Stay and Food

Chennai has hotels and restaurants across all tiers. Parry’s Corner and surrounding areas have good new restaurants including a few old ones like Shankar Cafe. There are several small eateries in the narrow lanes doling out delectable snacks throughout the day, but care has to be taken in selecting the shops.
