Brilliant service. The plus point more than food is the staff posted with remarkable hospitality and great attitude. Would definitely return for them. Thanks to Noble, Salyadri, Ali, Mukhtar, Meena and all the other staff posted.

We had dinner at Jasmine bay and it was fabulous. The buffet spread was not very impressive so went for A-la-carte. We mostly had sea food and it was all cooked to perfection based on our preference. Desserts were awesome too! We had almost every dessert on the menu. Ambiance was super cool by the pool side.

This is one of the best restaurants we visited during our honeymoon. The food is truly TAJ quality. We enjoyed the food and were plesantly suprised with the small things done by the staff to make us feel special. Complimentary cakes for our wedding and also for our journey back to Mumbai, were very touching and made us very happy.... More
