This September, Restaurant Week India features 12 participating restaurants in Chennai. Each restaurant has a set timing to make reservations and as per such preference, a three-course prix fixe menu lunch costs ₹750 plus taxes (works out to a ₹900 overall) and dinner costs ₹900 plus taxes (that’s about ₹1080) per diner.

Restaurant Week India also has an additional option of Signature appetisers & Main Courses (additional ₹100 & ₹200 respectively in Chennai) which can be added on at the venue, if interested. The prices vary from city to city. While making the reservations on the site, they collect a convenience fee of  ₹60 per diner, which is non-refundable. Unlike the previous edition of RWI, the meal price will have to be paid directly at the restaurant instead of paying online at the time of making the reservation.

Being a formal event, RWI diners are expected to dress accordingly. Any direct booking at restaurants is futile as participating restaurants are informed only 12 hours prior to the reservation timing about such booking.

Restaurant Week India is being held from Friday, 16th September to Sunday, 25th September 2016, this time. The reservations are now open for RWI. As a result of the association with Ola, all Restaurant Week diners will receive complimentary Ola rides to and from their meals. This event is a great opportunity to try out some fine dining restaurants at really affordable prices!
