I wasn't staying here, but was warmly welcomed for dinner. The whole experience was great, like a trip back in time to colonial days. The dining room was elegant and lit by candles and a pianist was playing non stop. Staff were decked out in white uniforms and a set menu was on the table, consisting of a list of continental dishes. Apparently they alternate between a continental and Indian set menu.

We started with onion soup with warm bread rolls. Then an array of dishes were brought one after another and served together. I would have preferred it if the salads and spring rolls had been served first, then the hot items. You could ask for more of any dish. Dessert was yummy; blueberry cheesecake and a chocolate eclair.

With a few glasses of Sula wine and the attentive service, it was a lovely evening and an experience which is very rare these days. If you like elegant traditional dining, then Orchid Dining Room is highly receommended.
