baseline: i love indian food

I especially love South Indian food, which tends to be mainly vegetarian where I typically eat. But South Indian isn't very common here so I was happy to be introduced. My weakness is (are?) idlis, mainly as a delivery system for coconut chutney and they have both here but I wasn't able to test the... read more

Dropped by here for a late, light lunch. It was very quiet, being the middle hours between lunch and supper, but the staff were friendly and helpful and the food still arrived quite promptly. The food was delicious, and reminded my partner of Mamak Malaysian-Indian food. The whole meal, plus drinks, was under $40, which was very fair for the... More

Next time you have a craving for chutney villa i would advise you to go around back and have a peak through the kitchen door at the conditions back there. Its downright horrifying! Like Kitchen Nightmares bad! I will never eat there again. Damage has been done. I am mortified.

Unique South Indian dishes made very tasty. South Indian coffee was a great hit with our family. Chick peas and coconut dish for an appetizer was very good. I recommend the "thali" instead of dosa. Masala utappam was also very good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to taste some good South Indian food.

This was an interesting change from the usual Northern Indian cuisine that is more common in the lower mainland. It is a small restaurant that seems like you might be entering a convenience store from the outside but its very clean and pleasant inside. Despite some of the reviews we had very good service and both servers were friendly and... More

It makes me really sad to have to write this negative review. I decided to do Dine Out again here since we had such a good experience last year. I made reservations for 7 people. The waitress was the only person working the whole restaurant (she was great despite how busy she was and the fact that at one point... More

We've eaten several times at Chutney Villa with friends. All of us have found the food to be excellent. The New York Times review of Vancouver's Indian restaurants said that this surprisingly good restaurant "takes on the flavors of South India with an unstudied exuberance " and a wonderful combination of spices and textures that - in at least one...

I went to Chutney Villa during Dine Out 2015. This was my first visit to this restaurant and I went with 3 other people. As a vegetarian and a foodie, I look forward to Dine Out Vancouver every January. I am so pleased to see so many restaurants offer vegetarian options on their Dine Out menus. Chutney Villa has many... More

As an Indian and one fond of good Indian food I recommend Chutney Villa for its authentic south Indian cuisine. We have eaten at many Indian restaurants and cook Indian food at home quite regularly so I know of what I write here. We ate at Chutney Villa through Dine-Out Vancouver and we were both so impressed with the quality... More

They struggled to keep up with a full room and our large group but the server was calm, friendly and took the time to explain the menu to us. Do not go here if you want fancy decor. If you want great southern Indian this is the place. The food was delicious with large servings and lots of different options.... More
