Quality, Quality, Quality

High quality food, staff and ambiance. Samim, Upendra, Chinki and all the waiting staff are very welcoming and will always go the extra mile and do all they can to make the customer happy. Food is the best in the area, no doubt. Goura in the bar is also a star. Can't recommend highly enough.

Impeccable service and fantastic food. I have been many times to Jasmine Bay and Ali and his team are always efficient, warm, respectful, and knowledgeable. The balanced staff to customer ratio ensures attentive and bespoke service. Upendra, Noble, Ajit and the rest of the waiting team are highly trained with great attention to detail. The chefs, headed by Nikson are... More

Oh my god.... this is one resturant where entire staff is very charged up, smiling and ready to serve. Breakfast and dinner buffets are well spread with 2 live counters and a variety of preset menu. The sitting in non air conditioned as it is pool side setup and the furniture is comfortable. the meals here are definitely enjoyable.

This is the 24hr restaurant café at the Taj Vivanta. A lovely place besides the infinity pool. The staff, the food and the ambience all stand up to the reputation of this hotel. The menu includes buffet lunch and dinner but one also has the choice of ala carte as well.

We went there for a dinner couple of days back. The first thing you would notice about this restaurant is the view . This is a pool side restaurant which opens further to the magnificent view of the Arabian Sea. This offers a multi-cuisine dietary choice and unlike others even the home cuisine is at its best in taste. Best... More

Good variety in buffet. Awesome views. Food quality and quantity was good. Lives upto the expectation of the famous Taj hospitality. Staff was extremely courteous and attentive. Food was delicious.

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.
