The setting for tea is stunning and the hotel is a fantastic oasis away from hustle and bustle of the city. Unfortunately the afternoon tea doesn't live up to the setting. All food is now served buffet-style and not in individual towers which definitely takes...More

This is such a historic palace, a must visit in Delhi. GreaT place for tea with a selection of superb cakes and pastries after a shopping trip at the Cottage Industries across the road.

High tea in the atrium was a wonderful experience, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The sandwiches and cake were delicious. They have an extensive selection of teas to choose from. Yes it is expensive for what you get, but as a treat it's worth it.More
