The restaurant is located outside, from the lobby it is another three minutes walk.  The restaurant was elegant and charming, felt very exotic with the fire decorations around the restaurant.  Despite being so beautiful, there were only two tables occupied by diners.  Although it was very humid and hot, those big fans really cooled me down.  We were then attacked by an army of mosquitos even though the staffs were incredibly attentive and lighted up three mosquito repellent incense near our table, it did not help.  There were swarms of them, so one of the staff offered to transfer us to the inside buffet restaurant, MoMo Cafe, he was so polite and attentive, so we accepted the offer

MoMo Cafe is a buffet restaurant located inside the hotel.  There was aircon and no mosquitos which we were very satisfied, however please note, not all diners can sit inside and order from the Anise menu.  We were very lucky to be offered with this opportunity, made our dining experience a whole lot better.  So thank you so much Azhas, you was a star.  When he found out we were travelling to Jaipur next, he even warned us from scams in souvenir shops and recommended us to visit the local market and taught us how to haggle.

All the dishes came in their own little pot, even the roti.  Once it arrives, the staff will immediately serve it to us and I literally mean spooning everything onto our plates.  We did not have to move one finger.  The Tandoori Kukkad  was my favourite, the  chicken is first put on a skewer then places inside this pot and cooked inside the oven.  It was my first time having this dish but it really blew my mind.  It came steaming hot with steam coming out from the pot on our table.  The chicken was well marinated with lots of herb , I could taste black pepper, cinnamon, smoked paprika,  garlic, coriander etc.  The complimentary yogurt sauce matched the chicken so well. The chicken korma was also another of my favorite, although it only came in a small pot.  The portion might seems small but definately enough for four people.  The korma was the right consistency, perfect for dipping my naan or having it with my rice. I cannot take spicy food but the level of spiciness was bearable and extremely delicious.  The food were all high standard even though I know this isn’t a top hotel’s restaurant in Agra, I would recommend this place for anyone in Agra.

Would I go back again? Yes
