Asterix In Chennai

At the entrance to “Kryptos” the owners have installed impressive signage with Greek characters carved into stone. It looks exactly as if Asterix and his pal, Obelix, have left their menhirs on the doorstep of the underground restaurant. The duo behind this Greek-Cypriot restaurant, an Indian businessman and an expat chef, have already scored a hit with their Tuscana Pizzeria, an olive stone’s throw away from Kryptos. Chef Willi, an Obelix-sized New Zealander, first came to Chennai to set up an open plan kitchen at the Park Hotel. He never left. Instead, he has been setting up wood-fired pizza ovens and serving see-how-I-can-toss-them Italian-style pastas and salads with great panache.
