Inattentive services beginning at entrance. Host was unaware of reservations. Lentil soups were taken away full. A bowl of salty tasteless liquid and a sheen of oil spread across the top. No acknowledgement as if they were aware of its misrepresentation of a soup. We still paid full price for both. When we requested no rice the server disregarded and brought in anyways. We asked for an alternative and he informed us that he forgot and said we had to pay for anything else. He made us feel as if we were being a bother. An uncomfortable experience and an unsatisfactory meal. We will not return.
Food is good and ambience is pleasant. Overall it is good. One of the best indian restaurant in Seattle.
The food was amazing. We made a reservation for 7:30PM on New Years Eve and when we arrived were told they would be closing in 30 minutes. We felt bad for coming so close to closing, but if they didn't want people coming in so close to closing probably should not have let us make a reservation so late. We felt rushed the whole time we were there, on the positive side our food came out very quickly and service was prompt.
Being the only guest @ L was somewhat awkward. The food was as good as I recall it during my years in India!
Great Indian food, great service, and gave us plenty of recommendations!
A neighborhood gem. came here for the concert with my date. The place was busy and bustling. Service was top notch. Food was flavorful. Being an indian i was picky about the food but chutneys met my bar. Never heard of a lobster dish in an indian restaurant and this place served it. The dish was the best of all. Will surely visit again.
There was a mix up in our reservation but they went the 'extra mile' to get us in. Thanks!
Chutney's was great as always. The vegetable samosas were nicely spiced with tender, flaky crust. The lobster masala was filled with succulent pieces of well-cooked lobster in a rich sauce and the chicken sagwaala was lots of chicken in a wonderful green sauce of pureed broccoli, cilantro and mint perhaps. I forget the ingredients, but not the flavor. We were there early before a show, so I don't know what the noise level is later in the night, but it was quiet and very comfortable when we were there.
Chutney's has been around a long time. I suspect they survive due to their tasty, authentic Indian food. We have eaten here a couple of times over the past year and always find the food good. That is it. The place is in serious need of rehabilitation: The walls need painting, booth and tables need refurbishing, and, in general, the place needs an overhaul. It looks and feels tired. The staff is not trained. This time when we entered the man standing by the sign telling us to wait to be seated was so morose we weren't sure what we had done wrong. Skipping many details let me say, he was unfriendly, unhelpful and after he disappeared we were grateful. We love their rack of lamb. It is flavorful and generous. It doesn't matter if you order it rare or medium rare it will be served well done. Still, it is tasty and a nice dish with properly cooked vegetables. The bar has no olives for the martini's, no limes for the gin and tonics. Naan is delicious as are all the dishes we have ordered. When attending an event at the Seattle Center this is a good spot as it is close and there is always a table.
We have been going to Chutneys in Wallingford for many years. We had tickets to the Rep so decided to try the Queen Anne location. First off, they have many orders for take out which is why it took a long time to get served our dinner. Second, the chicken in the Tiki Masala was over cooked and chewey. Third, the Salmon was delicious. Fourth, our drink order was wrong as was the dinner. So maybe try some other things and make your own decision.
