Agreed it's so everywhere during the weekends but the service person was either not experienced or new God knows what! Especially if you order veg food it will take ages before u get... More

Have been to Ponnusamy multiple times in the last 10 years. Never have been dissatisfied once. I always try there Chettinad chicken biryani which is simply delicious.

This place specializes in chettinad and predominantly tamil cuisine. The non-veg thali and the chettinad dishes are the best. Try the "sura-puttu" and the rabbit masala that is the specialty there. Clean and family friendly place.

This restaurant offers plenty of options for chettinad cuisine for both lunch and dinner. Right from briyani to side dishes like chicken 65, suraputtu, brain fry and others. It also offers north Indian dishes, but the south Indian chettinad varieties are the best!!

The menu card is quiet mouth watering but not the actual foods. Most on the menu is not available even on a weekend. The crab that was served was old and iced. The pepper mutton soup tasted like Chinese tomyum. The service was quick but order misplaced. The ambience was good but the toilet stinks. Certainly not a place to... More
