Popped in by chance in a Friday evening and despite being very busy, the friendly staff found us a table. The service was impeccable - water served at the get go is always a good sign - and they were sure to check our tolerance...for spice. The food was served efficiently, looking beautiful in the plate - and it tasted delicious. Reasonably priced for this part of town too. Would go again and I’ll be sure to book ahead!More

A meal at the Chettinad never disappoints. As always, the food was beautifully presented and extremely tasty. The service was both friendly and efficient.

Starters were amazing. But the mains were not so much. We ordered squid curry, Prawn curry, seafood curry....and they all tasted the same

Visited with a friend. Had a fish starter and lamb starter, lamb curry and chicken curry, aubergines and some bread which was done in a very unusual way. Presentation and taste was outstanding throughout. It was so busy (8pm) there was not a single free...table. We were lucky as a walk in so id suggest reserving.More

We were excited about their menu, focusing on Southern Indian regional cuisine, and did not disappoint. Although it was Sunday, thought it best to make reservations, and that turned out to be a good move. It was full with an eclectic group of diners; some...20-30 years, and several Indian families. We enjoyed mini dosas and a curry dish that had some heat. That went well with the Indian beers, Kingfisher and Cobra. Our server, Jijo, was attentive and made himself available. Great location; just off Tottenham Court Rd by the British Museum. Will be back on our next visit.More

It was 8 of us and we ordered lots of starters, mains, sides and drinks and the tastes were varied. Some dishes were good and some were too similar to tell if it's chicken or lamb.

I was at the restaurant on 24th September evening. The staff were great but food mediocre at best . The rava dosa was poorly done and the masala had potatoes that were not cooked fully and really very little “masala” , bar the potatoes. Not...a good advert for South Indian food at all .

Amazing. Best dosa restaurant I’ve had outside of the USA. Ordered a masala dosa which came in the perfect condition. Delicately crispy on the outside served with two chutneys on the side. Clean and relaxed setting.

We had a lovely family get together in London with really authentic and tasty curries, both lamb and chicken were great. We had Thali and finished with Halwa, one of my favourite Indian desserts and it was really delicious. As a former judge for Indian...and Bangladeshi cuisine I can say this was a highly rated dining experience. My only criticism was the instant espresso that was served which one does not expect after such a lovely meal… it was taken off the final bill, but honestly if you have a proper coffee machine please only serve proper espresso. Thank you all for a lovely evening.More

Really impressed by the food. So authentic. The aubergine dish especially is truly amazing. What let's the place down though is the waiters whose communication skills need brushing up - each exchange took 3 attempts to get things understood.
