Dhabba Express, Teynampet

Went there a couple of days back with my friends. The first thing that struck me was the poor ambience. Next came the beginning of what was going to be poorest service. The guy who took our orders insisted on having us order whatever we want in the beginning itself. We placed our orders and waited. When it came, what shocked us was the quantity. The orders placed by 4 of us, 4 Indian Breads, 2 Main Courses, 1 starter and 1 Rice, wasn’t enough for feed even 1 or 2 persons. Other places we’ve been to usually serve 2 pieces of Indian Breads. But this place serves only one small piece. And that’s it. And when we tried to place order for extra items again as we were hungry and this wouldn’t be enough, the waiter said he wouldn’t take the order. I mean how difficult it really is to prepare some extra rotis? It wasn’t like they had already exhausted their supply of dough. But no. No luck there. And when the bill came, we noticed that we had been charged SC for a place where the service was among the poorest, and were also charged wrongly for one of the main courses(About some 50 bucks extra for it). When we insisted on paying at the billing counter after seeking clarification, they simply said there is no billing counter, you’ve to pay here itself and showed us a similar item in the menu card(which was not what we ordered or served) and said the billed amount is clear. Finally, with extreme displeasure, we paid the bill and left the place hungry.

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 ;)
