Friends,

where do you advise to eat in Chennai( lunch, dinner)? We heard that food is not expensive in India. Nevertheless the price is important question but not the single. Taste and safety are not less important.

I ask which category of"eating institutions" may be advisable for eurripean tourists in Chennai. If somebody knows specific addresses it would be perfect.

It is not an enormous city (India's 4th biggest) but it is not that small either! Where are you staying/shopping/visiting?

I would suggest that you try any of the bigger, clean-looking, busy. local-vegetarian-food restaurants. There are one or two chains, eg Saravanna Bhavan, Vasantha Bhavan, Sangeetha ...

Well, it is quite big, and we have members who have spent their whole lives here. Added to which, I have my limited, specialist areas.

If by large shopping centres you mean like malls, then that falls outside of my speciality. Apart from Chennai's original big mall (there are older small ones), Spencer Plaza, which is like a multi-story indoor bazaar, I'm not keen keen on how Chennai "does" Malls: it is Westernised shopping, but not as good as in the West. Or the further-East: I'd go to Singapore for shopping centres!

Many visitors trust in Saravana Bhavan, because it got its name into the guide books, but it is true that it is general clean, with bearable toilets, etc. Locals are not so keen, partly because the portions are small by Indian standards (they are quite big enough by other standards ) and it is a bit of a fast-food place: they want your table for the next customers.

All malls like CITY CENTRE, AMBA SKYWALK, EXPRESS AVENUE, etc. have food courts invariably at the top floor, where you get food from all imp. and famous food chains of Chennai, including Ssravana bhavan, Pzza Hut and so on.
