I have been to this place only once when I was given no other choice but to eat there . The place was near empty and this being located in sathyam a cineplex I expected it to be crowded . The ambiance is pretty decent . I had to go with pizza and it didnt disappoint me , it was good and filling too . The prices are a bit peaky . Parking available .

Frigging Expensive!

The place is located inside Sathyam Cinemas. The place has good Italian pasta and biriyani. The ambiance is the best one could see, but the food is expensive. And so the reason why the place is always vacant as its not much crowded.
The service is good though.

Top Class

Being regular movie watchers at Sathyam, we prefer our food quick and at a decent cost. Blur cafe stands out for both. The menu is pretty limited but their wood fired Pizzas are just out of this world. I cannot think of any other place that serves Pizza for such a low price. The Pepporoni and Farm House Pizzas are awesome. The Beef Steak combo is delicious. They have other combos as well for 250 which are varied and equally good.

The Biryani is average, but the Pastas and Sandwiches are tasty. The Milkshakes and Desserts stand out though. This place will keep you coming back for more definitely

A Costly Affair

Blur Cafe is located on the 5th floor of the Satyam complex and true to its image, is an expensive yet an enduring, delightful resto cafe, placed right behind the bowling alley.
They have a nice menu , though a very expensive one, given its just a normal seating cafe . The food however is excellent. A definite tryout is the pizza.
Though i still wonder why half a cup of "machine brewed capuccino" should cost Rs 75, when the same coffee 2 levels down in the Satyam food area costs Rs 50.
The service is lacklustre and not too attentive. Not really a place to splurge your money on.

Amidst All The Games

So, the Best friend is in town and we made plans for Lunch & Movie. There was no confusion in deciding on the movie because we both had decided to watch Hugo together, even before she landed in Chennai.

Now, the question was "lunch", where? I kept wracking my brains trying to zero in on a place that is close to Sathyam Cinemas and not too far for either of us, she was coming from Ashok nagar and moi from Chetpet. Finally, thought why not head out to Blur Cafe in Sathyam, and have lunch there. I had heard about the place, seen it while spending hours in the bowling arcade, but never eaten there. Trusting my instincts, messaged my friend "Lets meet at Sathyam cinemas around 1.30".

She was there on the dot, and alas, i was late by a few minutes.. Once i spotted her standing waiting for me in the lobby, ran and gave her a hug, before waiting for the elevator. We went up to the 5th floor, and onto the Cafe that was enveloped in Orange.

The tables were rounded and orange in colour with thin beaded lights running along the sides. The chairs were funky plastic moulded ones and cutlery was stainless steel on white plates. The place was pretty empty but for another couple. Sat ourselves, got comfortable and started catching up on our lives [ well, not that it had been long since we had last met, or spoken to :-) but still, we seem to never have dearth of topics to talk about]

My friend then looked at me and said "shall we go see whats in the counter?"
Me: Chalo.
My friend: dang, i have changed, wouldnt have done this few years ago.. now i dont know me
Me: Good for you girl :)

We spent a few minutes oggling at the desserts laid out in the counter- Chocolate crumble, pana cotta and so much more. Right beside this was the ice cream collection- there was fresh coffee ice cream, vanilla bean ice cream among other flavours.

The waiter [sweet chap, forgot his name though] gave us the menu card, a few minutes and then came over to ask if we were ready to order. After a bit of deliberation, we asked him to recommend. Only criteria being vegetarian. He said we could try the Wood fire pizza... Ran my finger through the list of pizzas and chose the Guiso [Pesto with different vegetables- thin crust 9inch pizza] and my friend suggested we order a Vegetable Grilled sandwich as well.



She had a bad cough, and when asked if they served green tea, the waiter recommended the Masala Chai, which landed in our table within a few minutes along with food.

The pizza was thin, light and filled withe flavour. It had a bunch of lightly roasted garlic amidst fresh basil leaves. The pizza toppings were - Olives, Cherry tomatoes, capsicum, and cheese over a pesto sauce. Each bite was sinful, and we polished it off within minutes.




The grilled sandwich looked quite appealing. It was brown bread with mix of colour peppers, tomato served along with a small serving of onions, capsicum and cabbage shredded finely. It was simple, filling and packed with flavours... Good we dint order too much, there was one slice of pizza that we decided to finish off amidst all our chats.


