We ate here as a form of celebration of the end of our trip, as we usually don't eat in these posh and upscale places. Overall positive experience, but only for the ambiance (you feel you are in the Belle Epoque), the singer, who even sings the songs that you ask her to, and the kindness of the waiters. The... More

This was by far the most romantic experience we had on our trip in India. It is a unique concept with so much history. Service was over the top.

Our experience at this restaurant was a loooong one. Started at 7:30 and still not quite done by 11:00. The whole Orient Express idea felt more like a gimmick to me. The food was above average, but the service was impeccable! Unfortunately, all that could not make up for the price - over $1000 CAD for the 7 of us.... More

We boarded the train and were shown to our booth. It was a quiet evening, and for most of the evening, it was just my husband and I. However, at no time did we feel awkward. It is perfect for a romantic evening with the pianist playing and an excellent vocalist adding to the ambience. The food was delicious with... More

So, I visited Orient Express, a restaurant I had always wanted to go to but sadly I was unable to earlier as I was under 18 years of age. But this time round, we were all together in India (parents, sister and I) and thought that this would be the perfect occasion to visit this restaurant as a family. Everyone... More

It lives upto the expectation. Food is delicious and the live singer adds a completely different charm to the place. She was really good, I even requested a song. Although I am a chocolate lover and had high expectations from the lava cake, I was disappointed with the taste. All in all, will definitely visit again.
