The ambience here should please ex pats: walls are decorated with registration plates, football and baseball mementos, and American rock n roll plays nonstop. The food is good, even if a few dishes were a liitle overcooked and dry. We particularly enjoyed the fried zucchini (courgette to Europeans). The country fried chicken, a Tradition from my native South with a hint of German schnitzel not far away, brought my roots to the surface. It is hard for the ambience itself to keep from dominating the table talk; hunting out memorabilia from a particular state and swapping American tales is inevitable.

Truly American in every way... From the menu to the USA souvenirs that decorate everywhere you look! Sparky's must be the only place in India where you ask for tea and they serve a huge red diner-style glass of good ole' Southern iced sweet tea... with free refills! My husband and I were missing the USA after months in India... Once we found Sparky's, we went every single day thereafter while visiting Chennai! We only wish we had found it sooner, and so will you!!! Thank you Sparky's for bringing us a piece of "home"!!!

If you are dieting or cautious about what you eat, don't forget to tell them to skip the cheese. At times the chef does not like to do that. So be prepared.
