Finally a post that isn’t about Japanese food!!
I started looking forward to Chutney Mary since my friend mentioned that it was his parents favourite restaurant in London. Though I’m more of an oriental food kind of person, Chutney Mary was a good change.
The first thing I notice about a restaurant is the service – if the service is bad, theres a good chance that I won’t enjoy the food. Chutney Mary has a very welcoming atmosphere that is still quite casual – perfect for a lunch date. The service was so good, the waiters/waitresses were very professional and friendly without seeming fake (I find it very awkward when they’re fake-nice). The food also didn’t take too long, I was grateful for this as I hate waiting for food!
I wanted to have a good idea about the quality of food they served so we ordered a bit more than our appetites could handle.The mains were quite average but the starters were great, here is a break down…
- Crispy boneless chicken wings – They came as cubes with strawberry sauce as a topping – this was a combination that I had never tried before but it was great, would’ve ordered for seconds if I only I had a bigger appetite
- Fried Calamari – everyones go-to starter, it had a bit of an indian twist with a tough of curry, we all liked it
- Golden Fried Prawns – Amazing presentation
- Salmon Biryani – Relatively average but I love salmon so it was still worth ordering
- Bijapur Lamb Curry
- Spelt Naan
- Raj Aloo (crispy potatoes)
- Yoghurt and Honeycomb ice-cream
- Gulab Jamun with vanilla ice-cream
- Garam Masala Brûlée
