Oriental at its best

We went to Whispering Bamboo for a small family celebration last saturday. And i must say, what a treat it was. Starting from the very subtle oriental ambience, the courteous staff and great service, it all made our family lunch memorable. The dishes were very original yet authentically oriental... read more

Based on the menu posted on the Taj's website, we mistakenly thought this restaurant would serve authentic Chinese. We were sadly mistaken. Not only was the food Indian-style Chinese, it was quite expensive. For this type of food, we could have ordered from Wang's Kitchen and saved 4,000 rs. Very disappointing. Expected more from a Taj restaurant. Also, menu and... More

Average food – good service. The sort of food served for a property of the Taj just reminds you of the Chinese food available on the carts in Mumbai. Thoroughly disappointed with the standard of food served. The service is exceptional. The F & B Manager needs to pull his socks up.

Coming from Mumbai and having delectable Chinese and pan Asian food at various restaurants, my visit to this outlet was rather disappointing. The service makes up for the average quality of the food. A big thank you to Charles and the other service staff who go all ends out to meet your every need. After hearing so much of this... More

While the Taj Lands End celebrates the revamp of Ming Yang and praises Chef Oberoi why did they let this place run down. Worst Chinese food ever. Even the carts outside are better. Bland soup, soggy lumpy dim sum. I think the Taj should revamp this or shut it down. Avoid this place and save your money and your peace... More

With so many chinese , thai and Asian God joints coming up in the town it's difficult to have a run of the mill restaurant inside the taj , seems no one takes it seriously neither do the people visiting here , they should focus on a few things and make them good .. Nothing is notable here nor the... More
