The decor is in the color of orange and yellow symbolizing pumpkins and it hence goes by the name – ‘Pumpkin Tales’. The ambiance is a bit bright and classy, a very suitable place to have a peaceful dinner with your family. Parking would never be a problem as there is sufficient parking space for both two wheeler and four wheeler in the ground floor.
The service is very flexible and pleasing. They keep checking on you if the food is good enough as per the expectations. The bakery is located in the ground floor, the dine-in restaurant in the first floor and the restrooms in the third. The semi-open kitchen keeps a check on their hygiene level.
Their classic ‘Pumpkin soup’ is a mainstream way to start off the meal in this restaurant. You also have tacos available if you have been searching for authentic tacos in Chennai. The American breakfast in pumpkin tales should not be missed. They try to pick organic and safe ingredients as much as they can and all the eggs used are free-range from happy hens fed naturally. You can also notice the server of any allergies or dietary conditions. And what’s more? They also serve vegan food.
The Wonton Chicken Soup is a treat for non vegetarians. The tofu based dishes is a must try in pumpkin tales. The vegan possible sweet potato corn cakes are just yummy. Harissa chicken wings served with Harissa mayo is just a tenderly delight. Their newly launched variances in chicken rice is something to look out for.
The desserts needs a special mention. The chocolate mousse priced at 150 is a steal deal. The carrot cake looks different and tastes delicious. Vegan cakes and tiramisu completes it all.
Pumpkin Tales in Alwarpet serves the specialities of Singaporean, European, Continental cuisines. Bright colourful chairs in a big hall, sofa’s at the corners & music at the background. PUMPKIN SOUP was a great start since it was nicely creamy with an hint of coconut milk added to crunchy pumpkin seeds. Taco’s are slowly picking up in Chennai not many places offer that now, basically a Chappathi / Roti stuffed, here it was PRAWNS and AVOCADO went really well with the dips. Haven’t had Avacado in a dish before also Non fried Prawns added a great taste to this one. CHORIZO SAUSAGE, the Bacon was flavorful but very hard to bite. SINGAPORE LAKSA in main course, a huge quantity of soupy noodles, soft pieces of Chicken added to coconut milk, hint of masala’s was worth the order for two people. 4 dishes at 1500 ₹ with an almost satisfying meal and a lot of interesting dishes to explore was the feeling this place left us with.
