I went to this restaurant and was told its voted as the most romantic. Now I don't know why that may be the case, but the decor definitely absorbs you wen you enter through a relatively tiny door. The food is very well done and though I haven't sat at the terrace it looked quite nice. Haven't been again since... More

We shared a few Thai dishes for dinner. Everything was well-prepared, fresh-tasting, and tasty. Intriguing setting of decorated walls and artifacts. Friendly, professional, attentive service throughout. The downside: wine is generally very expensive in India, due to import duties, and wines by the bottle are stupid expensive. However, by-the-glass are often at a more palatable price, as they are here... More

A rather unusual restaurant with decor showcasing history painted on walls and ceilings from all over Asia, the food was very good and great serving size. As it feels a little themed I probably wouldn't go back regularly, but I would go again with friends or if u was visiting first time.

my wife and I had a really lovely Thai meal at the Spice Route, Delhi in the Imperial Hotel. Service was good, the only complaint would be cold plates. Thoroughly enjoyed it though.

Great food, attentive service and amazing decor. If in later in the evening you can look at the different decor around the room rather than if it was busy. Menu degustation was excellent. Not a cheap evening when drinks and wine added but this is the Imperial.

We took the chef's menu degustation menu on our last evening in India. The quality of the food is amazing and the decor is breath-taking. I love how they gave us the choice of which table to dine at in one of the nine corners of the restaurant. This is great place for special dinner with your sig-o.
