Visited this restaurant yesterday for the first time. Having frequented numerous so-called Indian restaurants in this area and been constantly disappointed, Chutneys was a pleasant surprise. The seating is rather squashed, so not much privacy (it's hard to hold a conversation). The gentleman who waited on us , who I presume to be the owner, was extremely efficient and welcoming.... More

Four of us made reservations for lunch, one was a lady in a wheelchair with other disabilities. Ash, the owner and chef was very welcoming and accommodating as he helped with menu choices and service for the person with special needs. We all ordered different Indian and Greek dishes and everyone was pleased and amazed at the large portions. We... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal at Chutney's, Etc. The service was very friendly, helpful, informative about choices and suggestions. Since we are vegan, the owner was most accommodating in offering to alter any item to make it vegan. The spinach pikoras were out of sight, and we had samplings of 4 different entrees. When we asked for... More

Delicious! Hottest Vindaloo in town! Service was good, but busy. Menu is very extensive with Greek and Indian specialties. Full board of enticing specials and deserts!

There's a lot of variety on the menu for vegetarians and carnivores alike. For just under $15.00 you get a choice of 2 middle eastern or 2 Indian dishes. These come with a greek salad and home-made pita bread with additional rice for the Indian plates. It's a lot of food and though I'm not particularly a pita fan, the... More

Chutneys has Indian and greek food -- my wife and I went to the Indian side and were not disappointed. Since it was our first time there, we had the sampler appetizer (excellent), a salad and then split a dish that had a chicken curry and a lamb curry. The chicken was described as "for beginners" which we finished. The... More

The sign now claims it is a Greek/Mediterranean restaurant, but at least 1/3 of the menu is still Indian. I sampled the Greek selections and they were okay. The stuffed grape leaves had been pre-made, but the hummus was a joy. Soup of the day was a noodle curry tofu combination and quite different. Service, as promised by others, borders... More

A group (6) of us had dinner at Chutney's, we all had something different and there was not a scrap left on anyone's plate ! The service was outstanding, the food excellent and the price was quite fair. Their menu is interesting, middle East and Greek. They are very accommodating, allow you to mix-n-match. This is not a fancy place... More

Great food. Amazing choice of a variety of very interesting dishes. Moderately priced and top quality. Friendly and efficient in a small, casual setting. A fun place for an unusual dining experience.
