“GOOD FOOD, POOR AMBIANCE,PATCHY SERVICE”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We ate here twice as the food was excellent and was reasonably priced.The restaurant has a
poor atmosphere ,like the hotel above: lots of brown plastic furniture and poor lighting.
Service the 1st night was OK if a bit rushed. Night 2 was very disorganised with mains arriving before the starter and the drinks forgotten.The manager noticed and sorted it out.
Food is served on cut banana leaves.The 1st night they were dry but the second night they were still wet.We had been very careful about water in India, always bottled water,but we took a chance.We really paid for it 3 hours later! We both had violent diarrhoea. So insist on dry leaves!

“Best place in Trichy for Chettinad food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

I have been frequent visitor to this restaurant. Located very close to Madurai to Chennai high way. Very tasty food. Even though this restaurant is famous for non vegeterian food, I tried vegeterian food which was also good. Do not miss kannapa chicken which is bonless with mild spices. You may have to tell them to use less oil if you are worried about calories.

“Just OK restaurant for Veggie lovers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Ambiance: OK
Cleanliness: horrible
Service: traditional, just about OK
Food: for veggie lovers: its a disappointment: for the food tastes neither chettinadu nor even authentic veg fare. Just manageable for one lunch or a dinner.
Guess its more famous for its non-veg fare given the patronage it has from the locals on weekends to takeaway the dishes
Overall: just OK; could be avoidable
Alternatives: plenty are available, specially Saraswati Cafe or Vasanth Bahavan for authentic simple fresh delicious veg food in Trichy.

“Trichy's best Non-Veg Meal Stop-over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Traveling to Chennai from Madurai or South Tamilnadu, the perfect place to eat, and if you have the time and if you are not driving a short quick visit to the Bar above will add some spirits to you journey.

The food is great and toilets clean for a stop over during the long journey.
