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

It was with eager anticipation that our group of four gathered at the Whispering Bamboo for a special family celebration. A reservation was made well in advance and we were duly ushered to a well placed table. It was early and there were not too many diners around and we congratulated ourselves on our selection. The starters of crispy chengdu... More

Everything was great about this place... food, ambiance etc, only thing we felt was that the service was too slow, otherwise worth the money.

A wonderful place for Chinese lovers. The starters were extremely good. The service was superb . I had gone there for my brother's birthday , and when the staff came to know it was his birthday , they gave us a complementary cheesecake!! The potions they serve are quite small. For a family of 6 , you will need to... More

We keep returning to enjoy good Chinese food in Pune. By now all restaurant stewards knows us and they are smart too. They remember our likes and dislikes that add immense value to personalised service. Value for money and I wouldn't really mind paying even more for the quality and service at the restaurant. Do relish crispy shredded lamb. Nobody... More

I got chicken with peper sauce, amazing spicy dish, extremely delicious, with half portion of noodles and half portion of rice. Food can be served to your plate if you wish,... More

Strongly recommend The Tomato bouillon with Tofu and Celery Soup to start with. Try the prawns butter chilli garlic in starter or main portion size and move on a delicious and healthy main on steamed basa fillets in spring onion and ginger sauce which just melts in your mouth. For Dessert don't miss the 5 Spice Baked Yoghurt. Lots of... More

This was one of the best Asian restaurants I have ever had. Portions are large -- so be prepared prior to ordering appetizers.
