Chilli Chutney, WaterlooPosted in Where to Eat & Drink Now
After extensive travel throughout India the last place I thought I'd end up is Streatham! However, Chilli Chutney is certainly worth the trip.
The restaurant is modern and able to cater for groups, couples and individuals. The service was impeccable and it’s quite clear that this place is popular with the local residents. I can imagine it can get as busy and bustling as the restaurants I visited in Bangalore, Bombay and Delhi.
The food is exceptional, but before you delve into the fodder get yourself a drink and enjoy the atmosphere, try the Mango Lassi: a sweet yogurt drink or one of the many Indian lagers that are a great accompaniment to a curry. The Shami Kebab comes highly recommend as a starter, alternatively the Panner is a good choice for the vegetarian, which is deep fried cheese.

All dishes on the menu are made fresh each day and can be cooked to taste so you don’t have to fret about your meal being too spicy; but beware if you order your meal hot as the chefs here are not shy in the chilli department. All dishes are accompanied by naan breads, the house speciality, baked traditionally in the Tandoor and served piping hot.

If you still have room and fancy a traditional Indian dessert to finish things off then try the Gajar Halwa, which is a combination of finely grated carrots and condensed milk, it’s absolutely delicious!
Top Tip: If you can’t get down to Streatham make sure you check out Chilli Chutney Express in Waterloo and Allders of Croydon.
