Chennai is south Indian city with its own culinary culture. Chennai Cafe emobodies this culture in their menu. When you enter this establishment, you are awed by the grandiose decor not found in typical Indian restaurant. Wall filled with murals from 18th century iconography. Small platform for live music performances. We went during week end morning so the setup was... More

Went in for lunch, arrived just before 2pm. Waited to be sat. Cluster of guests trying to pay. The buffet was expansive. The quality of the food was sordid. I could only eat half of the selections. The other half was too dry. If the food on the buffet is not fit to serve at 2pm, then bloomin close at... More

We really enjoyed the food here . It is definitely not out typical eatery but felt confident the food was closely aligned with authentic flavor based on the customers in the establishment . This restaurant is perfect for a good sampling of authentic southern Indian cuisine. The unlimited lunch buffet was only $11 , we felt like that was more... More

My girlfriend and I went here for lunch and although we aren't that familiar with all the wonderful offerings we found everyone very nice and accommodating with all our questions. We loved the buffet and are going to come back soon.

We like Indian food, but don't go often since there is no India restaurants near where we live. We had to go to Frico (ust over an hour away) so we decided to try this one. The last time we tried one in Frisco was not great. I must say this place was super nice, efficient, hot food on the... More

Pros: Kid friendly food like Appam and Dosa were great! Loved their buffet. Appam and dosa were made in front of you and served fresh to you. Ambience was great. Table was cleared without being asked so that it's free of clutter during buffet. Cons: They had a lot of dessert items but not that impressive to taste. Prices could... More

Every time I visit this restaurant, it is packed. And it is a large restaurant. Not cheap, but not overly expensive. The owners and lead service staff know me. They engage me in conversation. They make me feel very welcome. The food is outstanding. The buffet is large and offers great variety. If you are looking for top notch Indian... More
