I had heard a lot about the legendary service of the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai and by extension, applied the same to its restaurants as well. I was disappointed. I had gone there with my mom and wife on a Sunday evening. The place looked ok- nothing great. We were told a waiting time of 30 mins, which I... More

If you are looking for a good choice and quality Chinese cuisine , then the most renowned and the finest that you can get is at this restaurant in town. Don't expect much of a good service from the staffs around inside this restaurant as the service is pretty poor and un-friendly staffs and extremely slow back up service. A... More

I enjoyed some of the best Chinese food I'd had in India here. The set lunch was fresh and delicious - the portion size a bit too big even for me for lunch. The dim sum were of particular note.

Went here ages ago. It is a posh restaurant at The Taj with slow service but brilliant food. Our 4 courses took almost 3 hours to serve but we came away totally sated.

Golden Dragon at the Taj Palace offers, in our opinion, the best Chinese food in Mumbai. The food has always been excellent and the service superb, Its a place for special occasions. A must visit location.

This is surely one for the top chart. The staff can give personalised attention and the chef can drum up something special for you if only you asked.

Have been visiting for years and have found the quality of the food slipping of late. The service is still excellent, but at the prices charged one expects a better meal
