Fodor's Expert Review The Tea House
This restaurant inside the local Taj is as good a place to sample the distinct flavor of Indo-Chinese—which blends powerful Indian spices and delicate Chinese preparation—as you're likely to find outside of Mumbai proper. The menu features an excellent aray of teas (try the Darjeeling) and cocktails (their sweet but subtle Mojito is especially nice) and unlike most of the rest of the pack in Aurangabad, the atmosphere here is quiet and refined. While the small selection of main courses here tend to be either too salty or a bit underwhelming, the dim sum is superb, so we recommend sticking with that. Try the salt-and-pepper tofu, or the golden honey shrimp, paired with several of the excellent variety of dumplings on the restaurants expansive and delectable front-of-book menu.
