We wanted to go for a long ride on my bike and eat at a good place. We googled this place near the beach and got curious about it. Was a bit dissappointing to know that it did not have a view of the beach but the place in itself is so good that we enjoyed ourselves to the max.... More

The restaurant is located on ECR just the next left after shollinganallur checkpost. The approach road is pathetic and in a very poor condition. The restaurant is very upmarket with a very nice romantic ambience and intelligent seating arrangement which gives you privacy as well as easy access to everything which I liked very much. The staff are good, hospitable... More

Situated off the East Coast Road, very close to the Chennai toll gate. Kipling is a quiet restaurant where you can enjoy a Cabana style table in a beautiful garden just a few minutes walk from the ocean. I've been a fan for years- every time I drive down the East Coast Road I try and make a stop at... More

Located tucked away in ECR, the restaurant is a quaint and lovely place. The menu is elaborate and highly priced. The rates are at instances more than that at five star hotels in the city. However, the quality of the dishes served is very poor. The food lacks in flavour and taste and does not match up to any expectations.... More

Little hard to find, the first time around. Great ambience and the moist cool adds to the scent of the sea. Food is really good, though a bit on the higher side. If you are around that side, don't miss

Don't be put off by the incomplete road on the way to the entrance. It's worth the additional effort. I wasn't expecting a Thai - Italian menu, and normally decide the restaurant will be weak on both fronts. In this case. The Tom Yum soup was reasonable. The fish of the day was very good. And the mud cake is... More
