I have been dining in Palmgrove's Menaka restaurant for past 40 yearss. The restaurant ambience, staff, and the vegetarian food have retained their excellent quality until today. Absolutely the best idli+vadai+chutney+sambhar in Madras, period. Parking is available too, a rarity in town these days. Try the rava upma also. This hotel preserves its 'old world' charm very well, in every... More

Stayed here for 2 days for US visa process. Only good thing is location convenience and quality of food (not about price though). Rooms are good with old charm so don't expect any modern amenities. Avg. rooms for the mentioned price range. Staff are courteous and helpful. Overall Ok experience.

Stayed here for a night when i was on a business trip. Centrally located, very close to US embassy, not far from main markets. Rooms are big, bathrooms are very well maintained. Comfortable stay. Old property, so do not expect too much luxury in terms of stay. Staff well behaved. Big advantage is they take 24hrs for checkout, not normal... More
