“Poor service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The staff at promenade is ill trained and there is inordinate delay in getting your order and bill. The range of items in the menu is also limited. Waiters are unable to explain to the diners regarding the composition of any dish. In short training is badly required.

“Great food, Nice place”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Everything about this place was alright. The rooftop dining experience was enjoyable, their service was efficient, and the food was great. They have quite a decent array on the menu, so spend some time to study it before ordering. I have dined here twice already, and both dishes I ordered were fairly decent. I would have wanted to try the buffet at the ground floor, but I didn't want to over indulge that night. I was told the place is owned by the same group of Hidesign, which is why a lot of leather was used in the interiors.

“Over hyped but great location”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We tried the Sunday brunch at The Promanade. The spread was average with not many options for sea food. However they did has a live grill fish counter that doled out really tiny fish portions. But the bass was fresh and succulent and the staff courteous. The buffet was pricy but then this is a five star property. I also wish they had better selection of deserts. The fresh fruit platter was primarily papaya and pineapple. The location is fantastic though. Maybe the a la carte menu would fare better.

“Ok Food Slow Service”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We decided to have lunch here for the view but unfortunately we were not allowed outside as they were about to shoot a Bollywood Movie in the Outside area.

Next after 5 weeks in India we saw Wood Fired Pizza on the menu only to be told they werent doing them today. Strike 2.

When we did to order service was very slow if not non-existant.
Food was just OK when it did arrive.

There are better places to eat as we found out at Villa Shanti that night.
