Courtallam Border Rahmath Kadai, T Nagar, Chennai - Restaurant Review

What: Courtallam Border Rahmath Kadai
Where: G N Chetty Road, T. Nagar, Chennai
Cuisine: South Indian

Right from the day I saw the banner 'Coming Soon', I have mentally bookmarked the place and the curiosity doubled after hearing the Rahmath Border Kadai story but that plan of visiting the Border Kadai at Chennai kept postponing. And weeks back when I dropped at their outlet to get parcel they were sold out and I had to wait atleast for an hour to get one parotta. This tripled the curiosity and I designed a proper Parotta lunch plan.

On the G.N. Chetty Road and it shouldn’t be any tough to find them; with ample parking space they own two huge floors but they are always filled with people during service hours. If you couldn’t bare the scorching heat of Chennai then head to the second floor immediately as they have AC. The food menu is simple and straightforward, it is for carnivores and parotta freaks. Personally, I wouldn’t even suggest this place for an eggetarian.

With a parotta freak as a husband, I knew what to order. Seeing the people waiting for their table we settled for the order immediately: One plate Border Parotta (i.e. two parottas), one plate Veechu Parotta, Plain Biriyani, Naatu Kozhi (Country Chicken) Pepper Fry and Masala Kalakki.

Almost the size of my hand, the soft and flaky Border Parottas taste still stays fresh. I was in love with them when they placed the huge bowl of hot Salna on the table. Taste, lick, or drink the whole bowl of Salna as they are all yours. With right balance of spiciness and tad of sweetness that was just right. The Veechu Parotta tasted more like a naan rather then parotta.

What would turn a meat hater to a meat fan? The answer is Naatu Kozhi Pepper Fry :-D. Soft shredded chicken that is cooked to perfection and the hit of pepper flavor was so delicious that I pitied vegetarians for the first time. The Masala Kalaki had no complaints, the crunchiness from onions and the masala taste was just right.

And remember, this place is meant for Parotta though the Plain Biriyani tasted decent there are restaurants that excel in their Biriyani. So biriyani is a slight disappointment as I missed the essence of meaty masala. But don’t forget to try their Brinjal Curry, it was too good.

With two heavy and happy tummies which were billed Rs.380 INR for the complete meal.

Breaking Down Points
Location & Parking: Positive. On the prominent roads of Chennai so locating and parking is a boon.
Ambience: Ok. A place to fill your tummies, ambience isn’t given much value.
Food Variety: Positive. They stick to their genuine food style. No place for vegetarians.
Taste: Good. Except biriyani, the taste stays with you.
Quality: Good. A typical non-veg South Indian fare, served on banana leaf and quality was good.
Quantity: Good. Portion size is less, if you eat a lot then the sides wouldn’t be perfect for sharing.
Service: Good. For a rustic South Indian style restaurant the service was pretty good, fast and prompt.  
Price: Positive. Though they seem less compared to other fine-diners, they are priced a little high considering the portion. I would say ‘Reasonable’. Meal for two would come anywhere around Rs.400-Rs.600 INR.

So my Verdict!
Courtallam Border Rahmath Kadai! For all those who can’t travel to Rahmath Parotta Kadai and for those crazy parotto eaters. Head as a gang and see who eats the most number of parottas! 

P.S. This write-up is based my food palate and dining experience during my restaurant visit. Remember, no two person’s palate can be same.
