NOIDA’s food scene never impressed us until the recent developments happened. One area in NOIDA which is coming up in a big way is Sector 41. Home to Theos, a gaming arena and couple other joints, this is a nice hangout place for college and office goers alike. The recent additions to the list is just going to raise the bar.
18+ Cafe and Lounge (what a quirky name 😉) opened its doors a few days back to the public and we got a chance to experience it first hand. A lovely place by all means, this one’s going to be the favorite with people.
One thing that definitely stands out among everything is their quirky LED sheeshas. We didn’t try any, but we hear they are amazing. A cosy one with about 50 covers, 18+ Cafe and Lounge has comfortable seating for large and small groups.

The food menu is varied – ranging from fast food – burgers (a variety of them), pizzas, sandwiches, momos & global appetizers to Indian main course, Chinese & Pasta among others. The food is generally good – sauteed mushroom was simple but flavorful; the vegetarian alfredo penne pasta (250) tasted good, but we missed some vegetables; the momos ( 155) are good; the pizza ( 250) has a vast options list and is well made (ours was a little burnt, and was changed on request); grilled fish in lemon butter sauce is very nice, both the sauce and fish, but the accompaniment of mashed potato could see some improvement; their french fries ( 135) are amazing, sprinkled with the in-house masala, they taste very good and kept the crunch even when they had spent some time on the table; mutton rogan josh ( 375) and dal makhani ( 275) with naan from the Indian menu were well made too.

From their dessert menu, we tried the Cheesecake (185), Banoffee Ball ( 165) and Gulab Jamun ( 125) – banoffee ball are amazing.

They have an extensive beverage menu with mocktails, shakes and smoothies. The banana-nutella shake (165) was the only one that we could suggest some improvements for, other drinks were good.
They have an assortment of breakfast trays (300-395) to share and you can order them when in a group (or have a humongous appetite 😊) – look for options and choose the best suited to you.
