Great Ambience and best food in town. Chef and team look forward to guests' requirement and have great attention to detail. It is a semi-formal restaurant and you are better off dressed appropriately for the meal to best soak in the ambience.

Stayed in Oberoi Cecil for 2 nights and our package included breakfast and dinner. The decor, the ambience, wooden furniture etc. of the restaurant were cool and reminded the colonial era. The most impressive feature of the restaurant is their hospitality and service level. I must thank Ms. Shoumi, Mr. Krishna and their FB team for facilitating memorable dining experience.... More

The service is most attentive, and the waiters are eager to provide advice on the best dish choices. To start, one of us had a martini, the others a wonderful non-alcoholic drink made with mint and home-made ginger ale. The amuse bouche was... More

The buffet spread for breakfast, lunch and dinner are reasonably good. Food taste is also good through bland, but the staff are happy to offer you additional dishes not part of the buffet menu. Service is very good but price is very high.
