We went for a team dinner at the Salt while in Chennai. My local hosts recommended this place for its food and hospitality. The restaurant gets it name from its unique concept - rock salt collection from far and wide. Furthermore they serve food on Himalayan rock salt slabs. Pretty unique eh! Now to the basics Ambience - 4/5 The... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch before catching a movie @ Palazzo. Good food, although on the costlier side. Helpful staff and wonderful ambiance.

I enjoyed my dinner at the Salt Co. 531 restaurant. We were in a hurry and had literally an hour before I had to be at the airport. They expedited everything and delivered the food to us at an astonishingly fast rate. The items I enjoyed the most include the deep fried shrimp with honey sauce and the mash potatoes... More

I was taken to this restaurant by my Host who had suggested that this was different. It is on the ground floor of Radisson Blu hotel. Sitting ambience was good. There was a large crowd. The restaurant prepares food on mineral salt slabs procured from various exotic places around the world. They add no extra salt. The Chef first comes... More

Nice place for a drink or two. Attentive staff. The finger food provided with your drink is amazing and may easily replace a meal.

I am reading some negative comments here about this restaurant. The only reason I can think off is someone put them there mistakenly :) Some of the tastiest food I've ever had. Then there is food and a show, really impressive. You can never be wrong about this place. Every guest there had a smile on their face. Thank you... More

My wife and I dined here last night. The head chef was exceptional explaining the idea behind his salt creation. While we have dined here three times for a great breakfast, dinner is something else. We had the signature watermelon with cheese, served on a 3 inch frozen salt slab. You rub the melon on the slab,and the chef then... More

I am addicted to the Radisson at Chennai. I stayed here after two years and was surprised to see the new face of their sports bar - the one they call Salt.Co.531. The service is great as usual. They offered me the Draught Beer - on Day 1 it wasn't all that great by on Day 2 it was superb.... More
