If you are a veggie and u miss chettinad food, which generally consists of a lota meat, forget karaikudi! there is sangeetha adyar with veg chettinad tiffun items, made classically and served unconventionally. The place is always crowded so be ready to wait for sometime, nothing good comes for free, does it? and one more thing is chettinad items are available only after 4 30 as those are snack items. So as such the place is good for dinner than lunch, since they also have some specials for each day.
The most mouth-watering dishes here are paniyaram (salt) and the cauliflower masal dosa (the best i’ve ever had). There is also palpaniyaram on somedays and chettinad idli is great too. The unavailability of certain items everyday creates the whole craving i guess. I dono why, maybe they are holding supply to increase demand. But i think the demand is great already and i hope they serve everything everyday.
The ambiance is much more sophisticated than any other sangeetha in chennai. Other than the chettinad items, the usual pulao, chenna batura, ghee dosa, quick lunch, poori, you name it and its yummmmmmmy. There is an unbelievable list of desserts from icecreams to sundaes to juices to what not!
The service is quick and efficient. The price, is just right for the quality, i mean you can taste the quality literally!
Ambiance – 4/5
Food – 5/5
Service – 4/5
Price – around 250 to 300 for a couple if u wanna go for desserts
Will i ever go bak? – i go there all the time for their paniyaram!
