I would actually come back to this place even though its little far from chennai city.
Food is surprisingly good. Applying regular restaurant standard, I'd still give it four stars because it really deserves it.
Maybe we're just lucky, or maybe the Ode cafe location happens to have a good chef, but they were both perfectly done. The desserts were amazing too.
Service is professional but warm, but we happened to have a slow waiter who was paying too much attention to a table full of young.
The ambience is "trying" hard to be Caribbean cool, but just like Tommy Bahama style of clothing, it's more like a mix of Hawaiian/Souther Cal. Layout is great though - you don't really feel you're in a large restuarant.
It's on the expensive side (like the clothes), but not overly so. Given the quality of food and even their coffee and tea (Mighty Leaf, in case you're wondering), the value is not great but quite acceptable.
