Chennai is a multi-cutural, multi-lingual and a secular city. But what Chennai also is, is a city that loves food from all over the world and loves to accept new restaurants into their lives on a regular basis. While other metros in the country have a large collection of restaurants by award winning chefs and all the important people are seen there, Chennai has great restaurants by new and talented chefs who want to showcase their skills to their hometown or just introduce people to new foods.
