Excellent food, Impeccable service, great ambience. The dishes were prepared to our special requirements (zero chilli) perfectly. I especially enjoyed the view of live cooking and preparation of dimsums from our seating position. Although they seem to have sufficient (or more) management level staff, after...1.00 pm; when we arrived by 12.30 pm, there was no one to greet us at the counter and direct us to our reserved seating. This caused us about 3 mins waiting, which I feel, should not occur. This is an honest feedback to be looked into and corrected.More

We ate here while staying in the hotel. We were really well looked after. Carefully walked through the dishes and catering to our needs. Portion sizes were large and share the dishes between us. Out of the 5 restaurants we tried in the Taj, this...was our top choice (for not curry). Great service, great food, great ambiance.More

We spent 2 nights at Taj Palace and decided to have dinner at the restaurant. This was probably our best meal of the whole trip. Especially the head of service, kind gentleman retiring this month after 40 years of service made our stay exceptional. All...the best. We will return!More

Fabulous meal at the Golden Dragon. The spare ribs were delicious, as were the crispy prawns. The Singapore noodles were very tasty but rather lacking in chicken.

I saw that Golden Dragon had Beijing Duck (one of my favorite meals) on the menu, so I immediately reserved a table and a duck for the following night. I’ve eaten Beijing Duck hundreds of times, including at most of the top Beijing Duck restaurants...in Beijing. I have to say that the duck I had at Golden Dragon was the worst — it wasn’t even Beijing Duck. It was a dry, overcooked roast duck seasoned with Chinese spices that clashed with the plum sauce that usually accompanies Beijing Duck. No Beijing Duck tastes like this. There was no golden brown, crispy skin that separated from the meat. It was just a badly cooked, regular roast duck. The restaurant should either take this dish off the menu or send the chef to Beijing for a week to learn how to make something that actually would resemble Beijing Duck.More

We were staying at the hotel and decided to visit this restaurant by booking in advance. It was an out of the world experience. Right from the starters to the soup to the main course to the desserts, the food was superb. One can experience...similar Asian dishes at other restaurants but the taste here along with the service was at another level. Highly recommended while in MumbaiMore

This renovated restaurant carries legacy from the olden days for its authentic chinese cuisine and a sad note of the carnage carried out by terrorist. The restaurant had a packed seating fully due to festival of Parsis. Fortunately the booking reservation was done well in...advance. Most of the staff seem been working from a long time and have carried the Taj legacy. Top managers are changing. Both have seen to it that the service are well attended as most clientele have a great expectation. The chef who form a backbone need to be commended for their excellent dining out various dishes to the taste of the visitors. Our experience has been good. Fully veg and well served. A slight glitch but was taken care well. Only regret was some foreigner who dine out have a particularly loud noise when rthey speak on their cell phones regardless of the surrounding and whether their stiff upper voice is disturbing others. There is no particular dish that I would recommend as whatever we ordered was upto markMore

We went to this restaurant after reading positive reviews on various online platforms but unfortunately we found this restaurant not that great. Service was okay but quality of food and taste was not of Taj standards. We ordered Stone wok vegetable, Sliced fish with pepper...and stir fried chicken with black pepper and found that none of the dishes had that wow feeling. Overall very disappointing experience.More

We went to Golden Dragon for dinner on a Friday evening at 8pm. Reservations are required because it fills up quickly. The food and service were excellent, and absolutely worth the price. We ordered the stir fried prawns with ginger, scallion and chilli, the lemon...coriander soup with chicken, the lobster butter chilli oyster, the sautéed scallops, ginger, garlic and broccoli, the burnt garlic stir fried rice with seafood, and the dark chocolate toffee with honey nut crunch ice cream. Everything was nice, but the scallops and lobster dishes were exceptional. The scallops were perfectly cooked, and the sauce that the lobster came with is one of the best I've ever had. The prawns were also delicious. The service was quick, and the waiters were very helpful and made good recommendations. I will definitely visit again.More
