After 25 years in Chelsea, veteran Indian Chutney Mary moved to St James's in 2015; the restaurant boats private dining as well as a separate bar, Pukka Bar.

“Still very much an institution, even though it moved from its original SW10 location”: this “buzzy, glitzy high-end Indian” – nowadays in St James’s – delivers a formidable, all-round formula of “delightful” nouvelle Indian cuisine: “the variety and quality of the menu is truly impressive”, backed up by “a well-matched list of wines and whiskies”. Top Top – “sitting in the bar area is more fun than the main restaurant”.

“Top-of-the-range, expensive but memorable… nice cocktails too!”; this “beautiful and intimate” stalwart is very well-established now in its swanky St James’s location, and “better all-round than when it was located in Chelsea”. “A great variety of spices are used very subtly and with first class ingredients” to create some “divine” dishes.

In its “lavish and beautifully decorated” St James’s home for over two years now, this “very glam” relocated stalwart (which for over two decades was on the fringe of Chelsea) remains one of London’s foremost ‘posh’ Indians, serving “brilliantly spiced” contemporary cuisine, plus “fantastic cocktails” (“the Pukka bar is great for a clandestine drink”).

“I needn’t have been apprehensive about the move from the King’s Road!” – this re-located Indian stalwart (in its new “grown-up” St James’s premises for over a year now) continues to delight its large fanclub with its “exceptional, deeply flavoured and superbly textured” cuisine.
