The unpleasent surprise was an unfriendly frisking and full security check at the gate of the hote: I felt I was entering an airport and not going to a restaurant. Food at the restaurant was good: but they took a pretty long time in serving it. The Ambiance is good if a little open, once past the unfriendly security at the gate! Food offerings in the menu are acceptable.

It is difficult to catch a bite between lunch and dinner in most Calcutta resturants and the only option you are left with are the expensive coffee shops at 5 star hotels. Well, this time round, the coffee shop experience really worked well as we found out in Taj. The recently renovated By The Way has been named Promenade and with soft live music and a motley crew of art display, it is a stage set of a very relaxed evening with a very typical English High Tea served in just the right manner!

Choose from a selection of three different types of tea and get served with tea/coffee/juice (or all three) in typical Taj style. Service is amazing and the fact that the bite sized scones, pastries and selection of sandwiches taste authentically English is something that the chef should be commended about. Definitely fresh, the wide selection of coffees and teas can leave the best coffee shops in London way behind. A must visit for anyone looking for a relaxed evening where conversations are encouraged. Very suitable for families with young children as well. Don't forget to try the bite sized banana and caramel cup cakes!
