The bar has a lively ambience and an eclectic décor that elevates whole experience. A decent place to relax with exotic liquors and some versatile dishes to choose from. The Japanese spring roll here is a must-try dish as it is awfully light and savoury with thinly sliced and sautéed fresh vegetables inside. It is served with a sweet and sour sauce. Red meat lovers should try the mutton ularthiyadhu where the tender mutton is cooked in dry spices and infused with the fragrance of curry leaves.
Dining out has become almost a luxury. After paying what is, a hefty bill you end up paying a substantial tax too, which kind of breaks your back. Chennai is a metropolitan city that has its share of attractive gastronomy, a pleasure that comes with a pricey bill. You may end up compromising on quality or stick to the budget-friendly places that takes care of your pockets. Out of all the pocket-friendly restaurants, we have a special fondness for ‘Zero Degrees’ which is part of Gokulam Park Sabari hotel in Navallur area. The hotel is located on the busy OMR route, a place already dotted with numerous trendy restaurants and pubs. This little gastro-pub is quite popular with the local bar hopping crowd, due to its budget-friendly factor and a sensational varied menu.
The place is especially famous with the student or college going crowd, who finds the place fits nicely in their budget. The gastro-pub is frequented by corporates or large group of diners too. Partying in Chennai is expensive, so opting for budget-friendly places like Zero Degrees in not only wise but clever too. Décor wise, Zero Degrees carries stylish signature all over the room. To make the place more eye-catching they have included attractive features. The look is very modern and striking. A row of comfy sofas runs parallel to the wall for you to recline in. If you are alone, sit at the bar to witness the bar tricks closely. Décor is edgy, contemporary, stylish and eye-catching. It may not be very stunning but it does make up for the lack in elegance through its menu.
Zero Degrees keeps a decent and satisfying menu that stocks on booze of good repute. Various brands of beer, rum, gin, vodka, brandy, whisky and shots are available, including a mean selection of cocktails that are bound to make you swoon in delight. Let the bartender whip you up a killer drink before you tackle the food menu. The appetizers section is a plethora of yummy bites, to add a salty punch to the already tasty drink.
