The prices of Taj West End are not right. We went today for with alcohol it is 3500 without taxes and 2100 non alcoholic without taxes. For non alcoholic just water (200 roupies an hymalayan ) and 2 juices only possible .
The food was not exceptional.
Interesting as we received the pricing from the restaurant directly! Thanks for letting us know, will change it! And sorry to hear the food was not exceptional, hopefully once the renovation is complete it will improve!
