God food, with authentic taste especially the South Indian food. Breakfast buffet has many optional items custom made. The lunch buffet is not very elaborate but the outstanding courtesy and service compensate that

Salt is a fresh modern design. The breakfast buffet was outstanding and the chefs station offered freshly prepared items. I usually get the dosa masala for morningtime. At dinner time instead of the buffet, they offered a limited menu which was just superb. Sliced watermelon on a salted ice slab, delicious nachos, and many non Indian items. Although i love... More

Recently visited the place with my family. The food was excellent with great ambience and equally good service. Whether vegetarian or non vegetarian, Indian or Chinese or Japanese, the taste was simply awesome. Loved every bite I had here. Yes, the place is definitely expensive. But then, good food makes up for it.

Highly recommend eating here, as they offer Eastern and Western food and a lot of choice. Very friendly and accommodating staff. They even did a choreographed dance for us during lunch! The dosas and idly are especially delicious.

We had our buffet breakfast at this restaurant before checking out.The spread is huge but the service is a little slow. My order for Waffles took more than 15 minutes to be delivered.

Now to the basics Ambience - 4/5 The... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch before catching a movie @ Palazzo. Good food, although on the costlier side. Helpful staff and wonderful ambiance.

I enjoyed my dinner at the Salt Co. 531 restaurant. We were in a hurry and had literally an hour before I had to be at the airport. They expedited everything and delivered the food to us at an astonishingly fast rate. The items I enjoyed the most include the deep fried shrimp with honey sauce and the mash potatoes... More
