Nice Indian

It's a few years since we last visited Chutney Joes and that's for no other reason than we hadn't really been in the area. But we had a very nice meal with excellent friendly service and it's nice to find a place with some different (Nepalese) dishes. It had been a while but we will certainly go... read more

To be fair, my original visit was quite a few years ago, so my basis for comparison is somewhat lacking. However, it is not as good as it used to be. When I have visited before on a Saturday, it has been packed. When we recently visited on a Saturday, it was empty. Just us 4 and another table. So... More

went for the lunchtime special, and after hearing great reviews about the place I was really looking forward to it. Plus we are huge fans of Indian cuisine! Have to say was not impressed.....the food wasn't hot when it came out (there was only 4 people in there so no excuse) and the tikka masala was bland, the poppadoms and... More

My diet coke was flat as a pancake, the food was bland and had no spice and after we had finished our meal I watched the waiter take the sauce (that accompanied my meal) off my table and give it to the table next to us. I had paid for the sauce as part of my meal and for all... More

The menu was very extensive something for everyone. We decided to choose from the chef's specials and we were not disappointed. The flavours were beautiful and the presentation... More

The food is simply delicious and the staff are very firendly. The food presentation is awesome. Nice ambience adds to the dinning experience. This is the best Indian restaurant in Brentwood...without a doubt!
