A word from Chutney Masala
Culinary School graduate and James Beard honoree Chef Navjot Arora has put together a unique menu borrowing from the vast culinary diversity of India.
We truly believe great food starts with great ingredients. We procure only fresh, wholesome ingredients with no artificial flavorings or additives, local produce wherever possible, all natural poultry, free range lamb, wild not farmed seafood. We grind our own spices to ensure freshness.

The New York Times gave high marks to our succulent tandoori cooked meats and referred to our sauces as superbly complex.” Vegetarians will feel like royalty” says The Journal News, referring to our delicious curries and vegetable appetizers. Our menu reflects Chef Navjot’s true passion for food that began from a very young age. He further honed his skills and learnt from the very best master chefs at the Taj Group of Hotels

The menu offers a variety of combination platters, along with biryanis, curries, tandoori entrees.

Diner Reviews
  • "We sat with old friends for hours and hours, eating one surprisingly good dish after another, each one unique. (This is not one of those Indian places where there are only a few flavors.) It's a special place with good, enthusiastic service. And after dinner you get to go take in the view of the beautiful Hudson River!"

  • "I have been there several times and the food is consistently impressive. However, the service can get a little questionable when it gets busy. Not bad enough to stop me from going but could certainly use some improvement. Overall very positive experience."

  • "Loved this restaurant! Great food and service. Was excited to eat our leftovers the following evening!"

  • "This is the best Indian food I have had other than a friend's mom's cooking. That same friend often sneered at Indian restaurant food citing the "cheap vegetables." Chutney Masala definitely uses "the good vegetables." We got the thali and everything was fresh and vibrant. Greenest saag ever."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "I had been aware of Chutney Masala for sometime, and had looked forward to trying it out. When I did so, I was quite disappointed; the food was so-so, the service inconsistent, and the main dining room décor not up to the scale of the restaurant' exterior or charming bar/entrance area. Some particular issues: our appetizer was served lukewarm at best, and my request to the waiter to tone down the spice-level of my entrée was clearly ignored. I am not spice averse; I love Indian food and eat it often. I doubt I'll be back to Chutney Masala, though."

  • "With menu items beyond the standards of most other Indian restaurants"

  • "The tastes are are a little above your average Indian restaurant. We drive about 35 minutes and find it always worth the trip. Much more tasteful. There is just something a little different here. Very comfortable and eager to please. Please try it."

  • "I tried this restaurant on a whim one Saturday when the place I was planning to go to was closed for the day. Boy was i glad that it worked out the way that it did. I have been here 6 times since the start of this year. I have always been afraid to try Indian food but everything thing here that I have ever eaten has always been delicious! They also have a great variety of interesting mixed drinks. Love Chutney Masala!!!"

  • "It was the first time for my family and I to dine at Chutney Masala; and it met all of my expectations. The ambience is outstanding and great for family celebrations. The food is delicious in particular the salmon, lamb and chicken. The servers were extremely attentive and made excellent suggestions which helped some in my family who had never had Indian food before. I will definitely make reservations again and again."

  • "Great food. Indian food up scaled great service, only complaint is that I wish they would serve a fish besides Tilapia in there curries."

  • "Twice I have dined here and found great service and food, only issue was it was cold, seems the heating is turned on low or not at all, shame as we had to eat with our coats on the second visit. Lucky the food made it all worth it. I cant wait to try it in the summer."

  • "Chef Arora creates a brilliant menu of locally sourced, impeccably chosen ingredients that allow anyone -- vegetarian or carnivore --to tantalize their palate. You can go "traditonal" style (with thali type preparations) or have a more "bistro" style experience (say, wild greens salad, tandoori preparations, and chocolate ganache cake). Everyone will be happy and special requests are happily filled (even a version of very plain chicken tenders for my little girl) This is a comfortable beautifully designed restaurant that suits a romantic date, a large group of friends, a business meal and/or a family meal. Enjoy!"

  • "You know you're in for a great experience when the chef goes out of his way to personally make sure everything is up to par. Chef Arora does just that. I celebrated my birthday here and was greeted warmly at the door. My daughter told me this is how they always treat guests. The wait staff is pleasant and attentive and the food is just as outstanding as the service. You can taste the freshness of every ingredient in every dish; it was all THAT good. My 8 year old grand-daughter recommends the sweet and spicy shrimps in a mango sauce. I recommend everything. It's located in a cozy little space with partial views of the Hudson with interesting images of the Raj on display throughout the establishment. Chutney is definitely a new favorite!"

  • "Unfortunately, not the best Indian we've ever had. The service was very slow. The appetizers were good. The entrees were bland. Desert was generic refrigerated cake. Unfortunately, will not be back."

  • "The food and service are terrific!!!! Our waiter was terrific and gave us great food suggestions! If I have to mention anything that isn't perfect... The restaurant is a bit chilly .. Bring a sweater... And get ready to eat!"

  • "Definitely the best Indian food I've had in Westchester County. Food was flavorful if a little on the spicy side. Service was outstanding as well"

  • "Very helpful staff. Always good service. Not your ordinary Indian restaurant. The food here seems to be a step above the everyday Indian meal. Give it a try."

  • "Wife and I were craving Indian and had heard several good things about this restaurant across the Hudson. I'm forgetting the host's name, but what a wonderful, engaging, knowledgeable gentleman. He knew when to come and chat, and when to leave us to enjoy the amazing food. We started with the potato samosa's and the hara bhara kebab which were delicious. The sauces were full of flavor but not overbearing. We then shared the Murgh tikka makhanwala, the Chicken cettinad, and the saag paneer. All were amazing, but the makhanwala was ridiculous, the tomato cream sauce smooth, spicy, perfect. Cool industrial feel, exposed brick, highly recommend this restaurant for people who love Indian, or first timers!"

  • "The food is always perfectly prepared, and tastes amazing. The service is great, and my wife and I love the ambaince of the interior brick walls and dim lighting. the noise level was extremely low this past Friday, but that was mainly becasue there were not that many diners which was surprising, as I believe this is the best Indian restaurant you will find in the metro NYC area outside of Manhattan. The service has awlays been terrific, the bartender delivered the drinks to our table personally. We even were able to spend a few minutes chatting with the owner as he came to sit down at our table after dinner. One of our favorite restaurants to go to!"

  • "Great place, delicious food, nice atmosphere right on the river....so what was the problem? The wine list led me to lose all credibility in the place. Several cheap wines offered that could only make you believe the owner is cheap and trying to pull one over on you. How can any respectable restaurant sell Tisdale Chardonnay for $30 and $8 a glass? How can a restaurant even sell Tisdale at all?? I found that very offensive. That wine is $2.99 a bottle and I don't even buy it for my guests at home or myself. There were a few other $5-$6 bottles listed, which wouldn't be so bad if they were offered as low cost $5 glasses. Just make sure you don't order any wines until they get a real wine consultant in there to help!"
