Delhi Food & Nightlife Guide Awards 2012

Post Date:- 03.06.12

The star-studded Times Food and Nightlife Awards 2012 awarded the best in various categories of cuisines and nightlife venues in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and Faridabad.

Once upon a time, Gurgaon was a Delhi suburb, but the Millennium City has come into its own, and people who live and work in Gurgaon don't need to travel to Delhi every day. Gurgaon now, like Delhi, offers great food and nightlife options in most categories, and so it was only fair that we select the best from both cities and present them separately. You'll find that many of the important awards have winners from Delhi as well as Gurgaon, and some even from Noida and Faridabad.

The winners are divided into 'star category hotel restaurants' and 'standalone', and also, we always have our eyes, ears, especially noses, open to sniff out new aromas, and like to honour the newcomers who show most promise - hence the 'noteworthy newcomer' awards.

For instance, Megu, the new Japanese outlet at The Leela Palace, one of the exciting new outlets in the city, will be watched keenly in the future, as it is a serious contender and has shown a great deal of promise.

The standalone restaurants do not have the backing of a star hotel, who have the money to hire the best - chefs, ambience and service. Thus, they are awarded separately by us to encourage such restaurants to grow. The star hotel restaurants get to take home their awards, while standalones win theirs. Every one's represented at the Times Food and Nightlife Awards.

The best in the food and beverage industry may have taken their awards for this year home, but this shouldn't stop you from voting on Log on to the site, surf for your fave food joints and head to the most happening nightclubs around the city. And don't forget to keep writing reviews on Your ratings will help decide next year's winner!
