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

I had visited Salt Co 531 for breakfast. Being in Chennai, I tried only the south Indian options. Very disappointed with the overall quality of food. The Medu vada was so hard - I couldn't cut it with the knife. The three chutnies on offer were very ordinary, sambar and idlies were ok. Masala dosa was avoidable. The filter coffee... More

We stayed at the Radisson Blu for a couple of days and had breakfast every day at Salt. The restaurant serves a variety of Indian and Continental dishes. The staff were very pleasant and courteous. If you are looking for a place that serves high-quality Indian and Continental food, this is the place to dine.

The place is located closee to the airport. The food is great. I particularly liked the desert being served on the ice slab with a dash of rock salt and the olive oil to keep it intact. Nice concept! Must do if in the vicinity!
