QT Grills, Chennai

Norms are meant to be altered and true to the statement, we did just that. First came desserts, in the form of Eclairs [link to post] at Marriott and then came food. We were done at Marriott and hunger still lingered. So, a discussion on where to go, the new places around town we hadn’t tried and we pulled out our phones looking for addresses and reviews.  The 5 of us then hopped into a car, and headed towards Adyar, looking for Naidu Hall [that was the landmark given for this restaurant]. Where were we headed? QT Grills.

The place is tucked away in the building right next to Naihaa in the Adyar Service lane [along the Odyssey stretch]. I noticed there were quite a few other offices in the building. The name board was bright and bold- “QT Grill, United Taste of America”.. We walked in, saw the small place, the red sofas and the red décor and commented on how they had tried to replicate the American diner look and feel. 

The menu was attacked with vigor, read and researched. I was the only vegetarian in the gang. We decided to order 3 dishes and split them. The dishes ordered were The Cheese Burger [ Cheese version of the hamburger] and BBQ Beef Burger. I also chose a burger, but then changed my mind and went for the “Garden Medallion” [it was listed under the steak section].

 They have a small yet decent range of dishes under each category- salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, desserts and beverages.  

First came the BBQ beef burger, soon came the other Cheese burger. I began nibbling on the fries and the coleslaw served along the burgers while I waited for mine. And then came the waiter bearing a plate that had quite a bit of food on it and thus arrived my Garden Medallion. It was one gigantic vegetable patty sitting on a bed of mashed potato served with a side of sautéd vegetables [which was just divine], a hot dinner roll and the most amazing sauce ever. Even though it was an overdose of potato, it was delicious, everyone tried and loved it.

We were done, full and happy. Thus began the wait for the check, which was quite a surprise. It had worked out to Rs 571. We stared at each other, stared at the bill and sighed that it was total value for money. A place that dint stand out in appearance, but that worked well in terms of food & prices~!!

The reviews posted on this blog are based on my personal experience. Also remember that restaurants and eat outs sometimes change with time, so does their food and service. So, kindly consider these factors while visiting the places. Remember, no two palates are the same. Bon Appétit  :-)
