Home to some of India’s finest fine dining restaurants, the Taj has celebrated & set the standard for culinary arts while creating memorable meals. Take for instance, a sublime dining experience under the stars at the Gol Bungalow that forms the tail end of the Taj Falaknuma Palace. Mesmerizing views of the old city and the stained glass dome make it a quintessential venue for a divine breakfast or romantic dinner. I spent five weeks in India in 2016 and loved it – touring places like Gujarat, Mumbai, Hampi, Port Blair and Agra.
For plush hotels, check out the Taj range. At the iconic Karavalli where authenticity is the hallmark, the Chefs have put together a distinctive compilation of vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies with extensive culinary journeys ranging from the best of the Mangalorean Bunts and Konkanis, Kodavas from Coorg, Malayalees, Calicut Muslims and Syrian Christians of Travancore, Havyaka Brahmins of Vitla and the Portuguese of Goa. Seasonal Curries and Wood fired dishes await you. The recipient of many awards both National and International and featured in the best food guides across the world like the one-of-its-kind Miele Food Guide, Karavalli has reinvented itself to give connoisseurs and gourmands a rejuvenated epicurean experience.
The glorious tradition of dining in style at Taj hotels prevails as the three brands offer distinctive dining experiences crafted by their individual philosophies and their legendary corporate chefs. Not only have professionally trained chefs and traditional master chefs taken the choicest regional Indian cuisines to create delectable signature dishes, in the past century, authentic Asian cuisines have been perfected at restaurants like Wasabi by Morimoto & Golden Dragon at The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai.
If dining at one of Asia’s 50 Best restaurants wasn’t tempting enough already, you can now expand your menu to privileges like picking from two rewarding add-on dining plans that are designed to delight – Epicure and Epicure Plus are both generous in their offering of benefits that allow you to earn incremental, easily redeemable points every time you dine at a Taj Group restaurant in India.
