We all have that one restaurant we find ourselves visiting over and over again, till we’re acquainted with each and every single thing on the menu. We spoke to our Noida friends about their go-to restaurants which remain favourites even in light of new places cropping up every day. So if you do find yourself on the other side of the river, here are some places you could visit for a meal.

Berco’s

Punjabi by Nature

Restaurants in Noida

Ideal for when you’re going out in a large group, Punjabi by Nature is a typical fine dining Indian restaurant. Highlights on their menu include Dal Punjabi, Galouti Kebab and of course, the much talked-about vodka golgappas.

Pind Balluchi

Restaurants in Noida

A classic for a family outing, the age-old Pind Balluchi continues to be one of the most frequented restaurants. The Noida outlet welcomes visitors with a burst of colour and the figurine of a sardarji sitting on a bench outside. If you’re a first-time customer {or even a returning one}, the Dahi ke Kebab and the Murg Tandoori will prove to be worth your while.

Berco’s

Restaurants in Noida

Berco’s always has been {and perhaps still is} Noida’s favourite Chinese joint. They even have a garden in case you want to dine al fresco in good weather. When it comes to the menu, there’s little they do wrong, but we’re partial to the Chilli Chicken, the Chopsuey and the Thai Curry.

Desi Vibes

Restaurants in Noida

The first thing that strikes you here is the décor; inspired by rural India, there’s a generous use of colour, charpai-like bench seating, lots of mirrors and puppets on the wall. The food is predominantly north Indian with the Paneer Makhani and Dal Makhani being the most popular choices.

Lakshmi Coffee House

Restaurants in Noida

This is one of the oldest restaurants in Noida and has earned itself a loyal clientele; you’ll see what we mean if you go on a weekend {hoards of people waiting outside to get a seat}. They serve south Indian fare, including crispy dosas, idlis, sambar and a tangy lemon rice.

Theos

Restaurants in Noida

What started as a bakery {with Hazelnut Opera Cake, the Dark Chocolate Mousse Cake and the Theos Brownies being the highlights} now runs a kitchen for all meals. The Cream of Chicken and Basil Soup, Warm Chicken Salad, Spaghetti Bolognese, Fusilli Alfredo with Mushrooms and Pesto Bread are some of their hottest selling dishes. With a vast menu of shakes and coolers, Theos really is one of the best options for an Italian or continental meal in Noida.

Fortune Cookie

Restaurants in Noida

With typical red oriental décor, Fortune Cookie feels like it’s right out of a movie, and can be a great place for a cosy date. Their Kung Pao Chicken and Hakka Noodles are perhaps the most popular items, and for good reason. And the best part of the meal comes at the end, when you’re given a fortune cookie to break and eat, and a sweet message to take home with you.

Where: P 18, Sector 18

Nearest Metro Station: Sector 16

Kaffiiaa

Restaurants in Noida

This two-storeyed restaurant in Sector 18 has a super laid-back ambience and is most frequented by college students. The menu is majorly Italian {but infused with Indian spices}. We love the pasta section {special shout out to the Piri Piri Fusilli}. For a quick bite, the Chicken in a Basket and the Antipasti Platter are both great options.
