"I will be back" said Arnie in his famous flick. Well, I said the same to Amethyst when I left. A colonial bungalow, elegantly turned into an idyllic place to pause, Amethyst will make you forget that you are at the heart of busy metropolitan. A generous lawn area that now offers fantastic outdoor option, besides the air-conditioned enclosure that... More

Very chilled out place, designed in a very unique way to give an "away from the city" feel right in the heart of the city, ample park space, good food, tad bit expensive... But worth the lovely setting - greenery n unique architecture for a restaurant in the city...

And... relax... Walk into the greenery of the Amethyst Cafe and you could almost believe you were out of the city. They've gone to a lot of trouble to plant the garden with a wide variety of trees and scrubs, so go, take a seat and relax with a coffee or something to eat. It's on the pricey side, but... More

This is the perfect hideaway, hangout i have discovered here. The ambience is amazing. True to it's name, it's a cafe in a garden :) The greenery tucked away next to busy White's road, lit up by lamps and dotted with marble topped tables in cosy nooks n corners makes for the ideal place to unwind at the end of...

The quaint garden, abundant trees and wonderful earthy decor beckons anyone looking for a getaway from the Chennai Chaos. The service is lovely and they have a dedicated smoking zone right at the...

We had a visiting couple from Mumbai & went out for dinner last weekend. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening at the garden resturant. The ambience is completely out of this world.The food too is absolutely wonderful! The price is a bit on the higher side but considering the overall experience one does not mind spending a little extra... More

We were trying to make a turn and get home but the traffic was too thick and so we had to follow the flow literally for a short while, when we decided to turnoff at Amethyst.... We decided to 'cool off' with a coffee after a hectic day of dedicated shopping. And Amethyst turned out to be a beautiful choice.... More

Apart from Cafe, they also have an Apparel and Flower Store 4. Pathetic Service with Over-Priced Menu and a Average Food 5. On top-of-it, they don't serve drinking Water, instead need to... More
