Very quite, away from the crowd on mount road. A perfect place you can have a conversation with a person. Good food, better service would be appreciated.

Having been to Chennai a lot I didn't think there were that many restaurants left to discover, until I found Amethyst whilst reading British Airways' High Life magazine. Hidden away, or at least as hidden as you can be in the shadow of Express Avenue, is this garden oasis that features a cafe with a garden facing veranda, bakery, florist... More
