The restaurant is set on the ground floor of a beautifully converted house, surrounded by a lush garden, with the upper floor selling clothes, jewellery and books. You have the choice of sitting out in the warm veranda or inside in the air conditioned enclosure. We opted for the latter and ordered lunch for two. The service was attentive and... More

This truly is a hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of Chennai. Set within a lovely, cool and green garden is this wonderful treasure trove. On the ground floor is the cafe and florist, and the upper floor houses exquisite clothes and jewellery. In the space of a couple of days, I had a leisurely afternoon tea and a... More

Well well this place and me have been associated for almost 10 years. I used live in chennai and this was a place that all out friends love to hang out at. The place is calm and serene as opposite to hectic noisy city life right in the Middle of the city. The restaurant itself serves the best coffee and... More

My daughter and I enjoyed Amethyst more as a coffee house than a restaurant. We did have lunch there (sandwich, pita bread and hummus) but really we just wanted to hang out for a few hours in comfy surroundings. We were never pressured to order more food or move on. The room is nicely furnished and the surrounding gardens are... More

Me and Amethyst Cafe have had an on and off relationship for a couple of years even before they moved in to Whites Road from their original spot in Gopalapuram. This place is more a hidden gem that has been hiding right in front of our eyes. There are still a lot of people who haven't got the slightest clue... More

Enjoy a good movie at Sathyam complex and move over to Amethyst for a great meal. Choose from Heavy snacks to a great meal from Cuisine of your choice. The ambience and food makes for a very pleasant outing. Can be a trifle expensive though!!!

Amethyst is now located on Whites Road, Next To Corporation Bank, Royapettah in Chennai and is quite a secluded wonder of wonders away from the hot, humid and crazy rush of the city..It's like escaping the urban jungle and stepping into a lush green landscape of flowers, greenery, water and other elements of nature with a huge colonial styled bungalow...
