With such a wide range of offerings in Brentwood, finding an Indian restaurant that has just the right mix of atmosphere and hospitality, along with authentic taste and quality spices and ingredients, is not as easy as one might expect. We hope that once you arrive at Chutney Joe, you will feel it was well worth the journey Initially this restaurant was designed by Blink Interiors of London in 2005 to give a very stylish and contemporary feel in the dining area and a fusion of old, modern and sophisticated with ethnic & cultural hints throughout. With our wealth of experience, you can be sure that Chutney Joe will be a firm favourite for those who enjoy exceptional cuisine for many years to come. Our events team have successfully entertained many top corporate events, for companies such as Deutsche Bank, Channel Four, Metro, The Guardian, The Body Shop, The Rookery Hotel EC1 etc. We have also hosted many 'A' List celebrity parties. We have many years of experience in providing catering to standards of excellence. We believe you will enjoy what we have to offer in this area, as well as our food. Our cuisine is a combination of subtle tastes, fragrant and exotic spices imported from India and are delicately blended to create the original distinctive flavour and aroma.

The food is fantastic, the staff are friendly and the chef has been there for 10 years. Consistency is their middle name. Don't go anywhere else.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal at Chutney Joe's. we hadn't been in a while and were surprised to see the new menu. The menu is very extensive and we opted to choose from the chef's specials and were not disappointed. Very good service and overall a very good evening. We will be back soon.

Bit of a mixed bag review for this venue. Service good. Starter was over flavoured with tandoori spice - unpleasant but rescued by main course which was very good. Coffee pleasant. A bit ££££ for this type of venue. Try and form your own opinion. I have found better.

We visited this place last night and was very disappointed, how the hell it has won awards I do not know!! The place was absolutely freezing, if you end up anywhere near the door, god help you if you haven't got a coat to put on. I had my coat on most of the time. Upstairs going to the loo... More

This used to be our favourite local Indian restaurant but no longer. I visited today with friends from my Cricket Club and we were overcharged by £220. The waiter, who checked the bill before it was handed over, embarrassed my party by loudly checking the total with a calculator at our table, before confirming that the total should have been...

I've been to Chutney Joes several times since it opened. Unfortunately it's been going down hill and the last visit was terrible. The staff are not as friendly as they used to be, the attention to detail in the food presentation has also slipped. Last time, our onion bhajis were cold, as if they had just come out of the...

We could hardly read the menu as it was very dark inside, and the lighting dull, also the tables are a bit on the small side and you feel cramped in. The interior is looking tired and could do with a revamp, but the food was not the best, but not bad.

This is probably the best curry house in Brentwood. The food is good and seems very fresh; not too heavy and you can actually see what vegetables are in the dish. Inside and out looking a bit tired and premises could do with a make over however.
