Excellent service in a beautiful setting. Food was only part of the special dining experience. We were staying at the Imperial so it was certainly an easy choice but did not disappoint

We had a fabulous dinner at the Spice Route. The menu is a selection of dishes from some of the "Spice Route" regions including Indonesia, Kerala (India) , Vietnam & Thailand. This is however not the Indian Restaurant at The Imperial.... that is "Daniel's Tavern"!! The food was fantastic... No pork or beef on the menu. We opted for Lamb... More

I first visited this restaurant in 1998 - when it had just opened. I was attracted by what I had read, especially the decor which was curated by Rajiv Sethi with original artefacts, paintings and segments speaking to different styles of the region. Well, after all these years nothing has changed, and the restaurant retains its historic beauty. Its worth... More

Visited this restaurant twice while staying at The Imperial and enjoyed the meal both times. I agree with some of the comments about price, but the taxes are what they are. I felt the wine list, which was the same in every restaurant in the hotel, could have had a different twist to it. In fact each restaurant should have... More

Quality of food is oké, but the already high end prices become excessive when the check is presented with unexpected taxes. Menu pricing should clearly include and show these taxes on the moment of ordering.
