Velu Family Restaurant, Nungambakkam

A pretty mediocre experience at Velu Family Restaurant on Valluvar Kottam High Road. Earlier, it used to be known as Velu Military Hotel, and used to be quite popular amoung our friends’ circles. Since it has been a while, a friend and I decided to try! Continue reading

Prems Graama Bhojanam, Anna Nagar

The name ‘Prems Graama Bhojanam’ needs no introduction in Chennai’s food scene. Right from the day they started, they have been only getting better and better, passionately serving their customers with ‘health quotient’ as their primary focus! An attempt to serve food that was the staple diet of our earlier generations has been very well received, amidst the growing footprint of ‘fast’ food. When I heard they opened another outlet at Anna Nagar, I couldn’t wait to try ! Continue reading

Burmese Food, Second Lane Beach Road, Parrys

I have already written a few times about Burmese food in Chennai and I should admit, I am very fond of it. I have heard from so many sources that the best Burmese food is available in Royapuram, Vyasarpadi, Tondaiarpet, Ennore, and a few other places in North Madras. While I am yet to try from any of these areas, my go to place for Burmese food has been Second Lane Beach Road, in Parrys and I have loved it, every single time. Continue reading

Soy Soi, Kotturpuram

Some experiences wow you, some barely satisfy you! I would say, my experience at Soy Soi was more like the latter, I’ll tell you why ! Continue reading

Hotel Saravana Bhavan, Pazhavanthangal

My good luck with Hotel Saravana Bhavan continues !
I have visited quite a few HSB outlets, and the ones that I frequent are Venkatnarayana Road and Alandur/Pazhavanthangal. In spite of all the complaints of drooping standards, mediocre food, etc, I have personally not faced anything worth complaining ! Yes, I am certainly of the opinion that they are pricey for the quantity they offer, but taste-wise, I’m quite satisfied. Continue reading

Guntur Gongura, Sholinganallur

How can EVERYTHING go wrong in a meal?!?!? This beats me !
To sum up in a line, it would be ‘Average food coupled with bad service and even worse attitude‘ ! That’s my lunch experience at Guntur Gongura, Sholinganallur. Continue reading

The Dhonnai Biryani House, Thuraipakkam

The Dhonnai Biryani House – Naidu Military Hotel – Jai’s Kitchen, in Thuraipakkam! This place has quite a few names on the board, so just mentioned all of them.  Continue reading

Rasavid, Karapakkam

Rasavid, a name that I have been hearing for a long time now, primarily for their Hyderabadi Biryani ! Somehow never managed to visit them for a dine-in, but long ago, I have ordered once from them and I loved it. Continue reading

Kalpana Andhra Mess, Sholinganallur

This place brings back a lot of memories! It used to be one of our regular lunch places for almost a year during my Accenture days, way back in 2007-2008. Kalpana Andhra Mess is located right outside the old Accenture office, immediately next to the Gateway hotel in Sholinganallur, on OMR. Continue reading

Kumbakonam Mess, Nanganallur

A little place on the Nanganallur 2nd Main Road. Tasty, decent tiffin for dinner. Absolutely VFM, no complaints about what I had! Continue reading
