“Expected Better”

Restaurant details
Reviewed May 27, 2018

We visited this restaurant with our overseas colleagues for a team dinner recently.
From the hospitality perspective, it was great, although there seemed to be some confusion between the staff on our orders (although it was a set menu).
The spread of the set menu was impressive, however the main course was a mixed bag. Those who had ordered lamb loved it, but those who had ordered fish (including myself) expected better.
The deserts were strictly okay. I expected a lot out of the 'deconstructed Tiramisu', but I've had better.

Overall the experience was good, but considering it was the Taj, we expected better for the money.

Beautiful Interiors Spacious and well lit
That’s the first thing that grabs your attention
That and the open kitchen with the smiling chefs working away rolling your pizza and making your pastas
The bread basket on our table would have been better had the breads been warm!
We ordered a bruschetta platter that looked divine but which was a complete disaster! the entire platter was cold and cold means quite cold. I would simply say avoid this! The avocado was tasteless and the quinoa did not work for me!
That said the second starter was much better! It was a succulent chicken kebab in a mango sauce! Called Pollo Rivea .. I forget the full name! Full marks for this one
This was followed by A pizza portofino It’s a large 13 inch pizza generously sprinkled with prawns and mushrooms! This too was crisp and tasty!
We finished with their Deconstructed Tiramisu ... a dessert plated to resemble a chocolate mound and simply light fluffy and delicious!
I wish to commend Zennin their Manager who looked after us pretty well and managed to save our dinner from the disastrous start to actually a pleasant evening ! The bill took its time coming though...so guys do work on that please
