A Chinese oasis in the midst of Mumbai

Having lived and worked in Hong Kong and China I am always sceptical about Chinese restaurants in flagship hotels. This restaurant is informal and pleasant. Unassuming?

The Oriental restaurant at the Taj Mahal Palace (Golden Dragon). Hmmm, not impressed. Ignore the dress code which they make a big thing of, they let anyone in here, ripped old jeans, flip flops, T-shirts – more like street café. My wife ordered the beef dish and the waiter simply refused, said no. I had to question him, eventually he... More

There is a reason why this restaurant has been the most awarded and one of the finest Chinese restaurants in the country. Have been here only once and you are most likely to bump into a celebrity when you are here given the reputation of the restaurant. The place is very well appointed, staff is very well groomed and service... More

The Golden Dragon is regularly voted amongst the best Chinese restaurants in Mumbai. We found the food to be excellent - it was spicier than Chinese restaurants often are in London. While the service was good, it wasn't particularly notable. Additionally the meal was quite expensive, which I think you should expect for a restaurant based in The Taj. I... More
