Did you have dinner at one or more of the the following restarants:

Spice Route at The Imperial Hotel
Masala Art at The Taj Palace Hotel
360 Degrees at The Oberoi Hotel
Haveli at Taj Mahal Hotel
Bukhara Maurya Sheraton Hotel
Dum Pukht ITC Maurya Sheraton Hotel

What did you like, what did you dislike. Which one would you recommend for a romantic dinner.

Like to hear your comments.

hi C
i have had dinner at the spice route and i have to say that the thai food was the best i have ever had (haven't been to thailand though )

Apart from the incongruity i feel when visiting such places as compared to my normal choice of restaurant, i can vouch for the spice route as scoring pretty highly on the romantic scale....i certainly got lucky (and she paid!!)

La Piazza, Hyatt - Fine Wine and Pasta always sets the mood!

I have eaten at all of the above except Masala Art, that sounds like a new one to me ....your choice seems to be Indian rather than western food. Pls note Spice Route is not Indian but a mix of far eastern cuisine. It used to be my fav ( literally the only -ve point is if you are a smoker, as it does not allow smoking to preserve its art work... for non-smokers that is bliss) , I think I just got bored with the place.
360 degrees is great but set in very contemporary surroundings, and pretty expensive ... though have eaten there a few times , the one time I paid ... party of 3 , at least 2 courses each ( 1 even had 6 oysters) 2 bottles of decent wine and couple of whiskies....bill was about gbpounds 150.
Haveli ..nothing interesting...live music , quite busy. went a few years ago and somebody else paid so cannot tell much.
same with Bukhara..but pls note really do not recommend this for romantic dinner as 1. you sit on low level uncomfortable stools with no backs and 2. you are hurried through as they need your table back urgently.
Dum Pukht..sorry only had lunch there but overall it seemed same as Haveli , though food was pretty good

I also used to love going to La Piazza at the Hyatt when i lived in Delhi but again...pretty expensive and of course , Italian food and not so good as abroad.

I hope the above helps, if you need any more help ,shout.

My choice would be The Spice Route. The food is excellent and the decor is GORGEOUS. Quiet, low lighting, and a very romantic setting.

Everything about the Imperial Hotel is romantic - but expensive. Good for a visit occasionally though and yes, I reckon that would be my choice. I like having afternoon tea there too, nice garden setting. Hyatt Regency is not as romantic. Park Hotel has superb food, but the setting not so romantic either. With the Imperial they have very interesting historical pictures on all the corridor walls etc. Make good conversation pieces if you got stuck for words!
Every cloud has a silver lining!

If you love Italian food have a candle light dinner at Diva in GK-II, M block market.
They have a great cellar too.
