This is more or less a high class tea shop. But the surrounding atmospheres is quite fascinating and fels like romantic too. The prices are quite on expensive side but its worth paying . I love and will visit again

Visited on 20/08. Green oasis in city centre. Excellent concept. Nicely spaced out exterior seating. Garden care can be improved. Should provide with out door misters as Chennai evenings can be sultry. Food service was fast but quality mediocre. The sugar cane juice was the only saving feature. Ideal for family, couples or group outing. Ample car park. A real... More

I've heard of friends and colleagues rave about the place and decided to check out the place by organising a small meeting there. The ambience is truly unique with thick foliage and and potted plants all around and kind of very quiet which can surprise as it is in the heart of of the city. There was indoor seating but... More

The property is inviting, lots of greenery and options of dining al fresco as well as indoors. Nice place to bond over a cuppa, specially when it rains. While the food is acceptable, the attending staff are not! Service is certainly not their strong point, worth a visit for the outdoors.

Came here with work colleague for lunch stop before the big Mall visit. Beautiful surroundings...palms, bamboos with birds singing and just off a busy road. We sat outside and had pizzas and cold drinks.....excellent. After a quick look at the clothes and jewelry shops. Certainly will return....

Great place to entertain your date, best friends of the opposite sex. The snacks and sandwiches with the cola fizz drinks adds to the overall beauty of the place - in open garden settings to choose from. The small water tanks and the fishes complete the nature's presence. The aroma of the food being grilled and cooked spices up the... More

The kind of place you expect to find in Goa or Manali. Wonderful, simple, tasteful decor, and a beautiful environment where you're surrounded by a thick growth of trees and plants. I only had a short-stop here for dinner, but it was excellent, and I'm hoping to be in Chennai soon so I can eat here again! They have a... More

The four stars is for the lovely gardens and the great ambience of the restaurant itself. Dining amidst lush greenery in a beautiful old house is a perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. The food however is very average at best. The spinach crepe we ordered was a messy concoction that lacked both taste and presentation. But the ambience... More
