“Superb ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Situated on a hilltop, this garden restaurant provides panoramic views of Madurai and is a perfect place to have a relaxed lunch. There was a gentle breeze blowing when we went there and there were a few peacocks prancing around. One has the option of either taking a table in the garden or seating inside. The place is also children friendly and our two and a half year old daughter had a very good time. We went for a lunch buffet and found the spread very sumptuous and fulfilling. They had a very good mix of Indian, continental, veg and non veg. The soups were very good and so were the desserts. It definitely comes at a price but the money is worth spent.

“Amazing view”

The place is a visit just to see the location, the greenery and the view. There was a peacock just walking around the restaurant, a rarity

“Perspective changer of Madurai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

While I didn't actually stay at the Taj, I did visit it a couple of times in the past year, mostly to meet up with friends.

The good points: The ambience is gorgeous. I have never seen Madurai look more beautiful than from that hilltop. The food served is delicious and at the right temperature (the soup is hot and the icecream is cold ;) )

The bad: Unless you're getting there by car, I would suggest you don't wear heels. The Hotel is situated on top of a hill and the hike is quite steep at points. The food comes in very meagre amounts unless you've ordered a la carte and may seem expensive but it was worth it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Located in a small hillock from where you can see entire madurai. It offers buffet dinner and lunch everyday. Little bit costly but worth the money spent.
