TAJ FISHER MAN'S COVE


This is a very luxurious resort, where one can book sea side cottages or villas also.
On Sundays they have buffet breakfast and buffet lunch..we had their BF..it was delicious and there was so much of variety..almost everything in 550/ per person. They had stuff paratha,idli,dosa, lemon idli, upma, utthapam,all sort of breads, muffins,waffles, juices, lassi, cereal and fruit sand of course coffee,tea,milk.

Their dinner buffet was 850/per person and it also had amazing variety including paani poori also(I think it was that day only, not a routine.Their vegetarian food is a complete delight..we had paneer methi, deewani haandi and daal makhani wih all types of bread, nowhere we have found so soft paneer and chapathis.

In mocktails we tried..evening sun.a mix of orange juice and lime and

teetotallers Pina Colada....it is a mix of ice cream, pine apple juice and coconut water..this one I liked and grilled vegetable sandwiches too.

I would say its a perfect place to enjoy..

Ambiance...very good
Service ..very good
food..also very good..though for vegetarians curries are very limited.
Price...I wouldnt say expensive..its good value for money.

GREEN PARK













Green park is located in Vadapalani and has a huge space. Ambience inside is good. We went there for Lunch Buffet. and found it good..here are the details...

Starters...one non veg and one veg,...daal vadas and without any chatney, this is one area I found where they could add some dishes, specially for north Indians, there os no snack and even vadas had no chatney.

Beverages..Jeera paani and lassi(salted)....Both were good but I would have preferred some juice or some aerated drink.

Soup..Mulligawny..my hubby found it very tasty, I prefer tomato soup only.

Main course...5 types of rice.
8 varieties of salad.
2 types of pastas
vegetables..khoya paneer, karela, 2 curries in south indian style, daal masala, and one fried vegetables...bhajia type..this they could have given hot and served as starters with chatney,3 types of papad and butter naan..yes dahi bada also..in south indian style that is without tamarind chatney and with sour curd, but it was tasty.

desserts....Here they had very good variety...balushahi,gulabjamun, gajar halwa, peanut barfi,mysore pak, payasam, rabri..all indian sweets..then fruits, 3 types of icecream,pudding, trifle, cheese cake and some more...and they were delicious.

Tea and coffee..I saw the counter, of course we didnt take it.

And all this for the price of440/ per person.

Ambiance..good an good seating,

Service is also good

Food preparations are good, except that they could add some more variety in the main course and starters.
