Sparky's WAS a great place to eat. We ate there several times. They made a great effort to have all kinds of foods. UNFORTUNATELY the owner died last year and his family left India. Closed permanently. So sad.

Was probably one of, if not THE best Authentic American restaurants in Chennai. Brilliant food, Excellent service and nice prices with a lot of 'Theme days'. Unfortunately, shut down as the owners moved back to the US in late 2011.

The ambience here should please ex pats: walls are decorated with registration plates, football and baseball mementos, and American rock n roll plays nonstop. The food is good, even if a few dishes were a liitle overcooked and dry. We particularly enjoyed the fried zucchini...More
