Must-visit sea food restaurants in Chennai

Non-vegetarians drool when they hear of seafood restaurants. Hailing from the coastal region of the country, seafood is available in abundance here and our taste-buds are accustomed to the spicy and tangy seafood varieties. The names – Karimeen pollichathu, meen vattichathu, Fish molly, koonthal fry, kozhuva fry and many more – just send saliva gushing into our mouth. For all the Chennaites out there, here are my suggestions for the seafood restaurants in Chennai:

1. The Marina

This is first on my list because, this is the best. It is not only reasonably priced, but also, they customize the dishes for you. You read that right. You can go to their fish section, pick the fish you want and tell them how you want it prepared- whether steamed or fried. you can emphasize on the extras too – the spices, sauces etc. You wouldn’t have complains such is it was too sweet or less spicy if you go there. Their seafood menu comprises of crab, prawns, a wide variety of fish prepared in various methods. Every item in the menu is accompanied with a note of what the basic ingredients used are. This helps us to choose the dish easily. 😉 The icing on the top – the ambiance is amazing! 🙂

2. The Fisherman’s Fare

Don’t judge the place by its fairly basic looks, for what is inside, will blow your mind. Apart from the reasonable prices, the friendly nature of the staff is an add on. The service is quick and they have a wide variety of sea food cuisine. The fish fingers, prawn curry, biriyanis, masala crab, other shrimp dishes etc are all packed with flavor. Do try out their prawn curry. 🙂

3. Samudra, Trident

For location, click HERE

If you are really dying for some lovely sea food cuisine, rush to Samudra. The sea food is fresh, cooking is excellent and the flavors are a treat to our taste buds. They have a wide variety of dishes in all the categories whether it is starters, salads or main course. When it comes to the service, they do go the extra mile to give us the best sea food experience.

4. Zaitoon Restaurant

For location, click HERE

If you are a lover of Arabian dishes, this might be the right place for you since you could try some seafood prepared in Arabian style. This one is not an exclusive seafood restaurant, but a multi cuisine one. However, the ambiance is awesome and the food is simply superb. If you do not prefer waiting, then I’d warn you not to visit the place during weekends since it gets very crowded. Well, that explains the demand for the food.

Fantasizing about some fish fries and praws dishes? Then why are you still here? Run to the closest seafood restaurant next to you among this list and try some lip smacking, finger licking dishes. Happy eating! 😀
