This place is hidden inside a garden in the heart of Chennai's Whites Road with ample parking space. It is an art gallery, fashion cafe and hip coffee place all in one place. The open garden and verandah seating can be very pleasing to the eye with lush greenery all around. The food is definitely good with an assortment of... More

I went there with my wife to meet a very close family friend. Since both of us were wanting to meet up somewhere up class and serene; we chose this place. But, the entire experience was a disaster. Staff there is not at all bothered to make guests wait for the order. The espresso served after waiting for almost an... More

Very nice place for food and shopping. Nestled in a superb garden, I had a very tasty meal and enjoyed the greenery, the interior design in such a quiet surrounding. A very exotic feel in the buzz of the city.

In my 5 days in Chennai, I couldn't stay away. A wonderful oasis of calm in a hectic city. I would recommend going here for breakfast

A really lovely setting for some really lovely food. Though the interiors are vintage Indian colonial, the menu is contemporary and international.

I am quite a regular visitor to Amethyst, but off late see a decline in services. During the last visit, the food was very good as usual...but the Sevice quality starts when you enter the restaurant. There is no one to guide you or suggest you a seat. Then I went to the cashier and asked him if our group... More

Lush greenery, good products at the store, convenient location in the city and beautiful ambience with the right crowd which visits the place. What lacks here - the service at the cafe! 1. we were not asked for water to start with 2. ordered from the all-day breakfast (2 non-veg and 1 veg) They served cereals in a small cup... More

Been here once and was very impressed with the food. Italian veg was my choice. I would surely visit it again if my wallet permits... A bit on the expensive side... but great for a Once In A While splurge

For some of us is the second time in Chennai and the second o third in this restaurant. It's called cafe but you could enjoy an interesting brunch, cafe or dinner. International cuisine: italian, french etc. affordable and nice. Try to get a place in the terrace maybe you could feel like us that you were in the colonial british... More
