Saravana Bhavan

After a visit to the Exhibition at Island Grounds, we were quite delayed and it was around 10:30PM, we decided to go to Saravana Bhavan on R.K.Salai, as that was on our way without taking a big deviation. Continue reading

Spoonbill

An ad-hoc dinner, absolutely unplanned.  We were four friends driving back home after a visit to the Trade fair at Island grounds.  On the way back, we decided to have dinner while we were driving on the T.T.K Road.  The next immediate restaurant was Spoonbill and we stopped to have dinner.

Café Coffee Day

We have been to this outlet on Velachery Bypass Road a couple of times as we stay very close by.  I found this place quite good.   Continue reading

Dhabba Express

We were four friends catching up after a long time.  We went for dinner to Dhabba Express and overall it was decent. I have been to this place at least 3-4 times earlier, but a few years ago. Continue reading

High Time

High Time is the bar in GRT Grand Days.  We were four friends catching up after a long time.  We actually decided to go to Anytime, the coffee shop at GRT.  Since it was full, we had to find an alternate place.  As we entered, the place actually had a strong smell of alcohol.  Normally you dont see it in Star hotels.  Some TASMAC AC Bars have this kind of a smell.  The service was ok, but a little too slow to our liking.  The drinks and the side eats were good.  Overall nice time with friends.  Nothing too special to recommend.

Buhari Hotel

This review is for their Chrompet restaurant.   As we entered, we found the restaurant to be very spacious.  In fact, haven’t seen many restaurants as big as this.  The interiors were good and clean. Continue reading

Epicures Junction Food Court, The Grand Mall

We spent some time in The Grand Mall and had lunch at the food court on the top floor.   There were a quite a few cuisines to choose from – Punjabi, Mexican, Indo-Chinese, South-Indian and so on.  We decided to mix-and-match a bit and share it among ourselves as we were a family of two adults and two children. Here’s a brief review 🙂 Continue reading

Pinkberry

Heard a few times from my wife that this is frozen yogurt and not ice cream !!!  Well, I wanted to try, but did not get an opportunity to do it earlier.  We went to this place and asked for two flavors, unfortunately they were not available – Pomegranate and Chocolate were not available.  All that they had was Mango, Green Apple and Salted Caramel.

Cha Republic

Have been hearing about Bubble Tea for quite sometime now.  Friends in Singapore say it is very common there.  Similarly it is famous in Malaysia too.  I wanted to see what exactly was this ‘bubble’ in a tea 🙂 Continue reading
