Mango Tree, and Chettinadu food? This was the first reaction when I was invited by a friend for lunch. It took me quite by surprise as the name was quite deceptive! Continue reading
All of a sudden wanted to eat some non-vegetarian stuff and decided to order something. Continue reading
This review is for their restaurant at ECR (the same complex as the Dominos pizza)
We were two families who visited for dinner quite late after watching a movie at Mayajaal. The time must have been around 10:15PM. When we entered, there were a few people having food.
We were not informed of the closing time, no indication that things might not be available in about 15-20 minutes from then.
When we started to order, things were ok. We wanted to order more, we were informed that they are not available. ‘Closing time’ !!!!!
Kal Dosa-NO, Normal Dosa -NO, Desserts-NO ! The manager should have seen this coming and informed us in advance that they would close soon and not screw up our dinner half way.
The food was tasty, no doubt, BUT I felt the quantity was attrocious for the price. We ordered 2 Chicken koththu parottas, and I was not eating it for the first time. That is one of my favorite items..It was so little that I ate both ! Wanted to order another one for my son, Same ‘NO’ again !!
Overall Good Food, Bad experience !
This is a good Chettinad restaurant that belong to the Shyam Group (The Dhaba, Amaravathi, Shogun, etc). So almost all places, you will see these restaurants together.
We have tried quite a few branches in Chennai – RK Salai, T-Nagar, Besant Nagar, Velachery, Chrompet and found that the quality and service was good in most places, except Chrompet.
My most recent visit was with friends to the restaurant in Velachery. It was a friend’s treat and we were about ten of us for dinner. Good and tasty food, nice variety, quick service and nothing worth complaining at all ! There was a Dosa festival going on with some good choices on the menu.
I have tried their home-delivery quite a few times and that was also ok. Sunday lunch can take a while to be delivered because of the demand. Expect at least 45 mins to 1 hour for delivery.
A decent place to visit.
