Delicious

The food was unbelievable and well cooked. Amazing chef comes out and introduces himself to you. The waiters make you feel like Royalty and get you whatever you need as soon as possible. The view from the table is looking upon the mountains and you can trust the food to be healthy.

Had a lazy lunch here on my recent viist to Shimla, The food was just fanstastic and so was the service, We ordered the signature oberoi dishes as recommended by Archit and Tashi (staff at the restaurant) Both of them deserve a special mention for their fantastic service. The seekh kabab, the curries ( chicken and mutton) was good and... More

Great Place to eat. I think it is by far the best place to eat in Shimla if you want something different. The chef Rajkumar came to my table and made a specialty salad that was wonderful. I am always thankful and impressed with the fresh ingredients that are used.

If they don't have it on show, just ask - we wanted ice cream and were given the most delicious butterscotch flavoured ice cream ever!

There was something for everyone, whatever your taste in food. Nothing was too much trouble and even something as little as having your toast brought to you has made being home a bit hard now we have to do it all ourselves! The staff were WONDERFUL.

Great selection of food, beautifully presented and served with a smile. Great evening buffet and good breakfasts. If you make a comment about a dish you really like. The chef will get you the recipe.
