Had stayed there with the family. The Amritsari breakfast stole the show for us. Live stations offering some delicious warm parathans, kutchas, bharuta and what not. Just could not stop eating. None of us even bothered with the eggs and continental options that were available. Absolutely delicious . Lovely bright restaurant with a very hospitable staff.

The Cafe 17 is a lively looking place. Had buffet at lunch. The spread is generous - but more of the usual stuff. Food was good - the tomato soup was nice and tangy and had a good punch. Followed it with some papri chaat. The spicy chicen salad was simple and well made. The chicken curry was rich but... More

A typical Taj cafe -- clean, decent multi-cuisine spread (for the buffet), decent service. Pros: - Reasonable number of items from different cuisines to make it a true multi-cuisine buffet - Western dishes were authentic - Excellent salad bar, dips/breads - Good dessert selection Cons: - Labeling of items was a bit off when we were there (Cream of Chicken...

The boys are on vacation and we decided to try the buffet lunch at the Taj. Was a little wary after my experience at their Chinese restaurant last month, but you can't blame a girl for trying! The restaurant is surrounded by an artificial waterfall on one side, so it provides soothing views. The food is just about passable, and... More

For a Taj, this place is just above average. Had a nice time with family, but better buffet options are available around Chandigarh..

I had to travel to Chandigarh the weekend of my wife's birthday and reserved a buffet lunch for her here to continue the celebration. However, considering that this was in the Taj, I was more than a little disappointed with the food. It was strictly average, and considering the cost, I'd say it was downright pathetic. The dry snacks were... More
