We sat outside which was nice, but The plastic lawn chairs are very uncomfortable. Seems cheap for the price of the food and level of dining.

Chutneys is great food & location - it's currently being updated so looks messy right now.

Would be good to know when they will finish the updating work - will return once its finished.

The food at Chutney's is perfectly flavored; both rich and interesting without too much heat. Murg Bahar is my favorite dish, but the Tandori Lamb here is outstanding. Truthfully, I haven't tried anything that wasn't excellent. The atmosphere isn't the standard Seattle "industrial" look. Finished ceilings, wood decor and tasteful art choices lend a relaxed chic vibe. The staff is friendly and helpful with suggestions.

We love this place! Live close by and it is always a good experience, which keeps bringing us back. We took my mom there for dinner and had a great experience and she was also really impressed. Owner is super friendly and welcoming, as are all of the staff. Good attention to detail and great service. Food is really delicious and they will actually make it spicy if requested. Here, a "5" means a "5." Great somosas, naan, and lamb dishes. Nice atmosphere, good wine, and good prices. One of our favorites in downtown Bellevue because the whole experience is always positive.

We eat at Chutney's in Bellevue fairly often for both lunch and dinner. We always find the food to be very good and well prepared with exceptional flavors. Our personal preference is the dinner menu vs the lunch buffet, which is very good and less expensive. Service is always first class and it is never very noise. We take friends.

We were sat promptly and offered excellent suggestions when asked.

Food was delicious but too Spicy. We asked for medium and it was definitely well above medium. Both of us can handle some heat but this was definitely on the spicier side. The server did bring raita free of charge to help when asked.

The food was simply delicious and we would definitely go back.

Totally on a side note, the restrooms needed attention . I realize this is a restaurant but it totally is a turn off when I go to any dining establishment and the toilet paper roll is not only empty by the dispenser is left gaping open and there is no towels or means with which to dry my hands after washing them.

That said, the food and service were good!

I've been going to Chutney's for special occasions for over 5 years now. I go for lunch because of the marvelous buffet. I've introduced many friends and relatives to Indian cuisine by taking them to Chutney's. All have been pleased with the food and ambiance. Highly recommend for the buffet lunch!

While I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times and enjoyed it consistently, I am unable to praise it on this visit in any way. The reason for this is that my reservation was accepted in Open Table and confirmed, but when we arrived at the restaurant we found it to be closed for a private party event!

We were offered an anemic apology and nothing in the way of consolation for the fact that we had booked a reservation.

Not sure I will ever go back again.

It was delicious as always. I had reserved a table, and put that it was for a birthday, but there was nothing special added or suggested for the birthday person when we were there, which was fine, but I half expected there to be some birthday option.

When in the mood for Indian, we always go to Chutney's. The food is authentic and made from scratch. You can tell from the taste. There is no comparison to any Indian restaurant on the Eastside in my opinion.

We wanted a place for the 12 of us for Mother's Day dinner and it needed to be quiet enough for my 84 year old mother to hear. Our host (i believe he's also the owner) could not have been more gracious and welcoming-he made my mother feel like a queen. The rest of the staff was awesome as well and our entire party had a wonderful time. Oh, and the food was also outstanding!

We went during lunch time and it seems to be a popular option for business lunches. The restaurant was pretty full but we were still able to be sat rather quickly. We both chose to do the lunch buffet and it really is a great deal. My friend is vegetarian and she loves the options that were offered. I personally really enjoyed the meatball curry, farmers cheese with bell peppers, and the rice pudding. The tandoori chicken had a great presentation but the meat was awfully dry.

Celebrating birthday and Valentine's Day. Reservation for six people. Chose restaurant due to past experiences at the Queen Anne location. As always the food was excellent. However, the service was subpar. Not enough staff to serve the customers and not enough kitchen staff to prepare the food. Even though it was Valentine's Day, management should have been prepared. Lack of attention to guests beverages was noticeable and I had to go staff person inquiring the whereabouts of one entrée. Really disappointed with the service.

As always, Chutney's was very good. We arrived early and were seated in. The corner window where we could watch people on the street. We each had a coconut curry. One Lamb and the other chicken. Both were very good and enough was leftover for lunch the next day. The nann is usually good, but this trip it was dry and crisp.

Delicious! Every dish we ordered was marvelous with the opportunity to adjust the heat to just the way you like it. Together with fresh naan...mmmmmm! We had vegetable samosas and curried mussels for appetizers; chicken tikka Marsala, seafood biryani, lamb vindaloo, vegetable korma, daal makhani, creamed spinach w cheese for dinner; and finished with rose, vanilla and coconut ice cream. This is my favorite place for Indian cuisine in the PNW! And...the best service too. You can't go wrong here. Enjoy!!!