Seeing the time, i noticed it was close to 3pm and the movie was at 3.30pm. I looked up to catch the gleam in my friend's face.. "Shall we try one of those yummy looking desserts, we will share one, ok?" .. Well, i can never say No to her[she will give me a earful and a lecture to boot, such a mom she is], and we ordered the Panna cotta. The waiter told us it was what he would recommend and that it came with Blueberry Compote.

Alrighty!! [Now i have had Panna cotta in Tuscana couple of times and loved it, so expectations were high] and when this one landed on our table, it looked good. My mind was already doing the "find the 5 differences between the two- this was served in a cup, while the other is on the plate, this looked a little hard, the other looked like jelly or caramel custard.. and so on..." Breaking away from my thoughts, we took a spoon each and went in for it...

It came away easy on the spoon, and then was the taste test. My friend loved it, it was the 1st time she was eating such a dessert, but i kinda was still playing the 5 differences... :-) It tasted good, but texture was a tad thick. The blueberry compote was gooooood.... But it was sheer joy watching my friend devour the dessert, right down the last drop. All the 5 differences flew out the window and replaced with happiness :)

Phew... what a lunch that had been. The meal worked out to Rs550 [incl tax and Service charges], which i thought was reasonable. We left the place thanking the waiter with a big grin on our faces and all set for the movie!

Ambiance: 8/10 [ It was nice and quiet, but am guessing there are times when the place is buzzing with noise and crowd
Food: 8/10 [ Pizza and Sandwich were yummy, the pannacota was alright]
Price: 8/10 [Meal for 2 came to Rs550]

Under rated restaurant

I have been to Sathyam theater so many times, and probably more than half of Chennai as well! I was quite surprised when I went and ate at blur recently only to realize how under rated they are. Their veg restaurant, ID has anytime more number of customers, and I used to frequent there too. Blur was always there but you usually see only a handful of people, and used to think, how good can the food at the theater be.
How wrong I was.
They have one the best biriyani in Chennai, hands down. Good quality rice, spices are consistent, the meat cooked properly, and not oily. I would say the biryani here is even better than some of the restaurants who claim to be biryani specialists.
Other than that their chicken burger is really good, good patty, quantity and bun. Grillec chicken sandwich is also a good option, and if your getting late for your movie they will deliver to your seat!
Have had the pesto pasta, and got nothing to complain.
Only problem is parking at Sathyam during movie hours means you may have to park at the annexe where hey give free shuttle though. Also they deliver thru DineIn their delivery partner, so a great option there too.
Worth a try.

Satyam does it again !!

Blur cafe has been in the hiding for a long time now and thanks to the corporate meal plan they are getting the deserved attention. The corporate lunch has 3 options Chinese, continental and Indian, we tried the Continental and Chinese. Chinese had one spring roll, veg Manchurian and fried rice, along with one soup and one dessert (which was not available so had to take ice cream!) and the continental had soup, pasta and a dessert which were all good. The cheese sticks we ordered other than this was very cold and so didn't have the effect usually cheese sticks have.

The service is good. The place is always crowded, so be ready to wait! Also there is no one waiter on one table rule, so get used to the same question asked by different waiters again and again. Otherwise there is no regrets the prices are moderate too. Definitely have to go back again to try their fire-oven pizzas!

Its a gamer's food den

Blur cafe is one of those must have cafe cum restro which a typical gamer yearns for. Their quick bites are tasty. The Differently roasted pizza is unique and tasty. They have a nice array of combos which are affordable and suit the gamers which look for a small break and satiate their hunger. Best part is you can take your food to your Gaming place and eat while playing as well.

Cafe is Well maintained and has very polite and well trained attenders.

Hyderabadi precisely

We reluctantly tried out this resto. But it was a familiar surprise. Tried biriyani and it was hyderabadi. The food was great.
The only negative thing was the noise from the bowling and console games.
I'd go there when i want to have ANDHRA style.

Blur |m|

As a gaming freak and Blur frequenter I personally can vouch for its amazing food. I always grab myself a burger and a milkshake. The staff are extremely polite and suggestive as well. The place is very clean and well maintained. The food is outta the world which will draw me close to the place everytime. Since it is a part of the Sathyam complex parking aint a problem either. The bets part comes when you are allowed to take your foodto the gaming spot!

Review

With much more hesitations, i went to this restaurant. I tried wood fired Pizza.. the crest was really thin and toppings are added evenly. The ambience is good to play and eat in same place. I ordered for a large pizza which was ok for two. Really a good break from ordinary pizzas..
