Madras Chettinaad is located in Alpharetta, GA. Within close proximity to neighboring cities like Atlanta, it's a favorite place for Indian families to gather on weekends for an authentic family meal. At lunch, many of the nearby office workers patronize the restaurant’s buffet for a quick and tasty lunch. Owner and operator, Narendra Patel spent many years working some of the top hotel chains in the restaurant and hospitality sector and transferred this experience over to Madras Chettinaad. This is evident in both the décor and food.

The décor is beautiful with vibrant colors and a rich feel including the granite tables that were shipped over from India to complete the look. During lunch, the restaurant offers a fabulous buffet with dozens of selections. Included are various kinds of rice, bread, curries and more. Of course, there are many vegetarian options, but there are also lots of meat-centric dishes, too.
One of the most popular menu items are the Dosais. These are like a huge crepe, filled with delicious toppings. They are so large that two people could easily share the entrée and be satisfied. Unlike many other Indian restaurants, they will customize the spice level for orders at dinner.
The restaurant also does a huge catering business for parties and weddings. For those that would like to host their event onsite at Madras Chettinaad, they have several large rooms for private events as well.
