Seriously one to avoid. Ah, we thought, fish curries, South Indian (Sri Lankan) spices. Nothing like it. My Goan fish curry was appalling. I began to wonder if could have done better by tipping DIY curry sauce into a tin of pilchards, until it dawned...More

Very good food as everything is made from scratch... you really can tell! Only downside is it takes a lifetime! Plus the staff could crack a smile now and again?!

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!
