Dine at thematic Restaurants in Chennai

Theme Restaurants in Chennai:

The whole idea of just cooking a dish and serving on a platter is considered to be either outdated or too homely. With shows like Masterchef and exclusive food channels emphasising on dining as a journey or as an experience, the ambiance matters a lot. With a lot of restaurants having similar cuisines or menus on board, the need to create a difference in the customer experience, has led to a series of whacky theme restaurants in Chennai. So, what’s the wait for? All aboard the chow chow train!!
