I have been to Kanna Curry House, in Section 52 as well as to the one in Section 17 many times and both are equally good. There is a wide variety of food.
What is particularly special about this place is that they are prepared to fry your fish there and then for you...................and that makes a huge difference to the taste.
I am usually partial to a good ' vettu ' thosai and on occasion to a good rawa thosai.
The chutneys and dhall that accompany these thosai are excellent.
The service too is fast.

I've eaten in 3 star Michelin restaurants, and in numerous other places dotted around the UK, France, Spain, Peru, Italy and China, and I always compare the meals I have to what I can get at this place. For my money, this is the best restaurant in the world.

The specialty of course is banana leaf rice - and you get huge helpings of rice and 3 types of vegetables. If you are a vegetarian this is enough to put you in heaven, but I always add at least a mutton varuval (dry mutton curry), a chicken perratal (curry with more gravy), fried squid with curry leaves and an iced coffee. They also have rasam, and fried chillies. Sometimes they have fried bitter gourd, but unfortunately, not always.

I also come for breakfast and have thosai and roti canai. These are fairly decent, and the coconut chutneys are amazing. I've had breakfast, hung around for an hour or two, then had lunch, this place is that good.

Service is only so-so, but it's not that sort of place. It's the sort of place where you can go help yourself if you know the staff well enough, and I've known a few of them well enough by dint of regular custom to do so.

Best place I've ever eaten.

Best Roti Chanai and Tossai I had ever! I'll be back soon to taste the rest of the food. the staff is very attentive too and even during peak time there is not a long waiting time. Love the little outdoor place they have under the trees!

Absolutely love it here. The staff are always really attentive and the food is always on point. The toilet is also clean. Try the fried squid, curry mutton and roti canai. Keep coming back for more!

Good food, great service. One of the better banana-leaf rice around. Some items are a bit pricey.Doesn't use real banana leaf but a printed wax paper in a green banana-leaf print which is unique.
