After a long journey, dinner at the Bangala was an unique experience. Perfect ambiance, great service and an unforgettable spread of Chettinad cuisine served with great reverence & love.

Wonderful setting, old palace transformed in a luxury hotel. Open air restaurant with nice garden. Delicious and original food. Professional staff. Price probably expensive but unknown as the dinner was offered to us.

We stopped there on our journey for lunch. The food was wonderful, the hospitality was great and the presentation was unique. They served us on Banana leaves which is very sensible because that way there are no dishes to wash and therefore no water wasted....More

Historic feel of the place has some remnants of charm... Rest of the premises are more common. Food tends to be too rich... but you can enjoy big swimming pool to cool down. City around is very noisy.

Our guide diverted us to The Bangala for a memorable lunch which we much appreciated. It is a really charming small hotel, set in lovely gardens and with a beautiful swimming pool. We were sorry not to be spending the night! Highly recommended.

Indian citizens are not that welcomed. They don't serve walk in customers. The price is ₹ 1,000 for one.
