I didn’t like the food at all .. only breakfast is good .. but the rest is not good because of that everyday we have to get food from outside .. and one more thing right now we are in very thought situations where food and safety is very important, one day we are travelling to Allahabad 10 in the morning and Allahabad is place where there is no proper food place so we asked for some takeaway breakfast as complimentary and they denied absolutely where i didn’t see any human thing .. this is my second visit to taj Varanasi , they want me to buy the breakfast whatever i want .. which i felt useless and waste of money
