I love this place and visit each time I'm in Chennai. The crazy hustle bustle of the city is easily forgotten amidst the lovely gardens, beautiful fresh food and relaxing colonial style surroundings. The cakes are delicious, fresh juices and salads are too and, in my opinion, it's 'safe' to eat raw food here, where I might not in many... More

Stopped in here for a late lunch on the recommendation of our driver. First impressions are very good with lovely surroundings, nice buildings and a real oasis in the middle of busy Chennai. The menu is a mix of western and Indian dishes and I ended up ordering a burger and fries, my wife from the Indian menu. The food... More

I visited Amethyst 4 times (lunches and dinner) due to its convenient location, stunning surroundings and most importantly wide selection and fantastic quality of food. The lunches offer huge variety if you are just looking for a salad or something a little larger, and the veranda means you can enjoy it even in the heat. For dinner, it offers a... More

I came for an afternoon tea and suffered a serious shopping attack. The boutique upstairs is pretty outstanding, offering a fabulous selection of exquisite Indian clothes in a beautiful environment. The shop assistant was most helpful, talking me patiently through the various designers, some well-established others up-and-coming, all of them top of their game, presenting clothes showcasing beautiful weaving, stitching,...

Went to the amethyst for breakfast with a friend on his strong recommendation. Had finished a couple of hectic busy days in butting chennai... this was exactly the panacea I needed. The green foliage and trees ambience transports you out of chennai. Unhurried place, spaced out seating and discreet service.. lovely healthy breakfast.. all in all came out refreshed after... More

This place is hidden inside a garden in the heart of Chennai's Whites Road with ample parking space. It is an art gallery, fashion cafe and hip coffee place all in one place. The open garden and verandah seating can be very pleasing to the eye with lush greenery all around. The food is definitely good with an assortment of... More

I went there with my wife to meet a very close family friend. Since both of us were wanting to meet up somewhere up class and serene; we chose this place. But, the entire experience was a disaster. Staff there is not at all bothered to make guests wait for the order. The espresso served after waiting for almost an... More

Very nice place for food and shopping. Nestled in a superb garden, I had a very tasty meal and enjoyed the greenery, the interior design in such a quiet surrounding. A very exotic feel in the buzz of the city.
