Like every other typical State House canteen, there's super-fast service, great food and even better prices. Definitely order the Chettinad Chicken with Malabar Parotta, and the Egg biryani (if you like biryani South Indian-style). Vegetarians, blindly ask for the South Indian thali if you're looking for something cheap, tasty and filling - that rasam is gorgeous.

What Makes It Awesome
What Could Be Better?
Skip the buttermilk (omg, have you ever tried the one at Carnatic Cafe?!) and the Nimbu Soda - both were let-downs.
What's My Pro Tip?
Try to go when lunch hour is winding down; there's better chances of finding parking, plus service will be way faster. Also, if you go during lunch and not dinner, you'll probably find that the biryani is way more fresh.
Not a Chettinad Chicken fan? Get your hands on their delicious mutton fry.
