We are staying at the hotel "The Cecil" which I will review at the end of our stay but I must comment on this restaurant which serves mouthwatering curry prepared in the Himachal style. My lentil dumplings in a curry sauce plus lentils and vegetables of the day was delightful. It was freshly prepared expertly spiced and a gourmet treat.... More

One meal we particularly enjoyed was a dinner buffet, although you could also order from a menu... More

'The Restaurant' perfectly reflects the Oberoi Experience. It has a good variety of food options with very friendly chefs. Muffins and south Indian food are a must try.

We visited the restaurant at the Cecil on our last day in India and it was amazing beyond our expectations. From the kebabs to the local curries to the garlic butter naan, we were treated to a true culinary experience. The service, as with all Oberoi hotels, was just impeccable. Warm and welcoming while professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend visiting!
