Lavish spread for breakfast - breakfast finishes at 10-30 am so for those still on India time, its easy to run out of time. Lunch spread is also lavish. Decent vegetarian options too. I particularly enjoyed the sashimi at the lunch buffet.More

Description
With creativity and imagination we have transformed the dining experience. Chefs in show kitchens present a multi-cultural cooking theatre. At any time of the day select from cuisine ranging giant baskets of fruits bring bursts of colour; the wine bar itself is a vivid backlit pink. The space is transitionary, designed for changing moods from muted to energetic up to the fresh and airy garden views. You could dine here every night of the week and the only similarity in experience would be the excellent quality of the food.
