Whenever I visit Chennai, I never miss to go to BUHARI hotel, this doesn’t happens now but I use to visit this hotel right from my childhood. I and my grand fa, would go there sometime around evening and have dinner, later pack food for our grand ma. My grandfa loves to have their String hoppers and Paya (lamb leg curry).

Recently last week, we visited Chennai for my cousin’s marriage and later visited Hotel Buhari, Mount Road, and Chennai for our dinner. The restaurant was known for is simple and decent ambiance. The restaurant would be were crowded on weekends, since we visited on a week day there was no crowd and also we had a good time.

First of all we were served with Grape Juice, which was very delicious. We ordered for String hoppers, Paya (lamb leg curry), Buhari’s Ranjini Egg Parotta, Appam, Chicken 90 and fresh lime soda. As we had chicken 65 several times, this time tried out Chicken 90.

Since we were with kids we ordered for Plain paya which was good, delicious, aromatic and attractive. So never miss Hotel BUHARI. There are few branches all over Chennai, we visited the one in Mount Road, Chennai.
