Hablife, Rooftop of Hablis Guindy
April 17, 2015, 6:31 p.m.


We were invited to review Hablife, rooftop restaurant of Hablis located in Guindy, Chennai

As soon as the lift doors opened, the entire place left us openmouthed. The place is so serene, wonderful. A gym, spa, pool, soft music, juice bar, trees, colorful  rustic decor, couches, awesome food. I will not think before I write this - "A restaurant setting that just took our breathe". I am always a fan of rustic decor, you see!



Hablife is a newly added beauty to Hablis on the 9th floor, you will enjoy a great view of the Chennai night scape. Discreet and friendly service. The menu is lil hard to understand ( both the font and the content ) We decided to go by chef's recommendations. Chef was so attentive, taking us through his journey of designing the menu and yeah, we had our mouths watering before we even tasted it! 


Food was tasty and few dishes were awesome. Serving size was less than ideal. Pricing- definitely not on the cheaper side. The welcome drink was good but not great. We had some awesome sushi with avocado. We could not stop with one plate. Then came the momos, the stuffing and sauce were the best thing about them.  Then we had Tom Yam soup, hot and spicy with lemongrass and mixed veg floating in. Buttered Jumbo prawns with Indian marination on a bed of raw papaya salad were as pleasing to the eye as to the tongue. Then came our main course - Narsi Goreng platter which had fried rice, chicken skewers, crackers and 3 types of sauce,Lingering taste. I would definitely order it again. Dessert was good, nothing much to rave about.

      A place ideal for a gallant date, breezy dining with your loved ones :) The pool is open till 7 30 PM in the night. Top of this dining area is a open place with juice bar. Overall, Hablife is a place to explore Pan Asian Cuisine allied with a fantastic ambiance :D
