The year 2002 saw the advent of Simran’s Aappa Kadai in Dubai with 4 branches and 3 in Chennai, India. With a clear focus, to provide its customers, the most authentic Indian flavours, the restaurant soon became a favourite not only with Indians but also with food lovers across all nationalities. Little wonder that this multi-cuisine affair also won its share of awards and accolades.
Simran’s Aappa Kadai is an all-day restaurant serving both vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food in a wide range of cuisines like Aappams, Chettinad, Tandoori, Chinese and North Indian. From our well trained chefs to our detail towards hygiene, everything here is world class. In fact our open kitchen allows our guests to indulge in food like never before. The restaurant also offers the facility of delivering food at home and has take-away counters at all locations and is open from 11am to 11pm.
It’s the subtle mix of spices with a dash of our experience that leaves our guests craving for more, every single time. Our signature dish, the aappam is served in various mouth-watering combinations like the Chicken Kheema Aappam, Bull’s Eye Egg Aappam and Aappam with Chicken Stew.
