    Chutneys: Indian Vegetarian Food

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went here with a big group of people, midweek and we had the downstairs area entirely to ourselves. The staff were very friendly and helpful and were confident to advise the vegans in the group as to which dishes would suit them or could be adapted for them and also suggested dishes to try for those that were not familiar with the dishes on the menu. The menu offers snacks and starters, south Indian dishes like dosas and a Gujarati thali menu too plus a selection of vegetable dishes to be seved with rice or breads and everyone found something to suit them.

    The orders were taken quite quickly but the food came bit by bit rather than altogether, which I suppose can happen when so many people are eating as a group. It was certainly delicious and we really enjoyed the meal. Even at this time, when several people had forgotten what they ordered, the staff managed to make sure everyone had what they'd ordered without getting flustered, whilst still finding time to check that everyone was happy and enjoying their food.

    The surroundings are simple but nice and clean and the plates were cleared efficiently as each person finished and the bill was managed well, which can often be difficult in a large group.

    Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed the masala dosa, which smelt wonderful as it arrived, was very tasty and beautifully crispy at the edges. The potato filling was delicious and mine disappeared very quickly! The samosas were quite good too with lots of peas in the filling, which I prefer as it makes them less heavy than the mainly potato filled ones, although I do usually prefer the softer homemade pastry more than the crunchly spring roll type outside that this retaurant uses.
