For inexpensive vegetarian fast food / meals etc., any branch of Hotel Saravana Bhavan / Sangeetha / Murugan Idli Shop / Ramprasad / Hot Chips / Adyar Ananda Bhavan will do.

Ponnusamy Hotel is meant for NV. Veg. folks will be disappointed there. The crowd also varies depending on the location of Ponnusamy - slightly decent crowd at the Vannanthurai branch compared to the political party crowd at the Royapettah branch. On the topic of Ponnusamy, there's a new branch on the Old Mahabalipuram Road near the Sholinganallur checkpost.

There is a place on Montieth Road opp. Hotel Ambassador Pallava that sells good, inexpensive parathas - forgot the name. Its not advertised widely.

Try sukh sagar in annanagar. The north indian cuisine is very good.

I love the palak paneer there and the chaats too. The joint is a frequent haunt for north indians in chennai.

Also like AIWO located in nungambakkam (Barista complex). Very nice food for the diet minded although light on the quantity. But after a nice meal there (havent tried the buffet) you feel rejuvenated and energised. For good chilly beef just go to karaikudi or kumarakom.

P.S. i love the rolls sold on the makeshift stall in front of annanagar hi style and in the bombay frankie stall

Are we now allowed to list all options for eating out? Not just the inexpensive ones?

Expensive ones are dime a dozen..

Mansukh on Ramasamy Street, T nagar is a good option for inexpensive Gujarati / Rajasthani cuisine.

Undoubtedly. Being a vegetarian in a land with abundant vegetarian cuisine is something I consider myself fortunate for. The evidence is there when you see me.

Yes, and because of your continued patronage, the owner now drives a white M5.

Whatever you do, please don't go to Geoffrey's. It is supposed to be a pub. We saw 3 women and 12912 men. Beer is 400 bucks a pitcher, and to add insult to injury, their chocolate milkshake is bad. And those are the better parts.

Why would you want to eat chaat? Be a madrasi in madras and eat idly, dosai & vadai.
Just kidding.

Mansukh at T Nagar (address above) is the best place in Chennai for chaats. Parking space is a pain for cars.
