Aahar is new Multicuisine Restaurant opened in Mylapore diagonally opposite to Sanskrit College, on the way to Luz Signal. One cannot miss this restaurant, as it is very much on the road and has ample car parking space.
The decor of the place is simple and nice. The chairs are comfortable and the temperature is just right to suit you. They are open for morning breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The menu card looks colorful and attractive. The prices for all the items in the card is on the moderate side.
The welcome drink given to us was a refreshing orange drink. It was not very sweet but was very refreshing, that too after a hectic day at office.
We were served, two soups, Mulligatawny Soup and Tomato Soup. Mulligatawny Soup which is supposed to be very spicy, was not spicy. Arjun our host for that dinner, explained that , the customers who had this soup earlier felt that it was very spicy and hence the levels have been brought down. Tomato soup was also very good to taste with the spice and salt levels just correct.
We were served an array of Salads and starters. I liked the Baby Corn Manchurian and Noodle Salad the best.

Now its time for Main Course and the specialty dish of Aahar, is the Podi Dosa and Podi Masala Dosa.
Both tasted good. Bear in mind that the rates are moderate too

Finishing touch for dinner at a vegetarian restuarant is always a strong filter coffee. This coffee did not disappoint us. It was strong, with the right amount of sugar and milk. Perfect finish to the wonderful dinner
Aahar is a nice place for family dinner, which will cater to the tastes of every body in the family, from the oldest to the youngest.
