It is quite a tribute to a restaurant to say that it is conceptually interesting. Agatha Christie notwithstanding, this really feels highly authentic, delightfully quirky and experientially rich - recreating the Orient Express is a touch of genius. The music, ambience and service were all first-rate. As well as a great a la cartre, they also have a very reasonable... More

Orient Express is a unigue dining experience in a five star hotel located close to the diplomatic enclave titled Chankyapuri in New Delhi. It serves primarily french cuisine in an old time envoirenment of a dining car of Indian Railway. A word of caution: it is probabily in of the most expensive dining restaurant.

Good Chinese food of fusion variety. Nice ambiance, courteous waiters. Place is spacious but gets very crowded as it is quite popular. Menu has very good variety. Quantity is somewhat less. Overall it is decent mid-range food restaurant.

Orient Express is place to have a beautiful meal, with service which is par excellence. Perfect and beautiful ambience. Expensive, but definitely worth it. Outstanding food, with 3 - course and 4 - course meal options. The beautiful train carriage transports you to a different era and is the heart and soul of the restaurant. An experience worth remembering and... More

Located in the Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi it is one of the finest restaurants in town. Designed like a rail coach of the famous Orient express, it serves continental and French cuisine. I had a rack of New Zealand lamb which was excellent.. The price is high but worth the experience
