Got take out of several dishes. My favorites were the chili chicken (an Indochinese dish than traditional Indian flavors), tandoori chicken curry, shrimp vindaloo curry. We also tried the alu gobi (curried cauliflower and potato) and curry egg plant dishes that were fair. The accompanying rice and roti naan was average. Perhaps because we got take out the naan got...

The service is efficient and attentive and the atmosphere is great, thanks to the tasteful decor. This is not my favorite Indian buffet when it comes to the food. The palak paneer was bland, the condiments lacked heat (and a sour chutney option) and there was no dal of any kind. The food was tasty enough but I was missing... More

The food was wonderful. We were going to pick a favorite dish out of the four we ordered but we couldn't pick just one. Everything was delicious! Service was excellent too.

Chutney's offers a more refined dining experience than any other Indian cuisine venue in Vancouver. The ambiance is tastefully done and the staff are helpful. Our meals were tasty and presented well. Food was hot on arrival ("the first duty of food is to be hot"). Sadly, the nan was old and cardboard-like. This would have been a five star... More

As you can see from my earlier post, that I loved this restaurant. I have since been back, and learned that the original owner (Usha) has moved on, and the food now the food is not as good. It is still the best Indian food in Vancouver, but it is not nearly as tasty as it once was.

I was surprised that our beloved Chutneys appears to have changed hands and yet retained it's name. But after sampling their buffet lunch I was glad to see that the food is still very tasty and the levels of service still seem to be high. I came for lunch with the gal I went to lunch with almost every day... More

As the title inplies. I ordered "Make your eyes water.". and the food was simply slightly hotter than mild. The ingredient quality was OK, but the flavor of the spices was unisnpired. Since the place was patronized by other Indians I was hopeful the food would be better than what I got. If this constitutes good best in the Portland... More

We have eaten at Chutney's three times and have found the food to be outstanding each time. The selection is better than other Indian restaurants and the food is beautiful to look at as well as being quite tasty. The restaurant (even the restrooms!) is tastefully decorated and comfortable. Definitely one of our favorite Indian restaurants anywhere!

Been here a few times. We asked for our food extra spicy and it was not. They did bring us some hot sauce for an entree they said they could not customize, but the curry we ordered was definitely mild. We ordered an appetizer that came after our entree.... they said they would comp it but did not. Food was... More
