Food and drinks are amazing here. This is a must visit place in Chennai for its music, food and cocktails. Love it and will always visit... More

Food menu also covers good range of cuisines. It was a Saturday night and they had live music. Pretty awesome singers and music. Crowd started dancing in a while in... More

Great place to chill with friends. We sat at the bar counter where the service was top class. Cheese garlic bread & Red snapper with cilantro that we ordered were really good. The music however was a bit too loud for my liking. The restaurant has one big hall with rows of tables arranged not very tastefully. Not my cup... More

This place had been on my list way too long. I made sure I went here, on my trip to Chennai last month, no matter what. My husband ordered the pork chops and I tried their combo meal which I thought was a really good deal. They serve up a soup/salad, cocktail/mocktail, a starter, main and dessert, all for a... More

Yes its noisy with music and people talking and especially when the music is loud, people also tend to be louder. Food is tapas and you get some great combos, its a pub and a few regulations like you need to wear a shoe, if by chance forgotten then they do provide you with one,. Good people to look around,...
