Rain Forest

When I heard that in Chennai, there is a theme restaurant...RAIN FOREST, I got curious to see it. I have seen Rain forest in Atlantic City and there ambiance and food both were very good.

So This Sunday we tried our Indian Rain forest...It is in Adyar on the main road only. They open it at &pm only, we were there early, so strolled around for 20 minutes, but it was good, because then we got a table, later on there was a waiting period of 45 minutes.

from the entrance onward, the ambiance is of Jungle..lighting, fountain, animals hanging here and there and even the waiters and waitresses all were dressed in animal prints
Since whenever we go to dine out, we normally prefer to order north Indian fare. So we ordered...tomato cream soup,masala papad, palak paneer,masala kulcha and pudina parantha. Except for pudina parantha, none of the preparations were good, as they all were prepared with garlic flavour which we dont like at all. The quantity they served was too much ,in fact so much that we couldnt order much variety, but it was not as delicious as it should have been.

They serve chinese and Indian veg and nonveg both.

so Ambiance......good

Rates..very reasonable.

Food.....just OK


but there is not much of the privacy, as the waiters keep standing there.....This style, i just dont like in the restaurants of the office bearers standing on your head, i prefer them to take their orders and vanish discreetly.

Here is the venue......

No. 41 & 42, 1st Main Road,

Gandhi Nagar Adyar, Chennai,

Tamil Nadu 600020

I loved the food at Rainforest at Atlantic City USA...I havent eaten that type of Cassadia anywhere else.

Cafe wise I like Europe there they leave you forever:) to relax and enjoy even if you order only a cup of coffee..no hurry at all.

Good review.. !! Yep, the food taste is not that good.. but the place is always crowded.. Perhaps the theme attracts kids and families...!!
