Dera, the elegant Indian restaurant, presents an inviting ambience with its split level design, warm lighting, show kitchen and interactive counter. The menu showcases an array of traditional delicacies from the Punjab with specialities from Amritsar, Lahore and Peshawar yet with a contemporary touch as they are cooked in virgin olive oil. Mobile trolleys serving fresh phulkas (Indian breads), as well as delicious dal-tadka (tempered pulses), add to the enjoyable dining experience. Open only for dinner.

Personalized Service with Good food

Pleasant experience entertaining guests at Taj Dera. Chef Yogesh dished out some modified low calorie veggi stuff at a short notice and personally attended to us.Service was good. Seating layout can be better. In a group we felt little squeezed.

Excellent service and excellent fool. We chose vegetarian thali. Appetisers and a starter were served separately. The chef came to check that everything was ok.It was more than ok. On the way out he said that if we came again he would select different dishes for us for the thali. Sadly we are only here for one night!

Never been disappointed ever. The Dal Makhni is yum. Bhatti Murg and Raan are all time favourites. Their Lahori Naan is special. Chatpata Mushroom and stuffed kulcha are worth mentioning. Top it with Kulfi.

It is good Indian cuisine restaurant but with so much quantity that waste is bound to happen. Thali is a good choice for any individual without a companion. One suggestion...not to do experiment with Indian sweet like Gulab Jamun..that taste better in original. Very polite service by Sanman, Rajveer and Chef Yogesh.

We tried chef special dishes: Pashtuni chicken with Lahori Naan and they were yummy. Pashtuni chicken is a bit too spicy so not for everyone, but do try lahori naan here. For dessert, we had gulab jamun but it was too hot when served; these subtle things about service is what is missing in this hotel overall.

Very good restaurant. Staff quickly recommended we go for the Dera special which essentially was a set menu comprising soup, starters, mains and dessert.
