“A Good Vegetarian Restaurant in Heart Of City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Mathura is a restaurant serving only vegetarian fare at a modeate price.They serve jain cusine also if need be.The place is spacious and is mostly crowded unless and until you visit early or have reservations.It is ideal if you are a couple or a party of Twenty Five.The decor is lavish and we settled for a Thali( A Lunch with limited quantity of various dishes).It was fabulous.If you are particular you can choose from Their Ala Carte Menu.They are open only for Lunch and Dinner.Needless to say Alcohol is ataboo here.
The Service is Quick and waiters are courteous.

“The Madras restaurant (it's not Chennai)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Like they say, Chennai is a city n Madras is an emotion. This place located in older Madras, true to it's name, serves an exceptionally good south Indian meal with around 25 varieties adorning your plate. They do serve North Indian n Jain food thats on par with the southern counterpart. If you are a bachelor working in Chennai n suddenly your parents drop in to suprise you, suprise them in return n take them to this place for an exceptionally sumptuous meal. It's the kind of place that is decorated elaborately with huge chandeliers n wood adorned pillars and definitely takes you back in time, no wonder it's from the Woodlands group. This place is definitely for the silver haired grandpas n silk cladden mamis who get together for a elaborate lunch.

“Authentic South Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Recently I went to Mathura for the second time. Though the name does sound North India, the decor of the restaurant hardly gives a hint of being any where near it. The moment you enter it, you feel welcome to a big gathering comprising of people from all walks of life. You will find families, couples and individuals, all enjoying food.
The Menu is spread out with good amount of delicacies (though there was no Rawa Kesari). The food is delicious served by courteous staff.

“Friendly Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is our favourite restaurant and the best for family and friend gatherings. We a bunch of around 10 got to sit together and had our best get together. It was like a party sort of gathering for us and the restaurant provided a good ambience for the same. The food was excellent both South/North Indian Meals and Tandoori items. They were very courteous that when our toddler spilled the pepper in the soup, they replaced with new one at no extra cost. The food came to the table in a very quick time with not much of waiting. The waiters were also enjoying with us with keeping our toddlers busy so that we could finish our lunch. Their suggestions for variety of food helped us to enjoy different variety of food.

“Typical Tamilnadu Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

One of my favourites in Chennai. Especially the lunch. Hot, tasty and with variety. Even the snacks served in the evening are good. Lunch with family or colleagues, this is a very good place. Definitely worth waiting to get your seat as the restaurant is always crowded.
