Ravi sir - I suggest you stop at Sai Sangeet instead since it's about 150-160km from Bangalore and the food there is excellent and they open very early.
With a 5:30 start from Attibele you should be able to reach here between 7-7:30am max and ideal for a breakfast break. In case you get to this place earlier then you can consider going up to the Arcot A2B which I guess is also a fine dining format unlike the ghar dhabha format like the chinnar one.

I'm really surprised to hear that A2B chinnar opens at 6am. Have been there quite a few times and found only coffee to be available at 6:45am and quality of this place is not at par with the other A2B fine dining restaurants like the ones in Salem KPN Plaza or the one in the Chennai Silks building at Hosur. We have stopped going to this place since the last 3 years or so.

Done .
Usually McD/Krishna Inn/CCD, just thought of A2B for a change.

Refreshment/comfort stop, it is, before Tindivanam

Yes, I sourced the number, spoke to Chinar and they told me 6 am opening time.
Had factored in delay like MTR1924 on Kanakapura Road / Kamath Upachar on NH7
Reach at opening time and the kitchen dictates

A2B only if no other. Have heard good about their "fine dine" versions. Hopefully Arcot is.

Thank you for the timely inputs.

Cheers.

Hello guys,
I'm Dr. Sujai Nikhil, from coimbatore, almost done with my studies in pondi. I really wanna join the meet but I don't think I'll be in town on the days you guys come. I wanna thank our bhpian Tilt for inviting me for the meet though, so nice of him. Missing out meeting our Tbhp family and the awesome cars. Anyway, the reason I'm pinging is that, please feel free to contact me in case of any help / assistance / food suggestions. My number is 9952690538. I cannot say I have the best knowledge about pondi, but three yrs of roaming around pondi's streets and eateries should count for something but I'm poor in touristy stuff, my forte is places to eat. But please reach out for help of any kind, I do have a lot of my friends who can help you out. And in case of medical assistance, definitely, call me directly, whatever the time of day is. I'll coordinate for the fastest medical assistance in my college, Mahatma Gandhi Medical College. Finally, for the wine connoisseurs amongst the group, PM for further assistance

Have an awesome meet, looking forward for pics and narration.
Cheers.

This looks like an exciting itinerary and I would love to join this drive. As there can be a requirement to travel during this time-frame, I am not able to confirm participation. I am waiting for my company to confirm travel requirements. Will enroll as soon as I receive this information from my company, provided rooms are available

Most welcome .

A. To meet us enroute, you guys have two options:

i. 09.00 – 09.45 am : A2B, Arcot

or

ii.11.45 am- 12.30 pm : Hotel Aaryas Garden, Tindivanam

B. The Bangalore - Chennai meet would be incomplete without sharing a meal together.
Do join us for lunch at the Hotel de L'Orient.

My guesstimate is it will be around +/- Rs. 600/- per head.
I have mailed the hotel for the lunch rate for non resident guests of our group.
Will update you with their quote.

Way to go CGB

Cheers
