The food is fantastic and the staff provide excellent customer service. It is always packed and would highly recomend booking a reservation to avoid dissappointment. They also provide a great take away service.

We had been busy through the day and early evening and were looking for somewhere to eat quite late (after 9.00pm.) Someone relatively local recommended Chutneys as being open late. When we arrived (without a booking) the place was quite busy but the staff were very helpful and sorted us out very quickly (we were a party of 9). The... More

We had a gorgeous meal here on a busy Friday night. Everything, food wise, was absolutely perfect from popadums and chutneys, main dishes, nan and vegetables. However we unfortunately found ourselves on one of the tiny tables which is not big enough to cope with a meal for two. Apart from the lack of table top space there is a... More

Have eaten many currys over the years but my Lamb Lababdhar was one of the best, if not the best, I've ever had. Plus friendly and efficient service.

Been three or four times before and have never been disappointed. Had the Rajasthani style grilled beef and it was excellent. Will definitely return

We decided to visit Chutneys again after not doing so for a couple of years because of poor service on previous visits. The food was good and the service was also good but we found the whole place lacking atmosphere. Can't say why. We would recommend.

We were very lucky to get, you really must book the place is rammed. The food was exceptional and such a variety. We were near the bar so it was quite noisy which is why a four star not five as it was a tad loud. That said they must have a massive kitchen because bags and bags of take... More

Really enjoyed a meal here on a miserable evening. Mix starter was excellent and we loved the aubergine side dish. Well recommended.

We were recommended to Chutneys when we moved to Blandford last year from Surrey. It was well worth a visit,and we have returned several times,and never been disappointed the main meals are presented and cooked well,the Rice is always light and fluffy,not a congealed mess,and the Bhagis are amongst the beat we have tasted.
