Made to consume some random preparation while I asked for Rajmaa!!
Reviewed 12 hours ago

Took out my friend for an evening meal on her birthday. She staff suggested rajma Chawal would be a good pick as we are Vegan and also told us that we cant get a Birthday cake/ vegan desert.

To our surprise, we were served Roti- sabzi papad. Once we informed the staff that we were expecting rajma chawal, the Roti's were replaced with Rice. We had to again point out that we asked for rajmaa- after a 10 minute convo, the staff returned wit the same random sabzi saying that Rajmaa cant be prepared without Dairy products.

I didn't want my friend to return home without having a lunch, so we had to eat whatever was served to us. Also not sure why a Vegan option for Desert/ cake is not available?

I suspect there must have been some miscommunication between the serving staff and the kitchen staff.

Invoice copy available, in case any one wishes to know more.

Great hotel for kids!
Reviewed 1 day ago

I usually don’t post reviews but had to this time because of few incidences that made our stay memorable. We have stayed at Taj Mumbai and other Taj locations but this was our first time with kids and it exceeded our expectations. I wish I knew the names of all the staff members we interacted with but special mention to Chetan Konde for going the extra mile to make our little one happy. Highly recommend the hotel for couple and family with young kids.

Taj moments

Taj is taj. The property, the food, the ambiance, the services, this is where you get everything. I just had lunch there and couldnt keep myself from licking my fingers. I would love to stay here some day but cant afford right now. #tajmoments

High quality, luxurious experience in Mumbai
Reviewed 2 days ago

We spent three nights at the Taj and couldn't be happier. While it was more costly than most other hotels in mumbai, the experience is worth it. The staff were remarkable and always eager to help, they are there at your door 24 hours it seems to provide any assistance.

The breakfast was well done for a buffet. I had the Indian fare, but my husband had the western food. We both thought the food was excellent considering its a buffet. They even made a special omelet for him (which was not part of the offering).

It was my husband's birthday while we were there, the hotel surprised him with an arrangement in the room with balloons, flowers and cake. It made his day special.

Watch the TV station about the history of the hotel. If you're lucky, there will be an Indian wedding or two taking place during your stay.... you can observe the customs and music from the comforts of your room if you're facing India gate. A great cultural experience.

If you want a luxurious experience in Mumbai, the Taj is the way to do it right. Historical property that is also gay friendly and a destination on its own. Their tag line really resonated with us: "Tajness, you can feel it with your eyes closed. "
