1. Canvas per sketch:

Tropical patterns on the vibrant walls are a staple in this cheerful cafe. This all-day dining destination serves international dishes with an emphasis on comfort food. We love the attention to detail with everything from the display plaques to the walls. Regulars swear by the double espresso pork chops and the edamame dim sums. If you are a ‘dessertarian’ check out their dense and decadent chocolate torte.

Location – TTK path

2. Sage and Lavender Bistro:

Another global bistro that lets you travel vicariously, this lovely eating spot was once an old warehouse. The restaurant offers a cluster of small tables as an alfresco dining option, but you won’t miss opening up to the outside even when you’re in the indoor dining area thanks to the high ceiling. Try the Singaporean Chicken Curry and their Lindt Tiny Chocolate Cupcake.

Location – TTK path

3. Hokkaido:

Takes its name from Japan’s northernmost island which is also one of the country’s most popular culinary hotspots. The constant flow of Japanese visitors speaks to the authenticity of this restaurant and forced the move from a smaller location to a more cheerful and larger restaurant on TTK Road. Their meal trays are perfect for first-time visitors.

Location – TTK path

4. Medium rare:

A traditional delicatessen with the finest imported meats, cheeses and foodstuffs, Mediumrare also offers a fine menu of Western-style dishes. Most regulars return for their classic roast leg of lamb served with black pepper sauce or the British-style fish and chips. In addition to their roasts – the Jamaican Jerk Chicken Roast is a favorite, their pies (like the Lamb and Onion Pie) are also worth trying.

Location – St Mary’s Road


5. Café de Chamiers:

A favorite among expats and locals for an anytime meal or snack. The cafe’s interiors transport you to colonial-era Madras covered in sepia-toned wallpaper and photographs. The menu features artisan coffee, freshly squeezed juices, and their signature comforting snack – jalapeno-infused dyna bites. But it’s their all-day breakfast that has our vote. Location-Chamiers Road, Alwarpet.

6. Pumpkin Tales:

Founded by three female entrepreneurs, including a Vancouver restaurateur, Pumpkin Tales is run by an all-female service team. The interiors are cheerful, with plenty of natural light. In a city where non-South Indian breakfast options are limited, Pumpkin Tales’ breakfast menu is a welcome option. We love their varieties of Eggs Benedict, Power Smoothies, and Morning Glory Bowls that include Congee and Miso Soup.

Location – Bheemanna Garden Street

7. Aeseo:

Chennai is home to the largest Korean expat community in India and a long list of authentic Korean restaurants. Most of these restaurants weren’t high on the experience factor. Aeseo is raising the bar for the city’s Korean restaurant landscape – the interiors are more lavish and the bibimbap is probably the best you can taste in India.

Location – Kesavaperumal puram, Chamiers Road.


8. Black Orchid:

One of our favorite upscale restobars in Chennai. This is one of the places where you are likely to see Chennaites looking lively on a Saturday night. Most of them don’t just come back for the atmosphere and the cocktails; it is also food. From exquisite sushi rolls to Mediterranean signatures, it’s all in the mix.

Location – Chamiers Road, RA Puram / 9176477647

9. Mexe:

A no-frills Mexican/Tex-Mex restaurant with a casual vibe. Perfect for an impromptu office lunch or a get-together with your school buddies. The menu is filled with comfort food. Quesadillas are our pick here, Grilled Pineapple Toastadas and Tres Leches Cake are also popular options.

Location – Cooperative Colony (off road TTK)


10. Friends:

If we have to pick one place in Chennai for gelatos, it’s Les Amis. With a choice of 30 ice creams each day, you will be spoiled for choice. Add their selection of artisan desserts and coffees and you have the perfect after-dinner destination. But Les Amis is more than just a sugar rush destination, call a day early and check out The Whole Shebang, the intimate rooftop dining section that offers a European-inspired seven-course menu.

Location – Road to Chamiers
