“A Revelation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

If the Michelin Guide Rouge ever covers India this place would get 3 stars. The chef has taken familiar south Indian flavors and elevated them to a new level. Can't wait to return

“Best Coastal food in India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

On a recent short visit to Chennai, I was staying the Taj Coromandel for two nights. I fell so in love with this restaurant that I ended up having all my lunches/dinners in this restaurant.

The service was spectacular. They took special care of me and recommended me different food items every time.

The seafood, chicke, lentils, rasam, dosas, are all too die for. This is a must visit for every one in Chennai.

The ambience is very royal also.
