Peace in the midst of the blaring sounds of the city.

If you want to sit back relax and have a meal in the midst of the hussle and bussle of the city, this is the place, great ambience in between a garden totally avoiding the paa and pee sounds of the horns which blare on the roads. You get some good food, but service is at its pace, since its... read more

Go here if like continental food and just want to have a nice relaxing time eating it. Lush green gardens and tranquil atmosphere adds to your experience. But It leaves a hole in your for sure!

If one is a lover of nature and greenery then this place strikes you as soon as you enter it reminds you of Malaysia with the trees and green foliage and when you enter the porch,verandah and the small hall the atmosphere reminds you of the bygone British Era and more of a club where one can sit and chat...

Clearly in the nature of a coffee house , the food is average , the prices expensive , but the ambience is sterling . Go when you want to wind down, and feel indulged, and indulge in slow life. Don't go for the food... Too bland, too unseasoned ....indian palate needs its spice kick

I heard it was a well known cafe. The prices and the ambiance also suggested it to be a cafe worth the Taste! Cafe's like this generally pay a lot of attention to details but I was really saddened to note that the piece of chocolate they served me with my Cappuccino contained EGG. Ingredients like Egg, etc to which... More

This place is more like a comfort place for me and friends..with great food, great service and of course a lovely ambiance (sitting without air conditioning in Chennai summers is a miserable experience). Try the combo lunches in the afternoons or the other great cuisine at any time.... you will never be disappointed.

I have been recommended by my friend to visit this place in Chennai. I am living in Chennai for decade and only when I parked my car in Amethyst I found that I have missed one of the pleasant identity of Chennai amidst bustling city just on the way to Satyam Cinemas parking from Express Avenue mall in Royapet....

This is a special place to visit. The garments, jewellery and curios available here are exclusive and hip. The place has a wonderful garden and its always a pleasure to visit them. The cafe is cool and a great place to relax. The florist here is by far the best in Chennai. A must visit place for visitors.

As you walk in to the cafe, you're greeted by greenery everywhere. The cafe is absolutely stunning with marble table tops and antique chairs which give it an old-world charm. It's best to visit the place in the evening and sit outside. The ambiance is perfect for catching up with friends or sitting alone with a good book. The quality... More

Really enjoyed my meal at Amethyst with the smoked salmon sandwich and bread and butter pudding spot on. The ambience is great too in a garden setting. The boutique on the first floor had lovely stuff but but very pricey so I just window-shopped there. Worth doing when in Chennai ...
