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.

We had a family get together dinner at this place. The choice available was plenty. Taste was typical south indian. Food was also served in south indian style. A must for some one who likes good south indian food in good ambiance.

A person in our office recommended this restaurant since I wanted to try "authentic" Indian (but wanted to be safe since I was flying the next day). The wine list was surprisingly good (Phelps Insignia, and several high end Bordeaux's), There was one South African Syrah that was exceptional. As for food, I had curry chicken and some very spicy...

Very authentic south indian fare. You can ask the chef to tone down the spices if you are not fond of cry spicy food. The appams and stew are mouth watering and it is difficult not to over eat.
