Does anyone have any recommendations for where a group of nine could have lunch following a tour of the Taj Mahal? The reviews on TripAdvisor are not helpful.

- It would be nice if we could dine somewhere that serves alcohol. (Not sure how it works in India, but I've been to restaurants in other countries that don't serve alcohol.)
- Natural, pretty surroundings, such as gardens with trees, are always a plus.
- We are willing to spend as much as $30/person, but would prefer to spend closer to $10/person.

Good hotels may have bar license, otherwise you can buy alcohol at Liquor store and enjoy in your hotel room or sometime place known as Ahata next to Liquor store where you can enjoy Liquor.

Last time my auto driver took us for lunch near Taj Mahal, it was nice place. He waited outside and I think these drivers get commision. You can also try that, One dollar is enough for Auto Driver and for Lunch $ 5.
Best Regards,

ITC Mughal is a good place for lunch. It is not far from Taj. Try their Peshawri restaurant. Very good for tandoori items.

Thanks so much! I was trying to find a review of their restaurants, but there wasn't anything on TripAdvisor. (Most of my group are Starwood members, so we like any opportunity to get more points, and the ITC's in India are all Starwood properties.)

ITC's Indian restaurants don't need reviews! The world's finest Indian restaurants measure themselves against 'Dum Phukt', 'Peshawari' and 'Bukhara'. Pricey, but worth it!

Thanks for the links! I will definitely go to the one in Agra, and at least of the ones in Delhi.

I didn't know anything about the ITC's before your comment; I figured they were like Westins in the United States, which are nice, but not really nice. I learned something new today.

When an Indian restaurant in London, New York or Mumbai wants to brag about the culinary skills of their head chef, the best boast is to say that he was trained at one of the gold standard ITC restaurants above.

THE ONE to go to in Delhi is 'Bukhara'. Mucho mullah though, so be prepared. Do report back.
