Chennai has the best of southern cuisines at its restaurants—luxury or otherwise. Breakfast items like soft idlis and crisp dosas fly off the stoves on the streets while a traditional meal served on banana leaves tempt your taste buds. Lunch comprises the staple, rice. If you love a spicy twist, dig into Chettinad food. Nungambakkam, T Nagar and Alwarpet host many famed eateries.
You can sample authentic southern dishes while you are at The Leela Palace Chennai, as our chefs at the hotel prepare the most popular recipes from the south. Here, food comes with a dollop of warmth that will linger long after you’ve finished your meal.
