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!

Year after year this restaurant has been rated as the best European food restaurant for a good reason. High quality food preparations with outstanding service. Very formal dining in replica of the Orient express Train cabin. Good selection of Wines,Cognac and scotch as well. Must try if you like fine dining.
