Eating means to celebrate and to bring people together
The very utterance of the word 'Chettinad' stirs our palate, and we smell an aroma out of the blue, mixed in the air, as our mind recalls the once tasted Chettinad food. From time immemorial this traditionally and historically known region is noted for its cuisine, agriculture and architecture.
Chettinad the most outstanding feature is the cuisine.
The main thing about the authentic restaurant is that it refuses to be put into a box. And that’s the thing about the food at “The Chettinad” as well. Young and fun, yet rooted in traditions that span the length and breadth of this country, with all its varied topographies and cultures and histories. The experience at the “The Chettinad” is a party, as well as, a bit of a history lesson.
Of all the aspects of Chettinad, the most outstanding feature is the cuisine. No restaurant would miss out on Chettinad Chicken on its menu and its rich, spicy taste gratifies the Indian's and the Norwegian's palette to a greater extent. The popular, appetizing Chettinad dishes include Pepper Chicken and Varuval. The speciality of the masala made by using sundried assortments pounded on pestles provides earthy flavour. And the restaurant is known to change things up.
What doesn’t change, though, is the quality of what’s on your plate, and the warmth with which it is presented to you. The service deserves special applause – the staff here are warm and friendly, they really know the menu, and they will remember what you liked (and didn’t) the next time you visit. Because you will visit again.
