“Hot Chips (Palavakkam/Neelangarai) - Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Easily one of the good value-for-money eateries on ECR.

I love the sambar vada, dosas and parottas. Special mentions about Vegetable Parotta and Chilli Parotta!

Service is good and quick. Ambiance isn't that great if you are looking for a quiet/romantic meal

The chaats aren't that great and you'll find out the next day :).

They do have an issue with consistency. Veg Fried Rice and Veg Parotta have been pretty ordinary at times.

It is always full and so getting a table might be tricky on weekends, but worth the wait.

“Hot food but average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

I have eaten the sambhar rice and the chapatti kurma from this restaurant. It is served hot and is tasty but nothing to make it stand out. 2 weeks ago I ordered just a tomato soup because I wanted to eat light- for Rs 50, it was a an expensive and sad excuse for soup.

“Not really fast food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Hot Chips,as the name suggests had some not so hot but yummy banana chips alright served with the dishes. And fortunately they don't charge extra when you request for extra:)
The fare is nice & neat but the choices limited as the items on the menu card aren't always available.
Tasty but I've tasted better!

“nothing great, brand value sells”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

was suggested this hotel for lunch as it was close by to place of work. Known for its chips and snacks, they are wetting their feet in the restaurant sector too. The air conditioned hall was half full, but the service was quick. They did not have much choice, so I ordered the traditional lunch. Expensive and the taste was very average. There was nothing like a signature dish. Not worth it.
