    Restaurant at Hotel Sheela

    by MalenaN Written Nov 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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
    French fries

    Peshawri: Great restaurant in the ITC Mughal hotel

    by toonsarah Written Nov 29, 2015

    Great restaurant in the ITC Mughal hotel
    We were quite tired on the evening of our day in Agra, having been up since 4.30 AM to catch the train from Delhi, so we decided to eat in the hotel and to treat ourselves to dinner in Peshawri, the more upmarket Indian restaurant (as opposed to the multi-cuisine buffet restaurant). The food in Peshawri is all based around the tandoor oven, so there are a lot of kebab dishes and grills. We asked the waiter for advice and he recommended some dishes for us to share, including their "signature" dish, Murgh Makai Kabab - chicken pieces flavoured (I think marinated) in cream cheese, vinegar, green chilli and coriander before being grilled in the tandoor. This was absolutely delicious - succulent chicken pieces with a wonderful smoky flavour from the oven. There were six large pieces - plenty for the two of us to share. With these we had another recommended dish, Dal Bukahara, which was also very good, and some tandoori naan bread. We shared a large Kingfisher beer, and later had desserts - kulfi for Chris and a cardamom and pistachio flavoured Basmatii rice pudding for me - again, delicious.

    This isn't a cheap option by Indian standards, although we could easily pay more for a less good meal at home in London. Our bill came to a little under 6,000 IR including taxes - about £60. This was by some way the most we paid on this trip, but was worth the splurge.

    Next tip: a side trip to Fatehpur Sikri.

    Rooftop Restaurant at Saniya Palace Hotel

    by MalenaN Updated Dec 25, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    Directions: Saniya Palace Hotel is situated near South Gate, down an alley off the main street in Taj Ganj.

    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 ;)

    Motel Gangaur: on Agra-Jaipur road

    by uglyscot Written Dec 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: on Agra-jaipur road

    Directions: Uttar Pradesh state highway, about half way to Jaipur.

    Only: Great Grub

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

  • Don't Miss the Moghul Nonveg Food

    by raj_barara Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    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.”

    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.

    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.

    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

  • BIKANERVALA: WOW so much to offer at One place - Not to miss

    by businessdev Written Aug 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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
    Paani Puri
    Chole Bhatura
    Raj Kachori
    Kulfi Faluda

    Other items I would have love to eat (although I ran out of tummy space)
    Dal Makhani
    Masala Dosa
    Idli
    Dhokla

    and some bengali sweets alongwith Badam Milk

    Address: near Tulsi Cinema, Bye Pass Road, Agra

    Directions: ask for Bhagwan Talkies (Cinema/Theatre)
    Once there ask for tusli Talkies (Cinema/Theatre)
    Its in the middle of Tusli & Bhagwan Cinema.
