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"

We went spontaneously to the restaurant and asked for a table without a reservation, which was no problem. We orderd various dishes and all of them were really delicious, best indian food i have ever tasted... The location is very easy to find and central, just one street next to oxford street. The waiters were really friendly and we didnt have to wait long for the food. Can only recommend everyone to go there!! :)

Looked on trip advisor for South Indian restaurant in area we were on holiday. Excellent choice. Ate here this evening and very much enjoyed the food. The staff are attentive and the food can be as mild or hot as you like. Flavours subtle and string come through. Highly recommended. Will return when next in London.

We visited this restaurant on the 25th of November after reading lots of reviews on this site. I have to say that every positive view was correct as the food, staff and building itself were perfect. The menu here is very short with limited main courses but when you eat here you'll understand why. The food is cooked to absolute perfection and can honestly say that every last mouthful was wonderful. To start with, the mixed nut nibble type starters were so unusual but fantastic. Then the main course, one chicken and one lamb, spiced perfectly as requested by us and advised by Zaman who very helpful. Served with tomato rice which was so light and tasteful and accompanied by two different breads that were the best I've ever eaten. The whole experience was superb, the tastes were fantastic and the staff great. And reasonably priced too.

In my travels to London, I always made a point to visit my favorite Indian restaurant. On my most recent visit, I took a recommendation from the hotel I was staying and it turned out to be a fabulous visit. Everything from the food, to the service, to the atmosphere, were outstanding! Had a chance to meet the owner, and every menu suggestion he made was better than the next. Chettinad is now my new London favorite! Can't wait to go back when I have the opportunity.
