we began our Chennai experience with a nice lunch at this hotel. It was very interesting to taste the local cuisine beginning with food being served on a banana leaf - with various small veg dishes full of Tamil Nadu delicacies. We loved it.

If you would like to have a sumptuous banana leaf meal in Tamilnadu style do visit this place. One of the best places where you get Chapathis or Pooris, Rice, Sambar, Rasam, Vattha Kuzhambu, Koottu, Poriyal, Raitha and curd and the taste is almost homely. They serve this in both lunch and dinner format, wherein the menu changes everyday for... More

Had been here for couple of times for having lunch. They serve Meals in noon(Rice, Sambar, Rasam, Kuttu, Porial, Appalam) with banana leaves. All the items except appalam are unlimited. Good tasty food. Due to temptation, we eat more & we don't get the feeling for eating dinner. Even evening snacks bonda with coffee also good here.

One of the oldest place serving food, is completely no frills, old school look and feel of eating food. Everything is from the Raj era - the tables, the waiters, the experience is completely non-hurried. Serves budget meals if you have no other option.

The interiors, tables and chairs are old styled. The waiters are old school as well the restaurant gets crowded easily as the capacity should... More
