This is a lovely tranquil oasis in the busy city. The restaurant is well set out with tables on the veranda and outside. The service was Ok but we ordered a salad which was tasteless and the lettuce had not been washed properly so was covered in sand and grit. Spoilt the experience - we had read great reviews and...

The ambiance was fantastic. The tropical surroundings give you a respite from the city. The cafe is quaint with good food. There is a well curated designer store and a lovely flower shop on the premises. Make sure to ask for the soup of the day. Skip the pizza, but order the pasta and the salad. Portion sizes are good.

A great little retreat in Chennai...lovely atmosphere and very relaxing. Seems very popular. Cafe is excellent. Just nice to get away from the noise and sit in peaceful gardens. Food is very good. Salads are refreshing and you can get a wide selection of cakes and pastries from their bakery counter. Would recommend.

Amethyst is among the finest cafes in Chennai outside of five star hotels. Very good food, good presentation, superb ambience and moderately expensive prices make this place a must visit. Their soups, salads and pasta are top class.
