Shanti Lodge is a roof top restaurant just outside the south gate of Taj. It gives an amazing view of the taj so its a perfect place to sit and enjoy the views while sippin on tea coffee or even beer. The food on the other hand is not that great plus it took them an hour to prepare the... More

We were hoping to find a nice place to sit to view the Taj while we ate; looking at the menu, the food seemed a tad pricy but the view was unbeatable so we decided to have a go. We've been in India for about three months now, and the food here was actually the biggest disappointment for the whole... More

The excellence of this restaurant lies in the view of the Taj MAhal from all of its tables. I only had tea, but the tea was the best I had in Agra. In fact I came back at tea time for the tea. The other food items were a bit pricey for my wallet. However, a breakfast of milk and... More

We had our lunch here one Friday, because the Taj Mahal is closed on that day. It was cloudy but we were patient and we were rewarded with the stunning view we had hoped for. Unlike some other posters, we enjoyed our meal and were pleased with the service provided by the waiters. We also were impressed that there was... More

Ok, yes the view is good- but actually a couple doors down at the Om Shanti rooftop restaurant the view it even better. The first thing we noticed was the thousands of flies. If you want to eat your meal looking like the kids on the African charity commercials then have at it! The staff who work there barely had... More

On the roof up several flights of stairs the Shanti offers great views of the Taj- handy if you've arrived on a Friday when it's closed, or want a final gaze before departure. The food is pretty dismal, you're probably safest at breakfast time with an omlette and toast.

The view is magical from the rooftop over the buildings you can see the taj perfectly - a great place to head for a beer to watch the sun set and taj glow pink. The food was pretty average and the toilet up there as one of the worst in India - and that is saying something

The title says it all - good for a beer while you watch the sunset over the Taj Mahal. The toilet was pretty dreadful, and reading the rest of these reviews I'm glad I didn't eat there.

I stayed in Agra for 4 full days and stopped by the Shanti for lunch for maybe 3 of those days. I thought the food at the Shanti was pretty good. I liked everything that I ordered. Staff can be slow to get to you if you stop by dinner where it tends to get more crowded.
