See ya at 10.30.
The place remains open till 11 .. 11:30

Service is VERY fast though - under ten minutes, or almost instant if you order biryani.

My recommendation is their chicken special biryani (which is made from chicken 65 pieces)

Porotta and Kerala Chicken is another very nice combo

For the vegetarians - paneer butter masala, Green Peas Masala are quite nice. Or Egg Butter Masala if you eat eggs.

See you at 7:30 or so!!

Sorry for the back to back - well past the half an hour limit to edit posts

There is an ac and a non ac section at topsee - both with much the same kitchen and the non ac is quite nice plus more brightly lit for any photography - so please use the non ac.

Hi guys - the meetup was good fun - and the meatup, so to speak, was excellent.

Menu -

Grilled chicken with Qaboosh rotis
Chicken Special Biryani (made with Chicken 65)
Kerala Porotta + Mutton Curry

For the vegetarians - Aapam / Porotta and Vegetable Kurma

Now for the photos. I'm restricting myself to just two of our faces and none of the food because the highlight of the meet was a lovely, mint condition Yezdi owned by Srini. More droolworthy than all the food, and I'm sure you'll agree.

Good that you had a nice meet.

Are you sure today you can meet them at Tindivanam? Just check out once. They left yesterday morning and are already at Pondi.

Thank God you said "Strange Men" rather than "Strange Bedfellows". Strangers become friends only when you meet them and spend time bonding.

Have a wonderful Birthday and a Lovely Year Ahead.

Belated Happy Birthday Queryanalyser. Hope you have a beautiful year ahead devoid of strangers.
Good you could not make it, or else we STRANGERS would have ruined your day when the clock struck midnight.

ksmrsm, truly said. Friends wont be strangers, and the purpose of the meet was to be friends and to put faces to the handles.

It was good meeting you all. Thanx to CGB, 7heaven n DeepakChan for taking the photos and to hserus for posting the photos and for the recommendation on the food. It was delicious.
And also a thanx to SRINI who turned up on a sparkling YEZDI after we had finished dinner. ( did he actually come to pay the bill ? )
Hoping for another meet and a drive (before we turn into ONLY FOODIES) in the near future.

Ouch. I didnt mean it as an offense term. In hindsight I should have done a <sarcasm> </sarcasm> around Strange Men, instead of just quoting it.
And if I did feel that way I wouldnt he here enquiring about the meet.

I wonder how people would have reacted if I had made it to the meet and left earlyish saying I want to be with my family before midnight.

We would have been Happy if you had joined us. And we did leave the place much before midnight; at least I did at 2110 Hrs and there were no issues on that. I am sure that the others did not stay back till Midnight. Hope you make it to the next meet that will happen. Enjoy your week.

There is a plan to go for a breakfast meet from Chennai to GRT Tiruttani on the morning of 14th January. Once the plan is confirmed I will post more details here.
