Great Restaurant with endless eating options

This is an excellent restaurant. You can order anything (whether it is menu or not). They will try their best to serve as per your choice. The ambience is good and some seats of view of valley.

Really and truly the food which was fantastic was out shown by the service. The staff really couldn't do too much to help and that was from senior management all the way down. We were on a buffet package but the staff kept bring specials for us to taste. The best food we had on our trip to India

We were on a tour with Breakfast/Dinner included so as such we were restricted to the buffet in both cases. Having said that the variety for both was excellent although Dinner dinner was biased towards Indian cuisine. The waiting staff were most attentive, cheerful and helpful.

The Restaurant at Oberoi Cecil is a must have experience for all food lovers. The restaurant is true to the heritage which Cecil represents. Beautiful vintage furniture reminding one of the British Era. Food is too good with a lot of variety. Courtesy is unmatched. Only issue is high price. Buffet is priced at RS. 1750/- per person.

The staff won't rest until your highest expectations are exceeded. I don't really have more to say. If you enjoy great Indian and continental cuisine, and don't mind being treated like visiting royalty, this is for you.

We had visited the resturant located inside the Cecil Oberoi, Shimla for a dinner. The food and wine was exemplary but what stole the show was the effortless yet genuine customer service provided by the staff. The decor, the wooden furniture and the classic style curtains reminded of the bygone British era. Overall, strongly recommend.
