This cosy place has been in existence in the same place for nearly hair a century - almost unchanged in every aspect including the Andhra flavour cuisine. Meals are spicy, delicious and not costly.

Good food. Good ambience. Quick Service. Seems to have a clean kitchen. Well located. In all, good Andhra food service set in a comfortable environment with great service. Perfect for a quick bite. Nothing negative to say about the place, but nothing out of the ordinary either!

If you like Andhra Thali Meals, this is a must try place in Chennai. It is value for money. Don't forget to try the Yogurt / Curd at the end of your meals. The Yogurt / Curd is the best in the menu.

Biryani quantity was the usual, however felt the mutton pieces were 3 in one bowl and 2 in another, does it go by weight, maybe? Actually the Chilly chicken made the meal very filling. Liberal quantity of gravy, thick... More

Had been here to this Amaravathi Restaurant last sunday nite for dinner. I ordered for the Andhra style full meals. It was a treat of sorts with its pappu podi, gongura pickle followed by Chicken and fish kolambu then start of again with a spicy rasam which helps in digestion and finally thick curd. Just loved the food.
