“Great buffet - good value for money!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

They have a lunch buffet every day of the week which has lots to choose from - excellent value for money and the food is a mix of Northern and Southern India - very yummy! Plus if you are vegetarian and are pretty strict about how your food is handled in the kitchen by carnivorous hands - they actually have a separate kitchen to prepare food for vegetarians and when they place the food on the buffet - veg/meat dishes are carefully separated.

“Great Indian restaurant in Alpahretta”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

This is a really good restaurant. The food is excellent and the menu is quite large. The service wasn't all that great during my visit. The restaurant has been in business for many years and is always busy.

“Indian Food Perfection”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

The last time I had Indian food as good as this, was in London more than 20 years ago, The food at Madras Chettinad is as good as it gets....Anywhere. The buffet on the 4th of July was really crowded. The fact that a majority of diners were Indian made me certain that this would be a first class eating experience. I was not disappointed. The buffet offers a wide variety of meat dishes like Chicken Tikka and Chicken Tandouri. The goat was tough but then again it always seems to be any where you eat it. The rest was outstanding. The veggies were marvelous and came in a variety of coatings and sauces. There are two buffet bars and each is filled with tasty offerings.

The dessert offerings in Indian Restaurants is usually boring or totally absent. I have always wondered why ice cream wasn't an option. At Madras Chettinad there was a fabulous mango and coffee dish that was like a spun pudding. A fruit dish in a light custard sause was yummy. I am not a fan of rice pudding but it was available as well.

The price for two was under $30.00 with tip. We will return here often.....

“Good for buffet and dinner”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

This is among the best Indian restaurants in Atlanta for both the lunch buffet and dinner. I always try to stop in at least once when I'm back visting.
