Amazing place. You are blown off by the music. The drinks are great and the music brings the place to life. The crowd is great and the ambience is wonderful. A must go place if you are in Sector 29, GURUGRAM.

To start with, I'll say I am not a beer connoisseur but I have had brewed beers at a lot of places. But somehow here in Batli 29, I didn't like any of their 6 beers. I don't know but I somehow couldn't strike a liking to any of the 6. Though I went with one whose name I don't remember but yeah it wasn't a delight either. Moving on to food, food was ordinary. Ordered corn and cheese springs rolls, neither the taste of cheddar was prominent nor the taste of corns. Also ordered wine ripped tomato Bruschettas. The topping was good but there was something odd about the bread. It was harder than the normal toasted bread and that degraded the overall taste. Makhani pasta was okayish too. Nothing too great nothing too bad. For dessert, we ordered almond and chocolate pudding and what we got instead was almond brownie with vanilla ice-cream. I think there is a difference between a pudding and a brownie. And if you intend to serve brownie, then please mention exactly that in the menu. Brownie with ice-cream is a good dessert in itself, you don't need to camouflage it with a name that sounds more exotic. The brownie with ice cream was good with ample amount of almond flakes in the brownie. Ambience of this place is nice and it has a lot of seating capacity.

While the owners of the place may be patting their backs for coming up with a name as fun & quirky as “batli 29”; a clever reference to the place being a brewery and being located in the buzzing sector-29 market of Gurgaon; I, for one, after my visit to the place felt that this name was not a good one for the place. The reason being that while it projects the place as a brewery (which it is primarily) but it is something which greatly undermines the fantastic culinary experience this place is capable of providing. To be honest, I was more blown away by the amazing dishes they serve than the cocktails they concoct, making this place for me not a “batli”29, but a “TOTALi” 29 as it for sure is a complete package.

Occupying an entire building in the far corner of the Sector-29 market (if you are coming from the metro station side), the place lies at the point where the downtown corridor and the walking street corridor intersects. The place is spread over three floors wherein the ground floor houses a pizzeria, first floor has been given a lounge like look and an option for open seating at the rooftop. While the designing of the pizzeria area has been kept to minimal with just the wall alongside the entrance stylishly adorned with empty bottles, the fun begins at the first floor with the typical lounge ambiance having comfy couches, a huge bar running along an entire wall of the dining area and a glass chamber where you can see the brewing containers for yourself. Owing to the presence of huge windows in one corner, the ambiance can be greatly varied from a bright one for afternoon luncheon or kitties to a dimly lit one for night time partying.

As has become a sort of tradition now with places which are primarily a brewery, our meal began with trial shots of their home brews. While the pilsner and wheat beer were liked by the ladies a lot, owing to their light potency, Indian pale ale was the one I liked the most as it was the headiest of the three. Thoroughly impressed with their in-house collection, we decided to stick with beer only for the next round but cranked up the level a bit by ordering some of their beer based cocktails. Shandy, end zone and batli bomb were asked for. The quantity they serve is impressive and while shandy and end zone were more on the lighter side, batli bomb with its constituents of beer, tequila, vodka, rum literally explodes in your mind blowing your senses to bits. For those who prefer trodding down the conventional path, they serve some pretty mean whiskey sour and LIIT too. Teetotalers need not fret either as despite the name suggesting it to be an out & out boozefest of a place, in reality they serve some real delightful mocktails like batli’s delight and batli’s punch as well.

While my mind kept on saying on the loop not to have much high hopes from the food section based on past experience at few other breweries in this particular market, still a vast amount of starters were called for. Why?! Because, we were starving from travelling such long distances to reach this place. Crunchy corn, chilli cheese toast, batli street bites, tomato & mozzarella, Mediterranean platter, surkh mirch ka paneer tikka, sliders, bikaneri papad k spring rolls were the items that were called for for starters and it was the deliciousness of these only that provided the sec.29-UNlike experience with the food performing at par (with some dishes, even better than) the booze.

Crunchy corn and cheese toast/bruschettas have been two of my preferred beer (batli, here) bites for quite sometime and amply topped with bell pepper and onions, they played their part beautifully here as well. For batli street bites, they offer you the choices of masala peanuts, channa zor garam and surprise surprise, jhal muri. Jhalmuri option was the one I was immediately attracted to, as I had developed a liking for it while trying it a couple of times at C R Park’s famous Durga Puja pandals. Wisely enough, they ask you beforehand only whether you want it fiery or not as it can get too hot to handle for many. Tomato & mozzarella was a salad that came before us with an exquisite presentation, a presentation so beautiful that it’ll momentarily teleport you to some fine dine place. Alas though that the taste wasn’t able to provide the proper backing as the dish was way too bland for my liking.

Mediterranean platter, surkh mirch ka paneer tikka and bikaneri papad ka spring roll were three things that deserve a special mention and earned a shoutout for their chef. While the former was THE best ever Mediterranean platter I’ve EVER had, the latter two dishes bowled us over with their amazing mix of innovation and flavorfulness. The Mediterranean veg anti pasti platter constituted of bursting at seams, pita breads, because of overload of chunks of paneer in it alongwith a spicy mix of veggies and perfectly made falafel served with some of the best dips you’ll ever get to lay your hands upon making it as a whole a MUST ORDER dish here. Surkh mirch ka paneer tikka again was by far the most flavorsome and awesome rendition of the classic dish, paneer tikka I’ve tried anywhere, all the way from street stalls to fine dine. The dish Bikaneri papad ka spring roll was a true revelation as even after seeing and tasting the dish was I just not able to wrap my head around the concept that papads could be used as a covering for making spring rolls too. Not only an unbelievable concept but it tasted unbelievably good too.

