Le cirque is part of the global fine dining establishment. The restaurant is situated in the tenth floor of the hotel and does not require room key to go to that floor. I went alone. Ate potato Gnocchi and fries with truffle. The food came in time and waiting was not much. The restaurant was not very busy and I... More

Visited this restaurant for a dinner while staying in the hotel. The food was pretty good, though the portion sizes were pretty small for the dish I ordered (lobster ravioli). We ordered an Indian sangiovese at the recommendation of the staff and it was excellent. Equally dessert (chocolate fondant) was excellent. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Went with a group of 4 on a business dinner. Although no reservation was made the hostess was kind to accommodate our table on a busy night. We were served at the bar while our table was getting ready. Ordered martinis served to perfection, which were made by the maitre d himself. In the middle we were told that our... More

Nice located restaurant on the 10th floor of the hotel with a range of Italian and western style food. Good quality and very friendly service; for me a little bit overprized for the offered choice of food.

A bit underwhelmed really. Small portions and nothing amazing to me. The wine list by the glass was also underwhelming. And I was served by about 6 different people which made it feel a little unfriendly.

A bit over rated place, it is a good place to have food with nice views in the evening. But trying to be too more posh then it really is.

We went with the Le Cirque, a very upscale and contemporary French-Italian restaurant with an airy open kitchen within a large dining area. At the entrance there is a small quiet bar with minimal seating for... More

Probably very strange for a tourist visiting India for the very first time but we thought that we should "ease" ourselves in gently before embarking on the "full Indian" eating experience.
