This must be one of the oldest hotels in Chennai. The restaurant has a new feel, but the menu and the staff have not changed a bit. The service is good and people are offered the best service. You get many good stuff here. Being a bit old style, the place may not be filled with youngsters, but gives you... More

We went there for a sunday family lunch. Ambiance has not changed much over the years. But still it was nice feeling. We have to book in advance to cut down waiting time. Hospitality was better than average but not so great. For non-veg lovers, their fish fry was a special dish. chicken 65 and lollipop was very tasty. But... More

This is one of the Chennai originals, a Madras classic. But unfortunately, the taste of the dishes, the service, the decor is from a fading era (circa pre 1980s) Some dishes are still good (though inconsistent).

I have heard a lot about his place regarding the specialty of being a Fish restaurant. This did match up to all the expectations set by the talk i heard. Good Place for Fish.

This restaurant just has the best fish fry! The ambiance is representative of an ideal chettinad restaurant and it does not fail to impress us with its chettinad cuisine. Many of the dishes are really good and it is worth the price. A very good restaurant indeed.

We have, off and on for many years, had some good South Indian food at Meenam. Unfortunately, last Sunday, we were let down big time . We ordered chicken and fish thalis. First the positives - the fish curry was pretty good as was the semya payasam and the pappadum. Most of the rest was just about average. The "kootu"... More

Really don't want to waste my time writing a big review for this unworthy place. If few words can give you an idea, then here it is - Rubbery naan, soggy stuffed parathas, 2-3 different veggie dishes all having the same curry base and almost same taste, a veg briyani that doesn't have least of aroma forget the flavour. And... More
