Amaaaazzzzing Food n Ambience

Amethyst has always been our (my hubby n I) favorite place to relax and catch up. It has the most beautiful ambience with greenery all around. The service is good and the food is amazing. You gotta try this place at least once and I'm sure you'll keep going back.

After having been in cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore and now Chennai first few months Chennai got me absolutely disappointed of the fact that there were no quality outdoor restaurant and then came Amethyst which happened by chance while googling for a cafe style outing. It's a exclusive cafe tucked in opposite Sathyam Cinema, has abundant parking, lush and green... More

Amethyst is something unexpected, a real gem. The garden restaurant has a nice international menu and we really enjoyed ourselves on the nice 'colonial feel' veranda. Food was nice, great fresh juices and good service.

Great ambience and a unique menu makes this place a must visit cafe / restaurant. Indoor and out door seating options are available - both are great! Food quality and flavour is excellent. It is expensive, but delivers value.

As the title says Amethyst is a STUNNING location. For anyways visiting Chennai, this has to be on the list. Great to get a cup of coffee and enjoy the beautiful ambience. I will warn you though, like in a lot of cafe's, service is slow. So dont go here if you're in a rush, or super hungry.

Amethyst is a quiet oasis in the centre of Chennai. The cafe has a beautiful garden and lily pond. One can relax and read a book for hours on end here. The pastries are delicious and I highly recommend them. The breakfast is also quite good. On the first floor there are some retail outlets selling lovely but slightly overpriced... More

Actually, we were going quite often to this cafe / restaurant because the ambience is good (located within a nice garden) and the served food is really good and for that reasonably good priced. But, unfortunately, some of the staff is definitely not giving you the feeling of hospitality what that cosy place is actually introducing. Sure, they do their... More

From the photography exhibit at the enterance the lush green forest environment and the cosy sitting outside in the sun just added to the most amazing menu the team put up. Everything from the burger , bangers , keish , risotto and the yum... More

I really enjoyed making Amethyst cafe one of the first stops in my trip to Chennai. I actually walked to get there and it was worth it. It's beautiful place tucked away from the noisy, bustling streets. You come in through the parking lot and the gate awaits. Walk in and you're suddenly in a tropical forest. Tucked away into...
