Nice meal, great cocktails and a good experience

Chutney Ivy is in a great loacation for me in Leicester City Centre as it is near many of the local bars I go to. The venue is nice, clean and attractive. They had a jazz band playing music last time I went which was a pleasant surprise. They have a very good drinks menu, I really enjoyed their... read more

Travelled from South Yorks border for an overnight stay for the sole purpose of a birthday meal here. We were left 30 mins to be seated at our table & although menus had been given to us no order was taken prior to seating. It took 1 hour 25 mins from our arrival for the 1st course to arrive &...

The 6 of us enjoyed the Chutney Ivy Feast and several amazing quality cocktails over a long, leisurely lunch to celebrate my birthday. The service was second to none and attention to detail made our experience enjoyable and fun. I enjoyed sampling different dishes with my friends in a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. The approach of the staff allowed lfe... More

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant in early May of this year. We were recommended it by friends and we loved it as much as them. Superb authentic food and great service from Professional staff. We are all looking forward to returning in the near future.

First visit and would highly recommend. Brilliant, friendly welcome. Lovely music played in the background by a saxophone player, later a lady sang. It was a nice touch! Food and service were super. Will go again!! Plus it's accessible!

Wow!! What can I say about this restaurant that will do it justice? From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and shown to the lounge while our table was ready. We were given the menus and left to choose, but not for too long before our drinks order was taken. We were shown to our table, and even... More

Chutney Ivy is a very nice restaurant..clean and the decor is nice too. The food is tasty and I though the service was good. I would recommend the meat/vegetarian platters. Its not the best indian restaurant out there, but also not the worst. Is definitely worth a visit.

It seems we only go to this restaurant when we get vouchers but having said that we do enjoy eating there. We have only had the "taster" menus so far but they do give you a flavour of what the restaurant can do. The food is of excellent quality and is so convenient for events in Leicester's Cultural Quarter, both... More

Having heard so much about it, I was definitely going in with very high expectations. And since I eat Indian food all the time, I wasn't sure if I would find anything exciting on the menu. But I was surprised to read names of dishes I'd never heard of before! I ordered Shagorer Mis-rito Puree as the starter, very different... More
