just waking around with the peacocks is a treat. The food is really good and the staff are nice. Loved the lunch and just sitting and watching the view of the city from the outside. Would love to visit again !

Situated on a hilltop, this garden restaurant provides panoramic views of Madurai and is a perfect place to have a relaxed lunch. There was a gentle breeze blowing when we went there and there were a few peacocks prancing around. One has the option of either taking a table in the garden or seating inside. The place is also children friendly and our two and a half year old daughter had a very good time. We went for a lunch buffet and found the spread very sumptuous and fulfilling. They had a very good mix of Indian, continental, veg and non veg. The soups were very good and so were the desserts. It definitely comes at a price but the money is worth spent.

It is easily approachable and one of the prestigious staying place in Madurai. Their hospitality from the entrance to check out is marvelous.
Further, we can get very tasty food from the morning break fast to night supper.Their room service is good and provide very cool atmosphere.

The place is a visit just to see the location, the greenery and the view. There was a peacock just walking around the restaurant, a rarity

While I didn't actually stay at the Taj, I did visit it a couple of times in the past year, mostly to meet up with friends.

The good points: The ambience is gorgeous. I have never seen Madurai look more beautiful than from that hilltop. The food served is delicious and at the right temperature (the soup is hot and the icecream is cold ;) )

The bad: Unless you're getting there by car, I would suggest you don't wear heels. The Hotel is situated on top of a hill and the hike is quite steep at points. The food comes in very meagre amounts unless you've ordered a la carte and may seem expensive but it was worth it.
