We are quite a frequent to this place. I am from Punjab and was desperate to find a place which could match the standards of home. The Tandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken (maybe Chicken Sogoti as well) are delicious and well presented. Also, try the Lime Mint Cooler, the best Rs. 60 you will ever spend on a drink in hot Chennai summer.

Sea Shell has many branches spanning across the city but I personally find this one to be the best, albeit the service could be better. You face the similar Indian service challenges, such as waiter forgetting to serve you, not being available when you call and your gravy arriving way before roti, or the endless wait for a second roti kills the experience. Well, I guess you get used to it after a while.

Overall, for non veg good, I will rate this to be one of the best places to dine out in Chennai at reasonable cost.

Out in the middle of the hot summer, we stopped by at Savoury Sea Shell on OMR, coming back to the city after a trip on OMR. Having had a good experience at Annanagar branch, we selected this over the nearby Biriyani Joint - but not before checking if the restaurant had Squid Fish on the menu. There was a wait of around 15 mts but that was bearable as it was in a cool climate. Went up to a better view of OMR from our 'Couple' table.... Squid obviously was the first item ordered ( Chilly Squid) and it didnt last 2 minutes.. Next roti and Biriyani was devoured along with Spicy Chicken Curry dish and washed off with Sweet Lime. The top of the pops was squid of course.... and we will definitely go back for more ! It is simply too GOOD ...

Must try: Barbeque chicken, Prawns biriyani, Shawarmas. Great food, prompt service, and located very conveniently! Lots of parking space available in front and nearby. Wash your dinner down with ice creams from ibaco next door if you wish :)

Very good variety of Non Veg food, especially Arabian flavors and not so great for Veg varieties. Liked gravy dishes than NV snacks
