Splattered across either side of Gurgaon’s busy Golf Course Road is DLF Phase 5. And though it’d be a good idea to avoid the road during peak hours, it’s probably a good place to visit during eat hours. Here are some of our favorite eating joints in this area.
The food gem of Phase 5’s Club Drive, Café Five excites the palate with delicious Lebanese grubs that go beyond hummus and pita. Scoff down some delectable Pita Pockets, Falafel and Arabic Pizza.
