We enjoyed 2 meals here over our stay of 3 days. The food is delectable to say the least. What merits special mention is the service. The restaurant runs on a skeletal staff due to the pandemic but the tables are always full with a mile long wait list. Rahul Singh and the team are efficient, attentive and friendly even under the pressure a full occupancy hotel faces. You may experience some wait, but the food makes it worth it!
