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

Great Chinese food in a very nice hotel. Dim sum is very good, as are the main dishes. Service and atmosphere are excellent. yes it is a bit slow but your are here to enjoy your meal not dine and dash. Deserts are delicious as well.

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

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
