It's a great fine dining place. Absolutely delightful service. A great experience whether you visit alone, as a couple or for business. The food is awesome. One of the best restaurants in New Delhi.

In the last one year, I have probably dined at multiple fine dining restaurants (5stars and others) and in my experience there are very few 5 star fine dining experiences in India that come even any where near being called fine dining - Orient Express thankfully has been and remains an exception. Fine dining constitutes - Ambience, An attentive service,... More

The restaurant is set in the"dining coach" of the Orient Express and hence suitable for small group of people. The service is top of the world, with wait staff appearing at your side, as you just turn your head for something. The sheer attention bestowed on the diners and their every need makes this an experience to cherish. Food is... More

We had a wonderful experience here in the Orient Express restaurant. The food was truly exceptional & the level of service simply excellent - especially from the manager who really did a superb job of looking after us. All food consumed was of a very high quality and beautifully presented. The lobster bisque was rich & tasty & the cheese... More

We have been to this restaurant on five previous occasions and have never been disappointed - indeed it has been at the opposite end of the satisfaction spectrum - the meals we have experienced have been quite exquisite and truly memorable. We therefore had no hesitation to pay another visit during our present trip to India, Bhutan and Nepal. The... More

I have to say this is a true 5 Star Restaurant. Not only was the food 5 star but the service, wine and location was also. Make sure you have your credit card as it is not cheap but as a special treat, 100% recommend. Food portions very good for this style of restaurant, fresh, beautiful flavours and presentation.

Awesome place to dine for Couples. Nice selection of food with Continental Cuisine and Interesting Presentation.Different concept and feels like we are dining in an expensive Train.One thing to note though,Just a few vegaterian recipes are served here so Orient express is not the best place to dine for vegaterians like me.5 stars for the Ambience and Service!!

My wife saw this on tripadvisor and we decided to make a reservation, first for the two of us, later we also invited a friend of ours. It was a very nice evening, I haven't had so much fun for a long time. It is one of the restaurants in the Taj hotel and the tables are actually located in... More
