This was a fun break from India food during our two week trip. Food was good but atmosphere and service were great! We were disappointed after reading their website and reviews that they did not have a tasting menu.

First, the Taj Hotel is beautiful, but I agree, upon arrival you need to ask the coin ergo the restaurant's location. I didn't know what I was expecting but I do not think it was a room with railway dining car in the back. Upon entering the dining car, you see and feel nothing but opulence! The dining staff were...

The atmosphere is nice, and I admit the food is outstanding, but the price is just too much. This would be crazy expensive in Europe, compared to India standard is outrageous.

Simply fantastic. Of all the 3 Michelin star restaurants I've been to this is right up there with the best. The decor is sublime, a replica of an Orient Express carriage and food served in the style that they would have! A real treat for food lovers and historians!
