Ten-Second Takeaway

From spicy Kashmiri delights to Italian fare, DiVino at Sector 29 Gurgaon is fast coming up as a delish destination for those looking for a good meal in the middle of the day.

Must Eat

They have an extensive global menu with interesting options, ranging from soya chaap made in Kashmiri spices and chickpea and hummus roulade, to olive and sun-dried tomato risotto {one of the best I’ve had anywhere!}. The arugula salad was delicious, and the loaded potatoes were very different from what you might be used to {spiked with some chili sauce and topped with cheese and jalapenos}.

For dessert, go for the apple crumble {we found the tiramisu to be a bit too sweet}.

Must Drink

A cooling mix of mango pulp, thyme, honey and lime, or a detoxifying concoction like tulsi and lime booster {they don’t have their liquor license yet}. They also have traditional fare such as the spiced shikanji you should check out. If you want a soup, try their mushroom and vegetable broth with coconut milk.

What We Loved

Their live pianist {with his own version of old Hindi and English numbers}.

What Didn’t Impress Us

The air conditioning was a bit off, and given the Delhi weather, it can really hamper the experience.

When Is The Best Time To Visit?

They have a lot of evenings planned throughout the week, like their Sunday artist meet evenings and Tuesday ladies nights {you might want to wait for their liquor license before planning for this one}.


They offer any three small plates for  INR 395 only, which is quite a steal.

So, We’re Saying…

Their food is worth the money—with a lot of fresh fruit in their drinks too {we bet you haven’t had some of their combinations anywhere before}. You might want to drop in for a quick pick-me-up if you’re in the area.
