I remember eating burgers for the fist time in my life at Cakes 'n' Bakes, Nungambakkam, back in the 1980s.
I THINK Cakes 'n' Bakes was the first eatery other than the 5-star hotels, to serve western fast food in Chennai, though bakeries like McRennet have been around much longer.
While the place USED to be good, it has deteriorated over the years. Service has gone downhill, and further, a unique, pungent mustard sauce that I liked a lot seems to be no longer available.
And lest I forget, the OWNERS, ESPECIALLY the woman, is a BIG SNOB, though her husband is friendlier.
