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.
This is first such South Indian Resturant in the Town very neat and Clean good service. Excellent dosa masalas! Very pleasant atmosphere and free refills on the sambar and dosa filling. If you are in Agra, you should try this place.
Favorite Dish: South Indian Thali Rs 110
Dosa Masala Rs 80 - very fresh and the coconut chutney was perfect.

At Hotel Sheela there is a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can have both Indian food or western food like pasta. It is a nice relaxing place to sit in, but the bad thing with the restaurant is that there is no roof over the outdoor area to protect you from rain, and inside the air condition is too cold. To me it looked nicer in old photos when there was no air-conditioned indoor area.
I was disappointed that there were no fresh fruit juices on the menu. This is what I paid for a few things in July 2010:
Black coffee Rs 20
Butter toast (two pieces) Rs 20
Omelette (two eggs) Rs 40
Spaghetti with tomato sauce Rs 90
Soft drinks Rs 20
Chicken Sandwich (small, only two pieces of bread) Rs 80
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 ;)
The restaurant was clean and the service good. We wanted our driver to eat with us, and realised why he refused, as most of the clientele were tourists and Indian families or businessmen.
Favorite Dish: The food was excellent. I ordered sweet corn soup which was very tasty for 110 rupees, Melai kofta [potato dumplings] which were delicious for 320 rupees. My husband had Kadai mushroom for 315 rupees, also very good.
The place has a Hawaiian feel to it because of the bamboo and palm decor. It was packed with tourists from buses but as I was dining alone i was able to get a seat. This place was recommended by my guide book.
Favorite Dish: I had a nice creamy chicken massala, nan bread and Kingfisher Beer -- all good.
There are several restaurants and hotels in the Taj Ganj area with a rooftop restaurant. Some have a good view over Taj Mahal, others doesn’t. One of the best views is from Saniya Palace Restaurant and it was also one of the most popular ones. As it can be very hot in Agra it is nice to sit on a rooftop in the evening and feel the breeze, overlooking Taj Mahal and maybe a few kites flying in the air.
There were quite many flies on the table cloths though!
I came here for dinner twice and service was good. This is what I paid in July 2010:
Lemon soda Rs 20
Plain nan Rs 20
Navratan korma Rs 120
Malai Kofta Rs 110
The restaurants at Agra serve delicious, mouth watering Mogul Non veg dishes. One should not miss it. The food given at the hotel you are staying in may not satisfy your palate. So go for these restaurants and hope for a never forgetting eating experience.
Favorite Dish: All the Mogul non veg dishes are great especially the chicken dishes. You could go for Tandoori Chicken (Roasted chicken), Chicken curry, or Kadhai chicken and for Mutton they have Mutton Afghani, mutton rogan josh and barbecue.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
The rough guide described it as the only place worth going to near the Taj, and it was good.
Just outside on the left by the East Gate, the only place that did not have people outside trying to drag you in
Food was better than the other places we had had in town and a lot cheaper, i liked it
I was pleasantly surprised to see such an awesome restaurant in Agra, much exceeded my expectations. Agra is my native place and I've been travelling to agra almost everytime I go to India, although my folks have moved out of the area.
I know of many places to eat in agra, but when someone mentioned to me about this restaurant, I wanted to visit it, and try for myself. Being a vegetarian, it was a delight.
They had it all, Indian Chinese, Continental, Gujrati, Rajasthani, Mughali alongwith Indian a wide variety of Indian Snacks, and a beautiful array of Indian Sweets, deserts and more... Although I could not feast on all items (the counter boy said they make some 700+ items in a year) as the range was HUGE, but the four things I tasted, I thoroughly enjoyed. In the midst of a hot season in Agra, this fully air conditioned restaurant with something for all age group is a recommendation I'd make.
Favorite Dish: Pao Bhaji
Other items I would have love to eat (although I ran out of tummy space)
and some bengali sweets alongwith Badam Milk
We were glad to be suggested this restaurant other than our hotel's, so we gave it a try.
The quality of food was just outstanding & the service is also good.There is a puppet show going on for entertaining the clients which is free of cost.I just love the whole things which are going on.
Favorite Dish: Shan-E-Priya
In my opinion it is the pride of Priya.It is a complete package for 4 persons.The way it is served that was amazing.
