Being a coastal state, it is no surprise that Chennai loves seafood. Even with the majority of the population being vegetarian, there are enough seafood restaurants in the city that will give you just about everything you’re looking for.
Whether it’s a place you can see the fresh catch laid out or glance through a menu, the city has it all for you.
The Manhattan Fish Market, Mylapore
Opened recently in Chennai, this restaurant has seafood in almost every form. You can have seafood with your pasta or even poached or baked and of course, have it as fish & chips, because you can never go wrong with that. Psst, they’ve even got lobsters!
The Marina, Nungambakkam
The minute you walk into the restaurant, you are greeted by fresh fish, crabs, lobsters and more. You get to pick and choose what you want to eat and how you want them to prepare it for you.
Jakob’s Kitchen, Khader Nawaz Khan Road
Seafood made in South Indian masalas make everything so much better and Jakob’s Kitchen does exactly that. With traditional combinations to interesting ones, this is the place to go. Today, we’re going to make a popular summertime Spanish recipe which includes rice and seafood simmered in a delicious soup base with fragrant and flavorful spices. I’ve made some changes in the original recipe to make my own version which tastes equally good. Feel free to experiment with the type of seafood variety you may want to use in this preparation. You can make it on the weekends for the entire family with extra servings for the visitors. If seafood is not available, you can also make it with chicken though you’ll miss the authentic flavor. Serve it piping hot with flavored dip and tangy salad bowl. Let’s get ready to prepare this scrumptious and healthy seafood recipe for our loved ones.
Azzuri Bay, Adyar

When in Mahabalipuram, Moonrakers should be the only seafood restaurant you stop by. They’ve been around for years and they know their audience by now. Plus, they’ve got fresh fish to choose from and they’re open late.
