With an authentic flair for Asian delicacies, Chutney Indian Restaurant and Spice Market delivers Indian, Pakistani and vegan foodstuffs at affordable rates. The name Chutney refers to a flavorful South Asian condiment made of bold spices and vegetables.
While patrons can count on quality chutney, the condiment is nearly a side-attraction to the rich flavors of dishes like the Idli-Vala dish which includes a steamed rice muffin and fried lentil donuts served with sambar, which comes with soft naan bread baked in a clay oven.
Eating in house will require anywhere from $6-12, but a stop into Spice Market may tally up your tab. Spice Market offers a wide selection of dried foods, loose spices, and other Indian staples to bring the flavors of Asia home.
