“Geting used to”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

I don't know if I am getting used to this restaurant and slowly I am seeing the difference.

We visited (me and my wife and daughter) for a dinner this month.

To our surprise the position of the buffet items was changed. There was a mix of veg and non veg items and it was a struggle to locate the item you need on the buffet.

When enquired we were informed that basing on the type of cuisine the items were arranged and in the process veg and non veg items were side by side causing embarrassment for vegetarians like me. We have informed the captain there about this. They said they will take care in future.

Food was very good and tasty as usual and the spread was excellent.

But for the change we enjoyed our dinner and recommend for a visit whenever possible.

“Not exactly 'fine dining'”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Food:
We opted for a buffet lunch - pretty fine but nothing too amazing. There was a lot to choose from, some being good and some pathetic. Like the custom pizza was too good and the rice/biriyani/Indian being below average. And when it came to desserts, we had a lot to choose from. I managed to try most of them and I couldn't find a reason to complain.

Ambiance:
Big and again nothing much to write about. If you are happy looking at huge empty spaces, you will do good.

BUT, there was this 'fly' problem. Yea, I had to swat flies and that is certainly something I do not want to do. And that is the reason preventing me from taking a 2nd look at this place.
I did not complain, because it is the responsibility of the hotel or the restaurant manager to make sure things are fine and it is not the guests who should tell them how to do it.

The restaurant seems to the place a lot of IT companies choose for team lunches and when that happens, the place is a mess. I dont blame the hotel for it, but just telling you if you are the type who does like to be in a crowd, jostling for space and cutlery during their fine dining experience.

The service is excellent and the staff seemed genuinely happy to help.

“Good Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Loved the food. though the varieties were limited on the stand , the open kitchen served lot of hot dishes. Pizza's were amazing too. The made to order pasta was perfect too. I would have rated more if the Air conditioning was better. It wasn't fixed despite our request and it did spoil the entire experience

“average buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

This is located at the main lobby where people get their buffet. Simple and clean setup. Nothing fanciful. The staff are generally helpful. Some find the selection fantastic, i find them average. While no major complains, nothing to shout about as well.

Instead, I thought their ala carte menu was slightly better. I tried the roasted salmon, it was not bad.
