Special mention: You may see buffet spread having less variety although chef can be approached anytime and ask for change in taste or any specific item of your wish,... More

We ate two breakfasts (included with our room) and one dinner. Food was solid with nice variety. After travelling in India for 3 weeks, we wanted some non Indian alternatives and this place was better then most we had throughout our trip.

Visited Shamiana restaurant recently on a weekend for a lunch buffet and as usual, it was a great experience. Shamiana has moved from behind the reception to in front of the reception and it is more roomy and has a better spread of the various cuisine. The service by the staff is impeccable and you are lavished so much attention... More

The new avtaar is amazing. Much bigger space. Superb ambience and you can sit right in front of the open kitchen where the chefs are cooking your food fresh. Though the menu could have been a bit more. But nevertheless it was great. A definite place I will visit again and again.

This is new since my last visit in 2015, I think, It has a good range of food offerings across several cuisines, and what I've had here on two visits with my wife have been very good. I believe the prices are lower than hitherto and this accounts for the popularity, but the crowds are not a problem.

The famous Shamiana is back where it belongs with a fresh new look although i would have preferred the interiors to be the way it was. The food is good and well priced.
