I would, without a second thought, say the bestest MUTTON BIRIYANI I have ever eaten from a restaurant in my whole life ! The mutton is cooked up to the point where it... More

These guys are chettinad specialist. More suited if you are a Non-veg. They have authentic biriyanis of Chettinad. The location is central to Karama and seating is adequate. They also have "Appams" which are really fluffy Some dishes may be too hot for normal palates and hence take care in ordering Overall a nice place-little crowded

Visited this place by chance, would recommend. In Karama area across from park. Nice food, good selection, prompt service. We tried classic choices, food quality good, no complaints.

This restaurant services Chettinad cuisine which is a region in South Indian known for its Architecture and food. Highly recommended if you are craving for spicy Indian food. Their Biryanis are a must try and the food is very reasonably priced.

My review for Anjappar Abu Dhabi applys here. But this outlet is in a super prime location nestled between the other indian restaurants overlooking the Karama park and is actually a better location for a family dining experience...... All the waiters here speak TAMIL and I love that so I get to speak ma language and their mutton biriyani and... More

Anjappar is always favorite place for having some awesome Chettinad food and this restaurant serves the food from the taste of real chettinad. We go to this restaurant for lunch outs from office and this is the best with very good service. My favorite dishes are Lunch Chicken Meals, Nattukozhi Rasam Soup and Karuvattu Kulambu.

We visited Anjappar for dinner. The food is authentic chettinaad bit to be honest I have tasted much better chettinaad food from their other Indian branches. Though the biryani and king fish fry was delish the other dishes lacked the extra oomph. A nice place to go once but would I visit it again.. maybe not anytime soon. The staff... More
