Anise, Taj Coromandel’s all day dining option can be a let-down, when judged in the light of its outstanding neighbors - Prego and Golden Dragon. The buffet spread is just about acceptable, but the made-to-order dishes are below par. Anise, however, is best known for late night or early morning Biryani cravings - their 'Gosht Gilli Biryani', is regarded as one of the best in the biryani-crazy Chennai.
The beauty of all day dining restaurant is that no matter what time your hunger pangs hits you, all you have to do is drive down and you will be gloriously fed. You don’t have to bother with reservations or stand in a queue waiting for your table like at standalone restaurants. At 24/7 places there is always a table vacant in dark hours of the night. The staff is always on alert too no matter how late it is and never fails to give a smooth yet prompt service. Chennai has a strong tourist trade all year round which is why there are so many great luxurious hotels dotted all over the map, including the very famous Taj Coromandel in Nungambakkam area.
