One of the best fine dining restaurant in this south part of Chennai and is well known for its delicious shelless crab and king prawns. Mostly this restaurant is full on weekends. Most visited restaurant by me i must say for its services taste quality quantity and ambience. One of the best ever.

We were going to this place after a couple of years. It has shifted once again to the Karaikudi complex further down from its old location on Cathedral Road. Their reasonable priced buffet was obviously popular, but we decided to go a-la-carte. I found that the Manchow soup was good, but was spicier than the waiter led us to believe.... More

Visited Duchess after a long time maybe after a decade or so. The restaurant has relocated to a new location in the Karaikuddi complex near Neelgiri store. We were greeted by ever friendly staff with big smiles on their faces. We were early for dinner and hence had a choice of where to sit, after trying out 2 different tables... More

Just the usual thing. Same usual menu, food is good but nothing stands out. It is convenient to go to since it is in the middle of the city.

The best thing about this restaurant is its location. Finding it won't be an issues since its right on the main R K Salai. We savoured the Sweet corn soup which was piping hot and done with good consistency. However, the food was just about ok.... the fried rice and assorted veg. It didn't provide us with enough motivation to... More

My husband recollected yesteryear memories of Duchess, where guests would be led into a Traditional Setting, by a friendly staff and were given cold towels to refresh themselves. Apparently the older branch was closed, to be shifted to the current venue. Decor wise its Simple - towards contemporary, but nothing to write home about. Food - Ultimately, you just cant... More

The food was like 2 stars but the prices on the menu is like 5 star restaurants. The ambience is negligent and food even more. Don't waste a meal and ur time visiting this place.
