We sat down in this place and immediate thing we noticed was that this is a great place to get respite from humid Chennai summers. There is a cool breeze coming from Bay of Bengal to make you feel great. This is a roof top, with minimalistic ambiance and décor, but it is tastefully done. Being a non-alcoholic person, I... More

The view is really amazing from the top of hotel but i have to say that we have to wait almost one hour for our food. All the quality dishes were good but too much expensive, specially the drinks, more than 6€ for a local beer is unsane

Be prepared to part with (after taxes ) about £6.00 for a 330ml bottle of local beer. It's priced before tax sneaky. Try to ameliorate the pain by ordering before 6.30pm. Have one drink look at the views then go. The food was uninspiring also, I had a chicken dish that had the texture of soap. Service was friendly and... More

The restaurant is located at the top floor of the Raintree hotel, at the open terrace. Very nice view from there. The menu has a lot of different choices, from Indian to European, all very well prepared. A favorite of mine is the butter chicken as well as the salmon, but any choice will satisfy you. Sometimes the servants are... More

If I had reviewed this restaurant on my last visit a couple of years ago, I would have given it a really high rating. Somethings hadn't changed. The ambience was still great, the views amazing. The waiter was friendly. Inspite of it having been a hot day, the evening was breezy and beautiful at Above Sea Level. The one thing... More
