When you enter you walk into an impressive, sleek bar area with a warm glowing fire and pictures adorning the walls with Maharajahs and Maharinis as well as other notable people. As you walk through the saloon doors, you are greeted by an breathtakingly beautiful chandelier and main dining room with its own resident pianist – who was amazing to listen to! We then were guided into their conservatory for brunch. Loved the relaxed, bright airy feel and decor in the conservatory! We kicked off proceedings with a visit to the chaat stand – Bombay Brasserie’s take on the street food stalls in India serving quick bite-sized snacks. I had the full selection of: bhel puri, coconut prawns, pani puri with vegetable pakora and a tandoor cooked chicken in a dill marinade – a very colourful, and tasty, start to my brunch experience. We especially loved the coriander and cumin crust on the talapia, comfort of the soft, pillowy paneer and the spicy hit from the gunpowder potatoes. Now, as we have a sweet tooth, we had actually checked out the dessert selection even before visiting the chaat stand; can you fault us?! Amazing desserts on offer, including chikki (caramel brittle) and mango and fig kulfis, chocolate shrikhand (a strained yoghurt dessert), warm gulab jamun, and exotic fruit selection. Plus unusual dessert twists: Beetroot cake and tender coconut raisin kheer (rice pudding). As I said before, we are dessert people and always check out menus and buffets to save space for those sweet delights at the end, so we particularly loved the mango and fig kulfi, as it had such an intense flavour! We would recommend visiting for both the ambiance and also to enjoy refined Indian cuisine with traditional, warm Taj Hotels Group service. Recommend visiting, especially for celebrations!
