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.

GREAT FOOD

I dined at this restaurant and tried some dishes which were not conventional. The choices turned out to be excellent and I enjoyed myself a lot. The staff were very good and courteous.

Maybe the best places for Punjabi Food are not in Five Stars,but the Dhabas.,or at home.The food is quite average in taste.,service was a bit tardy and slow.The rotis were chewy,and nans were not crisp.The non -veg -fish and mutton were good,so was the dal.There is nothing that makes you want to come back again.

If you want assortment of Punjabi Cuisine at one place, then Dera is the place for you.... I liked the Malai Tikka, Fish Tikka and am impressed with the collection of Wines they have.

When I first entered, I even didn't feel that it is a Taj Restaurant. Looks very dull nothing special about it. The staff appeared half asleep even when we reached there at 7pm. The food was also just ok nothing fancy about that.

The restaurant is in taj hotel and gives a feel that recession is prevailing around the place. Everything is very slow and the food also tastes just ok nothing great to comment.

We visited the Taj Chandigarh's Dera Restaurant for a romantic dinner after a long while but refreshingly the experience was very good. The staff was extremely polite and courteous. The ambience was relaxing, the food scrumptious to say the least. It was truly an exhilarating experience. Would love to come back.
