A book shouldn't be judged by it's cover, just like this restaurant shouldn't be underestimated for its low key diner type ambience and bordering tacky decor. This place is for serious food lovers who crave spice and flavor. Be it the well cooked lentils or kababs, this place is worth being bookmarked and revisited over and over again. Wash it... More

We are Indian food fanatics and eat it whenever we can and I cook pretty good Indian food as well. But honestly I have been visiting chutney since they first opened many years ago and each time I travel to San Francisco, it is a MUST visit for me. And should be for anyone looking for the best Indian food... More

Tasty Indian fare in the downtown. Plenty of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes at affordable prices. Mutton biriyani and chicken tikka masala are must tries. There is a free flow of masala tea for the restaurant guests, it is kept at the back side of the restaurant

Was hungover and this place definitely satisfied the way I was feeling. Naan was good, chicken tikka masala was tender and the sauce so yummy. Only thing was the lamb boti was a bit chewy. Did have nice flavours though. Good portion size and good price.

Visited Chutney after a few years, the place has been updated and the seating area is definitely more attractive. Ordered for take-out - food was delicious and at great prices.

Cheap, and very good. Would've paid more for a lot less elsewhere. Was quite busy and noisy, but that's a testament to the value offered. They don't serve alcohol but there are various minimarts nearby where you can purchase and consume at Chuntey.

I visited Chutney 7 years ago to the month and ended up eating here a few times. I must say that the food was still good on this trip and I would still recommend it. I've definitely had better, but the chicken tikka masala is great. Good blend of spices and medium heat. A little too much tomato flavour in... More
