Whatever you order, you get it fast. Good service. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and music. Charles was the Supervisor who moved with me so good. Chef Nanda offered suggestions for choosing speciality menu in the restaurant.

Loved the food and service. Decor is a bit heavy, but its easy to get over it; just stay focused on the food.

This was our 2nd new years eve dinner in Le Meridian. The ambiance and the live music (flute + tabla) was great. The food was above par. We were a large group (family and friends) and the service was great. The food was not too spicy and perfect for me ( I somehow have lost the ability to have chilli... More

I was shocked to see incompetent car checks when I entered this afternoon (1/4/2013). Guard (who dressed like a traffic cop) with pan parag (sort of tobacco) in his mouth was not a pleasant scene. No one turned up for Valet parking. When I wanted to complain, manager or escalation point was not available. Buffet lunch was okay (above average)... More

Had a nice lunch here. The service was immaculate, every needs and wants was met with great enthusiasm. Great for entertaining guest from overseas and to introduce the Indian cuisine to them.

I had gone here several times with business visitors from overseas. The food is excellent though expensive. The staff is courteous showing excellent hospitality. Some form of entertainment, either music, dance or puppet show is always there to fascinate the diners.
