The team at the colony left no stone unturned to make my experience memorable. Special mention to Mukesh, Vijay and Ganesh who, helped me a lot to satisfy... More

Colony is an in house restaurant of Rain Tree Hotel. The breakfast served here Colony had mixed varieties of south/north indian and continental cuisine which was also good in terms of taste and quality.

The flavors of South India are rich and exotic. Fresh vegetable dishes are paired with rice on the side. Sambar, dry curry and lentils spiced with tamarind and black pepper are served on fresh banana leaves. A trip to Chennai would not be complete with sampling the strong South Indian filter coffee. The Raintree serves sumptuous dishes that come alive with South Indian, Chinese and continental flavors. Rooftop restaurants, bars and lounges inspired by the local cuisine provide a trendy ambiance with a touch of international flair.
