CHUTNEY'S - Harvard Sq - Quick service Indian is now open ( old Flat Patty's location) YUMMY!!

Opened today.

I've had quick service Indian in New York but this is the first place I've seen in the Boston area.

Stopped by at 6 tonight and had an Aloo Masala Roll and a Tofu and Mushroom Paneer.
Friendly service and friendly prices.
The mango lassi drink was super creamy
They have vegetarian options - chicken - lamb and much more.

I'll be back

  1. Good to know.

    Re quick service indian there used to be two (unrelated to each other) places in the food courts of the "corner mall" at downtown crossing, and in the Pru food court. both were, okay.

    Looking forward to trying Chutney's.

      Another OK one is Gourmet India in the food court of Burlington Mall.
      It is certainly better than most of the other food court options, which is all it needs to be in that location.

      1. re: peregrine

        go to gourmet india on the weekend for the specials. there is also one in the food court at the square one mall in saugus

        1. re: galangatron

          call me crazy but where would anyone want to be on a great summer weekend?
          The Burlington Mall the Square one Mall or Harvard Square?

          Harvard Square is the correct answer

          Happy 4th to all

        2. That's nice, hopefully the rice is good, which is always the problem with Indian fast food.

          Gourmet Inda is pretty good, the weekend dosas look great, haven't tried. Mango pickles are complementary there I believe upon request, when I've asked in the Pru, Burlington and Natick locations.

            Weekend dosas at the Pru-foodcourt-place were very good, as of a few years ago (the last time I was there). A very pleasant surprise for me.

          2. Does anyone know the hours? I have a feeling it won't be open as late as I hope. Can someone can prove me wrong?

              I tried going there on July 4th, but they were closed at 11:45p.

                They boast of their midnight closing time most nights:

                I went today and it was very good. I had the chili chicken in naan. Lots of fresh veggies and nice spicy chutney. A very inexpensive lunch and one was just enough for me for lunch.

              2. The menu looks nice, except that I am not quite sure what to make of the steak and cheese stir fry...

                  I thought that was bizarre too. I assume it's cooked on the same grill surface?

                  1. re: Prav

                    Something was taped over on the menu when I was there on Friday -- perhaps it was that!

                    1. re: chickendhansak

                      steak & cheese is off the menu
                      beef on an Indian menu is a oxymoron..yes?
                      Big lunch croud today. Just wait until the students are back in town

                      1. re: sysco kid

                        Not necessarily an oxymoron, with 160 million (non beef-avoiding) Muslims in India... just unusual to see in non-Halal Indian restaurants.

                2. I just went there for a quick lunch bite and really enjoyed it! Very reasonable prices (5.00 for a perfectly lunch sized roll/sandwich), and is nice new addition to my Harvard Sq lunch rotation. I thought the bread (masala roti) was particularly yummy.
