Buildings all around lit up and
you get a 360degree view of the city..
….paints quite the picture right? Well this is what you get if you head up to the Rooftop Lounge at Ramada Plaza Chennai in Guindy.. [For those who did not know, Chennai has 2 Ramada properties, one in Egmore- Ramada Chennai Egmore and this is the 2nd one]
The very first time I visited this property was in March 2018, when someone I knew was visiting the city on work. We had dined at the Pan asian restaurant they had and it was fabulous- the food and service! I was seriously blown away by the flavours.. And so when I heard they had a new rooftop restaurant, it was time for a visit.
Those who have been to chennai, know that it is pretty much hot hotter and hottest, but Nov to Feb end, maybe March 1st week the weather is fabulous.. We enjoy the cool pleasant low temperatures!! And so walking up to the Rooftop Lounge on that cool Feb evening I was in love with my city all over again. They have a huge outdoor sitting area, with a cover, the infinity swimming pool right next to the space, and also closed cabanas a few steps below along with a small well stocked bar. The cabanas have two tables or you can use them for a small group dinner as well. Each one is like a separate room with a glass door, which gives you the privacy you need and shuts outside noise.
We chose a table near the pool, enjoyed the cool breeze while we waited for the food to arrive. I chose to have a Long island iced tea,while my friend chose a Mocktail, litchi & guava blended- which was actually good. As for the food, the pictures should speak volumes. The soup, the salad were the show stoppers for me. Chef Pawan Kumar, who hails from Ranchi told us how they played around with flavours, combinations before settling on this menu. The only thing missing from the menu are pizza and pastas, but then the rest of the menu makes up for it, if the dishes that we tried were any indication of the quality of the food.
The mango spicy spring cigars were quite delicious, one that I havent had before. Similarly, the meal platter is perfect [esp the portion size].. The only suggestion we had was to replace the chocolate swirl in the dessert with maybe a Jalebi or something indian that would go well with the Rabri and chenna.
A meal for 2 would work out to around Rs3000/- [not incl alcohol] , but then make sure you head here either before March or post August…
