View my food journey on Zomato!

I have got the invite from this place for reviewing their new menu “MAPLAI VIRUNTHU”, by seeing the name you can guess its going to the big feast for sure.

So I was excited to try what the menu will be.

MAPLAI VIRUNTHU is a typical tamil name means “feast which we give for new  son in law”.

Let me share my experience in Maplai restaurant.

I Went inside and I was amazed by the ambience, Suddenly a guy showed up and invited me, I was little shocked to see him its “Mad Chef koushik”, I was damn happy to see him.

He is the first one to introduce panner pizza for the people who doesn’t know him.

After a little talk they started serving the food:

Here is the list of food item which u can find in Maplai virunthu:



1.kuluki sharbath

This is made of ginger, pine apple and green chill, its kind of having sugar cane juice with ginger, too unique, Mainly helps in beta digestion

2.Fruit mix

The Moment when I had this I started thinking about my childhood memories having frutimix juice with friends

Loved it

3.Rose milk

Best Rose Milk you can ever taste in Chennai.

Dips & Vadagam:



it’s a ring chips which we get in normal shops, have it with dips

5.Curried Mayo

Curried mayo is made from curry leaves and chilly poweder, little spicy but best dip u can taste

I personally liked avakadi Mayo out of 5

I haven’t found much taste different from panner ka thalli n panner kika.

18.Pepper Paneer:


Best among all the panner item which u can get it from here. They have made it spicy in the way how non veg food is cooked.

They explained us that it is cooked in the same way how they cook goat brain fry.

NON-VEG Starters: Here comes to my Fav Part

19.Chicken Tikka:


For those chicken lovers I feel its damn worthy to try out non veg food here instead of going for BBQ and ABQ,

This guys deliver best taste I have ever taste.

Perfect masala and perfectly cooked with avakkai dip will make u fell ur flying.

20.Chicken 65:

One of the oldest food which is founded on 1965 by buhari, still it’s the kind amount everything.

They made is exactly the taste of buhari

Perfect size and less greasy.

21.Nattu Kozhi Fry:


Nxt Signature dish in maplai, mainly for the health freak who don’t like boiler chicken pls directly go for it

  1. Mutton Kola Urundai:

img_4315Its same like veg kola urundai, instead of using banana flower they have used mutton here.

Its perfect round in shape tied up with banana stream { naru} this dish is famous in kerala.

24.Mutton Pepper Fry:

Damn spicy and soft, I bet u can never get softer mutton in Chennai except mapalai. They export the mutton from erode where goat eats only grass which make there meat softer.

  1. Fish tikka & 26 nethili fry


We have tried chicken, mutton where is fish, here it comes, the moment they enter the hall with nethili and fisk tikka the aroma pulls up towards it.

Im sure your mouth starts to water by just looking at it.

Best fish tikka.

Try nethili fry with mint Mayo.
