I get to Sarasota one every couple of months. I discovered this little gem on my last visit about two months ago and had lunch there again today. They serve Middle Eastern and Indian food and it is sooo good...FRESH and delicious. The owners are really friendly. It was filled with locals, which means a lot. The prices are great.... More

We visited Chutney's to celebrate our anniversary and, as usual, were delighted with the food, which is amazing, the service, consistently exceptional, and the best Flan and Bread Pudding I've ever had! Ash and Denise go out of their way to ensure that their patrons have an enjoyable time, as well as the very best food we've found in the... More

We enjoyed very much our experience at Chutneys Restaurant. We were eating vegan at the time and chose a vegan curry. It was delicious! It's a small and seemingly one-off restaurant that has a very nice, friendly ambiance. Great food and service!

Wow. What a gem. We were so pleased with our meals which were served quickly and piping hot. And the service was fantastic. Friendly, responsive - I never had to ask for my water glass to be filled. Informal, relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for after work or on vacation.

I try not right bad reviews of local restaurants, but I could not help it with this one. It was that bad. I am a long time resident of Sarasota and live less than a mile from Chutney's. I dine out most meals and the taste of choice for my family is always Indian cuisine. To start things off, there... More

I went because of all the good reviews but was not impressed. The food was average. Service was OK, but the waiter (owner?) seemed to be in a hurry to get us out of there. Will not be returning.

This is my favorite type of neighborhood restaurant--charming, cozy, relaxing, and welcoming. Go there to joy unpretentious food served up by owners who greet you warmly, in the company of other regular customers who are happy to be there. It is well worth the drive if the Hillview area is not your neighborhood. Ashwin and Denise, your hosts, are the... More

This is one of our favorite Indian restaurants in Sarasota. I am very particular about cleanliness and overall feeling when I enter any restaurant. I found this little gem of a place when I was looking for a spot to grab a solo meal before a show at the Van Wezel. The owner, Ash and his wife Denise are very... More
