The restaurant serves Punjabi and hyderabadi cuisine. we ordered some hyderabadi stuff which was ok. Staff was helpful. Desserts though was average(rather overpriced). We had something like a rasmalai which was average.

Why does a person visit a fine dining restaurant? Is it only for the great food that one gets, or is it for the overall experience? Hubby and I decided to visit Dera, since there was a Hyderabadi food festival being organised there, with a chef having flown in from Hyderabad. The food was well prepared, right from the signature... More

Amazing people, and Yogesh, the Chef de Partie, on duty that night was extremely responsive. Something that we ordered, the fried Yoghurt speciality was a mite too sweet for us and he never charged it. The Dal was excellent as was the vegetable dish and the sweet dish. Kudos and thank you for making it a good night for our... More

The restaurant specialises in Indian food. So only if you want to eat indian food then you should visit the place. Their other restaurant i.e. Black Lotus serves authentic Chinese food.

I had asked them to make a sugar free cake for my mom who is diabetic. The chef went out of his way to do... More

Must say they serve amazing food. The quality of the food is superb. You can explore here the authentic Punjabi food. Service is good and staffs are very cordial. The ambiance is good and complementing the 5 Star and Taj status. Must try butter chicken, kaali daal and Olive nan.

The restaurant is located inside the Taj Chandigarh. It has some of the finest chefs and wonderful people around to serve you mouth watering stuff. The Dal Makhni with Lahori Naan is just the best!! We had also some nice paneer preparations and other stuff, but none to beat the Lahori naan - with fair sprinkling of green chillies and... More

Pleasant experience entertaining guests at Taj Dera. Chef Yogesh dished out some modified low calorie veggi stuff at a short notice and personally attended to us.Service was good. Seating layout can be better. In a group we felt little squeezed.
