“Good Food & Good Prices - Best Place for Combo Meals.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

I went to Mast Kalandar, Teynampet opp. S.I.E.T Collage.

We had Bombay Bhel - good portion, crisp, not very gravish but a bit dry. Typical Bhel. Cost
was Rs.49/- - really woth it.

We had HP 3 - a Thali which had everything started off with Masala Buttermilk, 4 Phulkas,
01 Veg. Dish, Paneer Butter masala, Raitha, Tadka Dhal, Salad & Veg Pullav, the Best Part of the Meal was the Sweet - A Hot Gulab Jamoon --- all this for Rs.149/- including taxes.

All the dishes were good and made in a traditional North Indian way - Good Chef. Congrats.
They claim to have the Best Gulab Jamoon in Town - YES ! Its TRUE.

“Mast Kalandar @ OMR”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

North Indians craving for their kinda food in Chennai, love this place. They don’t have a handout menu and waiter to take orders, which is nice. They have a huge menu board right next to the counter. Combos for different types of taste buds and hunger levels are offered.
Places like these should make south Indians love and crave for north Indian food. I feel that this place didn’t succeed in that aspect.
Service was below average. There was no tap water in the Hand wash area.
I had ordered for an Aloo stuffed parantha. Whereas they brought a Paneer stuffed one. Although they made no arguments and readily offered for a change, it was a waste of time. The paranthas were too oily. I used atleast 5 tissues, but still there was oil left on it.
The plates and cups could have been cleaner. It will easily strike as unclean for anyone conscious about hygiene.
They consider the Gulab jamoon as their signature dish. They’ve labeled it as best it town. Well, it wasn’t a disappointment!

“Good North Indian food in Chennai”

Visited the teynampet branch with family. Tasty North Indian food and good value for money. However service was poor. Its like a self service counter almost. Should go only for food and not for experience

“Mast Masti”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

I visited the one in Ashok Nagar. It's a good choice for a family outing. It has decent value for money and it's a nice place to get some Punjabi-style flavour in Chennai. Definitely worth checking out at least once.

“Not a great choice. Seems to be ok.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I have been to the one at Teynampet. For those people looking out for a good ambience-This is not the right place. It looks more like a food court. This place is a very good choice for people preferring take aways. Incase you have made rotis at home and you need a perfect side dish, Mast Kalandar offers you good varieties. Be careful when you go for combos. It might be a lil heavy. The staff members are pleasant but they know only hindi and are not fluent in English or Tamil.

Perfect northie items that tasted good- Puris n chole masala, Stuffed kulcha and dal makhani.Lassi was just awesome.
Areas to improve-The starters were not delicious and tasted ok. Service definitely needs improvement.
