Dindigul Thalappakatti-Restaurant Review


Food is the biggest asset of chennai,U name it,they have it.Chennai is the most multi-cultured city ,next to bangalore...For every ten steps,there is a chat shop.Like infinity tea stalls,there are biryani stalls and kaiyethi  bhavans...From Mexican to udipi,the city is so versatile and became foodie's best paradise...

Ten years back,South indians dont eat outside food ,not even in weddings they attend...But now,It is must to eat which is more affordable and tasty too...

People have changed a lot...So ,here I am..Ready to give Restaurant reviews in chennai...I will be strict,not going to compromise for any reason....But,It doesn't mean I am going to hate all the places i visit :-P

    My First (controversial) place is Dindugal Thalappakatti(3 star nonveg restaurant) ,Which opened a year ago in Annanagar.Chennai got loads of Thalapakattu biryani (francised )stalls in almost every single km....This restuarant took legal rights on naming their biryani on stalls.....


It is a big question whts in the name?..People going to come back only if the food tastes good.The Thalappakatti won the case and also people's heart with their good culinary skills

The restaurant is crowded like a theater in weekends...It took almost an hour to get a seat....That doesnt stop me being there,thrice .My most favourite dishes are Karimeen Porichathu,Thalappakatti Chicken curry and their biryani



Usually,we never order biryani ,because most of the hotels got bland biryani in chennai....But here,worth a try...Its made with jeera rice and ghee....The quantity is far enough for single person,served with onion raita,thalsa and kurma..


We tried the south indian mutton soup which tasted like my pepper rasam


We ordered for Tandoori platter which sounds too much for two and all rounder
It had Tandoori chicken,Chicken tikka,fish tikka,Malai kebab,Tangri kebab,green prawn kebab and also had some mutton kebab...The mutton kebab tasted funny(Sounds weird as such...kebab with mutton pieces??!!) and also the malai kebab is not as tasty as the rest...Loved the fish tikka and Tangri Chicken...


They had jigarthanda served in small glass ,luked like some mocktail,but tasted yummy...My daughter didnt eat anything,so we ordered for icecream which was also good...People loved their icecreams and milkshakes...but not the fruits and fruit juices....Might not be too fresh...Cleanliness and Ambiance were crown of  the place...Serving time was short ,except for desserts..

About the Menucard....
The Menu has got completely different options ,they dont have regular south indian nonveg dishes,as every chettinad restaurants copies.....For example,Chicken Idichu Varutha curry,Karandi Omlette and Scrambed egg liver fry...My cousin told they have excellent mutton side dishes,while i loved their karimeen... 


At the end they served Sweetened Jeera and the Pakku goes missing,which is our tradition :(   The bill came around six hundred with taxes.....



Overall I rank this thalapakattu , four out of  five...
