Gastronomic Extravagance!

Decided to drop by Chutneys when we stayed in Colombo to see what the hype was about. It was truly a gastronomically extravagant experience. The menu featured cuisines from all the southern Indian states and we were torn between ordering a few different dishes. Ended up trying the Dosa thali which... read more

Chutneys is a large modern restaurant in the 5 star Cinnamon Grand Hotel. The decor and ambiance is glamorous, with wall to wall windows. My partner's smart cropped trousers were deemed to be 'shorts' by the maitre'd, and he was given a sarong to wear as local costume is acceptable. Service was slick, sometimes a bit too showy, but also... More

Dosa is great. Curd Vadai is authentic Chennai! Good ambience. Bit crowded. But then, when food is good, crowd is bound to be there!!

The table arrangement was very close and not easy to have a personal chat with family or friends while dining. The food was expensive but tasty!!!

I have been here before but today was the best. We were served by Captain Sugeertharan, who was very sensible and friendly. He even gave us some good recommendations. My father ordered Meen Polichadu, a fish preparation covered with banana leaf. It was delicious! In a nut shell good food and even better hospitality especially Sugeertharan's hospitality.

Had my first visit to Chutneys recently. I loved it. The staff were engaging and attentive. The food was super and beautifully presented. I ordered the non vegetarian Thali and was not disappointed. So much food and they kept coming back offering more! Don't know bout value for money as it was a treat, but would certainly come back.
