An English couple we met had highly recommended this place for the rooftop view so despite mixed reviews we decided to give it a shot. We had the option of a deluxe room that was more spacious for 1200 or the standard one for 700. Paying 1200 didn't seem worth it and the 700 looked decent enough so we chose... More

The food was excellent, second only to the unique view. This was one of the highlights of my trip, but I never would have found it without my tour guide Shanu from Kaimur Holidays.

The view might be amazing from here and the place itseld is very nice. However, the food is quite disappointing. We had one startes (chicken pakora) that was horrible and 2 mains (murg tika masala and chicken noodles) that took forever to arrive and were both of bad quality. If you are looking for a place with a great view... More

The view is good from here but the place seemed quite dirty and uncared for. We ordered simple food and drinks and we're very underwhelmed.

Very nice view on the taj mahal. Enjoyed the sunset with a beer there. Had veg pakora ( good but bit too oily ) and french fries ( homemade cut, very good )

I went to this restaurant just because I read that they have a very good terrace . Actually I think you can't find a better place to have a full view of the Taj Mahal!! Food was ok and not expensive - is not a luxury place so you need to expect just s basic but cute terrace! I really... More

The view from the terrace of this place is simply amazing! You shouldn't miss it! What you can miss are the paratha and the lassi though... Not the best in India! The veg pakora was good. You can even go just for a couple of drinks, they also serve beer, if you're in need of alcohol...

We searched the internet and asked around for the best (budget) place to have a drink with a view of the Taj Mahal. This place kept on coming up so we decided on it. It can be hard to find, but most tuk-tuk drivers knew how to get there. When you walk out onto the terrace of the restaurant you... More

It is a bit of a struggle to find this place but worth it. The restaurant is at the top of a building with fantastic views over the Taj. This makes it worth it in of itself especially for a drink in the evening as the sun goes down. Food was pretty good and cheap - no complaints from the... More

The front door of this place is down an awfully dirty side street. The roof top terrace restaurant is up several flights of stairs taking you through what can only be described as a tired, dirty and unappealing hotel. The restaurant does have a decent view of the Taj Mahal but you have to walk past a dirty looking kitchen.... More
