Nice ambience

I went there just for a little snack—a mango lassi, actually. The lassi was pretty good, but the yogurt was a bit sour for my liking, and, of course, it was expensive. The ambience is lovely, as one would expect.

Excellent ambience. Friendly staff. Great food. Will never forget the warm hospitality of kitchen executive Rajkumar Bhatia, assistant F & B manager Tashi and others.

One of the Fine Restaurants of Shimla , bit away from main city. Excellent Service, amazing décor, beverages were nicely served and tasted well. Fabulous ambience. If you have time and can walk a bit, it can be explored by any one like couple, family, friends.

I am an early diner. 7.00pm is my time – sometimes even 6.30pm. But when they said that ‘The Restaurant‘ at the Oberoi Cecil, Shimla opens only by 7.30pm I was not worried. Though slightly hungry after my 10 hour journey from Hyderabad, I did not mind waiting for the extra 30 minutes. I had heard a lot about this... More

We visited the restaurant for the breakfast buffet during our stay. The view from the restaurant is the highlight of the breakfast. The spread was just fine and not as comparable to our star properties we have seen before.

The restaurant has quite nice food and quite nice service. Actually the food was better than quite nice, it was quite excellent. I wished that the restaurant had some outdoor seating, it would have been nice to sit outside.

The title of my review for the restaurant is exactly the same as the title of my review of the hotel - "Exempliary". There is good reason why the restaurant is number 1 for food on TA, and well deserved. Even if this is not in your normal daily budget, I urge you to push the boat out one day... More
