Came here for lunch. Friendly service, good menu - we like to order several dishes and have them all at the same time, which they did, and they were delicious. We had the lamb aadu chukka (nice flavour, but it was rather tough), masala dosa (lovely), chapatis and the keerai parripu (toor dal), which was the star of the show - absolutely delicious.

The prices were very reasonable too - we'll definitely be coming back to try their Monday to Friday lunch menu too, which looks amazing value.

We've had a few curries over many years. This was the best. The food was interesting and perfectly prepared. Wonderful dosas, lovely kingfish curry and a perfectly spiced mild lamb dish.

The service was great. Very friendly, attentive but in no way pushy. Definitely worth a nother visit.

Family meal. Greeted and seated quickly. Only two staff on our visit, whilst taking our order the waiter started to help another table then walk over to the door to greet and seat another group who just entered the restaurant!? Food arrived hot and was mostly tasty. Over priced for portion sizes, which we felt was much smaller than other local restaurants. Table clearance was very slow so we ended up piling empties ourselves. Overall good food, tasty but way over priced. Average value.

We had a lovely meal at Chettinad. The menu offers plenty of choice, but not too much, so its clear that all the dishes are freshly prepared - that was certainly our experience. The staff are very friendly and attentive, without being over-the-top. All in all, earring here was a very enjoyable experience. We tried vegetarian, fish and meat options, and they were all very tasty. We shall definitely return soon.
