Renowned as one of the most popular tourist destinations in India & the heart of Tamil Nadu, the coastal city of Chennai is replete with numerous extravagant eateries luring foodies from far and wide. In fact, this unique city’s biggest gastronomic achievement by far is its diverse culinary landscape featuring a flurry of the most decadent restaurants. And on one of our explorations of the city’s dining venues, we finally struck gold & found one such delightful restaurant- Savya Rasa. This place owns the city’s foodies' hearts with an unparalleled gastronomic experience & we totally understand why.
Located in Kotturpuram, Savya Rasa takes you on a journey of the real South India through its authentic flavors. The entire restaurant has a charm of an old-world South Indian home. The dining experience is completed by a cultural ambiance of understated luxury comprising art, vintage artifacts, architectural elements, and music — all combined meaningfully. The pillars, door frames and windows are inspired by Chettinad style too.
The interior of the place is mesmerizing and sets the tone for an equally appealing dining experience that is to follow. The restaurant curates an exceptional menu that houses quintessentially South Indian recipes. The most popular dishes of Savya Rasa include lip-smacking classics like 'Mutton Kola', 'Paniyaram', 'Appam', 'Elaneer Payasam', 'Nandu Rasam soup' & 'Coin Parotta with Chettinad Mutton Gravy'.
Start off your gastronomic journey at Savya Rasa by gorging on their range of delicious appetizers like 'Paneer Ghee Roast', 'Kuzhi Paniyaram', and 'Koon Ularthiyathu'.
For mains, we suggest you go with luscious and authentically south Indian delicacies like 'Ulli Theeyal', 'Kootu Curry', 'Gongura Pappu', and 'Meen Manga Curry'.
Savya Rasa also features a lineup of really toothsome desserts that you’ve got to try for a wholesome dining experience. Our top three picks from their curation include decadent indulgences like 'Elaneer Payasam', 'Ambalapuzha Pal Payasam', and 'Karuppatti Halwa'.
The cost of dining compared with the size of the portions that you get is completely justifiable, rather totally value for money we would say! The staff here is polite & prompt with recommendations. If you are a foodie who is forever enthralled with the idea of gorging on authentic South Indian delicacies, then Savya Rasa is definitely the place that should be on your bucket list!
