I recommend -

1. Cholayil Sanjeevanam - Adyar/Nungambakkam (Their USP is the health factor - Veg food with lot of greens, minimal oil and fats. Meals available for lunch is real tasty and healthy too).

2. Saravana bhavan - T Nagar/KK Nagar/etc. - Tasty traditional south indian fare. Their veg meals is my favorite.

3. Rasam - Purashawakkam - Again, a very traditional and authentic joint.
