I have eaten in this restaurant a few times and I have never been disappointed. They serve good hearty, unpretentious food which is flavourful and simple. They do not burden the palates with too much of the Tandoori / Indo Chinese staples but stick to their strengths that is good south Indian non veg food. I was pleasantly surprised by their veg thali which was really good.
The staple idli, dosais, biriyanis are a must try after the awesome kozhi rasam.

Highly recommended if you like simple non veg food which is quite pocket friendly

Kovai Alankar Vilas, home style food that set the parameters high. Looks so low key, but food is so classy and beyond compare. Loved the food and the hustle bustle of the place. On a Sunday, difficult to get a seat during peak lunch hours, such is the demand for the homely food served here. "Alankar" a true "Alankaram" to the famed Kongu cusine. Loved it and would love to come back. Easy on the stomach and on one's pocket too.
Service is quick and good. Hospitality of the service team is a feather in the cap for the restaurateur. Keep up the great work Team Alankar.

This place is just like any other chettinad restaurant like Junior Kuppanna or Ponnusamy. It is in the basement of the building. The place was not very neat. They need to keep it more clean for repeat visits. Some food were good like the Mutton Kheema Roast which is the Dosa with Mutton Kheema stuffing. I wouldn't call it Kheema, but rather nice juicy mutton pieces well done and really filling. Worth the money paid for it. The tender coconut sherbet was also good though a slight taste of some essence was felt. The plain dosa was too crispy and thin that it was crumbling in the hand and difficult to take with chutney or sambar. The chicken gravy they gave also was tasteless. So, to sum it up, some food items are good while others need to improve. Try the kozhi vadai, it is good. I wanted to try the egg appam but they said they couldn't serve it for some reason.

We went for lunch with my colleagues and Location and ambiance was good. we had briyani (chicken,Mutton and Egg) along with fish curry, nenchu curry fry,mutton chukka varuval and chettinadu country chicken fry.

All the items are very tasty and we felt like we found a fine hotel with tasty food at average cost in the Ambattur and anna Nagar surrounding.
