Named after the popular Indian spice, star anise, this contemporary all-day-dining restaurant at Taj Coromandel is home to an eclectic mix of flavours. The décor is minimalistic and exudes a feeling of homely comfort. Here, one can savour our dynamic approach to food, from Indian to Oriental, Italian and Mediterranean and the freshest coastal seafood.
Finding the perfect blend of spices is a skill, making Chettinad cuisine one of the most skilful in its preparation. Chettinad dishes revolve around mutton, chicken and fish and are less fiery and more about the use of cinnamon, cumin and star anise. Traditions here are still alive, and well. And those forgotten are brought to life into fine-dine dishes of the highest calibre. They’re passionate and personal, authentic and artistic. And all for you to discover and devour, al fresco style, surrounded by a lush green canopy.
