If you want to taste different non-vegetarian foods from south india, I would recommend this hotel. The hotel setup is not upscale or look like a premium restaurant. But the food is top class. One can get speciality foods of various parts of Tamilnadu at this place. If you are a food lover, this is a must place to try.

I first visited their branch near ethiraj college & fell in love with it. The Non veg is to die for. Be it the chicken masala or Mutton, it is out of the world. Extremely spicy as the cuisine is, it gives you the real local taste. I could go on eating here & never get tired of it,

Biriyani is also is available but if you go late after 10-00 p.m you it may get exausted. Both... More

If you are in Chennai and looking for local cuisine then this is the place to visit. Tough its a little crowded but worth the compromise.

We walked into their branch in pondicherry and was in for a shock. The waiter was insisting we order a starter, when we declined all his suggestions, he forced us to order the special of the day - "chicken balls" Firstly the "starter" was served after our lunch was almost over and then the dish arrived with all 15 pieces...

Ok now, whether you're a first time traveler to India or a native of India and looking for a true Chettinaud cuisine, this is it!!! My favorite is the biriyani and mutton chukka. You can also try different types of chicken dishes, fried meat balls are great as well.

We always eat here whenever we're in chennai. Food delicious without any change in taste every time we eat. Chicken 65 is best. Biryani, egg & mutton tasty too! Not spicy. One setback is the wash basin which seems to be dirty always. No cleaning done to the washing area. Good that the wash area is outside the dining area.... More
