“A sensational treat for your taste buds”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Whilst staying at the hotel with my husband for 3 days we had dinner here both nights, and what a treat it was.

A creative menu selection is on offer and the staff were most accommodating for increasing the strength of some curries. The most delicious naan bread I have ever eaten. A wonderful selection of dishes to choose from. All the dishes we ordered resulted in a party for our taste buds.

This place is expensive, but well worth the splash. Th live entertainment was also most entertaining.

Love this hotel and this restaurant, top marks to the staff and the chefs.

“Best meal in India”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I wrote about this separately in my hotel review. But this was, in the two weeks I spent in India, the best meal I had. The chef took us on a kitchen tour and the food was to die for.

“could be better”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Attention was very slow and the food was nothing special. Considering the quality of the hotel and the general ambience the restaurant was a let down.

“Amazing Hotel, Best Service”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary in Agra and stayed at The Oberoi Amarvilas. We received the highest level of service at the hotel. Oberoi's staff are very polished and were consistently looking for opportunities to make personalize our stay. We felt like we were the only guests at the hotel. The Oberoi Amarvilas rooms and balconies have unobstructed view of Taj Mahal and is only 10-15 minutes away by foot. If you are looking for best-of-the-best, The Oberoi Amarvilas is an easy choice.

“do not miss”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Even if you are staying elsewhere splurge there for lunch or dinner. You'll see why it was rated the best hotel in the world. Don't miss the chicken tikka, The chicken melts in your mouth.
