I found it quaint and nice for a tea break. The tea was served hot and the ambience was nice. The scones were good. Rest of the food was decent

We were directed to this gallery by Tripadvisor and it did not disappoint. Palani showed us a large selection of paintings and scupltures by a variety of India's great artists and answered all our many questions patiently. It is a small gallery with many of the paintings stacked up against the walls, located on the top floor of the owner's house I think, but they will be expanding in the future. The pricing seemed very fair. We ended up buying three paintings which Palani crated and sent to Singapore for us, sending us photos of the crating and updates along the way. Highly recommended.

We were most impressed by the professionalism and sincerity of the director of the Faraway Tree Gallery , Mr Palaniappan Ramanathan,,who gave considerable time to enlighten us on the back ground of various artists and works which were on display

I understand that his collections were acquired individually though his personal contact with the variou artist over a period of time.They also have some bronze art reasonably priced

Some of his represented works on the walls were also placed in accessible lots in his office.

We recommend this gallery as a must visit for art lovers in Chennai.

My son bought his first painting from this gallery.

In our recent trip to Chennai we visited "The Faraway Tree Gallery" and we were quite impressed with the selection. The gallery has a diverse selection of Indian artists, all very well displayed. The inventory that was not on the walls was stored in a way that did not damage the paintings, which was something we noticed about many of the other galleries in town. The owner, Palaniappan, was also very passionate and knowledgeable about Indian artists and was able to answer all questions we had. To anyone in the market for Indian art who happens to be visiting Chennai, the Faraway Tree gallery is a great place to check out.

I found with Palaniappan Ramanathan holding the art gallery The faraway Tree - in Chennai on the first floor in a residential street - not only a warm welcome but all expected by a collector professional advice.
I discovered the Indian artists he presents with passion and am very happy for having bought an oil painting
This is a gallery that I highly recommend and where you can take your time to look at the works.
