Had been there last weekend with my relatives. I am surprised to see the reputed hotel lose it standards in every department. Ordinary food, ordinary service and expensive menu by the standards maintained. There are certainly better options available in chennai for that budget.

The HSB as it is known is a killer for the purse. The breakfast was ostly as an In-flight meal. But people do flock here, when given no choice.

This is a chain of restaurant serving authentic South Indian vegeterian food. They are well spread all around Chennai, affordable. At time could be very crowded specially weekends and evening times.

Ambience is excellent at .A bit of Hindi is needed as in the heart of Chennai most of the waiters are from North India or Nepal and hence cannot speak Tamil. Their idlies are not good at all and bely the name but the sakkara pongal is damn good!
