Hummus Rasasfour: This is a special type of hummus served with…

The Trial Box, DLF Phase 1, Gurgaon

I would have given them a 3.5 but since Zomato does not allow 0.5 ratings now, so sticking to 3. And this rating accounts for some below par dishes and a harrowing delivery experience. The order came pretty late – one and a half hours after the stipulated time. Additionally there were no carry bags…

Biryani Bhaijaan, Sushant Lok, Gurgaon

Yet another restaurant that promises to tantalize your palate, Biryani Bhaijaan is a nwly opened restaurant in Sushant Lok, Gurgaon.
