It was Pongal festival and my very close friend visited us with his family and we decided to go out for dinner.  Being a festival day, family was particular about vegetarian food.  It was quite sometime since we visited this restaurant.  So we decided to go to Rajdhani restaurant in Phoenix Market City in Velachery as it was very close to where we stay.  During our previous visits, I somehow missed clicking pictures of food, and that was successfully accomplished today 🙂 Continue reading


This restaurant has been on our wishlist for quite sometime now. In fact, today’s visit was also totally unplanned. We decided to go to Lloyd’s Tea House and actually entered the restaurant. It was packed and just two tables were vacant. The attitude of the waiters was not very welcoming. No greeting, no smile, they offered us a table and I should say the place was very cramped. In fact, there was a person sitting on a sofa next to the table we were offered, and he was hardly a feet or two away from it. I did not find it very appealing to sit in such an environment for about an hour or more. I felt it would probably be ok for a short-eat with friends, but not for a dinner with family. So we decided to go to Dario’s instead. That’s how this visit happened and I am very glad that it did. Continue reading

Akshaya Bhavan

This is probably the third or fourth time we are visiting this restaurant.  The restaurant is in Tiruvallur and most of the people travelling to Tiruttani or Tirupati usually stop here for breakfast.  If you start by around 6AM in Chennai, you should reach in about an hour and a half, just rite time for a breakfast and coffee 🙂
Ample car parking, good service and a good breakfast is what you can expect here.  Since it is on the highway, weekends usually is very crowded and you may have to wait to get a table if you go during peak hours for breakfast or lunch, other days are a fine.  Definitely recommended for a good decent breakfast on the way to Tiruttani/Tirupati.
