Every item on their menu is simply delicious. I would blindly choose to dine at this place any day. Thought the menu is limited but the food makes up for it.

Maison Perumal restaurant is located in a heritage restaurant and offers gourmet Chettinad fare. We are vegetarians and ordered Vatha Kozhambu with rice and poriyal. They acceded to our request of no onion or garlic in the poriyal and created a green poriyal. which looked...so fresh that the colours popped out! The other dish we ordered was Vadacurry which was served with Kuzhi Paniyaram. This was the most subtly flavored and light vadacurry that we have ever tasted. Every dish was beautifully balanced, bursting with flavour and crafted with lots of love. Hats off to Chef Sivakumar and his team. For the discerning foodie, maison Perumal offers an Authentic and Gourmet Chettinad experience.More

Visited for evening snacks, part of b:live ebike tour Filter coffee was good, though I had to add sugar separately and coffee kind of lost its hotness as I added sugar and mixed. Vada was great too- not very common, so not easy to find...elsewhere. Witness Kollam, relax on the suspension bench, take a close look at tamil style homes- good place to visit.More

This restaurant is in the hotel of the same name. Both are very good. The restaurant serves Tamil Creole food - South Indian Food with a French influence. Sunday lunch seems very busy, the restaurant was packed. The service is very good and very friendly....They do nice cocktails and have a reasonable wine list - without the exorbitant Tamil Nadu taxes. As we were staying at the hotel we booked the Green Moon Dinner- a set meal served on an upstairs terrace - very good, it has to be booked in advance and we recommend it.More

No, they don’t do Buffets for dinner, it’s an a la Carte menu and its worth every penny spent.
