Sector 29 Gurugram has become the hub of restaurant and we witness a new launch every other day, so when we received this invite for the pre-launch, review meet I was like- hmmmm another one. Though somewhere the name DOCKYARD amused me.
This fascinating double floored huge space has double bar, one in each floor. They also have an outdoor sitting area. We instantly have fallen in love with super huge wall to wall Led screen at the basement ,well the led screen, the shipyard feel décor, smoking room and the brewery unit, all together makes it very attractive and inviting and true to its theme, it’s a wow place. And yes! it actually gives you a feel of eating in a dockyard.
During the launch the owners, designers, chef management all were personally present and were interacting- explaining about their new baby and pampering the guest.
Let’s talk about food:
The moment we were handed the menu we were impressed by the health drink section-mock tails with the health quotient wow again, and the proud manager suggested that we try each one and glad that we did.
we started with the health drinks- Carroappy was a mix of carrot and pineapple, Lavish a fusion of basil and cucumber , Dockyard Sailor a combination of pineapple and spinach, Taste of House, Cumin queen (flavours of kitchen), 3 Sum Delight beetroot, carrot and amla was thick and actually a detox drink, Kiwi Melon Spritzer(kiwi and melon), Blends of Kings had interesting flavours of mango, pineapple and ginger, Eve Fav was an apple and cucumber drink, and finally Melon vs Ginger was a thick combination of fruits and veggies.
Each drink was unique in flavour and must have if you in a mood for a high fibre health drink. Interesting but we did miss the regular party mocktails in the menu. However the cocktail section lookd interesting
Along with the drinks we started with the Dockyard classic mixed Mesclun Feta & Caramelised Nuts Salad -fresh and nice.with Oregano Vinaigrette dressing ,next on the table was Corn & Cheddar Cheese Spring Rolls I love the garlic tomato sauce it was served with spring rolls were also perfectly done
Honey Chili Baby Potato, Tandoori Phool Jugalbandi .acrunchy broccoli and cauliflower was cruncy and flavoursom.
, Doodh Dahi ki Galauti which was medallions of Lauki and dahi on ulta tawa paranthas was the hero of the starter section as I in my wildest dream could not have imagined that the boring Ghiya could taste so delicious that I would ask for a second serving. Kairi (raw mangoes chutney based) ka Paneer Tikka was soft and juicy, Veggie Bruschetta bar, Thyme scented Mushroom Soup, and Pizza Giardino (mix Veggies)were also good.
For the main course we ordered Paneer Khurchan Platter and Khao Suey (Burmese broth with noodles). I liked both the dishes, and while we were lost in the taste of the delicious main course.
Chef came over to our table and started explaining about the desserts that he was going to serve us. Chef Swatantra’s suggested we try Schezwan Pepper Tiramisu, and Sumatra Rich Chocolate Mousse.I specially loved choco Mousse ,totally different from regular mousse it was thick sinful chocolate with spice twist to it, absolutely delicious ,loved the spicy punch.Chef also made sure that we try out the other two desserts, Gur ka Parantha with Vanilla ice cream,it was delicious parantha with stuffing of Gur and Saffaron ,We enjoyed it to the core, the second dessert we were served was Crispy fried Ice cream with hot Chocolate Sauce. Which was good as well.in the dessert section the Choco Mousse was the show stopper for me
It’s a fabulous restaurant which serves health drinks, awesome eats with attractive presentation, super hospitality, and makes you feel as if you are eating inside a shipyard. Dockyard surely is one of the best launches I have attended in recent times. We Know and wish Dockyard a smooth sailing.
