I had a nice south meal on 22nd April. The food was extremely good and I would rate this food quality 5 out of 5. If you like a Madras meal with sambar, kootu, poriyal, rasam, appalam, etc. just go to Maris Hotel for Lunch.

The taste remains etched in memory. The sambhar, vegetables, vatha kozhambu and everything was too tasty to describe. Will definitely want you to go back

we began our Chennai experience with a nice lunch at this hotel. It was very interesting to taste the local cuisine beginning with food being served on a banana leaf - with various small veg dishes full of Tamil Nadu delicacies. We loved it.

I went to the "permit room" as its called. It's a vegetarian bar. Very basic in decor and ambience. They continuously bring u snacks. Full of regulars or so I assume. A very boys or should one say mans place. An experience worth ur while

One of the oldest place serving food, is completely no frills, old school look and feel of eating food. Everything is from the Raj era - the tables, the waiters, the experience is completely non-hurried. Serves budget meals if you have no other option.
