Great value buffet, surprisingly good for the price

To be frank I wasn't expecting much from the lunch buffet considering how cheap it was, but I was pleasantly surprised. We had a good variety of vegetable and meat curries, pakoras, naan, rice, salad, yoghurt -- couldn't have asked for more, really. The staff were courteous and prompt. The only... read more

This restaurant could be top notch, but needs freshening up. Very tired looking and cramped on the inside, customer service needs sharpening up and the whole place could do with tidying and tables reorganised as it's very cramped. The food is very good and the restaurant is in the perfect location.

Nice welcome from the owner however the waiter didnt look like he knew what a smile was. The meal was mediocre and the rice looked Microwaved..The main course Dosa may as well have been a Burrito..It certainly didnt look like the dosa offered just down the road at Dosapark...I shall not be rushing back.

Chutneys food is mostly good. The buffet is excellent. But the last few times I have had some very rude and patronising service from a waiter that has tainted the evening. A real shame.

This place does not have ambience. It screams cheap and scruffy. However the food is up to the mark and my wife said the female toilets are clean and the staff are attentive and checked up on us throughout our meal. The menu makes a great play that it puts vegetarians first and my veggie wife was very pleased with... More

Dropped in without a reservation before going to see a concert. Although already busy the staff were very friendly and helpful. We were seated quickly and offered drinks and the menu. The atmosphere is rustic and simple but the menu is excellent. When the food arrived the unlit you was excellent and the portions huge! My wife and I thoroughly... More

Popped in completely on the off chance as we were passing and the smells were enticing. Couldn't fault the food, really tasty, not just spicy. Very friendly service. Would definitely recommend. Can't understand the poor reviews, frankly.

All the dishes were well-cooked and were rated as to how hot each was, so there were no surprises. The Peshwari Naan was excellent - the best I have ever had. Service was a bit on the slow side, but there were 22 of us and a stag party there. It was a lively place, not a dull moment but... More
