True to its name, this restaurant has a ‘bare all’ décor. The plain brick walls adorned with beautiful images from the Italian Riviera, retro-styled furniture and exclusive lamps add to the charm. The chicken fillet burger here has a succulent pan seared chicken fillet topped with tomatoes, crunchy lettuce and zesty mustard mayonnaise in sesame seeds bun. Drumsticks lovers must-try the murungakai mallisaru which has fresh drumsticks cooked with lentil and secret spices from South India in a dhaniya infused in stock.
