We happened to stay for 2 nights at Taj Coromandel last week. It was a pleasant stay and was most convenient owing to its location at the Nungambakkam High Road. The security arranangements were too much as some of the IPL teams were staying there. I guess, we spotted a few players, but couldn't recoginize any as we are not much into cricket.
We stayed in a luxury room. The room was a little small compared to the other Taj properties we have tried in the past. Could be because of its location. The bathroom was really spacious and the tub was quite spacious too. My son had a good time in the tub. The diwan setup by the bay window was good. For some reason, the mattress was not so comfortable unless you are at the middle of the bed.
We tried Nasi Goreng and Chicken Satay for a dinner. It was exquisite! The breakfast spread at Anise was really extensive and we particularly liked the museli and the danish. I mostly tried the south indian breakfast. The pongal was rich and the vada was soft too. They had this onion oothappam whih turned out to be a disaster. I was surpised they couldn't make a good onion oothappam in chennai. Both the days, there was a little excess of tamarind in the sambar and the chilli chutney was a little sweet. The green chutney was perfect. Their egg dosa needs a special mention. They have this cutting chai, which is an imitation of the nair shop tea :) It was no where close to the real cutting chain.. too creamy. The filter coffee was divine and was lingeing in the buds for quite sometime.
The kind of personal attention we got is worth mentioning. The way they understand your likes in the first day and offer everything based on your likes is amazing.
As always, the hospitality was wondrtful
