The kebabs are the best in Chennai. The raan is typical ITC quality. Excellent service. The opne kitchen lets you see your food being made. Stay away from the alcohol though, very hig taxes in Chennai.

Pashwari is the best Afgan I tried in Chennai, menu might be limited after the 3rd visit but the ummissable roasted lamb leg is still worth the visit, if you want to give up on the local vegetarian traditions. Definitely good value for money -reservations for big groups required.

I was highly recommened to visit this place and did take my clients out there. Although we had a confirmation for a 7 pm table reservation and we did land there at the time, however we were turned out saying we do not open till 7:30 pm.

Subsequently the presentation of the menu and the explanation on what's on offer was very limited and not coming through in spite of asking many times over. The waiter was in a hurry to sell and move on although there were not too many in the restaurant.

The food did arrive on time, but taste was not up to the mark.

Not a place I would visit again.

The Peshawari at Chola Sheraton in Chennai offers perhaps the best NW Frontier cuisine in South India. It is superior to restaurants offering similar cuisine in other cities like Bangalore. The food is extremely authentic and tasty. The key here is to order a limited starter like a shorba and reserve your appetite for the main course. Even here I would recommend a simple meal of tandoori rotis with a couple of select side dishes, allowing you to savour the aroma and spices used in the individual items.
Be prepared for indifferent service though. The waiters take their own time attending to you and we started wondering if they were really interested in taking our order. They hardly gave suggestions and it is better to speak to the floor manager for suggestions. The waiters hardly ask you if you need anything more, so if you need complete privacy and space you will love their indifference. However, the food and ambiance amply make up for the indifferent service and the culinary experience is quite memorable.

if you wanted the same food for 15$ you can get it in copper chimney across the street

yet if it is in the sheraton you have to try it at least once

the food was good but not superb

the menu was made of heavy wood so it was the heaviest menu i have ever read
