Why Chutneys is special ?

The vibe at Chutneys is what you'd expect from your usual CMB 5 star. Lots of A/C, shiny surfaces and glass. They've added some fun touches, like an extended theme of jumbled alphabets from the four states on the menus, wall panels, and even the ceiling. There's also an open kitchen which emits loud frying hisses and puffs of aromatic steam now and then, which is quite fun.

It's mostly a family joint, and definitely doesn't seem like a romantic date spot. They do solid vegetarian options too, so it was quite popular on a Poya.

Some must-try dishes:

Nandu rasam: $2

Thengai satham: $2

Soppu palya: $3

Kori garlic thalna: $6

Palkatti green peas kuruma: $3

While it looked like an expensive restaurant. We were very happy to see the food reasonably priced. It just makes more sense when the food tastes good and is priced well too. The kulfi was very good. The menu had more than just south Indian food and dishes were well prepared. Overall a very nice outing with good satisfying food that is easy on the pocket as well.
