We went to this place after 2 years hoping it had improved. Turns out it was the same. Appams turned out to be think dosas. Iddiyappam was average. The Chettinad chicken curry was the best of the lot.

Chettinad is located in a strip mall about 2 miles from the Mall. Worth the drive for Indian cuisine. Typical items on the menu. My party had garlic pasta that also had strong curry-based preparation which was not advertised. Big portion but a bit too...More

When we visited the Chettinad Indian Grill, we did not enter with extremely high expectations. The establishment is small and tucked into a strip mall. However, we were very pleasantly surprised. We began our meal with Dosa and Daal Soup. My husband had the Mutton...More

Awesome service from Romeo. Mysore masala dosa was yummy but idlis were over-cooked and hard twice. They were kind enough to give me a free replacement to take out with me but the second order was the same. Loved the Mango Lassi!
