Had dinner with a couple of colleagues. Ordered the sadhya meal for all of us. In short, my first meal in a Taj hotel where I came out really unimpressed. My comparison was to Dakshin in Park Sheraton and it didn't come close. I would rate all dishes served as average.

Ambience, cutlery and service were great. Authentic taste in every dish. Seating could have been much better considering the space. Of course the price was on the higher side with respect to international standards. Pls dont miss the traditional coffee at the end!I would certainly go there again.

Loved the food and the authenticity. Chef does a really great job of ensuring the food is prepared with ingredients that make it absolutely local tasting!
