Description: With such a wide range of offerings in Brentwood, finding an Indian restaurant that has just the right mix of atmosphere and hospitality, along with authentic taste and quality spices and ingredients, is not as easy as one might expect. We hope that once you arrive at Chutney Joe, you will feel it was well worth the journey Initially this restaurant was designed by Blink Interiors of London in 2005 to give a very stylish and contemporary feel in the dining area and a fusion of old, modern and sophisticated with ethnic & cultural hints throughout. With our wealth of experience, you can be sure that Chutney Joe will be a firm favourite for those who enjoy exceptional cuisine for many years to come. Our events team have successfully entertained many top corporate events, for companies such as Deutsche Bank, Channel Four, Metro, The Guardian, The Body Shop, The Rookery Hotel EC1 etc. We have also hosted many 'A' List celebrity parties. We have many years of experience in providing catering to standards of excellence. We believe you will enjoy what we have to offer in this area, as well as our food. Our cuisine is a combination of subtle tastes, fragrant and exotic spices imported from India and are delicately blended to create the original distinctive flavour and aroma.

“Not to be visited AGAIN!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

I don't normally mank about food, but having travelled to many parts of the world tasting curries from the majority of them, I have to say this has got to be one of the worst, my wife's Korma tasted of chicken being warmed up in condensed milk and my Vinders was more of a tinned mild curry, to really take the micky, I found an extra £3.50 on my bill, asked what it was for and was told it was for a dessert, which I never had, this was later removed, yep this will be my last visit there, "restaurant's like this give us Indians a bad name!!!

“Great Indian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Went here with 15 work colleagues for lunch & the staff were very well prepared. Pre ordered the food before hand which made the whole dining experience much more pleasurable, sat down with drinks and food began to arrive within 15 minutes. All fresh out of the oven and enjoyed by all.

We will be returning to see how the evening sitting compares.

“Really Good Traditional Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

Have eaten here now quite a few times. It is a very busy restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff are all very efficent and friendly without being in your face. The menu selection is good and the portions are of a good size. Food quality is high and the prices are fair. It certainly has become a regular for us and worth the twenty minute drive to get there.

“Lost our custom”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

Have been to this restaurant a few times but the most recent visit will be the last. We were seated on the top floor and had just received our starters when we were made to move to allow a larger party (who hadn't pre-booked) to be seated. We won't be going again !
