Crimson Chakra, Adyar

My college friends and I met together in Crimson Chakra after a long time, as one of our friends was leaving for their Masters. Apart from fun-filled banter we engage in, we needed a place that offered the best and CC became the obvious choice, as we were looking for a place near Besant Nagar.
Our order consisted of:
Starters: Karuveppillai Urulai Varuval, Kaikari Urundai, Sutta Milagu Kozhi
Curries: Methi Malai Mutter, Murg Makhanwala,(and one more Chicken based curry recommended by the steward, whose name is eluding my memory. Refer pic).
Main Course: Bread basket, Smoked Chicken rice, Grilled Cheese, Potato and Herb Steak(I think so, not so sure, refer pic)

Karuveppillai Urulai Varuval: Finger chips with a good coating of karuveppillai podi. Tasted great !
Kaikari Urundai: Vegetable balls basically. Loved it.
Sutta Milagu Kozhi: My friends made me taste this one, by raving about it ! And it was worth their raving. Another awesome dish.
Methi Malai Mutter: This was Okish. Perhaps, I was expecting too much from the standards set by the starters.
Murg Makhanwala: I tasted the gravy alone and it was heavenly. My buddies raved about this one as well.
The other chicken curry whose name I forgot(it would be the last in their physical menu of curries), my friends loved that one too, but not as much as the Makhanwala. It was the clear winner among the curries.
Main Course:
Bread basket: The usual fare.
Smoked Chicken Rice: They loved it and that’s good enough for me(They all appreciate good food and trash bad food :P)
Grilled Cheese, Potato and Herb Steak(If that’s what this is): We were already feeling full by this time, so couldn’t enjoy this dish completely. But I took a few bites and it was enough to tell me that this is a dish worth trying out !
The steward was very friendly and patient when he helped us choose each and every item from the menu, explaining their specialty.
Overall, the bill came to Rs. 3070 for 4 people, which I felt is slightly pricey. But, because of the awesome food we had and the friendly service, it didn’t leave us with a bad taste.
Overall Rating:
Taste: 4.5/5
Cost/VFM: 3.5/5
Quantity: 4/5
Service: 4/5
Ambience: 3.5/5

Overall: 4/5
I would definitely love to go here again, when I get the chance.

Lakshmi Narayanan G

A stereotypical IT guy with a typical love for good food and good movies, not so typical love for books, rare love for the theatre arts and an abominable love for such lengthy sentences.

Naturally, with such varied interests, I come out with highly opinionated reviews ranging across categories and mindless blah blah blah.

I'm supposed to be living in Chennai, but I usually live in one of the social networks listed on my profile, since, hey that's so cool yo ;)
