Description: Madras is your pick for sumptuous South Indian cuisine. Sample specialty dishes from Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Andhra. The mouthwatering flavors of Southern India come to life in a colorfully tantalizing display that is sure to inspire and satiate. Enjoy local specialties like crispy lentil crackers, spiced dried curry and lentils, and shallow fried vegetables paired with rice and laid out on a fresh banana leaf. Aromatic filter coffee is perfect any time of the day.

Recently, my mates and I visited The Madras. On the same evening, my family friends visited the restaurant. They had come from the USA on a Holiday. It was surprising to see them at the same restaurant. All of us thought the ambiance is good and very spacious. The restaurant has a good menu and the food was very tasty. A couple of dishes we had were a bit spicy but the dish needed that. The service was very good. We had either the Manager or the staff approach us every few minutes to ask if we needed anything else. They were very courteous. The price of the food is definitely affordable but the value for money is unquestionable. Worth every penny to be honest.
We hope to visit this restaurant soon.
Surprisingly my family friends loved the food too. They are quite fussy about the food considering they are from the USA and quite aged too.
So, if you are looking at authentic South Indian food, this is the place to be.
