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

One such place in Chennai that i had visited numerous times and never regret doing so. The place is a contrast to the city rush outside and is a great place to have a good conversation with Friends and Family. The place is slightly expensive compared to the Average City prices in Chennai but is definitely worth it. I have... More

A very well set up restaurant in the middle of a very lush and green garden with beautiful plants. The restaurant was beautiful with comfortably laid out tables. The food served was good with healthy helpings and good flavours. All the orders were excellent and we'll enjoyed by all. The patisserie was of very good quality and quantity. We really... More

A friend recommended the Amethyst cafe and I'm so glad we took her advice. It was a little tricky to find, if you are getting a tuk tuk or taxi tell them it's next to Corporation Bank and then they will know where it is. We sat outside on the veranda and felt like we were in a tropical garden,... More

- The restaurant is a small walk away from the road - it is not visible from the main road - They don't serve water here! - The drink of the day (watermelon ginger cooler) was brilliant - all fresh ingredients - It is a very relaxed place, big tables, good for chilling, well decorated - Thai green curry with...

It is a very nice restaurant with a very different ambience. Do it is in the centre of the city, it is very spacious with lots and lots of open space and trees. The colonial era bungalow in which it is located adds to its charm. It didn't just the ambience but even the food is quite nice. All the... More

Serene with lush greeneries around. Great place to just sit with book or friends and relax..away from the din and noise of the citylife. Nice ambience though the menu is on the higher side.

Wonderful ambience in the middle of the city. Being a pleasant evening, we were able to dine comfortably outside, which is unusual for Chennai. The food was a mixed fare. The snapper made with spices was excellent. The pizza and crumb fried fish was good. They forgot to add the pork in the burger and special was a big disappointment.... More

A nice place to relax. You can find a lot of people here just enjoying a coffee while reading a book or working on their laptops. A lot of college students hang out here, but not the obnoxious, noisy type. If you want quick service, go elsewhere. It is a great place to catch up with friends, as they are... More

This place welcomes you with lush gardens, where one can go to unwind from the mad crowd of the city, with a chic store on the second floor and a flower shop on the ground floor.The menu ( non vegetarian and vegetarian) has options for everyone, ambiance is nice and service for the most part is usually good.
