Wholesome yet adventurous-defines both the city and its eating joints that capture the gastronomic delights of the South Indian cuisine spectacularly and deliciously. Some of the popular ones are:

  • Femina food court

    Opposite Femina mall, is a sheltered outdoor seating area where you can choose between oriental dishes and Indian snacks. With a Chinese restaurant and an Indian snack bar sitting next to each other, both with a range of dishes to keep you switching and changing your order, the food court is an ideal place to take a break from the heavy duty shopping. You can wash down all the spiciness with a glass of juice at the juice shop and follow it up with a muffin or two at the cake shop.

  • Banana Leaf

Putting together some of the best of
Hyderabadi, Chettinad and Mughlai cuisine, Banana Leaf is one of the ideal places in Tiruchirappalli to get a dollop of the regional Tamil as well as Andhra cuisine. Call it fiery, spicy, hot, burning hot and you will still fall short of words, partly because of the gallons of water you will be gulping after each morsel. With a mind boggling variety of incredible spicy, aromatic dishes to choose from, both vegetarian and nonvegetarian, do remember to ask the staff explicitly about the piquancy of each dish you choose to have.

A meal for two will cost about INR 700, exclusive of drinks and service charge.

  • Shree Krishnas


With a varied offering of local, North Indian tandoori and a sprinkling of oriental cuisine, vegetarians will find the restaurant to their liking. With only vegetarian fare, the restaurant is the in-house dining place of Hotel Mathura. Though some chinese dishes are offered, but the local and North Indian dishes are the real draw of the place. Tuck into a spicy dosa or light as a feather idli and enjoy the scene of people crossing roads being almost run down by traffic on the road outside.

  • Vasanta Bhavan

Those familiar with Tamil Nadu would immediately recognize the popular chain, almost a landmark, restaurant. In fact the first branch was actually opened in Tiruchirappalli before they expanded to
Chennai and other places. For idlis stuffed with fresh produce, julienned golden onions with spicy, aromatic sambhar on the side or paper thin, light dosas stuffed with spicy potatoes, Vasant bhavan is the place to be. Craving for a little bit of North Indian style spiciness, then you can choose from their varied offering of North Indian dishes particularly the paneer (cottage cheese) based dishes.

There are two branches to choose from, one is next to Shree Krishnas above in the Cantonment area, while the address of the other is given below.

  • Marrybrown

For those of you whose daily meal is not complete without a burger or two, with a tub of chicken thrown in and a jar of soda or smoothie to wash it all down with,
MarryBrown might be the place to head to. Another popular chain restaurant, spread in certain cities of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka, MarryBrown lures you with its distinct youthful appeal. There are a range of scrumptious, filling vegetarian and nonvegetarian burgers, wraps and finger foods to choose from. Nonvegetarians, especially those who like their food chicken dominated, will be spoilt for choice-fried chicken, chicken tubs, chicken poppers-all cooked to spicy and juicy goodness. If you still have space left to swallow, you might want to try out their range of smoothies.

A meal for two would cost about INR 200 to INR 400.

Today, due to urbanization and seeping in of cosmopolitan culture an eclectic dining scene can be found in Tiruchirappalli
, with the availability of Oriental and Continental cuisines. Fine-dining restaurants are just a stone's throw away from humble local eateries doling out equally tasty idlis served with some of the best sambhar or delicious uttapam piled with bowls of utterly delicious coconut and tamarind chutneys (sauces).

Finally, remember that being in Tiruchirappalli, you are in South India the world's epicenter of idli. While you're here you must have at least one plate of idli for breakfast. Those steaming delicacies are as comforting and delicious as they are exotic and yet simple.

Tuck into the gastronomic delights of the city and slurp your way towards an enduring association that you are bound to form through dishes that are at once so fresh, cool, tinglingly hot, sweet and tangy.
