    I would like to find out a few things about the Taj Palace in New Delhi. The first question I have is about the location of the hotel, I would like to know what the location is like and what like of places it is near to.

    The other question I have is the food which they serve inside the hotel. I will be bringing my nephew with me one day during my stay at the hotel, and he is a fussy eater so I would like to know what dining options they have.
