Best Thai food in town. Everything is outstanding, service is great, taj ambiance and hospitality! Try the water chestnut and coconut milk dessert on crushed ice.

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

Staying at the Taj, whispering Bamboo is a restaurant with amazing design comfortable chairs and good light. The food is of a wide selection and can be really flexible. 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.

this is our favourite restaurant in Pune. Although pricey, the food has been consistently delicious. We like especially the vegetarian spring rolls, the shrimps with garlic, and the honey fish. The lamb dishes are also good. The place has a pleasant ambiance, with plenty of space between tables, and piano music. The staff led by Charles are helpful and efficient.... More

Excellent service and food. The environment has a suitably Chinese feel, with bamboo poles around the perimeter of the restaurant.

Whispering Bamboo may still be the only authentic Chinese restaurant in town, but that does not mean it is consistently good. First of all, prices keep going through the roof every few months with no correlation with inflation. Second, they have still not got rid of MSG in the kitchen, and if you forget to tell them, you will get... More
