Loved the food, very good service. Complimentary tea, very good as well. The naan was enourmous. Generous portions. Mango lassi very nice.

Visited Chutney after a few years, the place has been updated and the seating area is definitely more attractive. Ordered for take-out - food was delicious and at great prices.
