“LOVELY kebabs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

It's open air, so be cautious of the weather when you go. Do NOT miss the Kebabs, they are just amazing! Do make a reservation, they are quite full in the evenings.

“For a easy breezy meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

One of our favourite restaurants in Chennai, Above Sea Level at Raintree, St Mary's Road, has never disappointed us. The tables are far enough from each other that you don't feel you are sharing your neighbour's meal! What my husband and I enjoy most is that you can have a quiet conversation without the usual background noise of a crowded restaurant. This is probably because it is open air. The food has never disappointed- both the continental and the Indian food is superb. Try the melt in your mouth mutton seekh kababs, the grilled prawns, the stuffed potato starter and the palak pasandida with corn. Call ahead for reservations because it is always booked solid.

“Indian Food speciality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

the roof top ambience, the breeze passing through just to lighten up the mood, the stars, wow.. the food right from the softest panner tikka to the brilliant kulcha. With very few north indian food restaurants in chennai, this one just is the right mix of spices, choices, prices...
