Nalaas Biriyani is the worst food i have had in my past 2 years in Chennai. (But we regularly order other stuff from them, as its near to our office!)

I strongly agree to this; their side dishes for Aapam and/or Indian breads are really great to have there. Rice items, sorry, we haven't even thought of having it there.

Also there's something called Ceylon aapam, which is a must try.

Pramod
Try out Amaravati on the OMR opposite satyam. We had tried Meals as well as Tandoori items and found them to be good.

But most of the time, the place is crowded.

My Wife loves the Briyani from Nalaas in OMR (opposite Arvind Theatre in Karapakkam) but feels that it is bad in the one in MGR Salai. Crazy Driver! Do give a try. Also, the fish curry in Amaravathi (in OMR) is good. It is Spicy and Tangy, perfect with rice and compliments well with curd rice.

If you are real fan of spicy pani poori then please try this road side shop in Anna Nagar, this is opposite to Kandasamy naidu college gate and it is located in the service line road, exactly outside Indusind bank. This guy serves yummy pani poori and it is very spicy, this would not taste as original mumbai pani poori though.

Still if you are unable to locate it please PM me

But pls give me the location; Google said MRC Nagar is in Raja Annamalaipuram. But I'm already weak in those areas, so any help on direction is appreciated. Tks.
That's correct; it is near the IMAGE auditorium at MRC Nagar. While coming from Santhome take a left at MRC marriage hall; if you miss the turn, take the next left at Ayyappan temple (opp chettinad vidyashram school). Go towards the beach and turn left (or right if you enter from the MRC marriage hall left), and you will find the French Loaf shop and Kokum adjucent to each other.

@pramodkumar
There's a hotel called Thampuran in Sholinganallur. Actually it's just before Wipro, on a cut. That place rocks

I believe there is a Mallu place on the corner of St. Mary's Road and TTK Road opposite to park Sheraton which is open even after 11 PM. Not sure if it is open now. Had piping hot Parottas and Brain fry at 11 in the night. Very Good :-)

Thanks.
For Veg, you can try Saravana Bhanvan located in peter's road.

For NV, you can try Hotel Poonusamy near Royapettah police station.

Thanks. But i felt the 'Neela Bhavan' which is close by to be much better compared to 'Saravana Bhavan'.

I haven't tried this 'Poonusamy'. I shall try this on my next visit.

You could try Rajbhavan which is opposite the Police Station on Royapettah High Road. You could try Cafe Amin & Hotel Safari on Royapettah High Road for Non Veg dishes. Offourse Ponnusamy is already listed.
