Have You Been To Unforked by SMAAASH?

In this blog post, I review Unforked, a new casual dining restaurant in Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, Delhi.


For the uninitiated, Unforked is brought to you by the same folks who gave you SMAAASH - one of India's most popular gaming and entertainment centers that combines sports, virtual reality, music, and dining into an immersive, evolved, interactive, and innovative social experience for everyone.

The brainchild of Shripal Morakhia, Founder and Chief Imagination Officer, SMAAASH endorses 'Make in India' products suitable for a global play. SMAAASH has one of the largest world-class gender and geography neutral portfolio of games, comprising a current repertoire of 15 games (45 games are under development).

Last November, SMAAASH launched its new center in Ambience Mall, Vasant Kunj, in the esteemed presence of Sachin Tendulkar, the cricketing legend and master blaster who continues to remain the brand ambassador of SMAAASH since its inception in 2012.

It was indeed a dream come true to see and hear the Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar​ live in person today at the newly​ launched SMAAASH - India's most popular urban sports park ​- ​in Ambience Malls, Vasant Kunj. After the recent acquisition, SMAAASH has transformed the earlier bluOs into the multi-sensorial experience of SMAAASH. There were double celebrations at the event, as the master blaster also unveiled the new brand logo of SMAAASH and the brand ethos of "Can't Stop Playing." The newly revived 50,000 sq. ft center​ is the next link in the chain of the country's premier urban sports parks. ​This new outlet of SMAAASH has LaserBlast - a trippy Laser Tag arena for group games. All the sports enthusiasts can experience unique adrenaline rush with a variety of highly advanced virtual reality games like Finger Coaster, Jurassic Park, Walk The Plank and much more, at th​is outlet. SMAAASH Cricket - the 360 degree cricket simulator is the only one where one can experience firsthand the exhilaration of facing cricket legends like Anil Kumble, Shane Warne, Wasim Akram and of course the ​little master Sachin Tendulkar. The outlet also has ​Twilight Bowling - the very romantic and exhilarating UV lit bowling lanes, which will get many a heart racing. The space maintains a vibrant balance between energizing and yet a chilled out ambiance, where one can hang with friends and family. Meanwhile, the in-house cafe and bar at SMAAASH ensure​s​ that one enjoys hearty meals and heady drinks during the fun gaming sessions with the gang. In NCR, SMAAASH already had three centers in Gurugram (Cyberhub and Sector 29) and in Noida (Mall of India), which are immensely popular with guests. SMAAASH in Vasant Kunj will attract the fun-loving and thrill-seeking consumers to come and experience a new level of entertainment with cutting edge thrills. https://smaaash.in/ For more updates, keep following @rahulprabhakar on Instagram 👈 #smaaash #sachintendulkar #masterblaster #littlemaster #cricket #entertainment #arcadegames #bowling #lasergame #cantstopplaying #gamepark

Taking into consideration the brand ethos of "Can't Stop Playing", the transformation of bluO into the multi-sensorial experience of SMAAASH is considered by many as a breeze of fresh air.

My initial impression of the newly revived 50,000 square feet center is that it is unarguably one of the most premier urban sports centers in the country, with highly advanced virtual reality games like Finger Coaster, Jurassic Park, Walk The Plank, and much more.

My personal favorite though is the SMAAASH Cricket - the 360-degree cricket simulator, which is perhaps the only game where you can experience firsthand the exhilaration of facing cricket legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kumble, Shane Warne, Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, Lasith Malinga, etc.
