Enjoy barbeque chicken and Jamaican Potato in the company of Jack Sparrow and other pirates from the famous Pirates Of The Carribean movie at the newly opened restaurant, The Black Pearl! 

What Makes It Awesome

Have you ever wanted to have a meal with pirates? (Who doesn't?) You can do just that at The Black Pearl. Spread across a sprawling 12,000 square feet, this restaurant is gargantuan. You are welcomed by Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa, and Davy Jones, of course. Skeleton heads, large vintage golden chandeliers, a stage with a huge octopus, what's not to like at this restaurant?

There's a photo corner where you can sit on an electric chair (oh, we are just kidding) and the beheading spot. Coming to the food, their buffet is equally massive and filling. With live counters for  - chat, pizza, grills, they have a lot to choose from. This place is a meat lovers haven, other than chicken and meat, they have options like eel, octopus, and rabbit. You read that right!

Their starters are the best. We recommend you to try their Jamaican Crispy Potato and Atishi Aloo as part of the vegetarian starters. Do try their Chef Special Mutton Seekh, Achari Fish and Peri Peri Prawns. They also have a live barbeque grill on each table. Expect mushrooms, gobi, aloo, pineapple, corn for the vegetarians. Non-veg eaters can binge on any meat to be grilled and served. Ask for your choice of bread and pair it with a plethora of sides - Paneer Kurchan (typical Paneer di sabzi - spicy and goes well with the bread), Aloo Gobi Adraki (one of the best of the lot), Dhaba Gosht (the chicken pieces are to die for), and Egg Korma (spicy gravy).

For dessert, they have kheer, jelebi, chocolate cookies, and cakes. The buffet begins from INR 625 onwards. 

What Could Be Better

Even though the place is massive, they are overflowing with people even on a weekday. This can be quite a turnoff. Make sure you book in advance. The live counters are super crowded and it will definitely take time for the chef to get to your order. 

Coming to their food, you can give their pasta a miss. Same applies to their fried rice which lacked flavour. 

Pro-Tip

We hear an open a rooftop bar with the biggest dance floor in Chennai is opening here soon, yay!
