Good food

We had dinner with family. Food was slightly different than normal Indian food, which was a nice change. Really nice. Desert to long to come, and an additional glass of champagne had been added to the bill, but otherwise we enjoyed.

Loved the food and ambiance, decor is pretty contemporary with the view of lush greens and bold colors inside. The food is equally bold & contemporary. Prawns in filo pastry are a must must!

Legend has it the executive Chef of this restaurant didn't get a job with the Oberoi group because of his last name (his full name is Hemant Oberoi). I also read somewhere there is a higher purpose in life and you need to find it. For Chef Oberoi, the purpose is Varq in every sense of the word. This restaurant... More

Really enjoyed this refined version of Indian cuisine. Ambiance is a bit stiff, but staff is very helpful and welcoming.

This was an excellent fine dining restaurant, although the prices were very high for India. The service, quality and presentation was excellent.
