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".

You have to get a table by the window if you are here for breakfast or lunch. the food is very good but what sets it apart is the hallmark Oberoi service.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights during a private tour of India in late 2012. We travelled from Delhi by train, as we wanted to experience the old British-built "toy train" up to Simla.
