Medium spiced chutney

Decent food, quite pricey and not overly friendly service. Would go again but not in a hurry. A Tikka Massala of a restaurant.

We had to wait 50 minutes for the starters, even though the restaurant was empty when we arrived! Were asked four times during that period if we wanted more drinks (obviously profitable). Indian potato cake was bland and lukewarm. Duck samosas had little discernible meat flavour, let alone duck. Chicken and lamb main courses were fairly average. This restaurant is... More

As a Canadian prairie gal, I don't get a lot of Indian food besides the usual samosas and butter chicken. I figured since Leicester is the curry capital of the UK, I'd not go wrong in a restaurant, and I was right. I ate a pre-theatre dinner at Chutney Ivy and it was wonderful. The waiter discussed with me my... More

As I stayed in the next door hotel, I thought of giving the Chutney Ivy a chance. I found some good and bad reviews, though didn't want to spend 15 minutes walking for a good Indian meal. The restaurant has a Michelin recommendation, which should mean it is good. I had diner with 3 people and we selected a set... More

Visited here for the second time as I was attracted by a Groupon deal. Starters and mains for £12.50 . The food was certainly good value for money at those prices. The restaurant advertises that it has Michelin recommendation for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015. I have to say that there was little to distinguish Chutney Ivy from many restaurants... More
