Varq serves up some of the best contemporary Indian Cuisine I've ever had the pleasure of eating. By contemporary I mean there's a bit of crossover of ingredients and tastes from other countries/cultures, but not so much that it would qualfiy as 'fusion.' Decor is nice, ambience is nice, and service is warm and friendly. Considering the location (i.e. Taj... More

If you are spinach fan with tolerance to spices then palak lasuni is must try. Rest of the food preparations are great too. The best part is they will custom make stuff if you are not comfortable with their menu.

Most delicious food in a beautiful ambience. The dessert more particularly the kulfi and jalebi are icing on the cake. Starters are superb and mouth watering.

We reserved our table in advance (much recommended) ...as we always wanted to visit this one listed as one of the Top 50 restaurants in Asia. Though we reached about 45 minutes late because of the "famous" Delhi traffic we were graciously accommodated. The staff were attentive, courteous and informative throughout. The ambience is really relaxing.(albeit a bit cold for... More

Taj is a name associated with impeccable service and performance and that was my experience till I went to Varq. To be honest there was nothing wrong with the food except for the fact that they managed to make goof ups after goof ups. Starters were great especially the ganderi kebab. Service till then was also impeccable before the first... More

Very upscale Indian food located within the Taj Mahal Hotel. Clearly a lot of effort goes into presentation with all dishes looking as good as they tasted. Portions are, perhaps, a little on the small side and drinks are, perhaps inevitably, rather expensive. The quality of the food and the service is good but portions are small (look out for... More

We had dinner at Varq. The quality and taste was quite good. Though siff on price the standard of the hotel is reflected well.

Was introduced to proper indian food in this fancy and elegant restaurant. Really enjoyed the experience. Waiters were very attentive and food and venue were both lovely. Not mad about desserts but general impression was really good. I like the fact that they highlight the vegetarian dishes ( although that seems to be very common in India) . Would definitely... More

Loved the food presentation and the combination of flavors. Restaurant is not formal but it is elegant. One dish was too spicy for me but the rest were wonderful. Staff is good about making it clear as to how spicy the dishes would be.

Couldn't get a short-notice dinner reservation at Indian Accent (lunch tomorrow) so our concierge suggested Varq as a stand-in. Housed in a pleasant, modern room overlooking the gardens at The Taj Mansingh, Varq presents inventive and beautifully crafted dishes in the Indian Nouvelle style. A charming and efficient staff are enthusiastic and knowledgable; our waiter looked like a Maître d'... More
