Ten-Second Takeaway

One of Delhi’s oldest gaming arcades, Future Bowl at Essex Farms, underwent a makeover. Now called Yes Minister, the new, sleek, chic space promises a world of fun and an expansive food and cocktail menu.

On The Gaming Front

120816_yesminsterbowlingBowling is hands down the star attraction here. With a total of six lanes and a whole new set of bowling pins {and better graphics than before}, a game costs you INR 300 per person, all seven days. Shoes are available, but not compulsory, so you can still continue to play à la Fred Flintstone, if that’s your jam.

There are also two pool tables {a game starts at INR 350}, air hockey, foosball, basketball, boxing, Alien Attack {it’a video game} and even a mechanical bull ride for those who want a taste of the Spanish sport {don’t worry, there’s lots of cushioning around}.

Setting The Bar

One of the best features of the arcade which was previously missing is the bar, which boasts of some exciting cocktails such as Tea Time {gin and Earl Grey tea}, Choco Essex {dark rum and chocolate}, and Yes The Weather {vodka, strawberries and ice cream}. There is also a range of wines, whiskey and beer, both domestic and imported.

The Grub

The menu has been created by chef Krishna, who has trained in French cuisine, and worked all over the globe. He’s put together a bunch of dishes that can’t be described as anything but fusion. There is a Mutton Kanti, a Kashmiri dish paired with a typically French potato rosti, a Pizza Quattro Stagioni, which is a traditionally Italian pizza with oriental influences, and a Ras Malai with a chocolate terrine.

Apart from these slightly unusual dishes, they also have the usual fare including soups, burgers, sandwiches, grills, and an all-day breakfast menu comprising eggs and waffles.

So, We’re Saying…

Whenever you’re in the mood for a fun outing with quality food and lots of fun and games, bookmark Yes Minister.
