I ordered their veg dinner buffet menu. My stomach was filled in the appetizer round itself thanks for a poorly friend single piece of 200 gm cauliflower and then a big one piece of 300 gm spaceless paneer. For me, the most precious real estate...in the world is my stomach space. So I was very disappointed. I could not enjoy the main course or dessert. I had to leave most of the main course. I respect food and hate leaving behind food. However, poor food planning by this restaurant made me do that. By the way, the main course had big unbaked, uncooked raw stuffed Shimla Mirch - full piece. Not sure why they are obsessed with full large piece of vegetables. I had expected more sophisticated, right portioned food from them. Sitting next to the pool was a good experience. That saved the day for us. Almost everyone in my dinner party left disappointed.More

We have been coming here for years, this time i found something very pleasant and very changed atmosphere. We have been staying here but this time the staff and hospitality both were amazing. I and my wife were pleased and felt positive after many years...just because of the courteous staff. Special mention to Lata, Arushi , Shraddha, and Chef Arvind. I wish best for the staff and the people working here offering the great hospitality.More

Wouldn't recommend this place. It has few vegan options, and the food is very spicy. We told the staff to make it mild and they said it would be mild, but it was still too spicy to eat.More

The ambience and service is no doubt great, but what really stands out is the food, as is usually the case at ITC restaurants. The dal is always an ITC favourite, but the main chicken starter here is worth making a visit just for that....Only caveat is to not overdo it because it really is rich and can leave you terribly queasy after.More
