Highly overpriced. Poor service and survive on a hype created among European guests who has no idea about South Indian food. A real rip off

For a very classy and classic South Indian food, music and cultural experience, Park Sheraton/ Adyar Park/ Crown Plaza Dakshin is The place. You should NOT MISS their Iyer Trolley menu and their live appam counter.
