If you are looking for comfort Indian dishes and unusual food combinations from across the country, Comorin at Gurgaon’s Two Horizon Centre is where you should be headed for a finely crafted meal.

Comorin, owned and operated by EHV, a part of the Old World Hospitality group which has created over a dozen much-loved restaurant brands including Chor Bizarre and Indian Accent, is a modern Indian restaurant that elevates classic comfort foods to the next level. The menu split into small, large and XL plates, comprises Indian street foods, regional favourites, and touches of nostalgia. Be it a vada pav or idli, the menu is full of food that feels familiar yet different.

Lemon gunpowder idli with cashewnuts makes for a perfect small plate.

Under the supervision of Executive Chef Dhiraj Dargan, each dish is a celebration of the diversity of Indian flavours. Our favourites from the small plates were Haleem, smooth and melt-in-your-mouth, served with bakerkhani; the Lemon Gunpowder Idli with cashewnuts and the creamy Sweet corn Khichdi, topped with Sem Ka Beej to give it an excellent crunch. There is also the tart Andhra Gongura Chicken served with a crisp murukku, and the Dahi Batata Puri which has a couple of wasabi nuts in each puri. Do also try the Comorin Vada Pav served with green chilli thecha and garlic peanut chutney.

Among the large plates the Green Chilli Prawns with Mizoram Black Rice, has a sharp unusual flavour, totally worth trying. Kathal ki Nihari is a great option for vegetarians.  

And to wrap up the delightful meal have the Malai Cheeni Toast — warm brioche topped with malai and sugar and served with honeycomb – it’s childhood memories in a mouthful.

A highlight of Comorin is the bar, with its wide selection of spirits. Mixologist Varun Sharma creates some exceptional cocktails, all made using bitters, mixers and syrups prepared in-house. Their home-made liqueurs such as light khus vermouth (White Wine, Orange Infused Gin, Khus, Juniper, Green Cardamom), dark khus vermouth (Red Wine, Cognac, Khus, Vanilla, Chamomile, Star Anise) and fennel liqueur (Vodka, Fennel, Licorice) can be enjoyed either neat or as part of cocktails. Among the cocktails, we loved the Walnut Sour (Walnut Infused Bourbon, Cassia, Pineapple, Lime, Mole Bitters), Pickled Pom Whiskey (Pickling Spices Infused Bourbon, Pomegranate Salted Shrub, Mole Bitters) and a gin with house-made Jamun cordial and topped with ginger ale.
