If the relatives are in town and you need to serve an entire village at night, look no further. Drive to Mathsya in Egmore or simply give them a call to Indulge in some real South Indian goodness. This is paradise for all your herbivorous friends as they even serve some veg tandoori specialties during the weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). The Golconda biriyani, bread peas masala, bournvita and dosas are highly recommended. Their mini fried idlis are simply exquisite. It only gets better when you get to dine in post midnight with your family or friends. Don’t let the time fool you, as it’s not easy to get a table here, even at these late hours.
