SIGREE GLOBAL GRILL

We had lunch there today with lot of expectations. First thing is that building is under construction, so outside there is all concrete and they havent bothered with beautifying even entrance..so very basic view..inside seating is spcacious.
Moctail and soup and then starters...grill on the table..there was pineapple chunks, paneer, potato and mushrooms,and  babycorn fried..all very mediocre.
In the main course there was ma ki daal, tuar daal, kali mirrch paneer, aloo simla mirch, curd rice, biryani, steamed rice, rasam ,baked dish etc, ..not much good vriety and then Naan roti also then dont bring fresh, its kept on the table..Ma ki daal was good, rest just ok,.
In desserts, there were no good indian dessert..there were maal pua and rice kheer and both not worth it and then there were many cakes and mousse and icecream, but icecream was totally melted.
Its easy on the pocket..705/ per person, but I didnt find it worth it..In the same range, Barbeque nation is much better in food.

Annalakshmi

Finally we got a chance to try this restaurant on this Sunday.. As soon as we entered, we thought..wow what a place, ambiance is very good. Since we had booked the table in advance, we got the table immediately. and waited for food impatiently. The ambiance increased our expectation, but we were in for a big disappointment, mainly because we went for north Indian food, here its mainly south Indian cuisine with some north Indian dishes added, but that too not prepared in north indian way.
Started with soup and it was good, but in starters there was only one item..daal vada..

and then thali came..with paneer, rajma, potato,beans and sweet raita, with naan and chapati. naan and chapati were ok but not a single curry was tasty.There was lot of variety in rice, but without good curry we didnt enjoy anything. and waiting in between dishes just spoils your mood and apetite both.In dessert it was sort of payasam but flowing type, and gulabjamun and icecream. last two were good but he never asked for a second serving, ending it with a paan.

Good things there were seating, ambiance, silver crockery and cutlery and paan and a little dessert,but main food was not good and service for thali should be fast.

and all this for 1730/ for two..not worth it

HOLA

I am a lover of mexican food, so keep looking for the places where it is served.

This place has good ambiance and seating and friendly service, and was not over crowded even,

We ordered watermelon mojito ..it was just ok..with a little too big pieces at the bottom.
Then nachos..they serve in a cart type dish with all the dips in tumblers places around..Though I prefer my nachos topped with everything, but i did it myself and liked it.
Crispy tacos..they were looking so good and the taste was also the same crispy and full of fillings..awesome.
Veg Fajita..here four mini corn tortillas are served with sizzler vegetables and all the mexican dips, it was yummy..awesome,,just loved it
The prices are little high, all this came to around 1560/-
But food is good..

Royal Indiana

This is a pure veg restaurant, and ambiance is very good.with enough space between seating arrangement.Crowd was also better, in the sense not making too much noise or talking very loudly..though this part cant be controlled by the restaurants, I dont like the places which look like fish market.

Service is one part I wasnt very happy with..first as soon as we entered there was no one to tell you about the place or anything. then once you sit down, there is no immediate service, though it was not very crowded even.

But food was very good.in variety and taste both. There were lot of starters, I loved medu vada, the most among idli, pakoda, paneer etc etc.. Welcome drink and soup were also ok.In the main course Daal makhni was very good and so was palak paneer, there were lot of variety in rice and side dishes, north indian and south indian both with salads and all.

In desserts i like Indian sweets, there were two types of barfi, mysore pak, rasogulla and gulabjamun with rabri etc.with many baked desserts and variety of icecream.

All in all a good sunday lunch buffet for the price of I think 1111/-per person.
I liked it.

BOMBAYSTHAN

They have a sitting place downstairs  in the open and upstairs airconditioned.I prefer airconditioned, so we opted for upstairs..Ambiance is very minimal..infact nothing at all.
They have burgers, sandwiches, pizza, rolls and shakes and icecreams. We ordered kiwi cream, veg grilled sandwiches and,falooda with kulfi and rolls. Kiwi cream was totally awesome, have never tasted such delicious one with so much of fruit.Rolls were also perfect, Falooda was also good, as far as Chennai is concerned.And sandwiches were just yummy.
And one thing I liked that they serve in good quantity with good quality and rates are very reasonable.They dont compromise with quality anywhere.
Just one little suggestion that if they put more butter on the outer surface of bread, sandwich will be very crispy and less dry.
I would certainly go there again

Roast And Grill..Green Park vada palani

I bought the groupon coupon for this and found that this was my best deal.The restaurant is on the roof top with a pool..and ambiance is very good....infact I loved sitting poolside..looking over the lighted Forum Mall...much better than sitting inside.

Then the service was excellent, they were polite and very attentive to our needs, before we finished even one started, another came on the table. In the mocktails we ordered kiwi cooler and it was perfect.Then in the starters they had corn cob,paneer tikka,onion capsicam with herbs , potato with cream, soya patties etc, all grilled or roasted. He asked us whether we wanted any repeat of the starters, but it wasnt possible for us, we were full..so much that we picked a little from the main food.There we had 4.5 vegetables and daal, veg, pulao, curd rice, and naan..baiagan ka  salan, shahi paneer and daal were just yummy..Only thing I miss in chennai is that rarely they have dahi bhalla in menu..but here they compensated with starters.In dessert there was lot of variety and I loved the chamcham ,icecream and some fruit..couldnt try everything, as there was no space for that.

I loved the place.

PUNJAB GRILL

I went to Phoenix mall to eat at habanero and it was very disappointing to see it closed for renovation, then we thought of going to CPK and it was also closed,very disappointing, and then we saw this Punjab grill and thought of trying it.
Its ambiance is ok and so is the seating, since we were early we found the table easily. Menu has more of non veg. section, since we are are pure veg. we ordered Hara bhara kabab in starters, it was quite good and they were quite big ones and 5 in a plate.
In the main section we ordered Paneer makhani, khasta roti and amritsari kulchas.Kulchas were very good, havent seen many restaurants here who make it, but khasta roti was a misnomer..it wasnt khasta at all, instead it was crisp like makki..Paneer was ok, their quantity is quite a lot, I would prefer small portions, and less gravy or more paneer.
In the end they serve a small drink something like paan liquor, which is ok
Most of the dishes are in 395/ range and breads for 99...109 etc..
Nothing extraordinary..just a nice place to go sometime..
