Ponnusamy has been serving up delicious Non Veg Chettinad food for a long time. We were staying nearby in a hotel and one of the locals urged us to tryout this place. The variety, quality and quantity (and even the cost surprised me). Ponnusamy is one of the most reasonable places I have been too. The Chicken Dishes were delicious, especially this peppery chicken (I don't exactly recollect the name) was quite yummy. The turkey biryani was an interesting thing. Even the lamb is a must try. overall good authentic food at good rate. Thanks Ponnusamy for a delicious experience.

As a veg person, I will not prefer to go here. The veg food though was having good taste but the smell ruins the mood.

The restaurant was recommended by a friend who ate there previously and we have no regrets. The food especially their chicken and mutton briyani was delicious together with the fish we ordered.
Overall we feel its a must visit eatery in Chennai and we noticed some Japanese tourist were also dining there so the food speaks for itself.

Let me make a few things clear first ..... I didn't try their Biryani or the Brainfry which I understand are their USPs ..... They had run out of lamb brains..... understandable since one lamb has only one brain and it's not a not a huge mass of meat either, they also have Rabbit meat on Menu ......which i have never dared to try in my life.....so far
Ponnusamy is a chain with 9 outlets in Chennai and a few outside India too..... I opted for the Sholingnallur branch solely for the reason that it is nearest to my office at Siruseri. I started my preferred way ..... starting with Non-vegetarian Thali ..... Don't be fooled by the name .... it is only a teaser with bowls of Chicken, Mutton and Fish curries(No trace of meat) .....rice and the usual Samabar Rasama and chutnies that come along with any south Indian thali..... The non-vegetarian dishes(with Meat) need to be ordered separately..... I tried the Chettinad Mutton chilly fry ...... mentioned as "Quarter" on the Menu and aptly enough for a single stomach..... little chunks of boneless mutton rolled over in pepper ...soft and subtly spiced .... the second was Nethili fry ....... Nethili is a tiny Anchovies like fish, tinier than the Belonji(Silver fish) ..... It was deep fried served in quite sizeable quantity ... crisp and to be popped up in the mouth .... wholly without the need to separate out bones .....Fish curry had a tangy and distinct taste ......and I couldn't resist from begging for an extra bowl of it ...... Ambience is just fine .....wasn't overcrowded as I read and expected

Ponnusamy is my father's name and every time we visited Chennai we will go to one of their restaurants.
As always, the food is very good and you get the authentic south Indian food with varieties here.
The place is clean and service is very good.
