The Chinese food at the Whispering Bamboo of the Taj Hotel tasted authentic enough although the Chinese tea could do with a more generous amount tea leaves to provide a more flavourful tea.

Place is a little crowded but location is good for both biusiness meetings and family dinners. Food used to be great earlier but this time I felt it was just average.

Went to Whispering Bamboos today for lunch. The ambience and service is always very good here, however the food was quite mediocre and honestly not value for money. The lotus stem we ordered for the starters was quite hard and dry. I had a chear prawn and mushroom corriander soup. The prawns had zero taste and the overall quantity was... More

The crab sweet corn soup,to start with, brings flavours of the wonderful journey which one will experience. The starters have their authentic ingredients to take the diner to the pan-Asian cuisine followed by the main course whether it it fish or meats. The atmosphere too, is not rushed

You cannot miss their coriander lemon soup and the chef's special chilli coriander sauce, it's not hot as the name suggests but beautifully compliments the burnt garlic fried rice. Desserts are something they need to work a bit, the date pancakes were a bit on the oily side, nevertheless very delicious The staff is one of the most friendly and... More

I personally like the lemon chicken and garlic soup. Though I have not tested many other dishes, judging from other customers, I can only assume they are wonderful, too. It is expensive, but worth it.

We as a family of eight were here for the August Moon oriental festival today. It was a send off party. The service, food, hospitality, warmth, attention to detail and ambience was simply TOP DRAWER! Surprise was a wonderful chocolate mousse cake for the family member on Bon Voyage!

The food is decent, the service is good, but the music is loud and terrible. Considering only four of us were in the restaurant at 1200 hrs, the music could have been kept off. The Lemon Chicken was excellent !
