Anjappar has some serious credentials, starting life in Chennai in 1964 and now, with the addition of this Palmer Green restaurant, operating two outlets in the UK. Here in London, along Green Lanes and equidistant between Wood Green and Palmers Green underground stations (and close to the Bounds Green/bowes Park hub), Anjappar continue to be outstanding ambassadors of Chettinad regional Indian cuisine. Light and spicy South Indian set meals, special thali ideal for sharing, vegetarian and non vegetarian curries, saag, kadai, jalfrezi, and even some Indo-Chinese delicacies dot the long and thoughtful menu. North London has never had it so good – book now to avoid disappointment.
I remember this place as Madras Cafe and I'm pleased to say the menu is very similar so I was able to get my favourite Onion Rava Dosa. But it is so much more. Great service, delicious great value food and a selection of beers you'd expect and wine brands you are familiar with. Highly recommended and can't wait to return. They also do lunchtime specials. GO!
We visited Anjappar after reading the excellent reviews and we are certainly glad we did. Excellent food with friendly service and extremely good value! Would highly recommend for anyone seeking authentic and tasty south Indian food in North London.
I ordered paper roast and it was done brilliantly. Really thin and crispy and the whole family enjoyed it very much. Not very busy when we went so service was attentive and quick.
