Had Chettinad meals and Fish Masala. The meals was served with lot of accompaniments (3 non veg plain gravies, one koottu, one poriyal, one keerai, sweet, appalam, chutney and many more). Kesari served was not up to the mark. Fish in the fish masala was refrigerated old fish which spoiled the taste of the gravy. Plenty of room for improvement. Service was awesome though.

A good place for lunch.... superb non-veg food... fish and mutton.... the veg food is equally good... but be prepared for the spice.

Service is good and the food is value for money.

Quality is very good and the quantity given is too less. Got chicken fry and those people gave chocolate size chicken 5 pieces for 340 something. The worst cheaters ever seen. I been to Velachery Karaikudi branch.

This one is a true Chettinad restaurant with great South Indian non-veg offerings. The food is on the spicy side so be prepared. Apart from the traditional veg fare of Dosas, Idlis, Vadas etc which are good, the Crab Soup, the Mutton Keema Dosa and the Chettinad Chicken are lovely. But the best treat here is the Egg Appam paired with a flavourful Paya or Nalli Curry. The making of an Appam is quite fascinating to watch at the live station.
The ambience is old-school and quiet, the staff courteous and the service very quick. The portions are not very big, but the pricing is decent. A 3-course meal for 2 will cost you Rs.800-900.

This restaurant suppose to be one of the best in city. Unfortunately the services and food was really bad. It took nearly 15minutes to take our order. All the staff was not at the restaurant but was in the kitchen. The restaurant was not crowded at all only about 4 family when we arrived. The food arrived only after 30min and it was not served hot. The taali set was tasteless. The rasam was very salty . We couldnt eat the food at all. Having eaten karaikudi food before this, the food here was really a disappointment to me. Hence, I would not recommend this place
