Intercontinental food and the meat is pretty good. Service alright and can't fault them. Ambience is good and quiet perhaps it's a Tuesday night. More business like and not your regular family restaurant. Overall, will visit again.

We had a wonderful meal here. The food is mostly western with a few hints of Indian flair. The mushroom pasta (fettuccini?) was fantastic as was the Chilean sea bass. Excellent service.

The food, service and ambiance (dine in an old Orient Express type rail car) are as good as it gets. This place is very expensive, especially for India, but the experience is worth the price, at least occasionally. The chef is world class. One in our party had unusual dietary needs, and the chef accommodated these needs in fabulous and... More

We ate here as a form of celebration of the end of our trip, as we usually don't eat in these posh and upscale places. Overall positive experience, but only for the ambiance (you feel you are in the Belle Epoque), the singer, who even sings the songs that you ask her to, and the kindness of the waiters. The... More

This was by far the most romantic experience we had on our trip in India. It is a unique concept with so much history. Service was over the top.

Our experience at this restaurant was a loooong one. Started at 7:30 and still not quite done by 11:00. The whole Orient Express idea felt more like a gimmick to me. The food was above average, but the service was impeccable! Unfortunately, all that could not make up for the price - over $1000 CAD for the 7 of us.... More
