10 Romantic eateries in Chennai

It’s THE DAY (V Day). While the singles are busy posting memes about their frustrating single life on Social media, the love birds are busy planning to celebrate the most romantic day of the year. Namma Chennai is flooding with Roses, hearts and balloons today and it doesn’t matter if you are single or in a relationship, we all love and want GOOD FOOD because come on, FOOD IS THE ULTIMATE LOVE! After getting help from you all, I have decided to make a list of 10 most romantic eateries in Chennai. I have also included restaurants based on the cost (3 Expensive, 4 Affordable and 3 Economical ones). Again, These are subjective and are based on personal experience.

Two young men aged 23 started this cute little bistro in Anna nagar called Episode 23 and their place is just so welcoming.

If you are from the ‘Anna nagar side’ of the city and are looking for something affordable, Episode 23 it is.
