As a Mumbaikar, the Taj Mahal Hotel is holds a very special place in our hearts and making a visit to the majestic hotel is surely on the top of everyone’s wishlist, even Michelin star restaurants may take a backseat compared to a restaurant inside the Taj.
La Patisserie, as the name suggests is a small restaurant on the ground floor of the Taj Palace that serves mouth-watering Desserts and Bakery Dishes. When you take your first steps inside and even before you think of eating, you are mesmerized by the unmatched beauty of this luxurious hotel.
On our visit to this place we tried out their Chocolate Truffle Pastry, Chocolate Florentine, Coffee Croissant and few of their specialty Chocolates like Sea Salt and Truffles, all of which were delicious with the Chocolate Truffle Pastry being my favorite. However a few disappointments were that the dishes were served on paper plates and with plastic spoons, something that you wouldn’t expect from a restaurant in Mumbai’s top Hotel but the biggest disappointment is that this place shuts down at very early around 8.30 PM.
Pros : Good food and Amazing ambiance, pocket friendly rates compared to other restaurants here.
Cons : Shuts down quite early, less seating and dishes served on paper plates.
P.s : Do visit this place earlier in the day as we visited around closing time and most of their dishes were sold out for the day.
Location : Ground Floor, The Taj Mahal Palace, Appolo Bunder, Colaba.
Cuisine : Bakery and Desserts.
Cost for two : Rs.1200 (approx)
