauses is lower and if you two want a moment to yourselves, you can step out. Perfect, right?

Oh, and hookah in a non-seedy bar is an add-on… Noida’s slowly coming into its own and we can’t tell you how glad we are to avoid that drive to the capital.
