  • Great Hang Out! Aug 31, 2013

    Pleasant Sunday evening and I was driving with my friends around Adyar looking for a place to hang out. I've heard so much about Zha cafe but hadn't been there at all.

    So I suggested Zha cafe and my friends were happily in. We headed to the road where Bharath school is and reached Zha cafe hoping not to wait for a table.

    An Ayyanar welcomed us at the entrance. We stepped into an independent house convert cafe with old doors, and a roof like ceiling.
    The hall space was utilized well with four tables. Each room had a different theme. There was a big Rajasthani room, snake

  • Perfect Place to Unwind Aug 19, 2013

    After a long hectic day at office, with on call which was for 30 mins lasted for about little more than 2 hours got over, I headed to the newly opened "Zha" Cafe at Porur. This is a newly opened branch for the original one in Adyar. Trust me it was a complete unwind for me after a hectic day. I guess it was the same with most of us.
    The whole concept of Zha Cafe is to ensure that your get all what you had wanted to eat in a tea shop or coffee kadai in a more healthier environment. I was surprised to see my favorite drink on the menu " Pana Kalkandu Paal " This is a drink made by mixing milk

  • Something different! Mar 02, 2013

    Recently arrived in Chennai from Australia. What I like about this cafe is its Tamil theme. Sometimes I just don't understand why many cafe entrepreneurs need to feel that to attract customers you need present pretentious western or northern Indian ambiance. Ain't Tamil cool? I think Zha Cafe shows that Tamil themed cafes can be cool!
    Kudos for the owner for trying something different! I wish you guys all the best.

    Has good themes around the place ! We were treated with great enthusiasm. Went for a bday party there and we enjoyed it. Food there is tasty and almost feels home made. The games are bit old but it definitely is a good choice for friends who get together to shed off boredom !

  • Putting the ZHA in TamiZHAn Nov 19, 2012

    ZHA is a truly delightful hideout tucked away in a quiet street. The food is nothing to write home about, but is more than competent. The ambience however, is really unique. Each room has its own unique decor, drawn from the propreitress' sense of style and design. The degree kaapi is quite nice. Other traditional favourites like the adirasam are also quite tasty. My favourite of course was the ladakkz, a rich concoction of brownies beat into coffee. Definitely a must try, if only for the serene ambience that affords you the privacy of a room at affordable prices

    Hello Mr.Akash,
    We have installed new sign boards now. I would say we are actually cheaper than most of the coffee shops in Chennai.
    Anyways do visit us again and give us the pleasure to serve you .

  • Fantastic..... But, Nov 10, 2012

    Been there on my Birthday.... Had Payasam which was as good as my mom's..... Everything was very fine.... But when we asked for Temple Sadam, the lady over there shouted and said , we cant make it now, even though we said we can wait having some munchies..... She was really irritating....We immediately finished with the bill and started. That is not the way to speak.... But everything else was very wonderfull.
