The lunch was very good and as usual taste. But the service was very very bad and not even 1% quality. The lunch buffet was very poor and not even the food was hit.

Just had a delicious evening meal here: some garlic naan, steamed rice, a mixed veg curry and a chicken curry for 600 rupees. Shame we did not go there on our first visit to Chennai. Good food, friendly staff and nice setting.
