This was my visit to the "Southern Spice" restaurant at Taj Coromandel with a very close friend and the reception we received by Elvis was very warm. While we waited for the service he was courteous enough to enlighten us on various interior designs and the efforts that had been taken to renovate the restaurant. We were then served by... More

I would without doubt suggest this place for anyone who wants to experience south Indian cuisine. Yes, it is expensive, but the quality and service compromises the extra dimes you spend for the meal. The staffs are prompt and well trained. The waiter was humble enough to explain the items in the menu, the way it's cooked and also our... More

This store has one of the best authentic South Indian dishes in Chennai, especially in the Southern part. It is situated near a busy street with loads of customers, but I have not eaten at the restaurant directly but have always ordered their service delivery for lunch and dinner when I stayed nearby. The prices are reasonable and portions are... More

I have always thought of South Indian cooking as "comfort food," but Southern Spice shows off its glamorous side. We ordered one of the tasting menus, which I highly recommend to sample a range of regional dishes. This is a perfect restaurant for date night or to bring friends or colleagues who are visiting Chennai. Bring an adventurous palate and... More
