We had breakfast here during our 3 day stay and the spread was just amazing - live eggs counter, dosas, idlis, salads, sandwiches. The breakfast spread was amazing, the restaurant is very clean and the staff is very professional and courteous. Had lunch one day - butter chicken and chur chur naan - just amazingly delicious. Worth going not to be missed.

I had really wonderful Sunday Brunch at Essence with my Family. Very cooperative staff and adhered all the guidelines of Covid 19. Fully sanitized and hygienic place and the PASTA was really amazing. One should definitely visit Essence once you're in Ahmedabad. I would like to thank Mr. Aatif Shaikh specially for making us feel comfortable and serving the best food. I would highly recommend this place to my friends and family.

Staff didn't care to provide us Roti even after several reminders, water not served throughout whole meal, spoons not available at the designated places and need to go to kitchen to take it as the support staff present there didn't care to provide it after 2-3 reminders. This all happens when you take a guest from US with you. There should be a negative rating for such pathetic service

Review: A Horrible Dining Experience I had an appalling experience at [Essence Crowne plaza], a place I expected much more from given its reputation. Upon arrival, the table was not properly set. Basic necessities were missing, which should have been a red flag from the start. The buffet was poorly managed with cold food and empty trays that were not refilled in a timely manner. We had specifically requested Jain food for one person two days in advance, but many items were unavailable. Additionally, the staff brought the starter and main course together, a clear sign of poor service coordination. The soup arrived only after we had finished the starter, completely ruining the meal sequence. The quality of the food was also disappointing. The pasta had bad tomatoes, making it inedible, and the desserts were not up to the mark. Not a single dish met our expectations. Despite repeated requests for chilled water, only one person was served initially. We had to ask multiple times before the staff bothered to fill the other glasses. To add to the disappointment, the plates were just placed on the table without any effort to serve the dishes. It felt like the staff lacked basic training in hospitality and service. This was a horrible experience, especially at a hotel of such renown. I expected much better and was thoroughly disappointed.

Dear Guest, Thank you for bringing your recent experience at Essence, our all-day dining restaurant, to our attention. We sincerely apologize that your visit fell far short of your expectations and did not reflect the high standards we strive to maintain. We are deeply disappointed to learn about the issues you encountered, including the improperly set table, poorly managed buffet with cold food and empty trays, and the lack of attention to Jain food options despite your advanced request. The service coordination, with starters and main courses arriving together and the delayed soup, is completely unacceptable. The quality of the food, particularly the pasta and desserts, and the lack of attentiveness regarding the water service are all areas where we have fallen short. We understand how frustrating it must have been to experience such a series of problems, and we sincerely apologize for the disappointment this caused you. Our staff undergoes regular hospitality training, and it's clear we fell short in this instance. We will be reviewing your feedback with the entire team to ensure it doesn't happen again. We would be grateful for the opportunity to regain your trust. If you'd be open to it, we would love to invite you back for a meal where we can demonstrate the high-quality service and delicious food that Essence is known for. Please feel free to contact me directly at NandanSingh.Koranga@ihg.com to discuss this further. Thank you again for your feedback. It helps us identify areas for improvement and ensure we provide exceptional dining experiences for all our guests. Sincerely, Nandan S Koranga Food & Beverage Manager Crowne Plaza Ahmedabad

Good food. Personalised attention from all staff as they go around checking on what guests need. Specific suggestions regarding specialised cuisine given by Chef Manmohan was worth it. Ever smiling staff and extremely courteous. Special mention for Priyanka, Saunvir and Drashti who never appear hassled despite the holiday rush and extremely prompt and smart with service. Kudos to the team

Having spent just over a week here at the Crowne Plaza hotel, we have been served so nicely by the restaurant staff and in particular a young lady called Drashti who has so kindly been accommodating all out of needs with a wonderful smile and attitude. I would definitely recommend coming here and making sure you visit the restaurant. Great food & excellent service.

I'm a long stayer in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The service in the hotel is very good but the hotel's outstanding feature is its restaurant. Chefs Gautam and Sandip in particular, are always on hand to offer extra choice, cooked fresh to a high standard. Gautam's soups, especially his Chicken dumpling soup and Chicken Tom Yam are excellent. It says lots that mos of us stayin g in the hotel, are very happy to eat in. The sweet selection too, is awesome, as are the ice creams, particularly the Kesar (mango) & pistachio..

Crowne Plaza Ahmedabad , the place which has became next home for me in Ahmedabad. When you are at home other then home , needs thing to be like your own home when comes to food. The beauty of restaurant is the Team Led by Sunil , Executive Chef and supported by Supervisor Surya & Anupam , assisted by Dhrishti , Nidhi , Kaushik , Utkarsh. Ask Sunil to cook something out of Menu , trust me he won't let you down if you have discussed the taste and cooking with him , the way you want it. Had tried the same with cooking of Junglee Maas , the local Rajasthan cuisine delicacy which needs perfection and patience in cooking to get the original taste and it was cooked to perfection and when served with thick roti the same turns to finger licking meal. Thanks Sunil and team for such a memorable experience. Wish you and team very best of luck. Best Regards .