Such smashing starters ensured that we couldn’t leave the place without trying out few dishes for the mains and so loaded batli29 pizza and karari thai curry were asked for alongwith the staple order of dal and paneer, which have been clubbed together intelligently here under the name paneer tikka makhmala. All the dishes were good but lacked the wow factor the starters enticed.

It din’t took them long though to get the magic flowing back again as their signature dessert, blueberry kheer is to die for. Kheer is something which is being experimented with a lot in the past couple of years and having tried its various versions like paan, rose, beetroot etc, I can confidently proclaim that their take with blueberries is the BEST of the lot. The eagerness with which the 6 jars of this dessert were polished off was like as if this was the first dish we were eating after going hungry for a week :D

With an amazing array of dishes that not only complement but sometimes even surpasses the brewery factor, Batli29 is the BEST this market has to offer.
a MUST VISIT place!!!

Sector-29, Gurgaon now a days is famous for nothing else but as one of the biggest hub of breweries, having one brewery after another opening here every fortnight, making the area one of the most happening and favorite among the people who love to drink and party hard. While till now the main focus of all these outlets seemed to be solely on the liquor/beer section, without caring much for food, one outlet has taken upon itself to despite being in the same field, to stand apart from the rest. Batli29 is a newly opened brewery cum restaurant in the Sector-29 Market of Gurgaon and is the one which is setting new standards for other breweries of the area by coming up with some amazing dishes to go along well with your drinks.

Located on the left most corner of the Sector-29 Market, the place is easy to locate with a big Batli29 logo shining right on top of it. The place is easily accessible through both Public and Private Transport with the private one being preferred one here as there is no dearth of parking around it. Occupying an entire building, the place has given a different look and feel to all the levels. The ground floor has a pizzeria with some stylish posters on the wall and a rack full of empty bottles, or as they are known, Batli, with minimal seating, 8-10 max. The first floor has been designed with a Lounge like theme in mind with a huge bar in one corner with stools to settle down along it, followed by the usual tables, chairs and couches melee. So it is not just the drinks and dishes, but seating as well you find variety with. The first floor is quite a spacious one and has ample space for about 50-60 people to settle down at a time. For those who prefer their drinks in the open space can go upto their roof top section as well. Every section has been designed and decorated well with posters, message, paintings, mostly related to the youth, which I felt was a very nice touch.

Visited it few days back on a Sunday Afternoon with couple of friends. As it was a very hot afternoon, seating outside was simply out of question and so we straightaway opted for the first floor seating. In the far corner of the first floor, they are proudly showcasing the big containers in which the magical beers are brewed. With a view of the outside through the huge window on the left, we decided to settle down there only. And as soon as we settled down, the menu was called for as excited we were. Started off with their home brew shots of Pilsner, Wheat Beer and Indian Pale ale out of which while the pilsner and wheat beer were on the lighter side, Indian Pale ale was more as per the liking of the boys as it headier compared to the other two.

With quite an impressive start to the foodie fairytale, next we ordered for another trio of beer drinks which included cocktails like Shandy, end zone and the Batli Bomb. Point worthy noting is that they serve some truly appreciable quantity which does complete justice to the prices. In this trio, Batli bomb scored over the other two thanks to its constituents like tequila, vodka & rum and making it strongest of all. Having had bad food related experience at various outlets here, we were in a bit of confusion as to what to try from the food section. But it turned out to be a totally opposite scenario over here. While the drinks were good, it was the food that took the meet up to the next level. And it was happy faces all around the table after tasting some of their starters like the Crunchy Corn, Chilli Cheese Toast, Batli Street Bites, Mediterranean Platter, Bikaneri Papad ke Spring Rolls to name a few. While the Mediterranean Platter was awesome having pita breads, chunks of paneer, veggies and falafel served along with an amazing trio of dips but it was the Bikaneri Papad ke Spring rolls which was something I haven’t even heard of and the dish was the clear winner of the day for me. In the Batli street bites section, you have been given choices between masala peanuts, chana zor garam and jhal muri. Jhal muri for its uniqueness was asked for by everyone and as per our requirement a bowl of spicy Jhal Muri arrived at our table in a couple of minutes time.

After such amazing starters, who would skip on their mains and so both Thai Curries and Batli loaded pizza were ordered alongwith Peeli dal and Paneer Tikka Makhmala. The mains were good but not as good as the starters were. While the yellow dal will make you feel homesick, the soft paneer in thick gravy in a combination of spices will restore the restaurant factor into the meal.
Even after two course of meal, they had something to surprise us with in the form of their amazing range of desserts. Blueberry Kheer and Kala forest were the two we got our hands onto. Kala forest was a mix of cake and gulab jamun, a real delicious combination of cream and soft gulab jamuns while the Blueberry kheer was a nice attempt by the chef of presenting the normal kheer but with a blueberry taste and that serving in small cute jars made it not only soothing to eyes but taste buds as well. One of the finest dessert one can ever have anywhere.

SHANDAR, JABARDAST, ZINDABAD are the only three words that can suitably describe my experience of this place. Highly recommended !!
