My favourite pub in Chennai, period. If i really start writing about this place i won't be able to stop at just a 100 lines! Love this resto bar. The ambiance, food, drinks, crowd and atmosphere - everything is just perfect. You don't get crowned the best and oldest pub in Chennai if there's nothing special about you. Zaras as... More

It is an ok place, great to socialise over a drink in the evening. Quite popular with the young crowd. The place is rather empty at lunch. Hence the restaurant has a set lunch offer that is pretty popular with women groups because of its good pricing. The service is good and food average though good value for money if... More

Good bar reeks attitude. If you are a stag or a guys only group you can just forget getting in unless you have an inside connect or a name to drop. The bouncers at the entrance give you a dirty stare and expect you to scoot. After a couple of shoo away's I just dropped this place of my radar... More

Zaras can never disappoint you with their food. Amazing food with some good music, that can get too loud at times. I personally like the place for lunch than the night.

Enter ZARA's The Tapas Bar. Just give the address to your hotel's driver, a taxi, or tuktuk and you are on your way to a evening of... More
