We ate only once in the restaurant. The food was tasty with wide selection of meat and vegetarian dishes and good selection of wines. From the restaurant you can watch the main stage with program every evening.

Excellent meal on both visits. The menu now includes several taster menus as well as the a la carte options. If you go for the taster option make sure you are hungry as there is a lot of food. If you can, take the time to watch the nan chef manning the special nan ovens - fascinating. Love the black... More

This is a grown up Indian restaurant. And worth it despite the high price tag. Set in the luxurious surrounding of the Shanghai La, this restaurant is the jewel in the crown. The food is mouth watering with a fabulous selection of dishes and fresh ingredients. This is worth a dinner as a special treat. You won't find many better... More

for me the best restaurant on the premisses of the touessrok. Whilst I am no really knowledgable to indian cuisine, food felt authentic. Menu lacked clarity a bit - we thought the options were choices , but whilst the waiter did not explain, and listened patiently, we were brought all things , so 4 x 3 different plates, like a...

Wow - the food was excellent started with the chicken tikka - you may think that's quite safe. The spices and succulence where out of this world, the best chicken tikka I have had in my life (and I've had a few!) if I had just had that I would have been impressed. Husband chose the salmon starter which was... More

We ate here twice during our stay at Tousserok. Warmly greeted with bindi presentation, the menus are reasonably varied. Wine and food are fairly expensive if you are paying privately and not as part of a hotel package. Budget for £50 per head plus wine at min of £30 per bottle.

Situated in the hotel, it is quite small so advisable to book. The food is very authentic and portion sizes are good (we shared 2 main courses between 3 of us and there was ample).
