This is the kind of place you go for a special occasion. It's not cheap by any means but the food is delicious and the service is faultless. You leave feeling that you've had a fantastic evening. We have been at least 10 times and have never had a bad experience there.

The Orient Express is, as the name suggests, an experience to rival the train itself. The staff are amazingly attentive without being annoying, like some restaurants. The food was exquisite, I couldn't speak too highly of it. We were listening to the music and then there was a man at the window asking for requests. He played ours and others... More

We recently celebrated my wife's birthday at Orient Express (yes named after the famous train). It was a journey of culinary delight from Chef DN Sharma, who has been at the helm for over 15 years. The decor is classy, wine list impressive and food and service was exceptional. I highly recommend Camembert Souffle (a classic), Cognac flambeed Lobster, Asparagus... More
