I visited this restaurant for lunch during my stay in Delhi. This time we order Chinese food, which was just below the standard. Though we had Indian food for many time before, which is good.The restaurant is nice and centrally located with good service.

Located in the inner circle of Cannaught Place of New Delhi, it is ideally located. It is readily accessible by Delhi Metro, Rajiv Chowk stop. The food is delecious

I visited this hotel once in 2002 and again in 2017. Had dinner with friends. Very nice ambience and service. One of my friend is a regular visitor at this place so we had an added advantage. The food was also great, a bit expensive but when you are at heart of city that was expected.

We went as a group of 7 people. The food service was crappy while the quality was good but too bland. Vegetarian choices are plentiful.

As a Westerner we found this food to our taste....however it was so much to our taste I think it was like eating Indian food in the UK. I suspect its location lends itself to being too commercial; catering to the masses I guess We enjoyed the meal but would have liked something more authentic

After a exhaustive tour of Delhi attractions we were going to Railway station and picked up "The Host" restaurant in inner circle of Cannaught place, The ambiance was cool and service was excellent . The north Indian food is good in quality.

Once we had found a restaurant with no stairs (for my nearly blind father), good food and enough selection to keep everyone happy we went back a few times during the week.
