Taj Chandigarh has a poolside barbecue dinner once a month and this time I went there with a couple of friends and what a good decision that was. The ambience at the poolside area is striking to look at , very spectacular. The pool has beautiful blue neon lights and the area adjoining it has just the right amount of... More

It's good to see Taj evolve over the years into the sought out place to dine in by the Chandigarh's elite. With the new chef Ranvijay at the helm of affairs things have become even better and the culinary range at Taj has gone a notch higher. I was at the Barbeque Night by the poolside at Taj yesterday and... More

Restaurants come and go but Dera stays firmly ahead in matters of North Indian cuisine. I have been a regular at Dera since it opened in Taj, Chandigarh many many years ago and it continues to impress and generate more interest with new events and food festivals. Taj recently started a monthly Barbecue night at its poolside during the winter... More

Had food here on my last day. The pathar ka gost and tarka daal is highly recommended. The achars are very interesting and must be tried.

Taj -dera is a perfect place if you are looking for a place where you want to celebrate your special day. We went there to celebrate our anniversary, mouthwatering food, courteous staff, welcoming manager ( Ganesh), overall amazing experience. in short they made our day. One must have SHAN-E-DERA... Place lives upto its name, it is 'Taj'.

Stayed at the Taj on business and had our first night meal here. Service was warm and inviting and we were guided through the local and regional dishes by a lively and enthusiastic staff. Being from the UK and eating Indian food weekly, we were surprised to find how much the curry had evolved in the UK, when the Poppadoms... More

The restaurant serves Punjabi and hyderabadi cuisine. we ordered some hyderabadi stuff which was ok. Staff was helpful. Desserts though was average(rather overpriced). We had something like a rasmalai which was average.

Why does a person visit a fine dining restaurant? Is it only for the great food that one gets, or is it for the overall experience? Hubby and I decided to visit Dera, since there was a Hyderabadi food festival being organised there, with a chef having flown in from Hyderabad. The food was well prepared, right from the signature... More

Description
Dera, the elegant Indian restaurant, presents an inviting ambience with its split level design, warm lighting, show kitchen and interactive counter. The menu showcases an array of traditional delicacies from the Punjab with specialities from Amritsar, Lahore and Peshawar yet with a contemporary touch as they are cooked in virgin olive oil. Mobile trolleys serving fresh phulkas (Indian breads), as well as delicious dal-tadka (tempered pulses), add to the enjoyable dining experience. Open only for dinner.
