We Gurgaonites mostly think that a typical weekend should be a fine dining at high end restaurant along with some vodka to go with. But we tend to overlook the better food experience that we get at some of the best Dhabas in Gurgaon, keeping the pocket intact. Yes, Dhabas have always been underrated for them being tacky places that serve oily and unhygienic food but the below list of places surely break that notion with their super pure and delectable food!
Dhaba by Claridges
This is a unique dining experience outside the hotel premises in a quintessential Dhaba style incorporating signature Dhaba elements like nalka chandeliers, nimbu-mirchi lights, vintage Bollywood posters, truck art elements and an actual truck that you can enjoy your meal on – all enhanced with the masala of Bollywood music. Fun ambiance to go with lovely rustic Indian dishes such as Kanastari Baingan, Dhaba Chilli Chicken, Balti Meat, Tandoori Mutton Chaap, Amritsari Fish, Dal Makhani, Veg Gulouti Kebabs etc, this place serves you soulful purity amidst luxury.

Needless to say this is one of the best Dhabas in Gurgaon!
