The Cascade

One of the oldest Chinese restaurants in the city, The Cascade continues to charm us with its good old, Indian Chinese dishes. The Besant Nagar one even comes with garden seating but the same flavours we've loved over the years. Their Beef Oriental Pepper Sauce and the Crispy Lamb Honey Chilli are our fave. In veg, we would recommend the Baby Corn and Mushroom Pepper Celery, Crackling Spinach and the Five Spiced Vegetables. Don't forget to wash it all down with their Fried Ice Cream. 

The Kandyan

Located right above the CCD lounge in Besant Nagar, The Kandyan is one of the few places in the city that specialise in Sri Lankan cuisine. While the decor is basic, this place wins in terms of flavour and prices (meal for two costs about INR 300). Must-try dishes include maasi sambal, deviled chicken and red appams with chicken curry. 


If you’ve lived in Chennai long enough, you’ve been to Eden. Their baked Italian dishes – the Garden Style Vegetable Bake is a favourite among regulars. You can also try the Tandoori fare and South Indian dishes for a filling meal.
