Chutney Bar & Matsal


Chutney is one of Stockholm’s oldest vegetarian cafe, situated in the heart of Södermalm. Vegetarian or vegan casseroles and patties inspired from all around the world signatures the menu at Chutney with an oriental hippie like atmosphere.

The review is based on Chutney’s lunch (110 SEK) which they serve between 11.00-17.00 Monday to Friday. Today’s vegetarian lunch menu always offer two vegan dishes or more.

DISHES WE ORDERED from today’s lunch- 110 SEK

  • Korma casserole (vegan)

  • Italian stew (vegan)

  • Beet root patties (vegan)

  • Filled bell peppar (vegan)

Casseroles with no passion
Their Indian and Middle Eastern inspired casseroles were both weak in seasoning and the vegetables were over cooked. The korma was tasteless and lacked the correct seasoning. The Italian stew didn’t have anything that reminded us of Italy and the beet root patties didn’t even contain beet root.

A flirt with the Greek cuisine
The filled bell peppar with minced soya meat had a nice texture with the minced soya meat and beans. It was roasted perfectly until tender and some rich flavours had developed. It was a pleasant version of the Greek dish Gemista.

Final words
The lunch didn’t impress us and is not a place for the picky foodie. The big portions however feeds the hungry vegetarian who prefer a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Chutney also have great gluten-free options which is carefully written out on the menu.

Cozy atmosphere with multi cultural interior. The dark wooden bar, ockra painted walls, exotic candles, paintings and icons makes this place a little exotic

You pay at the counter by friendly staff though usually of few words. Sometimes the service staff appear stressed which create and uncommitted attitude.
