Spectacular! Probably the closest word that can truly describe the grandeur and detailing that has gone into bringing out this beautiful kingdom which so far which could only be dreamt of.
Every state pavilion has a distinct style and character which were delightful to observe. The different folk performances were far better orchestrated than what we have so far experienced on Doordarshan. People have compared KoD with Delhi Haat but I disagree. The basic concept of Pan Indian food and shopping may seem familiar but the differences are many like; KoD is completely air-conditioned, prices are fixed and the demographic of audience is different.
place comprises of : Lal Quila of Delhi,Truck from Punjab,Train from Mumbai, ”Nawabi thhaat” from Lucknow , beach of Goa, Huts of Kerela, temple of Chennai, Karnataka, Orissa giving feeling of South India.Addition to this some there were some entertaining shows going on from time to time like Rajasthani Dance , Juggling show, Sambhapuri dance, Jugli dance… To cheer up the kids 2 people dressed up in costumes like monkeys were also there who were showing typical monkey harkatein.

IndiJoe belong to BJN group. It serves American, Mexican and Italian among others.The restaurant is spacious, the interior is done up in cool, dark shades; sports gear and photographs occupy every inch of the wall, a pensive miniature statue of liberty in verdigris preside over the middle bay, streaks of blood red fire sprinkler plumbing stand out against the black ceiling like exposed veins. Bright, translucent, green and blue stain glass lamp shades with flower patterns hang over illuminated tables, a collage of Hollywood stars – Harrison Ford, John Travolta, Marilyn Munroe and Sylvester Stallone decorate a side wall. Induction heated hot plates line the buffet counter against a frescoed back wall, there are separate Pasta and Chaat counters also near the buffet area, the bar counter near the entrance is empty at lunch hour with a lone barman bent over polishing glasses. Enrique Iglesias and Kenny Rogers issue softly from the music player. Eight of us share the only round table in the restaurant in a kind of pre-prandial limbo waiting to begin lunch.
An aromatic cream of chicken soup accompanied by no-so-great Coastal Fried Fish in BBQ Sauce and tangy-sweet Honey Ginger Chicken tee me off. I give vegetarian stuff a pass and pile my plate with fillets of Grilled Fish in Lemon Butter Sauce and some Murg Shahi Patiala with thick spicy gravy to go with Paranthas. My dessert is a generous dollop of strawberry mousse and a heap of assorted fruits – mostly musk melon, pineapple and water melon. The lunch is infinitely satisfying and call for suppressed burps – which is the stomach’s way of announcing deep satisfaction.
For Rs.350/- + taxes (Mon – Thru), IndiJoe is a definite bargain – the staff are friendly and helpful, food bountiful and diverse, the restaurant is clean, spacious and very relaxing.
Fri – Sun the going rate is Rs.425/- + taxes which includes additional dishes such as prawns. On Fridays there is also a live band from 9.00 PM onwards.

“Vapour” a new pub and microbrewery in Gurgaon at the Megacity mall on MG Road, has covered all the ground that a nice watering hole possibly can. It has a huge terrace with a view, there is a distinct dance floor with the DJ kiosk and all the shabang, huge dining area and on top of it all it is a microbrewery, with six huge stainless steel containers fixed behind the bar counter, offering several brews on any given day.
Vapour could potentially be ‘the’ hangout place in Gurgaon for the decent pub crawlers who want to avoid the brawls and also want to have a good time. Besides fresh beer the liquor menu quite elaborate and offers a variety of cocktails and beer combos like Jaeger bomb etc. Some interesting ones are: refreshing aperitif Ersh made with kiwi pulp, lime and a shot of premium lager. Hangmans blood is a dark lager and cream, topped with black grape juice.

This bar is one of those recently discovered secrets of Juhu beach. Please don’t ruin it.
In the sea-facing backyard of the Novotel hotel, Gadda Da Vida its gaining notoriety as the “first date to impress” venue.
A quick chat with the bar manager tells us that the bar’s been named after 1960s psychedelic band Iron Butterfly’s massive hit single.
The interiors feature black walls, shiny upholstery and wire mesh chandeliers, while expats swagger in to hang their feet up on the polished rattan ottomans and bean bags outside.
The crashing waves of the Arabian Sea and the mint-loaded Caprioshkas make an excellent combination.
Music always helps, and the DJ gets everyone familiar with electro jazz followed by dance anthems from European mix masters such as Bob Sinclar post midnight — just in time for the swish set to start showing up on the weekends.
Swanky it is, and definitely fair priced, Gadda Da Vida is far more enjoyable on a mid-week night.
The menu passed the fresh hummus litmus test and their seafood platter or the famed snapper shashlik is equally fresh too. PIzzas are passable.
