Description: The flavors of South India are rich and exotic. Fresh vegetable dishes are paired with rice on the side. Sambar, dry curry and lentils spiced with tamarind and black pepper are served on fresh banana leaves. A trip to Chennai would not be complete with sampling the strong South Indian filter coffee. The Raintree serves sumptuous dishes that come alive with South Indian, Chinese and continental flavors. Rooftop restaurants, bars and lounges inspired by the local cuisine provide a trendy ambiance with a touch of international flair.

“A Buffet With Good Varieties”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The food here has consistency and you will like the buffet as it has good varieties for veg and non-veg combinations. You can start light with the soups or right away for the meat. They have good deserts, if you have the space and time for it.....you can spend another 20mins enjoying the various cakes, cookies, sweets etc.....i think i saw like 50 variations. So take your time and take light main course...... :)

“Good Place”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

We went for the dinner buffet.We got there around 7 and the buffet was to start at 7.3o we ordered a fruit juice and a drink.By the time they came the buffet was ready.The staff is friendly.But the display could be a little more attractive.Most of the Veg items were good but spicy.It would have been an excellent buffet if one continental veg was there

“Mind blowing!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Above Sea Level (open terrace) at any time of the day is awesome, but dinner during nights is what blows your mind off. The service, the presentation and the food would surely make you feel you are floating. Go to the open terrace on a day just after it has rained and you will enjoy the place even more.

Make sure to book the table in advance though the staff are very accommodating in providing a table in quick time even when I went there a couple of times without a reservation.
