The Aravali Pavilion at ITC Grand Bharat is the retreat’s charming bistro and three-meal period restaurant. The warm interiors with its murals and cork floors are home to unique culinary concepts such as ‘Swasthya’ cuisine; eating for health and taste, the debut of ‘Modern India Mosaics’ and ITC Hotels’ Signature Mornings, ‘Best of Pavilion’, ‘The Express Wok’ and ‘Local Love’. Beautifully decorated entryway and one of the best restaurant in India. I had an excellent and royal feel having lunch. The staff was very courteous, and all the food options were fascinating.

The best part of this is that the food can be customized to your choice.SIGNATURE CREATIONS: Swasthya Cuisine, Local Love, The Express Wok. Avg. Meal for 2: Rs.2500
