Epic Coastal Food & Traditional Kerala-Style Interiors: This Gurgaon Restaurant Is Back In A New Avatar

Nitya posted on 29 March


If you can’t get enough of South Indian food or in fact, coastal food in general, you’ve got to drop by Zambar in Gurgaon. They’re back in a new avatar and with a new menu that includes delicacies from the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana and Goa.

Your Dosa Of South Indian

While Zambar has been around for a while, they’ve recently adopted a fresh new look and diversified their menu, and boy, do we love their new avatar!

The interiors of this restaurant look every bit like that of a traditional house in Kerala with wooden swings, windows and a Malayalee version of laid-back wooden chairs. The food too, is authentic South Indian and tastes a lot like the delicacies you’d find in Tamil Nadu and Kerala {but with a few welcome improvisations}.

Each course in itself was a star. Some of our favourites though, were the comforting Kaffir Lime Rasam {we could have multiple bowls of it every day} and the Malabar Porotta with Achamma’s Lamb Curry and Chicken Ghee Roast. We also liked the Ragi Egg Appam which was so light, so soft and so very appetising. While the Jaggery Pudding was not something we’d go back home thinking about, we wouldn’t mind drinking pitchers full of Zambar’s refreshing mocktails, like the Santri Masala Bunta and the Anari Masti. The friyums and pappadums served with an assortment of dips {tangy Amla was our favourite} also deserve a special mention. In between multiple courses we really couldn’t stop ourselves from OD-ing on these.

So, We're Saying...

For some reason, we’re not a fan of dining at restaurants located inside the mall but for Zambar, we’d make an exception. It’s the perfect place for celebratory family dinners {they also serve alcohol, woot woot!} and we promise that it’s worth the trip to G-Town.
