Friends Restaurant is a good place for non-veg lunch (Biriyani only on Sundays)..Full meals with gravies of chicken, mutton, fish and side dish of these (any one) in any form (fry or gravy or grill) is a must for meals..cooked in mud vessels..tasty Chettinad cuisine..best is Chettinad chicken or vanjiram fish fry..a/c or non-a/c, service is very courteous..

Must try restaurant when you visit Karaikudi. Reasonable price, quantity and good taste. We bought parotta, kadai fry, pepper chicken, etc. Kadai fry was totally yum.

Someone suggested this place saying that the recepies are good and tasty. However, when we dined here for the lunch by ordering meals and fish curry, we found the same to be of average quality. The only pleasing thing is the dishes are said to be cooked in earthen wares.

We had heard so much about this restaurant serving chettinad food. When we went to have the food there we found that it was definitely not excellent as we had heard about. It is very ordinary and would definitely not wish to visit it again.

We had a very good lunch. The selected items came almost immediately. The service was excellent. Though spicy, it was within limits. Wish to go for this.
