Eat your Heart out @ Cafe G, Crowne Plaza

Cafe G is Crowne Plaza Today, Gurgaon’s signature, all day restaurant. The past few months, Wildfire, their Brazilian Restaurant has been closed for renovation, {though now open} making Cafe G the only fine-dine restaurant in the hotel. Known for its Sunday Brunch and vast buffet, Cafe G has a quite loyal base of diners. I have been visiting Cafe G for quite a few years now and their buffet can be a remarkable dinner experience. However, A La carte lacks behind with a limited menu.

The ambience is effortlessly formal with elegant adornments, personal seating sections and a recently added Sushi Bar. The service is prompt and efficient on most days, however on certain days you can be left unattended for a long time and might even have to wait for water {especially during dinner}!

The Morning Breakfast buffet is absolutely delightful. A spread of fresh juices, fruits, cornflakes and muesli to begin, you can go the traditional English way with sausages, baked beans, scrambled eggs, cheese and toasted bread, ending with sweet Danish pastries or the American way with waffles, pancakes and sunny side up egg {of course accompanied by Nutella, Hershey’s, maple syrup and about anything else you want} and you would be happy as a clam. If you fancy a light breakfast, choose from a beautiful variety of jams to chaperone your toast and butter to accompany the croissant. The Live station for eggs ensures you get them cooked just the way you like : poached, scrambled, omelette or fried! However, staying in the Multi-cuisine theme they also have selections for North and South Indian cuisines including Puri-aloo, Sambar-idli, which switch on daily basis to ensure diners do not get bored. Not forgetting the Asian roots, there are choices for dim-sums available. Keeping in mind your waking up routine, choose tea or coffee the way you like; english, green, black or cappuccino, latte, espresso.

Lebensmittel Insight : Dim-sums are small bite-sized dishes, associated more with the tea tradition (yum cha) than a complete meal. Traditionally eaten during morning or brunch, they have now become acceptable as an appetiser during dinner. In earlier times, people used to eat dim-sums after morning walks to regain energy and during long Sunday brunch with family.


Lunch and Dinner Buffets have an alluring and extensive spread of food. Italian, Indian, Middle-Eastern, Chinese with a few different and unique dishes from other cuisines constitute the everyday lay-outs. The cheese platter is my favourite place to begin! Brie is one of the usuals and my favourite, accompanied by crackers, is the best way to start any meal. Followed by al dente pasta in your own customised sauce with vegetables/meat. The Indian section has a quite the variety of kebabs and curries. Dips like Baba ghanoush, hummus, beetroot tahina make for some delicious palate cleaners after the kebabs, along with freshly baked pita bread. The quality is never compromised in this restaurant, whether its cheese, chicken, lamb, pork or fish {normally Basa is favoured} you can expect the best.


Coming to my dearest part of buffet : desserts. A counter I constantly hover around and usually spend more time at, than any of the other sections. Desserts are always a delight at Crowne Plaza. Whether it’s the usuals like Mousse, Gulab-Jamun, Baked Yoghurt, Custard with fruits, Warm Chocolate Brownie with Ice cream or new additions or specials like Baklava, you will not be disappointed.

Overall, I would recommend Cafe G for their buffet, more so because of the overall experience and vast variety than solely flavour {even though the food is delicious, the fact that there is so much to choose from, just makes it better!}. You can dig-in and be amazed by something new every time and thats why buffet at Crowne Plaza is one of my regular places for dinner. Desserts are Lebensmittel Approved!
