This place needs no introduction. They serve standard Chettinad and Southern Tamilnadu cuisine, the menu is very extensive and offers a wide choice of meat and sea food. Biryani and Crab masala are the highlights. Also try the mutton sukka.

Another busy neighbourhood that is a center of trade
and commercial related sctivities is the famous and
popular Royapettah. Apart from being known for its
many tourist attractions, Royapettah is a favourite
shopping and entertainment check in for all budget
travelers. Popular for shops selling home fabrics,
traditional sweets, furniture and house décor, it can
be quite a delight for all those looking at packing in
