    My partner and I were on business in Seattle and decided for some Indian food while in Bellevue. Found Chutneys. This is place is so unique and what stood out most of all, was the service and quality of food. The owner himself kept checking on us and seeing that were happy with menu and food. The food was excellent, and the once again, the service was outstanding. I highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Seattle / Bellevue. Highest stars and cudos for great service and food.

    If you are looking for a nice, white table cloth, indian restauran, then Chutneys is a great choice. Food is excellent and employees are pleasant. They make the extra effort to be sure you feel comfortable and are taken care of.

    There are several good Indian restaurants in the Bellevue/Redmond area (Mayuri and Moksha for two) but this isn't one of them. The place was quiet, only a few other diners, yet still the service was slow and inattentive. The food was lukewarm and just not very flavorful. One of our party ordered the mango chicken - you had to strain the thin soup like sauce to find the occasional tiny piece of chicken. I should have paid more attention to the other reviews. This place is just not worth it.

    The waitress seemed new and not very knowledgable about wine list or the menu. She was slow, possibly a result of her lack of training. Too many items came to the table indifferently, the soup was late arriving and interfered with the already presented entrees. The Indian fare is authentic and cooked well, the prices though are high.

    The service was a bit slow, even though there were only a few tables filled. One waiter was doing it all until later, when more waiters arrived. The restaurant is attractive and romantically lit, not dark. The food is good, but could be spicier. I asked for mine to be just below medium. It was not spicy at all. I really enjoyed mine and ordered a dessert to go.

    A few girls and I met for my birthday here for lunch. They were training a new gal, but the owner was there to step in and assist. Which would have been fine, but he was painfully awkward with us. The place was not busy at all, and one of my girlfriends was about 30 minutes late, they kept coming by urging us to order, and we politely repeated about 3 times that we were still waiting for someone. Once said late gall arrived, the owner interrupted immediately jumped in, interupting us multiple times, telling us to order, which I realize you need to order food/drinks at a restaurant, but just give us a minute to catch up, goodness... especially being as slow as it was. Anyway, lunch service was ok - maybe dinner time would be better.

    This place has the best Indian food in Bellevue! The food is absolutely amazing! I wish I could give the names of the delicious items my boyfriend and I have enjoyed (now on a few occasions). The times that we have gone, we have asked the manager "What would you suggest?" My advice...go with whatever he suggests! You can’t go wrong, it was outstanding! Unfortunately the downside, as I have seen with every Indian restaurant, is that your clothing tends to hold the smells of curry and garlic even after leaving. But the food is worth it! I plan on going back very soon!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/22/2012
    The owner suggested we go with a set menu, since we had a such a large group (16 people), so we agreed. We had two types of appetizers, five entrees, and two types of naan. The appetizers were very good, though the chutney was a bit boring. The naan was pretty average; not bad, but not excellent. The chicken tikka masala was amazingly good, and the saag paneer actually tasted like saag paneer and not just salty creamed spinach, which seems to be the case at most places. The other entrees were unremarkable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/14/2012
    The server (an older gentleman) was really quite rude or at least very indifferent to the point of being grumpy. He didn't explain that meals came with a Nan bread so we ordered more then we needed to and when we asked him to explain the flabvour profile of a dish he just dismissed us. I am a curry fan and understand the 1-5 rating system for heat whilst one of my guests was new to the restaurant, he was just impatient as she decided how hot she wanted her food. What was most odd was that lunchtime diners were eating from the buffet we instead ate from the menu and therefore spent a lot more money. I have been before in the evenings and enjoyed the place after this experience I will think twice before going back.

I would recommend going when it is not busy as the noise is a lot less and the staff will spend more time with your table.

    We ordered mussels and there was hardly any meat in it, the sauce in it was ok, my pomegranate chicken curry was not that fresh, the chicken was old.I had left overs to take home and they threw are it out. They told me it'd take only a minute to make me another, which is admitting that they are using old ingredients to make it. I wouldn't recommend this place to any one. How its one of the restaurants to go to in Seattle, doesn't know Indian food.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/31/2011
    The flavors were excellent. We had four distinctly different dishes, with two appetizers. The mussels were over cooked, the menu raved about the sauce for dipping, the problem was the sauce was excellent, the naan maybe the smallest in Puget Sound, and the mussels were simply overdone. Personally I had a prawn madras dish which had a lot of flavor, a lot of onions and four medium shrimp. My daughter had the mixed grill which was excellent and had a tremendous amount of food, all of which she described as very good or better. She is a fan of Indian and Pakistani food so she has a good knowledge base. Overall, a very nice restuarant, great flavors, but I left hungry. There are many other Indian restuarants I prefer.

    SeattlefoodchaserVIP
    Dined on 4/22/2011
    I have been to Chutney's once before and noticed a common theme, the food tends to be over cooked and dry, and the dishes don't always have every component. The service was nice and fairly prompt, but didn't do anything "extra" like fill the water glasses when we ran out, or offer to bring another round of drinks. I had the Cocunut lamb delight, which was very dry and missing the golden raisins that I was looking forward to, and the Black pepper vodka martini was missing the olives it was listed to contain on the menu, it was a very different drink this way. My date ordered the seafood delight, and all of the pieces of seafood were very much over cooked. The vegetable samosas definitely were the highlight of the meal.
