A smart Indian restaurant with a modern relaxed feel. It once described itself as 'the world's first Anglo-Indian restaurant' - but others have followed. It has moved lock, stock & barrel from its original premises on The King's Road, Chelsea to Mayfair.
Expect to find the likes of 'Stir-fried Squid with Kerala Spices'; ' Goan-style Stuffed Crab' or 'Crispy Salmon Samosas' and 'Panfried Lamb Kebab' among the starters.
Perhaps 'Roast Duck with Black Pepper Sauce' from Kerala; 'Chicken Breast braised with red chilis, almonds, raisins and spices' 'Lobster Makhani (in a tomato and brandy sauce) among the mains. There's also plenty from the tandoor, and good vegetarian options.
If you have room, finish with a 'Cinnamon-flavoured Chocolate Fondant with an Orange Blossom Lassi ' (yoghurt drink), or 'Ginger Bread and Butter Pudding with a Cardamom Sorbet'.
The name Chutney Mary was used by conservative Indians to describe an Indian woman who adopted English clothes and manners.
