For those in the NCR who missed this restro-bar, take heart because Mojo is back once again donning a whole new look
What's your mojo? Asked a colleague in a conspiratorial whisper while we were getting all hot and sweaty attending a programme in Gurgaon. Food, I said, immediately. So off we went in search of food in the middle of the concrete wilderness that Gurgaon is. We didn't have to look around for long.

A short drive later, we arrived at one of the satellite town's many malls which houses Mojo, the once popular restrobar that had shut shop. The place has now opened, with a whole new look. Walk through the spacious corridor bathed in green light (no Mogambos here though), and the space opens up to reveal a swanky bar area, some cosy seating areas for couples and families and the more spacious ones where large groups can enjoy themselves. Shiny disco balls adorn the ceilings. Light plays an important role in the decor here -- changing from red to green to blue to yellow.
The bar is well stocked, serving everything from champagne and sparkling wine to shots and cocktails. The place serves cuisines from across the world. So the menu looks like a hurriedly put together mish mash, serving everything from Dal tarka to Fish n chips, probably keeping families in mind.
When we walked in on a weekday for lunch, the place was empty, but through the course of the meal a large family dropped in and some young professionals came calling, so we figured out that isn't doing too badly to fill up its 70 covers on a weekend when DJs mix varied music.
We ordered some Assorted munchies with cheese bites (not cheesy enough), onion rings and potato wedges, Tandoori prawns (too salty) and Bbq meat balls which were well cooked minced lamb balls flavoured with smoked chilli (but not too hot to put you off) and Bbq sauce.
For main course, we went Indian with a vengeance. There was Dal tadka (yellow dal that was quite tasty) and Rogan josh (good though the gravy was similar to butter chicken) served with hot rotis. Not bad for hungry souls.
