Reviewed 8 June 2017

Chennai Express is a pure authentic South Indian Restaurant, located at State Bridge Road, Alpharetta, Georgia. Buffet Lunch and dinner available. A variety of menus are available to taste and enjoy. The food is excellent and yummy.

I visited this Chennai Express restaurant on 7th June for dinner. Today being Wednesday, it was Dosa's special. Unlimited dosa's was the offer for a price of $10.99. In addition to unlimited Dosas, other items like Vada, Pongal,Shira, Idli were available for the dinner. Varieties of chutneys, Sambar and Potato curry added flavour to the above dishes.

The ambience of the restaurant is good and its a good place for families to have the great tasty food. In dosas, we tasted Mysore Dosa, Onion Dosa, Panner dosa, pesarattu dosa, Masala dosa, set dosa and khara dosa. All tasted good. it was a pleasant dinner filled with Dosas.

Ordered through Uber Eats, Madras Chettinaad was unavailable so decided to try this out. Got the Chicken 65, Chicken Sukka, Chilli Chicken and Nandu Kulambu - that's crab!!! So yes, saw they had crab and had to have it. Might as well start with that, it was awesome! I asked them to make everything spicy, and I have to say...it was a bit too spicy, is that possible? Oh yep it is. But still, I got through it, sipping on water and Jameson, which somehow helped. It's so much better eating spicy food at home. Anyways, rest of the dishes, Chicken 65 - not that great/authentic, I mean it's ok, but Hyderabadi's make the best Chicken 65. Chilli Sukka was really good, along with the Chilli Chicken. The Chicken Sukka had nice flavour and a dark thickish gravy, it was super tasty. Total was $45.61. Will definitely order from them again

It used to be very good before...used to be one of my favorites in Alpharetta area....in particular, the last visit (Diwali weekend) was not all that great (tried the regular a la carte for dinner and not buffet)...
The mini idly was a total let down...it was not prepared fresh and could feel the weird microwave-based preparation.. also, the veg biryani was not great. Ordered for spicy biryani but was not at all spicy, flavorful or tasty. The regular dosas were ok..bisi bele bath was great. But, do not opt for the rava dosa here. Not good.. sambar was not tasty...
This place seems to have an influx of regular visitors...so, they may have developed an immunity to the short cuts this place seems to adopt..like the idly..was not that soft or fresh and have a remorse for paying for that quality..
Could improve in taste and quality....downgrade from very good to average...
