Probably very strange for a tourist visiting India for the very first time but we thought that we should "ease" ourselves in gently before embarking on the "full Indian" eating experience. As far as Italian cuisine goes this restaurant has a certain take on it placing the dishes into a more modern feel to some classics so if your'e looking... More

Perhaps a little overrated and pricy . We were spoilt for choice during the weeks visit to India , and unfortunately Le Cirque was the least impressive of all the lunches and dinners. The fusion of Indian did not work and many dishes were not finished at our table of 6 . In addition the waiters just could not get... More

By virtue of my job I travel length and breadth of Europe but I have found the ambience of this restaurant as unmatchable to any European restaurant.The food is great , staff courteous .

This restaurant is just amazing! I cannot fault anything about this place. The food was exquisite- 2 of us had pork belly, 1 duck, 1 raging. Everything was perfectly cooked and flavoursome. The service was exceptional. Pricey but just worth it. Wish this was in Perth! Go there if you get chance.

Ante dining room very austere, not decorated like Italian or French. Kitchen open to this room. Reservation required. Service was excellent, as expected – someone coming to the table every 60 seconds to see if you are happy. Had a meal that was good but not memorable. I had one glass of Malbec which was OK but I have had... More

The decor and atmosphere of Leela Palace is amazing and when you reach the top floor to visit the Cirque restaurant you will not be dissapointed by the exceptional welcome and beatiful design of the restaurant. We had lobster ravioli and risotto which were one of the best we've tried in years. The special dessert of the day- creme brulee... More
