Nice Meal

The Orient Express opens only for the Lunch and Dinner. It has a lovely decor. The restaurant has been built in an European train type decor. The food is very exclusive and only European food is served. The ambience is great. It is worth visiting the restaurant for a great experience.

Beyond words.. Their pre-meal complimentary offering does the trick. The bubbly and pate combined with live music makes it worth a visit.. And do not call it an evening unless you've entertained your taste buds with the exotic soufflé.

It is located at prime property in a posh vicinity of New Delhi. It is an expensive place to eat ,provides ample choice of continental dishes. Ambience is average whereas other restaurants at Taj Palace are better ones to have meals or snacks.

This is the perfect place to have a quiet dinner and rekindle the flames of romance. Absolutely brilliant yet non intrusive service- paired with good wine reccos....some of the best French food and wait staff that knows how to give you your space yet magically appears when you need them. Try and sit inside the train, where the lovely piano... More

Imagine the dining car of a train located indoors (in what is essentially a large pianobar), climbing on board the car, and discovering the decor of a 1920's dining extravaganza! Original menu from the Orient Express, but not all items available, due to local laws in India. Nevertheless, a wonderful experience!
