  • Do try some variety: Tamil, Kerala preparations work the best (such as the 'Red Snapper' or 'Karimeen in a Mango Curry' and 'Tawa Fry') followed by tandoori (try 'Jumbo Prawns') and (desi) Chinese
  • Lap it up with a fragrant 'Ghee Rice' or 'Parottas'
  • You would not regret skipping the French Loaf sourced dessert or the cloying 'Dulce De Leche'

Amit Speaks

4.2 /5

In a city which boasts of the longest urban beach in India, speciality seafood restaurants are conspicuously hard to come by. Inspired by our eponymous beach, The Marina makes a serious contention in the category. An endearing proposition from M Mahadevan, the eatery showcases a compelling attempt at responsible restaureurism – their seafood is sourced from ‘adopted’ villages along the Coromandel coast (Tuticorin, Kovalam), where fisher folks are encouraged to fish sustainably. Responsible sourcing aside, the Marina makes seafood dining an engaging experience – a centerpiece seafood counter is the hub of activity; you pick your catch and pay by weight. The chefs and many people of the staff are from Odisha. If you are fond of the Odia (even Bengali) style of cooking, you will have fair luck requesting the chef for something off-menu. The first floor is only set up when the lower section packs up; usually over the weekend. I like the look of Marina at night, with bright lights contrasting against muted walls for slick sophistication.

About Marina, Nungambakkam, Chennai

As most geography buffs know, Chennai is blessed with one of the longest urban beach in India. The superb coastal line makes some serious contribution towards the provision of delicious seafood produce. The bounty is then taken and prepared with mean skills of the local chefs. Tourists and locals both enjoy the seafood preparations at their best which has given the city an exceptional reputation. Even after such abundant bounty pure seafood restaurants are hard to come by where the gorgeous fare is simply celebrated. But with ‘Marina’ things takes a promising turn. The restaurant is one of those places where seafood is their forte and for that particular reason it’s so popular. Located at the college road in Nungambakkam, the restaurant is a tremendous favourite of the local families and foodies. Tourists adore this place and makes it a point of dining here when visiting.
