Since 1982, India's best and most famous French restaurant. It is a replica of a bogey on the Venice-Simplon Orient Express as revived in the 1980s and though the original concept of serving the food of the regions on the route has now been junked, there is still a sense of grand service and high quality food of the sort you see only in European movies. It remains the place for a big blow-out meal, a birthday or a celebration of any kind. But take lots of money – it ain’t cheap.
This is the restaurant where you get one of the finest Chinese and Thai dishes. Their taste is superb and every dish is tasty and delicious. Service is excellent and courteous. Governor Amolak Rattan Kohli
We were on a week's furlough to New Delhi for my wife's 40th birthday and I wanted to find a restaurant that had a unique and distinctive atmosphere for her special occasion and by God did we find it. From the moment I made the booking and informed Dixit that it was for my wife's birthday I knew we were in good hands. He was always available to me and constantly reassuring me that all was in hand despite the fact we were staying at another hotel. On our arrival we were transported into another world, and not in any sort of kitsch manner, despite what you may think. The decorations are immaculate and you feel completely transported into the golden age of the 'Orient Express'. The table decoration included a Happy Birthday constructed with some time and effort and the manners of the waiters were impeccable from the start. I have not had a great deal of experience with French Cuisine but whether it counts for anything the food was absolutely outstanding from start to finish and the extras they provided for my wife's birthday were very much appreciated. The meal was accompanied throughout by a Pianist playing in the 'Station Area' of the restaurant and this chap was supremely talented and completely unobtrusive. To complete a remarkable evening, the gentle tone of Happy Birthday started playing on the piano and my wife was presented with an exceptional Chocolate Cake and a dozen Red Roses. We felt like the only people in the world and I know she felt like the Queen that she is. Thank you Orient Express, Dixit and all the Staff.
This is one of the best places to have your Chinese and Thai meals and snacks in India. Your experience is wonderful and service is full of courtesy. Governor Amolak Rattan Kohli
What a fabulous evening at The Taj Palace Hotel’s ‘Orient Express restaurant’. The food was gorgeous , service impeccable and our own pianist ,who accommodated our every whim. The reconstruction of the railway carriage in Orient Express style ,is tastefully decadent and the seating so comfy. We were made to feel like very special guests, the staff were so engaging, we wanted for nothing for the whole evening Thank you Taj!
One of my favorite restaurants in the world! This upscale restaurant is an identical replica of the original Orient Express train. French inspired menu, I highly recommend the scallops, magret duck and sea bass. The decor is lovely, you feel so comfortable and taken care of by the service oriented staff. Outside the talented pianist plays all your favorite romantic songs. If you are in the New Delhi area, and looking for a special occasion, this is a must visit experience!
Few restaurants in New Delhi takes pride at being the oldest and poshest. ‘Orient Express’ at Taj Palace Hotel, Sardar Patel Marg, Delhi, is a class apart from the other establishments. Place is very classy and simply oozes wealth. The design of the restaurant is based on Venice-Simplon luxury orient express complete with the plush sitting booth and loaded dining table with elegant crystals. Dimly lit lamps throws pale glow over the room looking stunning. The tables are simple and decorated with beautiful china. Orient express has been the best and most famous French restaurant since 1982. Though they have made some changes they still maintain grandeur and highest of European cooking standards. Chef DN Sharma is the whole soul of the restaurant and has been with them since the very start. His flair with simplest of ingredients is worthy of being sampled. The food that is delivered to your table is modern art on a plate.
The menu of Orient Express is not very lengthy. In short pages it manages to cover many delightful recipes. Start your meal with some soup. They have lobster bisque, essence of roasted chicken, wild morel tea with truffle shavings and Dutch asparagus soup with brioche crisps. Follow that with appetizers like pan seared goose liver with alder smoked salt, foie gras brulee with asparagus foam, balik salmon, scallop carpaccio, crab meat with citrus emulsion, Belgium endive, avocado salad, fig curved fennel salad with three pepper dressing and celeriac, marron chestnut brulee with swiss chard foam.

The restaurant has some signature dishes too. Cognac flambéed lobster, kobe with roasted shallots bearnaise sauce and camembert cheese soufflé with paprika sauce. As it is a posh restaurant caviar is also served here for some serious price. The meal would not be over till dessert is served. Blueberry cheesecake with champagne ice cream, valrhona mousse, apple crumble soufflé, olive oil medallion, mandarin with citrus emulsion and warm chocolate pudding with liquid chocolate center are chef’s beautiful desserts. Orient Express is one of the most expensive restaurant in the city so save it for some special occasion with your family and loved one.
