    2 more images

    There is only ONE way of having breakfast, lunch, dinner in the Taj Ganj quarter:

    You just have to take it on one of the trillions of rooftops, for this view over the TAJ MAHAL! Everything else would be a crime! Everything goes here with the Taj, and who wants to miss that?
    Whatever your meal might be, it tastes waaaaaaaay better with a look on the Taj!

    Yash Cafe: Relaxed atmosphere

    by Willettsworld Written May 21, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place was right next door to where I was spending my first night in Agra. The restaurant cum cafe has a relaxed atmosphere with wicker seats on an open terrace that overlooks the street below. Food was pretty good but the place didn't seem all that popular.

    Us eating at the Shanti Lodge


    This is a fabulous budget restaurant with a fantastic view of the Taj Mahal.
    The food here is great, the service is good and the menu is diverse.


    Favorite Dish:
    Offering local Indian cusine, with as always in India a huge Vegetarian selection. We ate here for four nights in a row! They serve breakfast, Lunch and dinner and if you sit up here in day you can see all of the monkeys on the surrounding rooftops.
    As we were staying here we could also eat in our room if we wanted to.

    Quite a few of them - Beware: Delhi - Agra Lousy Truck Stops

    by XKuger Written Apr 3, 2007

    Note that the there are quite a few Road side restaurents with Fancy names from the Highway between Delhi And Agra.

    They are typically built to server large tour groups specially foreign tourists. Many of the car/bus drivers steer you to these restaurents for Lunch/Tea depnding on the time of the day that you are travelling to Delhi/Agra.

    They are very high priced with very lousy food. They only target foreign tourists and the prices are well priced over the locals. You will not see any locals eat there, they can quite easily bill you 5US$ + for two slices of bread and 2 eggs.

    Their prices are sometimes well above Indian 4 star hotel rates. The food is very lousy and the mark up is well beyond 200% of any other restaurents.

    I paid approx 20 US$ for two sandwiches and two milk shakes which is high even by New York standards.

    They even wanted to charge be Rs.40 for a bottle of water that only costs 10 or 12 RS. This is a 30%+ markup.

    Favorite Dish: My suggestion Carry your food from Delhi, if you stop by one of the Sandwich shops like Barista / Subway they can pack some good clean stuff for half the price.

    Don't get scammed as well as sick in these high priced restaurents on the Delhi/Agra Highway.

    Only: Fairly Good

    by XKuger Written Apr 3, 2007

    My Guide to the Taj said that this was the best restaurent in town. I had a snack there as I had a late breakfast and was not too hungry. I found the food to be fairly good.

    Favorite Dish: I just had vegetable cutlets and a veg burger which was quite nice.

    Dasaprakash: a bit more expensive but good and classy

    by gonzo747 Written Mar 6, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is upstairs in the Meher cinema complex. It's a very fancy place.
    The prices are a bit higher than budget restaurants but the service is good and there is some luxury.
    I had a thali over there. They ask you if you want it spicy, medium spicy or not spicy.
    They are specialised in South indian food.

    Maya Hotel and Restaurant: Pleasant Rooftop Dining

    by tayloretc Written Mar 5, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has shady rooftop dining and an A/C dining room downstairs. The food is good, the prices seemed reasonable for what you get, and the service is low-key and pleasant. Some of the dining tables on the roof are low oriental style, with cushions. It’s a stretch to say the view of the Taj Mahal qualifies as a view, since even after climbing two additional flights you still only get the view in the second photo, but it’s a nice place to end the day.

    We didn’t stay at the hotel, but there are rooms. I saw one of them, it was cozy and colorful, although a bit run down. The business card lists laundry, Internet, ticketing, and transportation services, and something called a “Dream House Dormitory.”

    Largely Persian Cuisine

    by keeweechic Written Nov 28, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Agra’s cuisine is largely Persian influenced and can be rich with its curd-based and cream sauces. The city is apparently well known for sweets treats such as ‘Gazak’ and
    Petha'. There is also a popular saltish snack called Dalmoth.

    There is informal dining with the poolside brasserie and bar. There is also a restaurant which offers a very generous buffet with a choice of both Indian and Continental cuisines. The breakfast buffet is very good, plenty of choices with both Western and Indian dishes, fresh fruit and cereals.

    Karma beer: Do something for your Karma!

    Do something good for your KARMA

    When in Rome - do it as the Romans do!
    So stick to the local stuff! On my daily search for the best Indian beer, I found this funny-named KARMA beer. So you drink it AND do something good for your Karma at the same time, or what ?!?

    PIZZA HUT: I did not see any other restaurant to eat.

    by labaronesa Written Jan 16, 2006

    Indian food is very tasty but very spicy and my family and I are not use to it. At restaurants I asked them is it spicy? they would say "only a little bit" that means I will feel smoke coming out of my ears. We decided to eat here at Pizza Hut and the restaurant looked clean. I saw many restaurants in Agra but they did not look clean. In addition to this, I went to Agra for just one day and I did not want to spend to much time looking for a restaurant so we landed in Pizza Hut.

    Favorite Dish: Vegetarian Pizza was good and the rest of the Pizzas were really good.

    McDonalds: Great Stop to Taj

    by bradbeaman Written Jan 13, 2006
    Agra McDonalds

    This is a great McDonalds for the kids. It is 150 kilometers from Delhi and 50 Kilometers still to go to Agra. Look around McDonalds because you will see most of these same people at the Taj and some of these same people when you stop here on the return trip to Delhi.

    The little train ride for the kids next to McDonalds is worth the 10 rupees.

    Favorite Dish: McChicken, because the Maharaja Burger is too spicy for me.

    Favorite Dish: nimbu pani or fresh lemonade, added with ice cubes and do not forget to say "cheeni" [sweet] or you can have salty nimbu pani :)
    well, during my trip in India, the thing i don't want to have is tummy upsets. that's why i do care about the location of pedestrian and hawkers stalls. and whenever i found it's clean, hmmm >> let's go babe ;)
