The experience was superb Truly a memorable meal. The lunch there was very reasonable for the best Indian food of my life. Staff was mostly warm and inviting - those that were not were efficient but not to the point of seeming standoffish

Each visit to London will involve a stop at this enjoyable establishment - the bar area appeared inviting

Outstanding creative Indian haute cuisine. Flavourful, spicy but not hot with original ingredients.
Upscale interior ambience. Memorable lunch experience.

Great location. Marvellous ambience, especially the Saturday lunch jazz, and amazing value for central London. The quality of ingredients and subtle spices are delicious. Staff are also exceptionally courteous and friendly.

This restaurant is one of my favourites in London. The food is always exceptional as is the service. I was with friends who I haven't seen for a while and I am sure we outstayed our welcome because before we knew it the lunch had turned almost into dinner and the staff were very gracious and left us chatting while they set up the dinner service.

This was possibly the most exceptional Indian meal I've ever had. I cannot fault it.....and it gave all three diners the wow factor which these days is rare. Going back as soon as the bank account allows.

Chutney Mary's has become one of our favorite restaurant, overall, and our favorite Indian restaurant. It's location on St. James is much more convenient that its former location. It is an elegant space, that matches the quality of its food!

You cannot go wrong with any of the dishes. For those with gluten sensitivity, they actually have a gluten-free naan!!

We make it a point to eat here every trip to London, and actually prefer it to her sister restaurant, Veeraswamy.
Reservations are usually a must.

Nice place. The food is excellent and the decor is smart. A little lifeless.
The food is tasty and well spiced. The service is good if a little relaxed. Prices are fair.
Tough one. I really like it but there is not much atmosphere. Not sure that the office dwellers see much attraction in lunchtime Indian food.

I miss the beautiful gardenatmosphere from the old location but the newer spot is business elegant and very comfortable. Lots of vegetarian options and informed wait staff who helped us greatly about dishes without garlic on behalf of someone in our party that is allergic. Will definitely return.

Our fifth visit to Chutney Mary demonstrated the quality and creativity of the food has remained consistently high...the shredded crab, scallop and cucumber soup starters were all exceptional. Entrees of lamb shank and Goa green chile chicken were delicious and flavorful. Service is attentive, friendly and helpful...and a wonderful cocktail menu and wine list make this a favorite stop in London. Arrived just after 21:00 on a Thursday and the place was packed! Noise levels were a bit high, but it diminished with the crowd.

Chutney Mary is one of our new obsessions. The tikka paneer and lamb chops are to die for, the cocktails sit grand in their mightily stemmed glasses whilst elegantly replenishing the pallet for the next mouthful of Devine Indian modern cuisine. What else would we expect from those two also brought us Amaya (go to both!!!)

One entree was so bad they removed it from our bill. It was the prawns. Which were over cooked and tough.
The green curry/chili chicken was not that great either. We were more or less led through the menu by the staff which insisted on the entrees.
Would never eat there again. Another table had quality issues also as the manager was dealing with them and their complaints.

Outstanding. Creative, balanced and very well done. The food was excellent, the decor as well. My only complaint is that the deserts (and we tried most of them) were inconsistent (some very good, some ok). Appetizers: duck salad, scallops and crab cakes were all outstanding. Enter: the grilled sea bass was excellent, as were the side orders of okra, breads etc. dessert (cherry srikhand) was very very good.

Really loved the breakfast, so different than all other venues, but sadly very quiet, so I fear they have stopped serving breakfasts now.

The food was delicious and well spiced.
The restaurant is stunning but a bit noisy at least for my hearing.
Not sure how often I will use it though as a lunchtime curry is not a frequent event.
