Madras has a great selection of authentic South India food with some North Indian classics. The dosas, fish biryani and Kottu are excellent. Yum yum!

First time visit to this restaurant. We were looking for a restaurant to eat out. We was told about the madras restaurant by someone in the street. We ordered spicy vada, masala dosa and Chole bhature .All of the dish was cooked well and tasty.

A revelation! I echo everything in the other positive reviews - the best dosa I have eaten and really interesting selection of non bog-standard dishes, cooked fresh and non-oily. My new go-to place locally, without a doubt!

This is one of the best south Indian restaurants in London. It doesn't have fancy decor and service is unrefined but friendly. However, the food is fresh and unlike many other Indian restaurants it isn't swimming in oil (and my son's Korma didn't have a...More

Ordered a curry last night from this local restaurant and I cannot describe how disappointed I am with it. The curry was watery and bread tasted like playdoh! The rice was stuck together in clumps and meat was 99% fat 1% chewy. After looking at...More
