“chutney indian food at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

i visited the chutney restaurant in the metropolitan hotel and i must say that the food is excellent.I personally recommend the chicken starter and the butter chicken with the small size breads that were served was really tasty.
i would like to thank the manager of the restaurant as i was with my American friends and the manager suggested us all the correct dishes which were less spicy and extremely tasty..
I would recommend that all guests and people wanting to eat good , clean, authentic indian food to visit Chutney..

Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights while on a business trip in Delhi. The hotel's location was good, close to Janpath but nothing really else to do nearby.

The rooms are good size and clean, though it wasn't exactly "luxurious" as one would expect from a 5-star hotel, considering we were dating on the club floor already.

The services were slightly disappointing, especially the restaurant's, with slow service and missing egg order all the time... My boss ordered his eggs three times with nothing happening... He got frustrated and left his set plate back on the stack of clean plates, and it stayed there for 20 minutes...

More weirdly, the shower in the room wasn't working... The water pressure kept going on and off and the water kept switching the shower head on its own from the rainfall shower...

All in all, a good decent hotel but wouldn't expect anything about it to be luxurious...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in January 2013. The room was modern, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom (with is fantastic shower) was clean and inviting. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Location-wise, the hotel is a 10-15-minute walk to Connaught Place and the central Rajiv Chowk metro station, from where you can get to anywhere in Delhi. The food and service at the hotel's Japanese restaurant, Sakura, were excellent. Coming from New York, we can be picky about our cocktails; but Sakura's wasabi martinis were top-notch.

I come in Delhi for business every month since 5 years ago, sometime after hard days of traveling all around India.
Arriving at The Met is always a pleasure; staff is efficient and full of courtesy, NeoVeda SPA is one of the most relaxing I have found in hotels premises , the Zing restaurant always ready to serve excellent food.
But I repeat, for me, what really makes the difference is the people working here.
Everybody makes me fell like to be at home and help me in enjoying the few hours I can spend in hotel.
I really can’t expect a better service.

Room Tip: just choose a non smoking room

The Met is a Euro standard hotel at Euro prices unless you get a deal. It is a great place to kick off a tour of India and their airport pick up is a good luxury option ater an overnight flight. We stayed both on our arrival and on departure.
When we arrived we thought it a bit below par but after 3 weeks in India we decided it was a very good hotel! Maybe our standards slipped a bit.
As others have said, the taxes add a fair bit to the bill. Have a look at the shop, it is great to be able to browse in peace and we wish we had bought a few mpre things there. The taxis arranged by the hotel are honest and good value so are great for excursions.

Room Tip: On our return we had a better room or maybe it just fealt that way, but in general in India if you s...

I was recommended this hotel by my travel agent. I was going to be here by myself for one day before my husband arrived and I was arriving in the middle of the night, so I needed somewhere convenient. Transfer to the hotel was quick and easy and check in was immediate. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are very clean. I used the spa which was wonderful and relaxing. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous and fresh. All the staff are friendly and attentive. Pooja at Reception was very helpful with advice on where to go and what to see. The Chutney restaurant has excellent food and I would recommend the Chutney Bar for Happy Hour. I would definitely stay here again. Front office staff were all very helpful.
