Flying Elephant, Park Hyatt, Guindy - Sunday Brunch



Dining out on Sundays  is becoming a regular feature of Chennaites. Restaurants are queing up with different offers, different varites to woo the restaurant goers. We friends had a job at hand, that is to throw a Bachelor Party for  the first member of our gang to get hooked in marriage. With so many options we were spoilt for choice but then we wanted to throw it at a new restaurant. So we finally setteled for Flying Elephant at Park Hyatt!

Food:
I was assigned the job of ferrying the soon to be Mappilai to the restaurant and we were a little behind schedule. This delay was quite enough for the rest of my gang members to start binging on the food. 




The brunch is an on table affair (buffet), so you have to wait for the food to be served at your table. Thats something I would not mind. Less work walking around. We were served with so many dishes, that I found it hard to keep a track of what we had. From the starters, I loved  the Duck Bruschetta, the duck complimented the crispy nature of the bread. Prawns in Lemon glaze was another dish which I loved. Perfectly grilled with a drizzle of honey and finally a open shell presentation. There was a selection of Kebabs - both veg and non-veg. I loved them all. But the Chicken Pizza was my favourite.



Moving to the main course, the only grouse was the Biryani which was not rich enough to be called a biryani. But the rest, Penne Arrabiata, Malaysian Flat Noodles and finally the Roti with Dal Makhani were too good.We were too stuffed from the various starters, to even try the rest of the mains and had to leave the them for another day.

Finally the desserts, I loved them all. I just cannot single out any one. Maybe thats because I had a few mouthfuls of all of them. Next time I will return with a bigger appetite.

Food here is well worth the money. The place is huge and I cannot believe that the place was packed for Sunday brunch.

Ambiance:
The ambiance here is simply stunning. We were seated in the Volvo Lounge, a little informal dinning zone, but that what the doctor had ordered for the occasion. I most certainly liked the out door dinning. A definite date/ romantic evening location.

Service:
I really don't have the best words to explain the superb service given to us. It would be an understatement to say the service was fantastic. Also a surprise bonus was the staff doing a flash mob to Gangnum style song.

Price:
The Sunday brunch without alcohol is priced at Rs 2000/- nett. Plus taxes should work somewhere around Rs 2400/- The food is worth the money paid here. So if you are looking for a great Sunday Brunch please do not give this place a miss. Flying Elephant truly flying!!
