Munveedu - Disaster

Went for Saturday night dinner. Worst experience ever. Server was not responsive to questions. Food was served very late - 50 min after we ordered. Our table sever went missing. Other servers said they will prepare food one by one only and we will have to wait. Another customer plate was served smelly and couldn't see it getting replaced quickly. Finally food was served and it was decent.But not good enough to compensate for the bad experience. I will never visit or recommend it to anyone.

The Worst Restaurant - Don't go or Recommend to Any

Yesterday our family went to Munveedu.. We booked already. We reached exactly by 8 o clock. They received us, arranged for a table and made us sit. They served soup at 8.50 pm after asking for it a million times. Then after we finished the soup we were made to sit till 9.35 pm to serve the food which we ordered. That too not hot. They told us that it would be freshly prepared. Horrible experience. Asked many times , even fought with the manager . Not only me, others who came yesterday also had the same experience. Worst service, poor responses. After a long time I convinced my family to go outside to have a great dinner. But had a worst experience. Everyone of us lost our patience and we fought and came back..
Who can wait for half an hour to eat. They were not even responding.
Never recommend to any one.

Chettinad food repackaged

There is a friend who likes to visit new restaurants, experiment with cuisines, actually she likes Indian cuisines as Italian and Continental are not spicy enough for her!! :D So, one morning, she called me with excitment in her voice and asked if i was free to meet for lunch... I replied in affirmative and she then said , lets go to Munveedu[ pronounced: Mann veedu- house made of sand]

It was 12.45 and i was just entering the road next to Malar-Fortis Hospital and heading towards Gandhinagar club, with eyes focussed on either side of the road looking for the restaurant.. Drove past the club and still no luck.. And then, voila, i spotted the small Terracota board on the right side with the name written in tamil. The security guided me to the entrance and there i found a dhabba express like restaurant- red mud/terracota interiors, with pots and people embossed on them. Comfortable cane chairs with foam stuffings, though they were designed to not hold a bag or a phone [they kept sliding off the surface]




Munveedu in Tamil means a home made of mud. And indeed, the restaurant has mud walls reminding one of a cosy houses in the villages..

There is also a bullock cart, minus the bulls standing outside, near the entrance. It does look nice, but doesnt do much to the service offered inside!!

The menu was extensive and listed down quite a few South Indian dishes from various parts of Tamilnadu – Chettinadu, Karaikudi, Coimbatore, Dindigul and so on- kinda like Karaikudi Restaurant.. It serves both vegetarians and non-vegetarians food.

We finally settled for the Zameen Meals [Zameen in Hindi mean earth which is another word for Mun/mann-sand, bhoomi], which was Rs399 for veg and Rs499 for non veg. My friend had ordered a non veg starter and veg soup which took forever to reach out table... To a point where we actually wondered if the waiter had forgotten about us... There was a couple in the adjacent table who were done with their meal, paid their bill and off with their doggy bag before our soup landed on our table..


The place mat with a thirukkural on it- in Tamil with the meaning in English...

The place is quite spacious, with enough tables scattered across the rooms, ranging from 2 seaters to 6 seater tables. I was quite amazed at the crowd that had piled in and the long queue of people waiting outside...

The soup was a kind of Rasam, with lots and i mean Lots, read Overdose of Coriander leaves and Curry leaves... I dint care for it too much... The starter my friend said was good- think it was Prawns!

Our Zameen meals finally arrived.. it was quite elaborate- there was Idiyappam, a Parotta apart from quite a few side dishes... We were also served hot Appams and rice & ghee [optional]...

Overall, the food was ok.. There was nothing exceptional about the quality or options available.. I would rather go to Karaikudi...

Worst in Adyar

Don't even want to waste my time writing ... in one word "Horrible"..

Share:

Wasted my Sunday eating here.

On hearing about this new place, we thought of trying this out. Worst decision ever.

The food was really sad with very small quantities. The waiters did not bother to turn up even after we were seated for over 30 minutes. The rice had small insects and when we asked for it to be replaced, they just picked out the insects and brought back the same rice.

Has to rate as one of the worst places in town currently.

From okay to horrible in 2 weeks !!!

This place opened up very close to our place and we went here a few times. Initially the food was good with fabulous appams and good side dishes. From what used to be an okay dining experience, its turned into a horrible place in less than two weeks time. This time around we went there on a weekday and asked for the non-veg thali, this came in with two non veg flavoured curries and no non veg pieces so to speak of. When we asked the staff they said that's how they serve the non veg thali !!!! To top this, the rice had insects in it and the experience was totally ruined for us. Never again !!!

Munveedu Dinner review

Tried the following at Munveedu.

Chicken soup
- Was decent. Standard taste.

Mutton Keema Vadai
- Had no salt in it.
- Decent Quantity
- Costly

Mutton Dhum Biriyani
- Quantity was less
- Raitha was not freshly made.
- Mutton pieces were fine. Looks like they prepare the rice and pieces and mix them just before serving. May be thats a standard practise in a lot of places, but it was very apparent here, with pieces being piping hot, but basmati rice was just feebly warm.

Veg. Kothu Parotta
- Decent Quantity and Taste.

1 soup, 1 starter and 2 main dishes cost us around 600.
Ambience was ok, but the place was a bit claustrophobic.

worth the money spent

I have been here twice, first time was an attempt , it was impressive then by choice.
Idiyappam, Fish fry and Nattu Kozhi soup is awesome.

Apparently there had been news about the place in the paper almost daily and it had been lanched recently- Oct 28th, she went on.... Asked her for directions and got on with my day...
