Today, I rode to G Gopaul Dairy, Philips street, Broadway, Chennai, where I tasted yummy, yummy bun/butter/jam washed down by buttermilk. Each bun/butter/jam set costs ₹ 25 and the buttermilk, ₹ 10 a glass. The details are here.

Paradise, Perungudi - OMR (Next to Savoury Sea Shell / Opp Turyaa hotel)

Zaffrani Mutton Biriyani : Nice medium spice and a good blend of masala. The mutton pieces were tender & the gravy was good too. Didn't like the raitha as it was way too watery & saltier than it should be. Subtle ghee taste. Quantity is good for a heavy diner.

Cost : 195/ + taxes = 210.6 rounded to 211/- !

I have never tried any Japanese restaurant here. Prices seem high and I am prone to sushi addiction!

I'm also prone to disappointment. My standards are high. Never been to Japan, but was introduced to Japanese food by my expat bosses, in London. They hear expenses accounts and only went to the best places!

I heard, though, rust the place in Thiruvanmiyur is run by Japanese for Japanese.

Not an expert in that area, but Junior Kuppanna is a decent south indian restaurant that serves good Chettinad dishes. It is located slightly off the North Bogh road, and google maps would easily direct you there.

I really enjoy food at Thambi Villas, And I have visited their OMR branch several times. I have heard that they started out from T Nagar, where the food is even better. I do not know the exact location (Google maps again should help you), but at least the food here I can vouch for.

Pattukottai Kamakshi mess, TNagar. I have been to the one on OMR and loved their food, so I imagine it would be the same in TNagar as well

Junior Kuppana is not all that good when it comes to Biryani. Their mutton Biryani has very small pieces of meat.

There is a Sukkubhai restaurant in Alandur which used to be the favorite joint for many. Reason: Their mutton biryani has mutton chunks. They are from Nagoor where they make Biryanis in a traditional way: 2 parts of large pieces of mutton to one part rice. It is rare to find a hotel which can make Biryani the traditional way. You will find these traditionally made Muslim Biryanis only in Weddings.


Sukkubhai has opened a branch near Sangeetha in OMR.

[note] I have no business interest in Sukkubhai or other hotels. I am just a carnivorous foodie with a taste for South Indian Biryani. [/note]

I second - Pattukottai Kamakshi mess, TNagar. Brilliant non veg food; try their fish fry & mutton kola urundai for sure!

Hey Thad, I really liked Hokkaido which is in Teynampet; I have been there twice in the last 6 months and my wife who is a "japo-phile" and who has lived in Japan also approved it (so I am guessing it must be authentic )

I had to drive 25km to get to Sholinganallur junction on OMR to dine at the Black Pearl grill and buffet restaurant but it was all worth it. The staff is friendly, the grill meats aren't chewy , the buffet is a meat lover's delight and the dessert spread is much better than the pretentious rubbish one sees in local five star hotel desert stations. The freshly made jalebi soaked in malai is to die for. The price is very reasonable too. If you're in the area check it out.

I have been to Kappa chakka kandhari in Haddows road a couple of times and the food is excellent. You have good variety as well. One of the better kerala restaurants in Chennai, the prices are ok but the quantity is a wee bit less than ideal. The place does not serve biriyani or meals which is the mainstay of kerala cuisine at least in Chennai
