Sparky's WAS a great place to eat. We ate there several times. They made a great effort to have all kinds of foods. UNFORTUNATELY the owner died last year and his family left India. Closed permanently. So sad.

Knew about this place a long time, but un-fortunately started visiting it just a couple of years before it closed down. The Guys there kept it lively for us and I visited it many times with family and friends. We all miss this place and it will have a special place in our hearts.

The founder, manager and head chef of Sparky's, Thom Petty died in December 2011. The restaurant closed not long after that. I have heard that there is almost zero chance that Sparky's will ever reopen. It was a fun restaurant with interesting and original decorations, good music, nice capable employees and great food. There were plenty of loyal customers and... More

Was probably one of, if not THE best Authentic American restaurants in Chennai. Brilliant food, Excellent service and nice prices with a lot of 'Theme days'. Unfortunately, shut down as the owners moved back to the US in late 2011.

The ambience here should please ex pats: walls are decorated with registration plates, football and baseball mementos, and American rock n roll plays nonstop. The food is good, even if a few dishes were a liitle overcooked and dry. We particularly enjoyed the fried zucchini (courgette to Europeans). The country fried chicken, a Tradition from my native South with a... More

Truly American in every way... From the menu to the USA souvenirs that decorate everywhere you look! Sparky's must be the only place in India where you ask for tea and they serve a huge red diner-style glass of good ole' Southern iced sweet tea... with free refills! My husband and I were missing the USA after months in India...... More
