Description: Welcome to Chettinad, the world of phenomenal South Indian cuisine. Chettinad is a small village in the Southern Tamil Nadu State of India. Chettinad is known for its culinary delicacies and now is one of the many reasons why people get to know Chettinad. We are a no fuss, no frill, stylish, laid back diner, who just speaks of truly and honest South Indian food in the heart of Central London. We only know how to cook-up good home comfort authentic food freshly made to order with understated approach to service. No meal is complete without traditional Dosa, lentil pancake eaten any time during the day. Well! Certainly it isn't just another Curry House!!! "Ideal place to try something new if you are a South Indian food virgin" Back home in Chettinad, your dishes are served on a huge fresh banana leaf, a disposable platter. Contact with your food is direct and tactile as you eat with your right hand, mixing wet into dry ingredients - a messy business for the uninitiated. In Chettinad Restaurant here, we want you to experience authentic original flavours, therefore you would find some of our dishes served with fresh banana leaf. Today we appreciate and respect that you have entrusted your palate to us, we will take great loving care and take your taste buds on a journey where each mouthful sings a new magical ''WOW'' note. Enjoy your meal at Chettinad- The Village Restaurant, where "QUALITY MEETS TRADIITON"

“5 star Restaurant!!!!!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We were visiting London in August after a night out on the town found this place by chance had the most fantastic Chicken Curry Dish, so good we went again the following night a little more sober this time! Returned again in November for the wife,s birthday this time we let the owner advise us on which meal to have needless to say it was gorgeous,once again it was a Chicken Dish with a Vegetable rice and Pooris which i,ve never tried before the food here is very smooth and delicate, Highly Recommended along with the staff and service, can,t wait to go back

“Really authentic indian food”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

well, this is an overdue review . I visited London last year , during year end holidays. Craving for indian food, this restaurant was the best choice. We had paper thosai, briyani, a special chicken dish ( can`t remember the name) and many more delicious cuisines. It was a lovely atmosphere and we were lucky to have met the owner during our visit twice, he was very warm and welcoming. Must visit spot for tourists looking for Indian cuisines!!

“Delicious authentic Indian food”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Went with a friend and tried an appetizer, fish curry and beef curry. Delicious to say the least.

And prices are fair for London. Definitely recommended.

“Great food, good service, best lunchtime deal, EVER”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We found Chettinads while Christmas shopping, the lunchtime deal was posted on the board outside, which we found hard to believe.
Starting with poppadums and dips we moved on to a thali type tray, each, with a lamb dish, a chicken dish, two vegetable dishes, a potato dish and wonderful fluffy flat breads. The price, a modest £6.95 each.
The beer by the bottle the are happy for you to share and water was provided as if we were paying for it, happily,.
Will we go again, yes, do we tell everyone about it YES.
