I went there because it is located in the Taj Palace hotel where I stayed during my business trip to Delhi (a hotel I can just warmly recommend). I knew this restaurant was very well rated and went there with my wife, hoping we would not be disappointed. We have not been: the atmosphere is quite special and romantic (you... More

Orient Express is an unique experience and the theme of having meal and drinks on a train boggy. The sea food items are simply superb.

The whole ambiance of the restaurant within the hotel was authentic, with the dedicated "waiting room" to the station area decorated with rail posters and memorabilia and the atmosphere enhanced by entertainment from an excellent pianist and singer. However, the rail... More
