Service and food were hard to beat and represented 5 star dining at it's best. Scallops and soft shell crab were standouts. Wine list exceptional and staff responsive to every request. Room decor was very pleasing as well. In all it was perfect, I am sure that other restaurants locally also serve similar southern indian food but you can trust... More

While I can go on about this place, the one thing that stands out is the Maha Virundhu, a stunning 35 course meal priced around Rs. 4000. We were a bunch of 8 of us on business who ended up wishing we did not ask for a repeat of any course, because, there are 35 and by the 28-29th dish,... More

We went with friends from the US and hence chose this over others. A great restaurant, with a good atmosphere. From the moment, our wait person ( clad in a ready made panchakachcham Veshti) greeted us, I felt it was going to be a great experience. He took pains to explain what the different items were and which would suit... More

This is one of my favorites in Chennai. They serve food from diff regions of South India - Kerela , Andhra and Tamil Nadu. Recommended specially if you would want to try the non vegetarian options. Definitely try the aapams and Malabar Parottas with your entries. Service meets the high standards as well

Had the pleasure of taking my family today. Nice ambiance. The food choices were great. The preparation was perfect, coupled with very courteous serving staff, they were very pleasant and it took our experience few notches up. Possibly the best place in Chennai to eat very good South Indian food.
