Had been to paati veedu recently. Located at the heart of the city this place is very easy to access. We had warm welcome at the entrance and were placed in the outer arena. Initially they offered butter milk and varieties of welcome drink which includes watermelon juice, orange juice etc. . After completion of welcome drink we had been invited inside the hotel. The ambiance resembles karaikudi style. We could see beautiful paintings of old Chennai on the wall along with beautiful vintage lanterns.
Food is being served as seven courses. The hospitality inside the hotel is too good.
First course – Four types of juices.
Second course – salads and sprouts
Third course – chips and fry um
Fourth course – snacks like paniyaram, vada.
Fifth course – Mini tiffen includes idiyappam, uthappam.
Sixth course – main course includes rice and Roti’s with side dishes.
Seventh course – 3 varieties of sweets.
Last ended with nuts and beetle leaves in a traditional box .
Main highlight of the place is that each and every dish is cooked in a traditional and nutritional way. A must visit place for all sorts of people and veg. Lovers.
One definitely has to experience the food here to know how divine it was. Vegetarian food with a touch of Grandmothers love as the name says ‘Paati Veedu’ at its best. The service makes you want to visit this place again and again – so warm and courteous. The interiors are spacious beautifully done. They even have an outdoor seating space with thinnai, rocking chairs and a lot of 80’s – 90’s games like pallanguzhi, paramapadham, and lots more. With regard to the food, we opted the sit down buffet priced approx ₹950/- per head. We booked our table via Dine Out App during the GIRF so we saved almost 50% of the total bill. (Bill attached in the pictures) Our dining was more of a ‘little things that matter’ concept! From starters to dessert and beverages, every thing was served in tiny portions sure to make you feel full at the end of the meal. For the welcome drink, we had : Muskmelon, Beetroot & Ginger Lemon Juice! No preservatives, No sugar – Healthy eating feels! 😋 For the starters, Vazhaipoo Vadai, Sambar Vadai, Karamani Sunday – all tiny portions and also, did I mention it’s unlimited! Here comes the first main course – Masala Dosa, Lemon Sevai with 3 side dish – Sambar, Chutney, Boondi Raita – I had to ask for the Boondi Raita thrice 🤤 Second set of main course and I’m almost full. My plate looks like it’s just filled with happiness – Poori, Pongal, Vathakuzhambu sadham and 5 varities of side dish *loud burp* 😂 Being at such an authentic south Indian restaurant, how can we miss Thayir Sadham with Mor Molaga 🤤 here’s more reasons why I will visit this place again n again! 💕 Ahh! How long it’s been since I had authentic south indian dessert and snacks!Palkova – I had to refill it twice again, gulab jamun my love, wheat halwa just melted in my mouth and seedai! 😍 I’m more of a chai person than a coffee person. I’ve had coffee only handful of times in my entire life and after having this filter coffee, I think I might get addicted to caffeine! Vetrilai, Sunnambu and Paaku for the finishing touch! 👏 Overall, I personally had an amazing experience, more of a royal dining experience. The staffs treat you with utmost care and courtesy. We paid ₹990/- for two which is a killer deal. All thanks to the GIRF! Paati Veedu – A royal dining experience!
If you like authentic south Indian cuisine this place is best for you. They provide good hygiene food including Homam rasam, beetroot juice and i can’t find any masala in the food. Ambience was good. They used to place little food on your plate and if you want more to taste based on your request they will provide you more on each dish ( To prevent wastage of food I guess ). Price looks hefty but quality was good and suits for adult people and people who likes to try something new.
Nice place to get along with family and have traditional food.
