Good Food.

Nice setting. Nice Theme and the food is great. Though the place is quite old. It still is a favourite among the chennaites. Friendly staff and chefs.

I had seen this place from outside and wanted to visit it post good reviews from many of my friends. At last got my chance on the occasion of my anniversary and I stood vindicated for my choice. I was given a lawn seating, candle lighted and very good atmosphere. The place was very relaxing. Only low point in the... More

I visited this place with a couple of friends. At the get go, I'd like to say that the food was good. That was not the let down. It was the experience. The staff wouldn't let us sit inside if we wanted ala carte. They said we could only eat out in the garden. It really isn't fun when you... More

Last week end we went to this restaurant. It has both indoor and outdoor (open air restaurant) options. It's a good place to go with family & kids or friends. Above average food..Some starters are gud.. Desserts could be improved. We have to wait patiently for the food... little bit expensive... Now tree top bamboo huts are under servicing.

This restaurant is located at the beginning of ECR, before VGP golden beach. It is a decent spacious joint which has both indoor and outdoor seating options. The outdoor ones are pretty spacious and well spread out, providing you enough privacy -although during rainy/winter seasons, mosquitoes can be quite an irritant even though they have mosquito coils. Some of the... More

Good Tandoori Buffet in ECR, where else but in Basera. Te only problem is they do not have Live Tandoori Buffet outside. The ala carte is pretty costly, but tasty food.

Living on ECR, crossed Basera everyday but never got the chance to check it out.Paid them a visit last weekend. We were led inside and seated in a big table under the trees. This is a open air restaurant and being near the sea the breeze made it comfortable. The setting is nice and comfortable, although being near the sea... More

Living nearby, We have been to this restaurant many times. Our kids like the ambiance very much, especially the open seating and the elevated bamboo hut seating and the kids play area. The food here in our experience is good. After some experimenting we have arrived at a set of dishes that we like here. Our kids love the paneer... More
