Restaurant Review - The Square

Part 1: About the Restaurant

Novotel Chennai Sipcot - The Square Restaurant is hosting #FlavoursOfKeralafood festival which commenced yesterday and will go on until the 31st of July. It is located bang on the main road in Siruseri - SIPCOT.

It has ample parking facility for 2/4 wheelers.

You will never feel the busyness of the brimming city outside.

The theme is attractive. It makes you feel as if you have visited Kerala. Meticulous planning has gone into it.

Staffs were very helpful and friendly. I met few Managers - Restaurant/Floor/Operations apart from Chef who has come from Kerala and the Executive Chef.

Perfection is the apt name for the set up. Here are some of the clicks from the restaurant

Part 2 - About the Food!!
I was here this noon with my sis. We were presented with wide range of buffet for the #FlavoursOfKerala festival at #TheSquare

We were given a welcome drink to start with.

What were served?

I have given the list of food that we’re being served in the same order:

Welcome Drink
Fish Soup

This was followed by Buffet. I had a chance to taste upon all of them (in very less quantities though as the number of items were huge)

Fish Biryani
Kadalai Curry
Red Rice
Fish Gravy
Kozhi Chuttathu
Pazham Pradhaman
Semiya Payasam
Mophal Chemmeen
Varuthatacha Mutton Curry
Jeera Rice
Kadai Paneer
Pumpkin Erissery
Mix Vegetables Thoren
Vendakkai Masala Curry
Various Desserts
Ice Cream - Vannila, Strawberry & Chocolate

What is special about this food festival?

They have recreated the Keralite cuisine to its perfection as they have flew their Kerala property Chef to this place.

We could sense the flavour of Keraka by the way the food was prepared and the ingredients were used.
Do not miss to sip on the Goli Soda which has flavours of Lemon, Lemon & Ginger and Paneer.
I would personally recommend Fish Biryani, Chemmeen, Pazham Pradhaman and Fish Soup and Appam.

I would liek to highlight about Appam here. The batter is mixed with coconut milk and sugar and hence they do not serve it separately. You can have it plain(as it is). I found it innovative.

Try it!! I bet, You’ll surely be falling in love with it.

Note: They also have a Selfie Contest wherein the winner will get to stay in the property for a day for FREE! Do not forget to check it out, when you are there.
