Imagine a place which offers a delightful yet relaxing atmosphere each time you visit. Now I been going to this place for over 4 years and I don't remember one single thing bad about this place. Right from the food to the service - WOW.

When you take the lift and come down to the lobby, that's when you realize you come back to earth. This is my favorite spot in Chennai when I need to unwind and collect my thoughts.

Call ahead to receive tables as the place is popular and is thronged always.

My favorite place to dine till now. I still try to find out if it was the food or the atmosphere or the crowd or the pool, but whatever it's close to my heart. Love this place.

An absolute joy in all sense.

Decoration and lighting are perfect. Dim light, white furniture, dark sky. Flowers and smell of salt, sweet and spices.

A good roof-top restaurant near alwarpet - gives a decent view of the Chennai skyline (however, for the best rooftop experience, would still prefer The Crown, Residency Towers). Try to take a seat near the edge. This also had a big wall where they project sports and matches live.

Decent food - I liked their cocktails. Do book in advance.
