One of my favorite place for a filling lunch. The best thing to order here is their chettinad meals with sea food as sides. Nethili fry and Brain fry are never a miss with the sumptuous meal. A fresh lime is a must to keep you cool for the super spicy food. Mouth watering again....

This hotel is located in chennai, serves both vegetarian and non vegetarian food. Food is just ok and many items mentioned in their menu were not available at the time we went there. Dosa items are worth trying and this one is specialised in the delicious fish dishes.

I considered ponnusamy's as one of the foremost establishments for authentic chettinad cuisine and I have visited several times on trips to Chennai, but my most recent visit was very disappointing, food was very mediocre, the mutton chukka was not not good. Several servers / staff in uniform stood close to my table and watched while I dined but when... More

Went here for lunch this Sunday and had a bad experience. Had to wait quite a long for everything from finding seats to arrival of the food. Agreed it's so everywhere during the weekends but the service person was either not experienced or new God knows what! Especially if you order veg food it will take ages before u get... More

This place specializes in chettinad and predominantly tamil cuisine. The non-veg thali and the chettinad dishes are the best. Try the "sura-puttu" and the rabbit masala that is the specialty there. Clean and family friendly place.

This restaurant offers plenty of options for chettinad cuisine for both lunch and dinner. Right from briyani to side dishes like chicken 65, suraputtu, brain fry and others. It also offers north Indian dishes, but the south Indian chettinad varieties are the best!!
