Not as expensive as you'd think

A Sri Lanka restaurant in a large classy hotel would not normally be my choice, but we went for a celebration. A bottle of decent cava, four pints of draft beer and food for £85 was very reasonable for four of us. We all ate thali's and my only complaint was that the main meat dish was served in... read more

Great ambiance and service worthy of The Cinammon Grand. The South Indian food is remarkably simple yet tasty fare and Chutneys does a great job with it. I love their signature chutneys that accompany the complimentary papadums at the beginning of the meal. The drinks are well made but the desserts need work.

We love Indian food so decided to come here for dinner although we are staying in another hotel. Decided to go a la carte for fresh cooked and ordered prawns, crab, aubergine and ladies' fingers. With these curries we had rice and poori. The pourris were epic. All the food except the aubergine (tiny portion drowned in sauce) was tasty... More

Having tried and tested the numerous Indian restaurants in Colombo, I do not hesitate to rank Chutneys at the top. An exciting menu offering a range of food from various parts of India is tempting and makes the decision of selection difficult. Having visited Chutneys many times, my family and I have found every new dish unique with distinctive flavor.... More

Wow! There are so many variety of Indian cuisine in one place. You can choose from North, South, or Tamil style cusine. My wife and I love this place and the food was amazing. However, food service is slow and we waited for more than 30-45 minutes for our food.

Tried the traditional 'Thali' and it has enough accompaniments to make it a complete meal! It's is not just the quantity, the taste, presentation, and aroma are not bettered anywhere else I have tried in Colombo. I am not a fan of Indian sweet meats, so no dessert although I must highly recommend the Tamarind Juice which I think is... More
