Due to government advice and with the safety and wellbeing of our staff and customers we have taken the difficult decision to close Chennai restaurant and takeaways at end of business on Saturday 28th March until this passes over. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Welcome to Chennai
A small introduction to our establishment and the cuisine we are about to present to you.
Modern India is one of the most diverse countries in the world, it is made up of 25 states and 7 territories and its people use 18 different languages and practice 7 major religions. So you can imagine how complex our culinary is.
The type of Indian food found in the majority of Indian restaurants is based on a very successful menu formula, true original version of these restaurants were run by Punjabis in India where they served a mixture of Punjabi cuisine such as tandoori and mughal dishes such as korma and biryanni, as the popularity grew the menu was established then replicated in new restaurants (hence most Indian restaurants have a very similar menu), although there is a vast amount of dishes on these menus they represent a tiny section of Indian cuisine.
Chennai wanted to bring more to this menu not by adding more dishes but using different combinations of spices from different areas such as Goa, Rajestan, Bengal and Kashmir bringing orignality to every dish.
We stock a huge amount of herbs and spice and work with 3/4 chefs each from different backgrounds with different knowledge and experience.
Today we would whole-heartedly like to say this has been a very successful process.
Enjoy your evening; please do not hesitate to make any suggestions all our staff are at hand.
