Thambi Vilas was a small establishment from a South Indian Village, now has found its way to establishing an outlet in the heart of Chennai.

It explores long lost South Indian Cuisine with finest ingredients and raw materials.

The menu here is more realistic for everyone to visit this outlet as a habit to indulge and enjoy the food with unconditional love.

From the sawdust on the ground to the mounted Gramaphone on the walls, Thambi Vilas is where modern Chennai go to relive the turn of the 19th century. Their dishes are simple, hearty, fresh, and all-around delicious.

By focusing purely on food and ambience, Thambi Vilas provides the authenticity of the Old South without the costumes and playacting of a themed restaurant. You can bring your cowboy boots if you want, but the humble and relaxed atmosphere asks that you come as you are.

Ms. Vignesh has surprised us with his ability to turn pioneer staples into Southindian delights. The signature drinks are not merely couched in nostalgia, but are a genuine rebirth of southern saloon classics.

Good food and drink are one thing, but this place had me sold me my chilhood back. From your regular meals to your craft made parottas, Thambi Vilas has something for everyone and brings the Madras life back Chennai.
