Indian restaurant at The Amarvilas An Oberoi resort. As the brand suggests the dinner was so luxurious even difficult to describe in words. Top quality food, scrumptious and very personalise service. What an evening spent with my wife. Will remember forever in my life. Truly romantic overlooking the Taj

Staff at the restaurant were smart and very attentive to each and everyone having food. It took 20 minutes to get the order but worth waiting as it was so delicious.

Considering this restaurant is in a very smart hotel the food was so disappointing, this was one of our last nights and I would say the worst meal, the restaurant decor is a real let down as well so dull.

When I first arrived, the staff could not find my reservation and were very rude. I was kept waiting for several minutes. Finally the found my reservation then showed me to a table. The atmosphere is lovely and the service was excellent, but the food was beyond disappointing for a place so highly recommended. I would not recommend.

We dined here and decided for the Indian curry being our last night in Agra India. They have two sittings 6.30pm and 9.30pm we chose the earlier sitting. Service was very good and food excellent. Not cheap but if you are staying in the Oberoi Amarvilas most things are expensive!!

The beauty of the Oberoi Amarvilas is reason enough to visit this restaurant; it is totally stunning. Esphahan itself is a good fine dining restaurant - not the best we went to in India, but very good. We had the tiffin meal and me for the highlights were the dark poppadoms served at the beginning of the meal and the... More

I think I expected more from an Oberoi resturant, so the expectations are also always higher. However, by normal standards the food is excellent.

We had dinner and breakfast here while staying at the Oberoi and enjoyed both immensely. The service couldn't be faulted and the food is excellent.

Bring your appetite. Each dish is better than the next. We eat Indian cuisine in the states, and last night we had a very good meal in Mumbai, but this restaurant beats them all. You can tell that each dish is prepared by a chef as a labor of love. If you are visiting the Taj Mahal or anywhere in... More
