Very very good, and fairly priced more

Editorial review from GrubHub 12/12/2013

I was extremely dissapointed. My curry was so bland, it was almost like nothing. I also found that the samosas were too greasy and not flavorful. more

Great food! Excellent quantity! more

My order took two hours to arrive. By the time I got my food I was so mad I didn't even want to eat it. I don't care if the food is good. There is no excuse as to why it should take two hours to deliver food. I will not be ordering from here again. more

Wish it was a bit cheaper (we would be ordering a lot more if it was about $10 an entree), but food is excellent. more

I've been going all over Seattle and Bellevue, looking for a go-to Indian place. Although Seattle has excellent Thai, Japanese, French, Italian, and of course Pacific North Western cuisine the Indian is kind of lacking. I'm so glad I came across Chutneys. Now when I crave Indian food I know where to go. They also deliver ;) more

Best delivery Indian food ever. They were 30 min late but it was sooooo worth it. more

Unassuming, but totally worth it! 1/11/2012

We decided to go to Chutney's because of a coupon, it was not busy when we went in and we were skeptical about it even though it is kind of tucked away. We ordered 4 dishes and each one was excellent. The service was great, the restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was very nice. I will totally return whenever I need Indian food. And it was all at a reasonable price. more

awesome food! i think the best indian food i have had in seattle. the only close contender is chilis on university road, but then that is different genre of food. the owner is a very good host. more

Seriously the best curry I have had in Seattle! more

Editorial review from eat24hours.com 5/29/2011

Seriously, this is some of the best Indian food I have ever had! Hands down! Not to mention, I have ordered from other places from this web site with the same type of grub, and this place takes the cake!!!! more


Undercooked crunchy rice paired with watery flavorless sauce..run as fast as you can! 7/29/2008

I usually don't write negative reviews but this is hands down the worst Indian restaurant around. First & last dining experience here! Every dish ordered was lacking authentic flavor and the sauces were watered down. We ordered lamb kabobs (very tough), Chicken Pomegranate & Chicken Korma. Sauces were so runny & consistency quite odd, raita was also very watered down. Main Ingredient in sauces is 90% water 10%salt and 0%Flavor. To make it worse, the rice was undercooked and had some crunch to it. Flavor & spices so lacking. I would never suggest eating here unless you had no choice. No kidding, this is not a good place to eat. Pros: Sorry, nothing to say positive Cons: No Care in food preparation, watered down sauce, undercooked rice more

Editorial review from GrubHub 3/4/2008

Great food, delivered 10 minutes earlier than the estimate for the second time in a row. I suggest the Lamb Kaddhai. more

Editorial review from GrubHub 2/19/2008

The first two times we ordered from here the food was sublime. The rice was delicious--buttery and flavorful, so amazing! Our standard order at every Indian restaurant is vegetable samosa, palak paneer, daal makhani, aloo chole, chicken tikka masala, and plain naan. (Yes, we have lots of leftovers!) With our third order placed February 17, we were so disappointed that I have to question whether they got a new chef! The rice pudding was so thick and sour, it was absolutely inedible. The daal was overly spiced with anise or some licorice flavor. The chicken was too sweet, the palak too salty. The rice, samosa, naan, aloo chole, and gulab jamun were fine, but not stellar. It was truly disappointing, especially when compared against the delicious subtlety and complex flavors of our previous orders. Overall, the odd flavors of the dishes in this order was so off-putting for us that we'll probably revert to India Bistro for a while. Before this experience, we would have rated it five stars. more

YUCK, NEVER AGAIN!!! 11/29/2007

We were looking for a good Indian restaurant to celebrate my birthday (28 Nov)and after reading reviews here, we decided to visit Chutney. We ordered Paneer teeka masala, Mushroom with peas and Chutney's special sauce with vegetable. Order came in less than 5 min, which surprised us, Indian food takes more time to cook. Paneer teeka masala had load of salt in it, we complained to waiter but he rudely replied that ' everyone love this dish and no one complained so far' . He refused to believe us, even though we asked him to taste it. Mushroom with peas was disappointment, there were hardly any mushroom in it and it looked stale. Chutney spoiled my birthday, bad service, rude waiters and crappy food. Do a favor to yourself, AVOID IT or recommend it to your enemies. After trying all Indian restaurant in Seattle area, I found out that Kabab House and Naan & Curry (Renton) are the best ones. Pros: Seattle location Cons: food and service more

The best food and exemplary service in traditional Eastern style! Just mention Jag from London UK!! 6/15/2007

Well, all I can say is this--I have tried many Indian restaurants in the USA, right across from New York to Frisco, but soon as I walked into Chutneys, I just felt so relaxed and ""at home"". They had some kinda Indian song tune playing, but without any vocals, which just gave it that extra air of authenticity. There was a middle aged guy standing by the cash till, whom I assumed to be the owner, and soon as I walked in, he immediately walked towards me with huge smile and welcoming pleasantries. This was followed by a yound lady who took my coat and asked where I wanted to sit. The food I ordered was absolutely superb, with a great range of cold beers to suit. After I had eaten my fill, the lady asked me if I wanted a cup of Indian spice tea, which I agreed to, and that really rounded off an excellent, relaxing evening! On another occasion, after a long walk at the PIke Place Market, I stumbled upon another Indian restaurant called Pabla Cuisine, which I think is at 2nd St near the market. This place was the complete reversal of Chutneys--surly, uninterested Staff, horrible, mass-produced type food. Two weeks later, I was back at Chutneys, sampling their delights again! Oh, and I found out the name of the owner--Mr Gill. Next time you are there, ask for him by name and he will help you choose your dishes and tell you a little about them, too! And mention my name (Jag from London UK) and you will get preferential treatment!\r PS one time I was at Chutneys at lunchtime and the place was packed--so much so, that the waiters had to virtually barricade the door shut to stop any more people coming in!!! That would not happen if the place was lousy!! By the way, this is review is about the place in Lower Queen Anne Street. Pros: Ambience, parking, peace and quiet! Cons: Having to leave! more

spoilt, burnt food 7/23/2006

we ordered chickpea fritters one of their speciality sauces with veggies. the first was great and plentiful but the second dish smelled burnt, plus the veggies were probably defrosted a long time back and were going bad. the service was attentive and the ambience good but we are NOT going back there again. there are many reasonable priced indian-ish restraunts in seattle metro that are better than this. more
