I am basically from Bangalore. I come to visit Chennai very often as my fiance stays there. By nature I am a hardcore foodie. I visited this restaurant last week for the first time. The ambiance is very pleasant and friendly with good English music. The Staff too our very courteous, friendly and fluent in English. Coming to the food, well this is undoubtedly the best I have tasted in Chennai. At first I ordered the Crab meat soup, being a big fan of crab it was certainly delicious, for starters we ordered lobster Singapore, well the entire way the dish was set up was mouth watering, you could see the attached image to get an Idea, though it was slightly sweetish it was still delicious. Then we ordered the prawn Biriyani, well the prawns were so fresh that it felt as if they just caught it. I loved the food so much that I went there the following week, this time I ordered the Atukal Soup (mutton leg soup) which again was out of the world and we tried the Mutton Raan Mundi, which again was unique and delicious, the portions was so much that we parceled the remaining food and had it for dinner too. If your a hardcore non vegetarian you must try these dishes and do visit this awesome restaurant
Great food...Average ambiance... Average service.. Had half Lebanese grilled chicken for starter and for main course butter naan , ginger chicken gravy and dijaj kapsa. All the food we ordered had portions for 3 and had real good taste and flavor (2 person) was billed Rs.760 inc taxes..
the palmshore is where i prefer everyone who loves arabic food...it has every blend of arabian taste with great service.... the ambiance and everything is really great...come with your friends or family...you will never be disappointed...
well......Palmshore....the only restro I prefer while having a home delivery....so if you are staying nearby Santhome area.....you only need to depend on it......the nearby Lousy City Centre restros are of no use (they don't deliver foods)......so with only one option left for quality and 'cooked with good oil' food.
All the dishes almost tastes good.......and the same (mostly the same masalas....except Arabian or Chinese).........but ambience is sound good......and the service is excellent......in case of service...you may say.....they are the best I found in Chennai.......comfortable....though.....you need to wait outside in weekeneds to get seats there......the arabian foods are good enough (maybe better)......and ya....that's it
This restaurant is probably one of the worst places to eat in Chennai. We went there tonight when they were serving "Ramadan Specials", which consisted of Haleem and Mutton Samosas. The person who cooked up the Haleem and Samosas, probably had not eaten or even seem them in his life. What passed for Haleem was a yellow gooey mixture of rice, lentils and solid pieces of mutton, while the Samosas felt more like leftovers wrapped in flour and fried. They also served barbecued chicken that was literally rotting in the plates.
Avoid this place like the plague.
I am going to complain to the health inspector since the food served was obviously decaying.
Had dinner here few days back. Shawarma was good. They have stuck American Express card stickers everywhere. But didn't accept it saying the card machine is not working. The service was not good. The waiter was serious throughout the time I had dinner and couldn't suggest food. Would have given 4 stars otherwise.
I went to the Palmshore last week for the first time and I will definitely be going back. Not a trendy exciting place but very clean with good service and a comfortable atmosphere.
I had the Tom yum Soup and the Shwarma plate. Something without mustard seed for a change. Both were competently made at a fair price. The chicken had a great flavor and it was well presented with some humus, bread and chilis.
I went to this restaurant today and ordered 2 plates of Irani Chicken Tikka along with a soup and a drink. I have tried Irani Chicken Tikka in Palmshore - Spencer's and I found it good. So, I ordered 2 plates of Irani Chicken Tikka and I found it uneatable. I wonder whether it was authentic chicken flesh in the first place. Moreover, the pieces were burnt on one side. I asked the Manager about the burnt surface and he took the plate and removed the burnt layer in the pieces and gave it back to me. Chicken Tikka is seldom breaded. Even the Irani Chicken Tikka in Palmshore - Spencer's was never breaded. The chicken I had it over here today had a thick brown layer and I don't know what it was suppose to be. This was the worst Chicken Tikka I ever had.
I will never ever go to any of the Palmshore outlets and I will give a negative review about this restaurant to people whom I know.
I went to the restaurant in Escape Cinemas - Express Avenue on the same day and I ate Chicken Tikka which is sold for the same 160 INR. It was awesome. Concerned guys in Palmshore should make a trip to this place to know how a Chicken Tikka is supposed to be made.
I can understand people in Palmshore want to make money at the end of the day but that should not be accomplished by robbing the customers.
No a bad place for Showermaa, grilled chicken etc. Pretty reasonable prices and decent quantity. Take the showermaa plate instead of the roll, you get more stuff then. Like I said, there are better arabic joints in town, but this is not bad either.
