I tried out this place after reading numerous reviews and it held up to its reputation. The portions were very generous (double the usual quantity) and the taste was like home cooked food - not very spicy or oily. The staff there are friendly and recommend food choices if you tell them what is that you are looking for. I... More

The ambience is good and so is the food but the tables and the plates aren't so clean and they took a lot of time to bring the food.

If you have a craze for chinese food and are a vegetarian, try Flower drum. Excellent menu and food taste! Beware, the quantity is too much for one person and waiting time for seats is also high. Service is also excellent.

Only place in chennai for good quality chinese food . The portions are generous , tasty but a bit oily . The lighting is too dim needs to be a bit more bright . A dedicated wash area for the restaurant would be appreciated .

They also serve some interesting desserts.if you are looking to visit a chinese joint do try this once. One big negative is that it's located in prince plaza which is not a... More

Flower Drum serves delicious chinese food. Service is slow, and food little expensive. But they give more quantity which two persons can share easily. If you can reach before 8 pm, you can get a table quickly. Avoid Sundays as the rush is more. It is on 2nd floor. You can complete some shopping and go. This bldg houses mostly... More
