It remains the celebration restaurant of the city. The hallowed Zodiac Grill may not be as much the focal point of the city’s gliteratti as it was in its heyday, but it still has not met its match and continues to reign supreme for the past 22 years. So, if you want to splurge in style, then Zodiac is still your best bet. In the suffused elegance of this exclusive, wood-panelled, Taj restaurant, everything is designed to take you into rarified stratospheres of gastronomic bliss (with prices to match). Everything is designer here... from the large blue dome with twinkling stars, especially designed Bernadaud crockery, Christoffle cutlery to the Reidel glassware. New Zealand Oysters, French Goose Liver, Fresh Enoki, the finest Caviar… all meticulously chosen and stylishly presented. Grand corporate chef Hemant Oberoi is constantly in creative mode and introduces exotic and creative new dishes. He is constantly creating and changing menus, coaxing flavours out of classical dishes and express in contemporary terms! Be it Wasabi-lacquered Scallops or or Seabass sparkled with Robusta coffee Sunflower seeds and Edamame Ravioli and more grilled Dutch Asparagus, Asparagus Shavings, Aspraragus Ravioli with Thyme and Organic Compote, Alsace Foie Gras and Sour-dough Bread Pudding. His menus keep changing, and through them all, my all-time favourite remains the airy, silken Cheese Soufflé, the Camembert Dariole and the Kahlua Mousse. Both are as seductive and sinfully rich as ever! Enjoy the fine details of the sorbets punctuating the meal, celebration cocktails and Petit Fours. Check out the seven-course Degustation Menu (Veg: Rs. 6,000, Non-veg: Rs. 7,000), which is great value, considering that appetizers average at Rs. 2,500 and mains at Rs. 3,500 each. Fixed three-course lunch (Rs. 3,500 all inclusive and Rs. 6,500 per couple all inclusive) too. Closed for Sunday lunch. The wine list, as impressive as ever, lists choicest liqueurs and cognacs!

The Continental food of The Zodiac Grill is very much well known and I just can not resist the food of this place. The non veg and their varieties are too good in here and to be very specific do try their New Zealand Oyster and Dutch Asparagus. The seven course menu is packed with so many dishes and side dishes that it is more than enough for one person. Couple can have a great time in the relaxing interior of The Zodiac Grill.

Zodiac Grill is a perfect place in the entire Mumbai. I love visiting and having fun to this place. Elegant, classy and opulent ambiance certainly attracts a huge crowd here. Delicious and delectable food items. I love their silken cheese soufflé, kahlua mousse, French Goose Liver, Fresh Enoki and Caviar. Food is amazing and perfectly cooked with perfect spice and oil. You just can’t stop yourself from having any of the food from here. Service is cordial and gracious. Staffs are well-mannered and polite. They are at the service all the time and properly dressed. I love visiting here. The place has a unique class and really soothing place.
