Sabha Canteen Roundup 2018 - Lunch by Gnambiga catering @ Vani Mahal - T.Nagar


I hate the longer waiting time for food or getting a table at any restaurant. That thing annoys me to the core and spoils my mood. Also I hate people watching me like a hawk so as they can get seated. That அண்ணன் எப்போ போவான் திண்ணை எப்போ காலியாகும் கதை. Unfortunately lunch in Sabha canteens tests my patience in both the above said categories. But the love for typical இலை சாப்பாடு is much more so I always put up with that. Same thing happened today @ Vani Mahal. Gnambiga is the caterers here and I kickstarter my lunch roundup of this season with them. Crowd management is what they should figure out. That too given the basic common sense or decency our people have, it was highly annoying to see people who cared nothing about those waiting before them and grabbed seats right royally as if they own the Sabha. I expressed my concern with the owners (they were managing the cash counter) to figure out something and after a good 20+ minutes of waiting we got seated. One of the elderly gentleman who was serving food issued some unwanted statements. It wasn’t called for and he & his attitude really tested my patience and the argument was put off by the owner who was apologetic and asked me to let it go.

A simple but delicious fare was waiting for us. Paruppu podi + ghee, avarakkai poriyal, bitter gourd poriyal, radish sambhar, manathakkali vatha kulambu, rasam, buttermilk, appalam, pickle, payasam and today being “Arudhra Dharisanam” they also served thiruvadhirai kali & kootu. Every single item served was delicious. Especially the bitter gourd & mochai poriyal was mindblowing. I haven’t come across such a tasty pagarkai kari with no traces of bitterness in recent times. Vatha kuzhambu & rasam were divine. And there wasn’t any hesitation from their side when we asked for 2/3/4th servings 😜 And a sweet Beeda is also part of the menu.






A meal is priced at Rs.200 and they start their lunch session from 10.30 am and runs till 3 pm. I was told that they will keep the canteen up and running till 5th of January.
