This is the only place to eat in the hotel, other than your room. I'm not complaining, we had 2 nights here and enjoyed every meal. The buffet in the evening was very comprehensive, mostly Indian food, but some Chinese and European. Breakfast was extensive, the eggs cooked to order were superb. Nice attentive but not oppressive staff and a visit by the head chef both nights was welcome.

Great Selection of breakfast and evening dinner .. Excellent service and attention by Head Chef Raj Bhatia.. The cooked wonderful dishes catering to our tastes and ensured every attention to detail.. Recommend anyone going to Shimla to stay at Oberoi and enjoy Raj's cooking.. He also held a cooking class for guests which was very insightful and taught us some new stuff ..

We are currently staying at the exemplary Oberoi Cecil in Shimla . The hotel and rooms are really beautiful and well maintained and the staff are charming and helpful We were treated to a cookery lesson from their excellent Head Chef Raj who prepared 5 of his delicious North Indian curry Several of the ingredients were unknown to us and really inspired us to try them out when we get back home.
We can recommend the Oberoi wholeheartedly.

I am currently at the Oberoi and chef Raj held a cooking lesson in the dining room this evening. Just amazing, the experience is without precedent for me. The flavors, spices, the curry paste, and the mustard oil. He made 3 dishes right in front of us, and we taste the flavorful dishes. what a delight! Did I mention mustard oil?

Next time you're in Shimla, stay at the Oberoi Cecil. I treated myself to an amazing massage too. Excellent service.
