“Good Food”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a first class restaurant and we enjoyed ourselves. It was busy but with plenty of choice. The service here was good and it was relaxing.

“Super ambience, average food”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The ITC Grand Chola lives up to its name - it is GRAND! This is the best looking hotel in Chennai by a huge margin, and is guaranteed to sweep you off your feet.
We were at Madras Pavilion for the Sunday brunch. The spread was pretty huge, with lots of vegetarian as well as non-veg options. However, the taste was pretty average compared to some of the other brunches we have sampled in Chennai. The service was also a bit wanting with our man disappearing for long periods and taking a while to respond to our requests. That said, the place is very peaceful and has the perfect ambience for a long, relaxed lunch.

“This restaurant keeps you coming back for more!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

By far one of the best spreads that I have encountered in Chennai. The variety of food that is available definitely requires more than one visit to try everything.

The staff are friendly and brief you on how to go about having your food while you’re at the restaurant. Generous portions of starters are brought to your table after which you can go around helping yourself to the buffet. Chef Nikil Nagpal outdid himself by preparing an excellent prawn masala which was specifically tailored to our liking.

Before you begin your main course, make sure that you visit the entrée counter. Try the smoked salmon if you like to live dangerously. The spread has tons of choices and keeps you coming back because there are a hundred more options that you have not tried yet.

Madras Pavilion continues to be my favorite dinner spot in the city.

“Relaxed and satiated”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were treated to a brilliant array of food laid out at the Sunday breakfast this morning at the ITC Grand Chola. While other dishes were top notch, the Grand Chola is becoming a destination for 'killer' Idlis that literally disintegrate & melt in your mouth. This is the veggie equivalent of the Galouti!!
