Harden's says

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.

Summary

“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.

Summary

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”).

Summary

“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.

Summary

Moved this year from its long-standing Chelsea home to a “wonderfully decorated” new site in St James’s, this renowned Indian seems to have transported well – the new location is “lovely”, as is the “superb, fragrant and subtle” cooking, and all-in-all it’s “expensive but worth it”.

"Buzzy, glitzy higher-end Indian. Delightful food, cracking wine list. Service was a bit hit and miss, but would look forward to going back."
