As i walked into the regale restaurant which had a pretty small welcoming door I imagined a cozy little place... surprise surprise..it was quite a big one.
Regale in velachery main road[close to castrol bikezone] can seat around 100+ people and the ambience was really good.The interiors were pleasant and kitchen almost out of sight[hate the ones which make us pass thru or sit across kitchens].
The waiters were well-groomed, really polite and friendly. Orders were taken pronto and the delivery of food to table was also quick,compared to the other restaurants i have been in velachery.
Though the waiters were good and friendly they had language issues,I could see many of the non-tamil customers struggling to interact.I myself had a slip, had asked for a less spicy soup,sadly the 'less' word did not register with the waiter and I ended up gulping down more water than the spicy soup.
The food was good, surely not 'intercontinental' variety as they claim. More of chettinad kinds. Even the north indian chicken gravies ordered had a distinct chettinad tinge.
The quantity and quality were as good as we can get in any mid-range restaurant.Pricing too was upto the normal mark, soups costing 80-95 and gravies in the 130+ bracket.The roti was too light but the butter naan was really good.
They had listed out some seafood in the menu but I did not have the apetite to test them out.The one major sour point was lack of hand bowls.The wash area was pretty far off and need to take a stroll.
Overall a good restaurant especially if you are going with family/friends.
