Wonderful variety of food

Something for everyone on an extensive menu. Some items highly spiced in the Indian section but still very tasty. Cam with a large salad and Naan bread, prices reasonable and service good.

I try not right bad reviews of local restaurants, but I could not help it with this one. It was that bad. I am a long time resident of Sarasota and live less than a mile from Chutney's. I dine out most meals and the taste of choice for my family is always Indian cuisine. To start things off, there... More

I went because of all the good reviews but was not impressed. The food was average. Service was OK, but the waiter (owner?) seemed to be in a hurry to get us out of there. Will not be returning.

This is my favorite type of neighborhood restaurant--charming, cozy, relaxing, and welcoming. Go there to joy unpretentious food served up by owners who greet you warmly, in the company of other regular customers who are happy to be there. It is well worth the drive if the Hillview area is not your neighborhood. Ashwin and Denise, your hosts, are the... More

This is one of our favorite Indian restaurants in Sarasota. I am very particular about cleanliness and overall feeling when I enter any restaurant. I found this little gem of a place when I was looking for a spot to grab a solo meal before a show at the Van Wezel. The owner, Ash and his wife Denise are very... More

Left disappointed, they charged us extra than indicated on the menu. I ordered vegetarian appetizer and dish, but they charged me the meat price. I asked about it quietly when I paid, but the owner just kind of snapped at me loud enough for everyone to hear. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it in front... More

Friends who we were visiting took us here, describing it as a place that they thought we would love as much as they do. They were right. This place is a small gem. Unfancy, homey, friendly. The offerings are both Indian and Persian. My wife and I had Indian, and our friends had Persian. The quality of the food was... More

The restaurant offers an interesting selection of Indian, middle eastern and European dishes that compliment each other well. If you are new to Indian food, then be aware that it is easy to get carried away and over-order – best to select a couple of dishes first, then order more if you need them – the kitchen and service are...

A little gem of a place with amazing food, a cosy ambience and an excellent local social scene. The food here is incredible- you can try a plethora of extremely tasty dishes for your main meal and you will also get served a great Mediterranean salad entrée and the best pita bread on the planet. And if you are still... More
