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"

“Best Indian restaurant ever!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

During our ten days stays in London we ate at this restaurant at least five times. The food was so good and the prices so reasonable that we just kept coming back. The restaurant staff are very welcoming. No doubt we'll visit there again (and again) next time we are in London.

“Simple but effective!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I went here with a couple of friends who were over from Germany and was impressed. The menu doesn't have the 'standard' list you get everywhere it seems and the selection is still varied. The quality is excellent and prices are very reasonable for central London.
I have given service a 4 purely as a result of the waiters forgetting to bring the menu over when first seated until I asked, everything else was good.
I would recommend this place to everyone - the ranking it has is well deserved!
