Being in south India one of the finest thing one would relish or crave for is the south Indian Saapad(thaali) south Indian food has many varieties right from Idli Sambar to payasam.
Recently I had been invited by Regenta Central Deccan to try out their newly opened Mami Samaiyal’s thaali prepared by one and only Chef.Prema Nambiraja (fondly called as Mami)
who is a passionate cook travelled across countries like Muscat,USA,Dubai etc spreading her love for South Indian food. Regenta being a fully vegetarian Hotel, this Mami Samaiyal serves dishes without onion and garlic, but When you taste the thaali you never feel it’s absence,such scrumptious and tasty thaali
Mami cooks with no extra oil or no too much spices, she also handpicks her vegetables and cooks everything on her own keeping home made food in mind right from the Podi n pickle
to the dessert Payasam she makes it all.
This Thaali is an unlimited one making sure no food is wasted which is not accepted by Chef.Prema as she is so particular about no food wastage just as how my community teaches me and how we practice it at large.
Mr.Aditya Singh the manager at Regenta he is a genuine person so helpful and customer friendly, who took me around the restaurant showing things and sharing the story and speciality of the restaurant,and Chef.Prema sharing what she cooks and in detail naming the dishes in the thaali.
They also have a Spa in there, where different types of massages are given according to the health issues,it’s priced minimum of abt 1750 per 60-90 mins session.
Also,few shops of artifacts is located in the ground floor,attracting tourists and local crowd to get hands on some artistic pieces.
I would definitely want to go there again when I have a craving for South Indian Saapad as well as take my guests here to try out the Tamil cuisine when they drop in Chennai.
Regenta Central Deccan Mami Samaiyal- I wld give 4⭐ and +1 ⭐ for the practice and thought of not wasting food, all In all a 5⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
