The Rock

Today was a good day. The money was well spent and the satisfaction level exceeded our expectation. Yes, we had lunch at The Rock, a theme restaurant at Adyar. The theme, I don’t know how to put, was clearly not our typical forest. It was more like a jungle from ancient times. But the decors weren’t too ‘forest-y’ nor too plain. It was just the right mixture. You’ll have the forest ambience balanced by the feel of eating at a restaurant. Neat and tidy. Oh, there was also an aquarium and a waterfall; it’s an enjoyable experience dining there 🙂

The seating is pleasant with comfortable chairs and equally comfortable tables that are spread out well enough. The walls had a bunch of interesting things to look at like the dinosaur skulls and cavemen hunting scenes. You might want to touch the walls while on your way inside. They feel like actual rocks (don’t know if they are) and not like some painted cardboard cutouts decorating the wall. There are three things that I prioritize while looking for a good affordable restaurant.

  • Air conditioned
  • Kid friendly
  • Valet Parking

The Rock had them all.

The menu offered a variety of Thai, Oriental and Indian cuisines and here’s what we had.

Since we arrived at The Rock early and where the first to lunch today, we were given complimentary dishes. They were absolutely delicious though a bit more on the spicy side. The prices were quiet reasonable for the quantity and quality of food that was served to us. The Rock is a definite visit in the future for many more times to come ^_^
