Built like an Edwardian Hall around the central chandelier, The Residency wears its theme diligently. The large space does make it easy to navigate around the buffet, which seems rather unexciting on the variety front. A well executed selection of mains makes up for the limp salad and sparse appetisers. Courtesy Dakshin, the South Indian food is excellent, as is the international fare. North Indian dishes are just about serviceable but the staid desserts will leave you wanting.
When it comes to global cuisine, very few restaurants manage to hit the spot. It is about the correct balance of décor, ambience, service and flavour, which achieves the desired effect. A restaurant can alone pull itself from the depths of non-entity by its food alone, but the ambience can take it a long way. Some places have gained a reputation of sorts when it comes to an all-round finesse and counted in the short list is ‘The Residency’ of Crowne Plaza hotel.

The Residency tops the list. The restaurant is a highly opted dining choice for families and even businessmen who like to take advantage of the restaurant’s classic interiors.
Built along the classy old-fashioned lines, The Residency is the epitome of elegance. The décor feels as if it is stuck in a time wrap, from the wall to wall carpeted floor to the vast levelled ceiling carrying a huge crystal chandelier. Scalloped arches are draped with heavy deep coloured curtains and the furniture is upholstered in a patterned fabric. The style of décor is distinctly vintage so you get a sense of nostalgia when you peek in. The Residency leaves no stone unturned as far as elegance is concerned. The place is ideal for family dinners or small key celebrations as it’s wonderfully spacious but expensive. It may be slightly noisy for business meetings but if you pick a corner table, you might get the privacy you wanted.
