Second visit, post a decent 1st experience. Will not recommend. The staff messed up the order. We had made them repeat the order, knowing that the person taking the order was not comfortable with neither English or local Language. We had asked for regular water and were served water in glass bottles. We presumed that it was regular water and... More

Before I reached the hotel the terrible traffic congestion on Anna Salai made me decide I'll never go there again, but my evening turned out quite nice once I reached! Surprisingly the weather was great and there was a pleasant breeze in the open air restaurant! Helpful friendly waiters, great ambiance, good company and good food made it a pleasant... More

I was staying in the hotel and decided to have a late dinner at the restaurant. Cannot imagine that we got a north Indian restaurant in Chennai which is better than most good restaurants in north India. Excellent ambience and we were lucky to have greta weather on the daty

We had a late dinner at Up North as we stayed in the Rain Tree, Anna Salai. The steward suggested us to try their "Lassi" as a drink before the main course. I was a little skeptical but still I ordered as my wife loves lassi during any time of the day. Believe me! They serve the best "lassi" in... More

Nice rooftop location in the center of the city. I find the sports projections disturbing in a restaurant. Range of food is rather international, nice variety. Service is a bit chaotic/slow. Level of English could be improved.

Had a yet another breezy dinner at the restaurant, service was good and ambiance great. Food was hot and quick but Saag (Mustard leaf vegetable) was a letdown. Can’t call it authentic, the veggie was not even tempered with customary garlic in mustard oil. It tasted bland. It’s time our chef does some authenticity check. The traditional accompaniments – white... More
