Top food, relaxing ambience with soothing music, excellent service, price tag to match. Tried the garlic naan, shrimp with coconut sauce, chicken kebab, coconut ice cream, all great.

We had dinner at the Esphahan while staying at the hotel and loved the food. Great service too. The kids in particular had a blast and made friends with the santoor player at the restaurant,

The experience is a highlight in our month in India.The waiters suggested small dishes and complemented mine with my wife's, bringing gratis drink and food--everything we had was among the best we had eaten anywhere .

The staff was so kind- they seated us despite my husband and sons not adhering to dress code. We had been traveling for 30hours and staff didnt shame or humiliate us.

Spectacular food and service. The staff are excellent. They bring out small plates from time to time you don't even order so you don't miss out on anything. Nice entertainment too. Meals are huge portions, share.

How can we say how much we loved it? They absolutely know what hospitality means, top notch service! Attention to details and needs of guests. Try the set menu if you want to experience the real Indian food. This is really worth it! The background live music doesn't over-powered the ambiance. This is a beautiful restaurant if you want to...
