Amalgamated in deep rooted traditions and homely taste buds, Jaffna house celebrates the best of Indian & Sri Lankan palate.
We started our journey as a corner site in 1991 as a modern café/take away with some 20 odd sets and a display cabinet.
We have been awarded cobra good curry award in 2004
It all started with our unconditional love with Tamil culture & food.
‘Jaffna House’ got its name from the city of Jaffna at Sri Lanka, which was perfectly appropriate for what we wanted to establish.
Our deep rooted Indian traditions guide us in all our endeavors to provide a fulfilling and joyful experiences to everybody associated with us.
Our ancestors thought us that “The guest is equivalent to God”.
This reflects in the way we produce and serve our food. We have a well-trained and passionate team to make sure that the experiences of each of our guests are unique and enjoyable.
At Jaffna house our staffs ensure highest standards of professionalism with a friendly and happy outlook.
Here we give priority in sourcing fresh raw material from the best vendors of the town.
At Jaffana House we believe in ‘Health is Wealth’, and its relevance these days. We ensure that health of our guests is prioritized in all the processes involved.
To bring the rustic, traditional and authentic flavors from distant lands of India and Sri Lanka, its important to follow the same traditional methods. Hence our Chefs are trained with these traditional crafts and methods to bring you some unforgettable experiences.
This place is a hidden gem in tooting . It's down the less busier end of tooting high street. I've often walked past and recently decided to take a chance...oh boy I'm glad I did ! I opted for the 'meat thali' which was a selection of various dishes consisting of a mutton curry, daal ( lentils) curry, spinach curry, pappodoms and cabbage-type side. All of which were spiced and very flavorsome. For such a filling meal - it's very good value.
Food is great and reasonably priced. Having been to Sri Lanka we wanted something to remind us of our trip. I'd recommend the dark fish curry and Dahl. Service was good too. Make sure you drink Lion beer for the full Sri Lankan experience!
My favorite restaurant in the world! We have been going to Jaffna House for almost 20 years and it is still just as good now. TOP quality Sri Lankan and South Indian food... sit back and relax with an ice cold Lion Beer. Things to try: masala dosa, devilled chicken, chicken chat, egg hoppers, fried egg hoppers with chicken, butter chicken, Aubergine curry... ALL amazing!
Jaffana House would love to hear from you.
