Welcome Hotel is one among the oldest restaurants which is located in Chennai and it has been operating since 1978. Since Purasawalkam is considered to be the main shopping district so the restaurant is crowded and people visit the place on a regular basis just to taste their delicious and mouth-watering Sambar.
Welcome Hotel, Purasawalkam
Welcome Hotel was established in the year 1978, and they are successful till date and the main reason is their Quality and taste. The most Iconic dish served here is their “Idly & Sambar” which might be the only reason we planned to visit the restaurant. They are also famous for their Chola poori & other Dosa varieties.
For a restaurant which has been operating for many decades the rates are surprisingly affordable and there hasnt been any compromsie on the taste and Quality.
Idly – ₹15 INR & Vadai – ₹26 INR
The Idly was well cooked and once you order a plate of idly you get an option of whether you want the Sambar in a Cup or to be poured on top of Idly and people tend to choose the 2nd option. The Sambar here has a unique taste and you could feel the flavour of ghee in it, overall it is not too spicy but a mild sambar which can be enjoyed by everyone.
Vadai was not up to the standards as it did not have a crispy outer layer and I’d say it was kinda average.

Onion Uthappam – ₹60 INR
The Uthappam was so crispy and the onions were well cooked & they tend to add podi in it which made it even more delicious. You get 3 different chutney for it and for the price point it is highly recommended.
