Does not seem yo have the 'panache'of the old Chutney Mary, but food on a par and the service was certainly very good.

Enjoyable meal and service, quite pricey but a tasty thali meal. Will say both of us had very bad stomach aches that night and following morning and neither of us had anything particularly spicy. Seating of the tables are far too close together.

Masala Grill was definitely a lovely restaurant with very good service from the staff who were very attentive throughout and with a sense of humour. The decor is lovely, for a restaurant which is not too pricey. I would recommend this restaurants and would go back to visit myself.

I love Indian food and have not only tried lots places in London (where we are very lucky to have loads of options) but also stuffed myself silly with some of the best Indian food in India itself many times. This place used to be home to the old Chutney Mary, now in Mayfair, and that is when I first came to this place. After the rebranding (and I understand under the same management), I was pleased that the incredible high quality of the food and service were unchanged.
The food is flawless marvellous rich yummy delicious, pretty much everything in the menu. Indian food always got lots of chicken based curries and tandooris. In this place, the chicken is always juicy. Nothing ruins a meal for me more than dry chicken - but here every chicken dish I had was always super juicy. Service is very attentive, a bit too formal at times. Ambiance is super nice, actually perfect for dates, especial occasions, celebrations, bringing foreign guests etc. So all this comes at a price because this is not the cheapest Indian, as one is paying for really great food, service and ambiance... which is very annoying for me as I live nearby and wish it was more casual and cheaper. Anyway, we can not help but go back when we want to sure to have excellent Indian. I had many dinners there with friends, son and also partner. I tried today for the first time the Sunday buffet lunch for £26 pp. Although I typically hate buffets, everything was freshly cooked, with good variety and the nan came to the table hot and fresh too. Again it is never that cheap but I always come out thinking it was totally worth it. I highly recommend it.

We always loved the old Chutney Mary and Masala Grill has fitted into its space perfectly with a smaller, more refined menu but still with some of the old favourites. Always a delicious meal and super evening.

The Masala Grille has sustainable and steady quality. This was a 2nd visit for one in our group of 2 and the memories of the staircase leading to the dining area immediately sparked a pleasant and friendly feeling. The food was wonderfully creative and served with aplomb. Ambience scores a solid "10" and the food doesn't miss the mark anywhere. Great for a date night or for a smaller group, the Masala Grille provides a memorable dinner experience.

We had some guests over, so we decided to go to Masala Grill as it is such a unique experience and the food is always really tasty. We enjoyed all of our dishes from the Chicken and lamb starters to the Prawn Malabar and slow cooked lamb for mains. The staff here are very friendly and are quite good at leaving you to it. All in all a great night with fabulous food.

We loved every thing about Chutney Mary so visited here to see if it has the same offering.
The staff are extremely professional and courteous, the setting and ambience is still as it always was.
However, the two persons tables are now not around the side of the conservatory but arranged so one person is facing a wall. We are not so comfortable with this arrangement.
The food and menu are still adequate but we will take the extra journey to renew our old acquaintance in their new home and let you know how that fayres.
We recommend this Indian restaurant in Chelsea to others.

Our second visit in the space of 4 or 5 weeks, and it was just as pleasant as the first time. This time we came on a busy Saturday evening, which presumably was the cause of the service being a little slower. Thankfully we were not rushed and pushed to return our table by a certain time so it suited us. The food however was very good again (with 4 people this time we were able to try even more dishes) and our waitress Sapna was delightful and efficient. I recommend the virgin mojito.

My wife and I were always fans of Chutney Mary so were pleased to see that, although the restaurant has changed name, it has preserved many of its best features. In particular the ambience is as good as ever and the service exceptional. The food was delicious and we will certainly return.

We had a lovely meal at the Masala Grill. Understand it is the same owners as Chutney Mary which used to be located here but has apparently moved to the City. We choose it for the good reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, original, very fresh and portions were generous without being too large. Service was prompt and friendly. The main dining room is beautifully decorated and there is a private dining room too. Highly suitable for family occasions as well as business dinners. Would love to go back any day.

We had a lovely dinner at Masala Grill for a group of friends. The dishes were very tasty and portions were of an appropriate size. The restaurant is very well decorated and the ambience is nice. There weren't many people in the restaurant at the time of our booking which made it feel quite sparse but believe this wouldn't be the case at more populated times.

The special deal menu was very good and the service was very attentive. The only drawback is that the restaurant is in a very new building and is enormous, so until there are enough people in there it is lacking in atmosphere. Also, its a long way down the Kings Road, so unless you live in that part of London, its a bit of a trek.

The transition from Chutney Mary to Masala Grill has not, for me, worked. The dining area downstairs now seems even darker and gloomier than before, due to a massive dark wood partition running the full depth of the main restaurant. The decor is even more '70's than before.

The new menu is a lot more restricted that Chutney Mary's , according to my recollection, and it made it even harder to find non-spicy dishes for my teenage daughter. Although I stayed clear of all the curries, I still ended up with some very very highly spiced kebabs etc., which we did not enjoy.

Inevitably, the prices are about the same as before, meaning that, for me, there is less value on offer.

Attentive staff,relaxed friendly atmosphere make dining here a pleasure. But the food is the star of the show, beautifully cooked with subtle use of spices and well presented with generous portions.
There are lovely private dining rooms for special occasions and parking is quite easy and free after 1830 in nearby streets.

We were previously big fans of the Chutney Mary, which Masala Grill replaces. They managed to keep at very high quality. Same great ambience and service. Although I find it to be a bit on the pricey side. Still worth our monthly or bi-weekly visit, we are definitely frequent flyers in this restaurant.
