Downtown Cafe

This place in Besant Nagar, Chennai is relatively new and we headed to this place for a late lunch. This place welcomes you to place solely decorated with plain wood chairs and tables and the walls are also adorned by wooden slabs, there are light bulbs expanded from the ceiling which adds a perfect glow to the whole ambiance to the place. Since it was a weekday and non-lunch hours the crowd was less which let us dine royally on a six seater πŸ™‚

Their menu has a wide, wide and wide range of beverages from hot coffee to ice cream shakes, fresh juices, milk shakes, a wide range of teas, smoothies, and many more that you wonder if they have a food menu! But we wanted FooD!!

We settled for chicken sizzler, a DT chicken gourmet burger and a Mediterranean chicken salad!

The salad came first, and when it came I could smell the mayonnaise on it! Crunchy vegetables like onions, olives, tomatoes, capsicum and cucumber all mixed together with chunks of chicken and mayonnaise. The crunch of the onions with flavour of the mayonnaise and chicken was a combination which complimented each other really good! Only negative thing was the cucumber which tasted bitter.

While we were still at the salad, our burger arrived and shortly after with the sizzling sound our chicken sizzler arrived hot! Both looked equally amazing we were confused where to start!

However the burger won the first entry! And this dish was my lottery ticket! The burger had a lot of greens with tomatoes and cheese partially melted making it look all welcoming πŸ™‚ The one thing which really won my heart was the patty! generally the burger patties are fried but this one wasn’t!


When I took my first bite, I am not exaggerating but the whole burger was juicy! The chicken patty felt like it was minced really well and put back together. I saved a little piece of it so that I could eat it in the end πŸ˜€ I loved it that much!!

The sizzler next! still hot I used a french fries to taste the sauce! the strong taste of garlic with pepper cut right through in! One disappointment was they gave us garlic bread which did not fit in so well! mashed potatoes would fit wonderfully especially to compliment the strong sauce! The chicken wasn’t that tender and a little rough but the taste wasn’t compromised at all!


When we asked for the bill we were in for a surprise when they gave us a white truffle cake on the house! Thank you people!! The service person inquired how we liked the food and my answer was a simple thumbs up with a wide eye!

The service in this place is good! they maintain the distance but are always on the watch to see if we need anything. They patiently serve us but I just wish they smile more!
