An evening at Channel V Spot Cafe- Restaurant Review

Saturday, January 12, 2013 , , 27 Comments

One day BlogAdda peeped my Chrome window and said- Let the treats follow....

Few days later I got an invite to visit and review a wonderful restaurant called- V Spot Cafe + Bar, Gurgaon.

The V Spot Cafe + Bar =


The restaurant is well located in heart of Gurgaon at DLF Phase 4, one of the hang out zones in the town and cheers it got a roof top lounge as well.

A little bit about the restaurant-
Cuisines: Fast Food, Mexican, Lebanese, Italian
Facilities: Dine-in, Bar, Non veg, WiFi, Outdoor seating, Smoking area, Fussball.

I re-visited this place in last week of December and quite liked the ambiance and theme built in. (My first visit was during Philips Foodathon where I barley could consume anything from the restaurant except the event and a huge bill). The place is young and best suited for casual hang outs, coffee, munching, a bit of game and off course some food. An amalgamation of Coffee day, bar and pizza hut marinade, A snack bar kind of eatery.

What I ordered for-
Starters- Soup (souperman) & veg Platter (starters symbol)
Drinks- Bloody Mary
Main course: Pasta (from Russia with love)
Dessert: None

Here's a few snapshot along with the experience we had-


The serving cutlery was good and quite apt. The portions were decent too. Menu was quite enticing with it's radio like design and impressive photography. There are few minuses like the soup was quite watery and no accompanionments like bread, soup sticks were served along.


I took starters recommendation and took Veg platter. The fiery dip was lip smacking. The platter however looked quite enticing with a mix of Paneer, Potato wedges, corn balls and spring rolls. While the former two were yummy, the spring roll was too oily and best avoidable. 



Yeah, you saw it right. A bucket of Tuborg at 499. It's a good offer for beer enthusiast.







Overall I had fun visiting & reviewing V Spot Cafe. The hospitality was good including the staff who displayed very clear and polite behavior. My only regret that it's winter and I couldn't enjoy sitting at the fab terrace lounge they have. Well next time, buddy!

My Overall Rating:- 3.5  3/5
Plus: Ambiance, Locality, Seating, Menu, Cost
Minus: Services & Serving courtesy
Would I like to visit again: Yes
Would I recommend this to others: Yes

    1. Hmmmm I agree that you had bad experience during Foodathon but that was sorely the mistake on organizer's part. You may like to go again. In case in double minds, take me along and we shall have fun! :)

    1. Yup Uma, theme is good but limits mostly to interiors. The locality of the cafe is amazing and the cost is not too high. It was one of my first review for my blog per se and yes, experience was different. Love to do many more :)

      Where r u based out of?

  10. Awesome hang out and pretty affordable when going with a large group of friends. Their menu is a bit weird but you are gonna love the dishes just after you see them on your table. One of those very few places in New Delhi where they offer curly fries.
