Definitely the best restaurant within the Taj Hotel (Pune) complex - a great choice of different dishes (veg and non-veg) available with the crispy duck being a highlight. I was a little disappointed with the choice for my main - the clay pot tofu was a bit of a let down as the tofu could have had a better taste... 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

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. They are delectable to the core, each and everything. The best... More

Nice food with extra helpful service - did not order much but whatever was asked for was provided. Ambience was good with a waterfall.
