Oberoi Cecil - an absolutely stunning, welcoming, cozy place with the most warm and friendly staff always going out of their way to make you feel special. My family and I are foodies and Chef Raj Kumar Bhatia is the DEFINITION OF CULINARY SKILLS! I wonder why he hasn’t participated in MasterChef; he would win hands down! Apart from trying out some of our favourite items on the menu, we were craving some of our very special Sindhi dishes. We happened to mention it to him and the very next day we were presented with a feast! He nailed every item to the T! Attached are just a couple of photos I happened to click for my Instagram stories but trust me those aren’t even the tip of the iceberg. It’s not even 1/10th of what we ate. That’s how much we ate! My favourite - tandoori prawns and orange panna cotta. For the chai lovers there’s masala chai kulfi! Everything is to die for - be it Continental, Chinese, Indian or Italian! His presentation skills - 100! Taste - 100! Person - 100! Such a humble and polite person he is, someone whose taught him self cooking and made it from scratch! Soar high Chef Raj Kumar Bhatia! Vineet, extremely warm and friendly and always cracking jokes and making us laugh. Before ordering food we always asked him his recommendations and it was always spot on! Dolkar decorated the room for my dads 60th birthday. She cleaned it squeaky clean everyday! Such a pleasant individual and always smiling. Prashant too, excellent housekeeping! Maithili, Deepika.....the list goes on...such warm and welcoming people going out of their way for us. And Shivam - super bar tender and made me the most amazing Mocha Frappe! Once again, thank you Deepika and thank you Cecil for this wonderful day experience. Kind Regards Dr Nataasha Chandiramani…
The Oberoi Cecil, Shimla was one of a kind, gorgeous hotel which had the most amazing staff with the best hospitality. We’ve experienced such great hospitality at very few hotels and Oberoi Cecil tops the list. Our meals were at the hotel itself, and every meal of ours was prepared by their great Chef Rajkumar Bhatia, he’s a chef par excellence. He made us any dish we desired and it was made to perfection. He didn’t only satisfy our stomachs but also, our hearts with his warm nature. As long as he’s the chef at Oberoi Cecil, we would definitely visit it again.
Oberoi Cecil is amazing heritage hotel , staff is very friendly and cooperative ,services are excellent, the most I like about chef Rajkumar Bhatia made different types of dishes which our family enjoyed a lot , so I personally recommend to go in this heritage hotel
If you want to reward yourself and want to get pampered don't think further, just pack your bags and go to Cecil. On main entrance you'll meet Rahul who will be your concierge who will mesmerize you with his soft spoken pleasent personality. Word of caution: Don't interact too much with Rajkumar, Chef because after eating his signature chicken & desert you would never want to leave that place. Rajkumar ji also gave me Shimla potrait which I've duly framed & a recipe too. My eight year old daughter said that from now on she will stay at Cecil Oberoi only & why not as she spent her total visit in activity center which was well monitored with experience caretaker. In all I was unable to point out any flaw. It's flawless.
