Review of Firdouse

Firdouse
Ranked #1,638 of 6,689 Restaurants in Chennai
Cuisines: Asian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 January 2017

This restaurant is great and unbelievably good value especially if you are on a budget which is currently happening in India due to government decisions to limit the amount of money that you are able to gain from ATMs currently 2000 rupees
The menu is varied and covers all tastes from Asia to Chinese and even Arabian BBQs
For example a whole chicken BBQd is 320rupees about £4.50p
I had a three course vegetarian meal for just over £2 80p
The staff are friendly and the service excellent there are no alcoholic drinks served here but there's a couple of bars just along the street for a refreshing Indian lager
Would I return you bet I would roll on the next cricket series in India !!!!!!

Despite being the only people in the restaurant the service was quite slow. Portions are quite generous, but the quality of the food isn't anything special. Nothing to complain about either - but there are better places with less lavish advertising.

Went there to order Shawarma, 3 times, over a month. Spent around ₹1200 totally at this place.

I liked the paratha shawarma the first time, as the parathas were newly made and very fresh. In fact, the parathas were so hot when those fellows brought it from the kitchen, they could not touch it for a couple minutes. The shawarma tasted very good then. The reason why I went there again... and again.

Subsequently, the second time (a week or so later), ordered the same thing. The parathas they used must have been made some hours back. The taste was very disappointing (the texture of stale parathas...man).

A couple weeks after that, thought of giving this place another try. Big mistake. Told the cashier clearly about my previous experience with stale parathas, and asked for newly made parathas.

The guy came out and told the shawarma guy to *heat* (only heat?) the parathas. I even told the shawarma cook to bring new parathas from the kitchen. They obviously don't listen to customer requests.

The parathas used were simply reheated. They tasted marginally better than the second time (see above).

Overall, they lost a potentially regular customer who spent ₹1200 in a month.

It is one of the best halal restaurant in chennai especially in royapettah, it is located near busy stretch of triplicate high road, I ordered chicken shawarma and mutton biryani, it was soo hot and tasty, especially the onion sauce I loved it too much, the he only thing which you have to consider is it has not parking space, you have to park your car somewhere else, but it is worth to do it.. overall had a wonderful brunch...!!!

I had several meals at Firdouse and wasn't too impressed. Prices are higher than other restaurants in the neighbourhood and the food takes longer to arrive, so I expected more quality. It has a very extensive menu and that may be the problem. Perhaps the chefs don't have the expertise to provide the best quality for so many dishes. Nothing was terrible but nothing was great either. However, it's open mid-afternoon and open late so if your travel plans get a little messed up, it's always a place to go.
