Was the food good? Yes. Was the ambiance great? Yes. Was the service good? Yes. But was the overall experience splendid. hmmm.. Not sure. Everyrhing was good, but the much hyped Leela experience, I didn't find anything extra-ordinary. Buffet was good with soft meats and fresh roti and nice fluffy biriyani rice. Desserts was too plain and not many varieties... More

I and my family visited this place on the 26th of December, 2016 at dinner time. From the beginning itself the experience was horrible. There was nobody to guide us from the entrance to the restaurant. The staff cared the least about local visitors it seemed. Even after finding the restaurant on our own and settling down at a table,... More

Location of the restaurant is great. Food is good but the spread and quality is slightly below those of other Leela properties. Breakfast is the best meal. Spread at dinner can improve

Had great expectations from this place. Does have spectacular views but it ends there. Food is by far the worse I have had at any similar hotel. The variety in the buffet is limited and not at par with the pricing. The food is bland and most of it cold. The service is in consistent too. There were two ladies... More
