Wonderful food and stellar service. Had the pork ribs as a starter and some excellent spicy lamb. Highly recommend a visit. Can also recommend an Asian Muse as a starter drink :-) Good times.

When it comes to restaurant reviews i am quite stingy (in terms of writing them) but this place totally deserves the 5 stars. Everything from service to ambiance is absolutely impeccable. We started the evening with a Chilean Chardonnay, served at perfect temperature. Moved on to some lime grilled fish and had sticky rice with veggies on top and lemongrass chicken for main course. Finished the evening with perfect Lemongrass Tiramisu. Each of these dishes were excellently prepared and is a must try but one thing that really stands out is the dessert, so if you go to this place - do try the tiramisu. The service is excellent, it's like the staff is invisible (they don't stand on your head) and telepathic (just appear out of nowhere whenever you need them). A must try for anyone with even a little bit of liking for Oriental Cuisine.

Enjoyed late night wine and dine out there had great fun in Blue Bar at Taj Palace. We went in a group had great fun, ordered Absinth, Black Russian and Long island Iced Tea all were made to perfect. Ambience is just great with Couch Settings in outside, prior reserve it on weekends, Music is a plus too, play good loud music until 1.30, then switch too soft music until bar closes at 04:00.

Enjoyed a lovely evening here. Began the evening with cocktails sitting at an outdoor table in the Blue bar of the hotel which was busy and buzzy and served yummy cocktails from an extensive list. Dinner inside was delicious and the surroundings very smart. the only shame was that the restaurant was not even half full so there was limited atmosphere however it did mean that service was super-attentive. We had a massaman curry and a thai curry and both were excellent. The wine was also decent value for a hotel restaurant and served well chilled. I would definitely go again and would recommend for a night out.

We went to Blue Ginger, a bit apprehensive, as we had never experienced Vietnamese cuisine, especially as we r vegetarians. We were pleasantly surprised with the veg selection. The restaurant staff were quite helpful in helping us choose the right dishes. The food good, the service could have been better, as the restaurant was not busy with 2nd October being a dry day.

Dear Jaideep,

Greetings from Taj Palace, New Delhi!

At the outset, we would like to thank you for your feedback in the Trip Advisor. It is only your valuable comments and suggestions that help us in our continuous endeavor to make improvements.

I am not sure if you remember me but we have met several times when I was the General Manager at Taj Bengal, Kolkata. I have noted your comments with regard to Blue Ginger and thank you for your compliments. It is true that our repertoire of vegetarian cuisine at Blue Ginger is perhaps better than non vegetarian selection.

Please do drop in whenever you are in Delhi next.

We thank you for your kind patronage of Taj Palace and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

With best regards,


Taljinder Singh
General Manager
