The cafe has only two seatings inside with the Air conditioning. We had to sit outside in 40° temp. It was hot and humid with cats trying to jump in the tables.

All three things that you look in a restaurant, ambience, food, and location are very good. People who live in the city of Chennai may find it a bit away, but... More

The restaurant is near the ecr water tank signal. Approach road to the restaurant was broken and was in very bad shape. The restaurant has a beautiful outdoor seating but it gets very hot in the summer and the humid days so better to avoid.

The ambience of this place is awesome. Lot of privacy if you sit in individual huts. Service is quite fast. Food tastes good. Though its a little expensive, its worth a visit

This was not my 1st visit here, have been here four times before, at least the food was the saving grace each... More
