1. Barbeque Nation
Barbeque Nation is a must visit for a foodie. The concept of live grill on your table makes the dry starters, especially non-veg sizzling and delectable.

They offer a variety of desserts to choose from including dates and Coconut pie, Shahi tukda, Chocolate brownie, Kesari phirni, etc.

2. Ebony, St Laurn Hotel
A strikingly smart and modern place with complementing red and black decor and tables in steel and marble. While you can feast on the Breakfast and Lunch Buffet, dinners are only a la carte. You may choose to go for the whole buffet with a glass of wine/beer or for the express buffet with soup, salad, sandwich and dessert. The Hot ‘n’ Sour Soup is nice, but the salads aren’t particularly innovative. The Rajma Galouti is a vegetarian version of the famous melt-in-the-mouth Galouti Kebab. Equally good is the assorted non-veg kebab platter, Khazana-e-Lazeez.
Those of you who don’t like spicy things can try Parma Chicken, an Italian dish, (chicken breast stuffed with Parmesan Cheese) that is served with spaghetti and Napolitan Sauce. Even the Thai Pineapple Fried Rice are good. Dessert includes Darsaan (deep-fried honey noodles) and the all-time favourite, Chocolate Mud Pie. The restaurant is quiet and is just the kind of place you should go to for an uninterrupted meeting or a quiet dinner.

5. Charcoal Grill
Priced reasonably, the restaurant offers sumptuous Indian Cuisine and few options in Oriental. The staff is courteous and swift. Not a very big place, and thus, generally remains non-irritatingly soft on ears. There is no music though, not even recorded, though they have a LCD to catch up with any match, that you may be interested in.
The food will be liked by kids, as well as adults. Dig into mutton dishes and chicken kebabs. Both will melt in the mouth. The Keema Nan is to die for. The buffet prices are pretty reasonable and the service is excellent.
