Lakshmi Amma's Kai Manam

We were thinking of places to have lunch on dad's birthday. Given our recent experience at ITC, I was worried whether dad will be willing to dine outside. My brother suggested on ordering something for home delivery. We discussed few options and finally settled down with ordering from Lakshmi Amma's Kai Manam.

Ordering process was pretty simple. Called up Siva and after getting few doubts clarified, placed my order. Our order was a mix of sea food (predominantly) and few meat dishes along with a portion of chicken biriyani.

Vanjiram fry (3 portions) - smaller pieces of vanjiram (around 6) cooked to perfection with a spicy marinade. While we loved the taste, we felt 600 bucks was little too much for the portion.

Fish Kuzhambu  (2 portions) - This one was yummy to the core. With loads of onions and a single piece of fish (I don't know what fish and I didn't taste it either) tangy and perfectly spiced. And it was much more brilliant with curd rice :D

Nalli Elumbu Kuzhambu (1 portion) - A coconut based gravy, mildly spiced which went well with the rice. Brother was happy with the taste.

Chicken biriyani (1 portion) - Basmati rice perfectly flavoured, with no trace of oil and zero irritants. But the portion was very less. And no brinjal gravy to go with it. Just the raitha alone.

Pepper chicken (2 portions) : Semi gravy type with freshly ground pepper dominating the scene. But the meat consistency was not upto the mark. While few pieces were tender few of them were too hard n chewy.

Prawn thokku - Our actual order was sura puttu. Since that was not available on that day, we asked them to replace it with prawn thokku. Tiny prawns, cooked well in a fierry onion & tomato base was excellent.

Mutton Kola - 6 pieces of kola urundai. It was too salty and dry. 

Crab roast (2 portions) - I did'nt taste this. Got a feedback that it was good.

Food was delivered on time as requested, neatly packed in containers. They obliged to our request for returning the vessels/containers later. Paid 2100 bucks for all these. While the taste was very good, I felt it to be tad bit pricey for the portions that was served. They can be reached at 7708055111
