It was our turn to pay for treat and so we had lunch at the hotel......'Ouch.!!'.
Gosh it cost.
What a lovely experience however.
Excellent food and incredible service, the rooms are decorated luxuriously and nothing is too much trouble, we had a long afternoon there.....................it felt like luxury and it sure was.
If you have had tea at the Ritz then you must have lunch here.

Staying at the Taj is more about heritage and charm of the historic property. It is said everyone knows about and most indians aspire to stay at the taj once in their lifetime....

I have seen the hotel over the last few years and it has a 100 year old legacy to show. its a top noth experience of staying, dining here.

the new renovated rooms, more and more exciting food options in the restaurants are always innovating

Wasabi the restaurant now is amongst the best in India and Asia and has been awarded the same.

This is a must go place for sheer nostalgia sakes

Superb hotel, courteous staff, the Palace / Heritage wing is the only place to be if one is staying at the hotel.
The restaurants, specifically Wasabi by Morimoto and Masala Kraft & Starboard (restaurants frequented by me) serve exceptional food,

Well I don't think my review will make much of a difference but this hotel is simply fantastic . I have stayed in many luxurious hotels but this is just pure pleasure to stay at . It's expensive for sure but I think it's worth every penny . I was there for work and believe me every time I was about to leave the hotel I was sad mainly because I dint want to encounter mumbai's traffic and at the same time. Didn't want to leave the comfort of this place. This hotel is amazing I think the staff is very professional and experienced. It has it's heritage restored with the beautiful building and then food is so amazing as well . No complains at all from this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms with the sea view obviously .

Unlike others we chose to stay in the tower block because of the views.

Barely mentioning that it was our 10th anniversary we were utterly and completely shocked to discover on opening the door that we had been upgraded to a suite !!

Not only that but there were cakes decorations and flowers by the tonne.

It really was quite overwhelming - what customer service !

Frankly the Taj exceeded expectations and we especially loved the outside pool area and the Harbour bar.

Eat at one of the restaurants also - Wasabi is a great place for that special meal.

Well done staff !!
