Excellent food!. I love the butter chicken!!! I enjoy it so much, it holds me back from trying anything else. My husband and kids use the garlic bread to sop up every last bit of sauce. It is simply delicious!!
Dosa lover's paradise.
I am love their Dosas. Crunchy, crispy flavorful Dosas with great delicious filling and curry.
My other favorite-eggplant curry with peanut curry sauce.
this place is best rated indian in pdx for a good reason
BEST INDIAN FOOD IN PDX.
I have been visiting Chutneys for almost 2 years since we moved from Texas. The food is hands down the best in PDX. My favorite is Mumtaz Biryani. It is made very authentic with all the Hyderabadi spices and fresh herbs. Yes they do use fresh mint (not basil) in all biryanis. I also love their dosas and garlic naan.
I attended their cooking class several months ago and suggest it for those that want to learn about indian cusine.
It is great value for what you get, plus you know what goes into your favorite dishes.
Worst Dinner- best place to take ex mother in law!.
The owner said she is from South India- after eating there, I felt she may have never seen India . Cook may have taken an Online Indian cooking class. This place will teach you what Indian food SHOULD NOT taste like. Raw Onion and Basil in Biriyani? You got it...
Steamed Cauliflower and carrot in Sambar? U got it...
Raita resembles rice pudding with sweet peas in it- U got it..
Every dish is over loaded with tomato purree...
If she was cooking - Moguls and British would have left India way sooner! Not to mention- they could have solved the over population problem in India by increasing the sucidal rate among fat people!
Oh to top it off- If you ask Chillie or Jalapeno - she goes we don't use chillie.
So my advicve- please take your ex mother in law- Cops will never know what caused her to......
Not bad, Not bad at all. worth it for sure. Great authenticity and even had King Fisher beer. Prompt pleasant service with really tasty lamb and naan. Even the music was authentic to the 10 or so visits I made to India.
Its all there!. We just moved here from Houston, didn't think any of the Portland restaurants would stand up to some of the quality Indian food I am used to. I was wrong, found about Chutneys from Urbanspoon. My iphone shaker said Chutneys so we went. It is almost impossible to find an Indian restaurant that ranks high in quality, ambiance and customer service. I am totally impressed with everything. The waitress was very friendly and the service was great. She came by to make sure that water and soda were topped off. The food was delicious and fresh, the fresh herb (mint and basil) garnishing was exquisite and added great flavor. Mumtaz biryani was the best I have ever had. You have to try their mango pie, if you love mango like I do, you will be in tropical heaven. Now if someone can help me find some sunshine in this town I will be all set.
Best Indian restaurant in pdx. I have been going to Chutneys for about a year now, I used to go to the buffet place on Fourth Plain before Chutneys opened. Chutneys does not have a buffet, they serve platters (and regular menu) at lunch. They serve an assortment of samplers for platters, it usually is 2-3 vegetarian curries, tandoori chicken, dessert, fresh made naan bread and basmati rice. The curries and tandoori chicken are delicious, unlike the typical buffet restaurants that recycle left over items and keep the food in warmers for days. Naan bread is brought fresh to the table and not piled up soggy bread in the food warmer. I am very suspicious about the below posting, most indian restaurants do not sell takeouts of platters. I can't imagine that Chutneys does lunch platter takeouts. Imagine packing all of the small samplers with bread and rice when you have to deal with regular lunch crowd. I am not sure how anyone can keep the small potions of curry samplers warm in takeout containers. Our work group eats at Chutneys at least once a week, we love it!
Overpriced & below average Indian Food place. I did a lunch take out and it was totally a bad experience. The food was bland and had no taste. I have not had worse experience at an Indian food place before this. Not recommended and FYI there are pretty good Indian food places across the river
Tasteless Indian food. The worst Indian food I've ever had. We ordered thali (which was a bad idea). The food was cold and tasteless. I know I can cook better Indian food than that. There are many other better indian restaurants in the portland/vancouver area. I believe they had a Chutney's in Seattle. A good friend of mine went there and I was told that the food sucked. I guess they are a chain in Washington. None of the locations have good food.
Best Indian restaurant in Portland.
The food was so amazing! Light and healthy, perfect portions, exquisite flavor, excellent service and a relaxing atmosphere. What more could you want. This is absolutely my new favorite restaurant.
My favorite: Mumtaz Biryani and Garlic Naan
