Excellent food and service

We dined in the vast dining room, under a stained glass ceiling. The food was delicious and the service top class. It's a space best suited to a large gathering such as a wedding, so with only a few tables occupied, it lacked atmosphere.

This is a typical example of old grandeur wasted by poor government operations. The food in the restaurant was very basic, and the place is not at all well maintained. The staff is lazy and do not understand a word of hospitality. Save your money.

My family and I visited Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel in Mysore this afternoon for lunch, and there is not one thing that we found to redeem our awful experience. The outside of the building certainly has the regal palatial look but everything goes rapidly downhill form there on. Stepping into the Palace makes one wonder why the decor is so... More

As said by others, stunning location, average food. Best come for a cup of tea and have dinner elsewhere.

Such an impressive hotel so we went for afternoon tea. We were put in a corridor and left. The tablecloths were filthy and there was a musty smell. A cup of tea was all we got - not even a teapot Very disappointing. It could be such a lovely place but the staff just aren't interested!

The restaurant is located on the ground floor of this grand, old palace. The building is beautiful, the restaurant too reflects some of the past glory. Unfortunately, it does require professional maintenance. I think because it is part of Ashoka group (a govt initiative), the employees do not have any motivation for better service and maintenance - just get the... More

The Lalitha Mahal Palace Hotel is an attractive building with pretty gardens. Inside is like a step back in time, the grandeur is still there but it does need some tlc to bring it up to it's reputation. We called in for some light refreshments and the prices here reflect it's grandeur. It's a shame the owners don't recognise it's... More

Having seen pictures of this place we thought we had to try it, and in some ways it was right. The hotel itself is a grand palace that is hugely impressive, and the dining room is really very impressive. That's pretty much where the positives end. The night we went the only option was a buffet - not my favourite... More

The ballroom is an absolutely stunning setting for dinner at the palace. The food was pretty good - I had a thali and my husband had a korma, and both were very tasty. Felt a little overpriced and it's a real pain to get to, but worth going to look around the palace.
