Speaking of such eateries in town, we cannot help but mention Healthy Panda, located in Gomti Nagar.

Free coffee & muffins; 20% off on your bill for the inaugural week

Healthy Panda has relocated to Vineet Khand now and this outlet is much bigger and better with an outdoor seating arrangement, a dedicated workstation and 48-seater capacity inside. The entire cafe has heavy tones of wood and mellow lighting to accompany it, which makes for a cozy hangout point, especially during winter evenings.

When here, you can even take a seat by their book rack and choose a good read to spend your time coupled with any of their ahhhmazing coffees or if you have your buddies with you, then you could even challenge them for a foosball match. There are several other board games kept here so getting bored isn't an option at Healthy Panda. To make it better further, for the inaugural phase, Healthy Panda is handing out free coffee and muffins upon your visit and you can even avail a 20% off on your bill for the entire week.

Speaking about the food menu, in a first, the team has included Chinese and Tandoor options which will have you confused for a good 10-15 minutes or more because they're all so tempting! Healthy Panda has also come up with a Signature Chicken Mushroom Pot Pie and Shepherd's Pot Pie, for which we have really strong fillings, as both have won our hearts at the first dig. We especially loved the latter, which comes with a lamb keema and mushroom bed blanketed with creamy mashed potatoes and a distinctive taste.

For your sweet tooth, they have stocked the dessert section with stellar Sundae choices too and it's gonna be binge-fest here for sure. We'd also recommend the Baked Zucchini and British Fish & Chips if you're looking to relish a not-so-heavy meal and to wash it all down, you could go for any of the floats, coolers, smoothies or shakes!

So what we're saying is-

Healthy Panda is open to serve you and needless to say, they're undertaking all the required precautions to ensure you of a safe eating-out experience. So if you have an upcoming hangout plan with your friends but are still looking for places to chill at, then give this cafe a thought and we promise, Panda won't disappoint!
