Probably the best restaurant in Agra for a special meal after a day in the maelstrom of the Taj and busy Agra. Attentive service, delightful setting and delicious food and breads. Desserts are worth to save some space for!

Whilst the food was good, the service was slow and the table we had meant we spent the whole time hearing the staff enter orders and bash around, choose your table carefully! It's a shame they don't make more of the views. Could you be brilliant but lacks atmosphere and soul.

We had an excellent meal at Esphahan, and enjoyed the live music as well. The wait staff was excellent, and the meats cooked in the open clay oven were especially tasty. The menu choices are a little limited, but there was enough to choose from for both a meat eater and a vegetarian.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary here. Everything was delicious. The restaurant is a good size, not too large and tables are not too close together. Staff are exceptional.

Yes, we are in India and yes, this Restaurant is in the hotel, but hey, this was really really special. We have Indian at least twice a week at many different restaurants in Melbourne, but nothing comes to this experience. From starter to mains to desert to service...absolutely 5 stars. Also, a very special thank you to the Bakery Chef... More

Love-love-love. Delicious Indian cuisine served in a beautiful dining area by excellent staff. Price certainly matched the excellence so expect luxury prices, but it's well worth it. We had an array of different dishes as well as dessert and nothing disappointed. Wine list was great, as well. Highly recommend.

When you're staying in a wonderful hotel in a magical location your expectations of the restaurant are naturally high.. and then the Oberoi Amervillas surprises you by delivering perfection ! WOW .. we have stayed in some of the world's best hotels but never had this quality of dining experience, thank you !
