Chat house is very dear to us for the last 20 years. Of all the Indian restaurants in Croydon this is probably the oldest and best. Keep it up guys.

The food choices were not so indian in the resturant, we ordered chaat and was really bad in taste and we realised the cook does not know how to make indian snacks :(

First visit and pleasantly surprised. Absolutely nothing to complain about from arrival to leaving. Food was very good and quite a few unknowns on the menu. Excellent. Staff were very attentive and courteous. Will certainly visit again when in the area. Well done.

Love the Biriyani, always good, dependable, but the waiters can be a bit moody, I have been going there for about 3 years now.

I have eaten in most Indian restaurant's in Croydon and don't rate any of them very highly. They are all OK but not great. Always had to travel to other areas of London to get a GREAT Indian meal. Went to the Chathouse as friends...More

Response from AlbertfromCroydon |
Their website states that they offer a free delivery service for orders over £15 but will not deliver orders under £15. They don't mention the distance within which they will deliver
