Nothing beats good food. I am someone who lives to eat and I can say this without a shadow of a doubt that I work at the perfect place. We at POPxo, order food on a daily basis (sorry, not sorry). From Chinese to Mexican, you will see people getting takeout every hour of the day.
It’s safe to say that team POPxo loves to work hard and party even harder! So we thought of sharing this happiness with you too. We have curated a list of the 20 best restaurants in India that Team POPxo loves to order from. PS: We have teams in Bombay, Gurgaon, Delhi and Kolkatta so you’re in for a treat. Like literally! Read on to satiate those hunger pangs!
Our office moved to Gurgaon late last year and being true Delhiites we had to find a place to order momos from. After a lot of trial and error, we found Jalsa - The Ladakhi Kitchen and these were truly indulgent. With loads of oil and firey dip alongside, this place definitely is the best place to order Desi Chinese in Gurgaon. Unfortunately, going according to my 2020 resolution, this will probably be the last two weeks I can actually eat them.

Peking Tom is my go-to restaurant for Chinese food. It’s like 5 mins away from my home in Malad and whenever I feel super lazy to cook, I end up ordering from this place. As far as quality and quantity are concerned, they’re the best. Please try their lobster chilli garlic basil, squid rings, hot & spicy roast pork and chilli garlic noodles. If you order many things from this place, they always give you honey noodles as a complimentary dessert!

I haven’t ever been to this restaurant, so I don’t know what it looks like but I live in the Juhu area and if you do too, I would highly recommend - Local World Cuisine. I usually order butter chicken and a garlic naan from there and I’m absolutely addicted! It's turned into my weekly-weekend binge. Best butter chicken in the area, without a doubt!

We have our lunch before 2 pm so by evening we’re craving for an snack with our tea/coffee. That’s when we discovered these beautifully fried chicken strips from PUL, which is a delivery-only outlet in Gurgaon. These Hot & Spicy Chicken strips are the spiciest things ever you’ll eat (I eat a lot of spicy food and they still manage to make my insides burn!). But they are SO worth it! They come with a variety of dips. We prefer the Sriracha dip which goes really well with these strips. So, take your pick and get ordering!
(P.S.- I’ve heard their burgers are great too, but yet to try them!)

Breakfast is always a must in the morning. During my search on Uber Eats, I found this place called Tejal’s Kitchen. It delivers amazing homemade Poha and Thepla. This poha reminds me of the one that my mom makes. I am in love with this place. The only problem is that they take time to deliver the food. However, it is absolutely worth the wait!

I am absolutely obsessed with Taco Bell. I have Taco Bell at least 2-3 times a week. Unfortunately, they do not deliver to my house...until last month! Veg Star Wrap, Cheesy Double Decker taco and their Tikka Masala Nachos are my absolute fave. PS: Cannot wait to get married to the love of my life at The Bell in Palm Springs, which is a hotel by Taco Bell. How cool is that?! Do you know what I'm going to do right now? Yes, order from Taco Bell!
- Aayushi Pareek, Writer
I tried Burgerama once and trust me, I have been obsessed ever since! I can’t even begin to tell how good the food is! It just satisfies your soul. Try the double cheese double chicken burger, chicken popcorn, onion rings... actually everything!
PS: I’m feeling hungry as I type so I am going to order it right now!

Chinese food is the best. It changes my mood completely. In fact, I work with people who love Chinese too so it's a win-win for me. We love this place called Asian Haus in Gurgaon. Their cheese and mushroom dim sums are to die for!
- Snigdha Chowdhary, Head Plixxo
A unit of Jalsa, this place has a completely different menu but is equally good. Momos can make me happy at any given point in the day. This place makes the best wheat momos and I simply can't resist them. If you love Tibetian food, then this is the place you should definitely order from the next time.
- Ragini Kapoor, Client Servicing Head
As I get busy all through the day, Swiggy and Zomato are my saviours. I love Chinese and that too the authentic one, not the desi-Chinese! Hence, the restaurant called Chowman is one of my favourites. Ah! The mouth-watering pork roast, delicious kung pao chicken and extremely hot devil’s prawn curry are a few of my favourites! I guess, I spend lion-share of my salary on them (phew!)

I am a conscious eater and like to keep a check on what I am giving my body. And so, I stick with healthy and organic food whenever I'm not eating my home-cooked meals. While on my quest to exploring healthy eating joints that don't compromise on taste, I came across a restaurant chain called 'Healthie'. Ever since I ordered their Lebanese Falafel Sandwich, I was hooked and instantly added the place to my list of Favourites on Swiggy. Go ahead and try their range of sandwiches, bowls, salads, Fit Thalis, and even Khichdi. I bet you, you'll know what I mean when I say that you don't have to compromise on taste to go the 'healthie' way!

The foodie inside me always wants to explore but I was trying to eat healthy for a while and a friend of mine recommended this place called Greenr in Gurgaon. Well, I went there once and now that is one place that I keep ordering from! It's just Magical.
- Akanksha Gautam, Manager - E.comm
If you are looking for Coastal/Seafood or South Indian cuisines, you can give this place a try. Their chicken dosa is an absolute stunner. Other dishes like the Prawn biryani, Chicken 65 and the Mutton Sukka too are absolutely delectable!
- Rahul Ray, Test Lead - Technology
I’m always running late so obviously there’s no time for brekkie! I’ve been relying on Go Gourmet to save me from my early morning hunger pangs! I’m in love with their Sandwiches, Wraps and the Mexican Bowl. The best part? It’s all healthy and reaches me within 20 minutes. Definitely the best for breakfast.
- Harshita Chawla, Associate-Plixxo
I have been searching for a place that delivers good salads. Finally, I stumbled upon this place called 'Salad Company'. I can now eat healthy food that is also tasty! Their Greek salad is the best on the menu.
-Mallika Sarna, Social Media Coordinator
I guess it's pretty evident that we all love to eat good food. How else will we come up with so many places? I feel the most hungry around 4 pm and that is when I feel like binging on junk. I recently discovered this place that not only has good samosas but also great chaat and papdi. My entire team is obsessed with this place.
- Shubham Khatri, Manager, Plixxo
My mother is from Kerala and growing up, I have had the best of the best. Let's just say that it is hard to beat everything that I have had. I recently stumbled upon this place called Malabar Taste Buds which makes the best Appam I have had in Gurgaon. You can have them with Korma or stew. It's not only healthy but super tasty!
- Krithika Kumar, Junior Editor
I have a big sweet tooth and if you ask my friends, you'd know that I order at least one dessert every day. My favourite these days is the most popular Asian chain, Bread Talk. Their fluffy cakes and rolls are just amazing. In fact, I am going to order one right away!
- Rukmini Kapoor, Design Lead
There aren't many options available if you are conscious of what you are eating. Fortunately, I came across Caterspoint in Gurgaon Sector 24 that offers some healthy options that can literally be your life-savers when you don't have the time or energy to cook a healthy meal. And these are delicious too! Love their couscous upma (veg and non-veg) and cilantro and lemon poha, can probably eat either of these every morning for breakfast.
- Ekta Alreja, Deputy Editor
Chai is something that my entire table loves. In fact, we order Chai from Chayoos everyday without fail. Sometimes, even two times in a day. They make the best adrak elaichi chai in the world and I think I am addicted. Apart from that, we also order bun maska and butter chicken open paratha sometimes. Safe to say this is our favourite place in Gurgaon.
