When one decides to go and eat out in a place like Taj Falaknuma, it is not because they have the best food or the best prices; it is because it has what no other fine dining experience can offer, the royal touch.
Right from the time one enters the grand gates, to the walk up the entrance staircase, through the library and into the courtyard, you feel the richness of the Nawabi culture in action all around you.
Reservation are mandatory for the dining experience, an experience which is worth all the trouble it take getting there through the mad traffic of charminar.
Celeste was our choice of the day, Celeste serves classical Italian and Mediterranean. The moctails were a little bit of a let down (too flat), but the starters and the main course lived up to its expectations. The service was immaculate, not for a moment did one have to turn around looking for help, the servers were right there, waiting on you as if you are the center of their universe (guessing that’s teh service royal guests would have recieved) it did feel nice to be looked after that well.
If it were only for the food I would have called this place expensive, but if you talk about the entire experience I would rate this place far above any other place I have been too, worth every bit you spend.
It is recommended to go there while the evening sun is still out, enjoy the royal approach to the palace, chill out at the Hookah Lounge, where there is live sufi music (Playing all through June 2012 as per latest info), till around 8 enjoy the intoxicating view the soothing music and the charming drink, then head of to one of the best dining experiences and it would be a evening well spent.
