Description: Named after a prosperous banking and business district in Southern Tamil Nadu, Chettinad Restaurant in London���s West End specialises in Southern Indian food cooked traditionally and authentically. Attractively sleek and neutral, Chettinad is a warm, comfortable restaurant with a contemporary look and feel and invitingly friendly service from experienced and efficient staff. The menu here at Chettinad is based around the famed culinary region of the aforementioned Tamil Nadu, a land bordered by the Arabian sea and the mountainous Western Ghats, resulting in a wide array of produce and flavours particular to the area. Chettinad draws on many specialties of Tamil Nadu, using fresh, flavoursome ingredients to recreate the grain and vegetable heavy dishes as well as the famed masala dosa, doubtless the signature dish of the region. A change from the usual tandoori style Indian cookery found in London, Chettinad provides locals and visitors with an opportunity to further explore the cuisine of India in chic surroundings under the guidance of talented chefs and knowledgeable waiting staff.

Absolutely no value for money, have eaten in many Indian restaurants but this place did not live up to our expectations. The manager did not even know which sauces were served with their thali.

Delicious food with wonderful flavours at a very reasonable price. Excellent service. We'll be back. I was part of the group mentioned in NeilD's report and agree with his comments. I would add that we were the ones making most of the noise!

We chose this place based on the reviews and the fact that it was located close to our hotel. We asked for recommendations and were not disappointed with our meal. Everything was interesting, complex, and delicious, and very reasonably priced. Excellent staff. Pleasurable all around experience. Would definitely come back.

After an excellent meal with a friend a couple of months ago, I chose the Chetinnad for a reunion of work colleagues. It was with some trepidation that I booked a table for 16 but I'm very pleased that my concerns were unfounded. It seems that regardless of the size of the group, both the kitchen and Ranjit, our waiter,... More

Myself and two friends visited this restaurant one evening for dinner. We are all keen curry eaters and were looking forward to the delights on offer given the very positive reviews. We ordered 3 mains: Chettinadu Kolli, Eral Curry and Kadala Kulambu. The latter was enjoyed. but the former two were distinctly average - the Chettinadu Kolli tasted nothing more... More
