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"

My friend and I were wandering around looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled upon this restaurant. With no experience with Southern Indian food we asked our waiter Arif to help us pick our dish. He went above and beyond and decided to take it into his own hands to choose the food for us to try, while we just sat back and enjoyed the meal. It was a great experience: fantastic food and even better service. Would highly recommend and would love to eat there again.

These lads do it like back home. The dosa is flaky and crispy and the the ghee dosa is truly sumptous.

This is a very intimate southern Indian restaurant and well worth visiting. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are satisfying. The Dosa look huge but very light and full of flavour ( if you like spice you can ask for extra heat). The menu is different but typical southern India and design to encourage you to order something different! The staff are very accommodating and knowledgeable. The drinks menu reasonably priced. Well worth a visit
