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

Kipling Cafe was one of those names that I frequently saw in Zomato as well as in other social networking sites. After sensing all the positive vibe it received I was eager to try this place out. A boring saturday evening with a friend which started as a long drive down the ECR ended with a trip to Kipling Cafe.... More

Bumpy road to get there off East Coast Road in Chennai, but once there one would enjoy their experience. With a multinational cuisine and if you are in a group of 5 to 6 it would be worthwhile to try the various cuisines available a portion each. A bit expensive and the service slow, however if you are there for... More

We had a bit of a problem reaching Kiplings but, once we reached, we feltit was worth the trouble getting there. The place is brilliantly located close to the sea where you sit in little eco friendly huts with the cool breeze creating a relaxed atmosphere. The menu, with Continental, Indian, Italian and Thai is extensive and they serve beef... More

A very good place to celebrate a special occasion with your special one.Very romantic place which will be memorable for you and your partner. Highly recommended for a couple for a candle light. High on pocket. Full credits for the ambience.

We have been to Kipling a number of times in the past and we are regularly impressed by the setting, ambience and food. However, on this occasion we actually left before any food was even served. Having decided to treat my mother for Mothers Day we booked in advance to eat in the Italian part of the restaurant, Firenze. First... More
