Good Food Guide

The Metro Plus Food Guide, Chennai’s first good food guide, has hit the stands. This is a collection of restaurant reviews and good caterers in Chennai written by the Metro Plus team of The Hindu. The book costs Rs 150 and Shonali Muthalaly writes many of the reviews that find a place in the book.


There is also a section on caterers in Chennai and the ones that Rashmi, the metro plus food columnist, likes. The book is a neat production, is useful and some of the reviews are written with élan and style. Some reviews are even fun to read for a non-food junkie like me. If you want to know where to take your friend out next time, browsing this book would help.


There is a rating available for every restaurant reviewed in the book. Also the facilities available like care parking or the use of credit card are mentioned. The book tends to be stuffed with joints that only the elite can afford but the ethnic neighbourhood restaurant is not ignored. There seem to be plenty of places reviewed in the book that you and I can afford as well.

    Thanks N – been wanting to ask someone how the food guide was. I saw it on the stands but never got a chance to browse through it. Sounds like a good buy from your post.

    I can remeber an interesting incident when I read the above.A review was given in Hindu about the Karpagambal Restaraunt in East Mada Street. In the article it is mentioned that the eatables are handeled by hands by the servers, The next day when I had been to the restaurant I noticed that the eatables are served by the servers by using some Fork Or “IDIKKI.” But the same has been collected in theri plate to serve from the whole stock by hand only even without any plastic glouse very openly withour any hesitation in the eating hall. But the visitors to this restaurant are not bothered about all these things or about the hygienic condition prevails in the eatig room and restaurant.

    I want to start a small coffee shop. I would like to know if there are people who cater or provide the snacks and tea for such joints, or do I have to hire a cook/chef
