Very helpful lady sorted MY error in the table booking and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal which brought finesse to a lovely Indian meal. However dining at this level is more than just the meal and the ambiance of the restaurant left something to be...More

The concierge of the one&only hotel recommended this Indian Restaurant. A real good Choice. First impression was a little „plush atmosphere“. But very tasty Indian cuisine! Nice ameuse bouche etc. Good Service. We can absolutely recommend this brasserie!

This is a sister restaurant of the London one, we checked. In my view both the food and particularly the service were even better. Will go back in a heartbeat.

Great ambience, good presentation, friendly staff and good food . The manager spent time with us discussing wineries that we should visit and shared helpful information regarding the area. We would visit again.

...but worthy of separate mention: this is fine dining in the style of the Indian subcontinent. Tasty (albeit a bit spicy for some), but various regional offers provide variety. Of course, it's a Taj hotel -- so the service is exceptional !
