Chettinad Restaurant says

Named after a prosperous banking and business district in Southern Tamil Nadu, Chettinad Restaurant in London’s West End specialises in Southern Indian food cooked traditionally and authentically. Attractively sleek and neutral, Chettinad is a warm, comfortable restaurant with a contemporary look and feel and invitingly friendly service from experienced and efficient staff. The menu here at Chettinad is based around the famed culinary region of the aforementioned Tamil Nadu, a land bordered by the Arabian sea and the mountainous Western Ghats, resulting in a wide array of produce and flavours particular to the area. Chettinad draws on many specialties of Tamil Nadu, using fresh, flavoursome ingredients to recreate the grain and vegetable heavy dishes as well as the famed masala dosa, doubtless the signature dish of the region.

Although I had phoned and booked this restaurant earlier in the day, when our group arrived, they had no trace of the booking at all. However, they still managed to find us a table. When our orders were delivered to the table one of our dishes was missing and they had to go away and cook it. Not good. Although the food was tasty, the portions are very small indeed. The curries consisted mostly of gravy with only a few pieces of meat. For the price of the dishes, I felt this was a rip off. The bread was hard.Finally when paying the bill, I discovered that we were being charged for 3 portions of rice, even though we only had two. On mentioning this they rectified the bill. I will not be eating at the Chettinad in Percy Street, London ever again, and would not recommend it as a place to eat.
