Culinary School graduate and James Beard honoree Chef Navjot Arora has put together a unique menu borrowing from the vast culinary diversity of India.
We truly believe great food starts with great ingredients. We procure only fresh, wholesome ingredients with no artificial flavorings or additives, local produce wherever possible, all natural poultry, free range lamb, wild not farmed seafood. We grind our own spices to ensure freshness.

The New York Times gave high marks to our succulent tandoori cooked meats and referred to our sauces as superbly complex.” Vegetarians will feel like royalty” says The Journal News, referring to our delicious curries and vegetable appetizers. Our menu reflects Chef Navjot’s true passion for food that began from a very young age. He further honed his skills and learnt from the very best master chefs at the Taj Group of Hotels

The menu offers a variety of combination platters, along with biryanis, curries, tandoori entrees.

We went to Chutney Masala late Sunday afternoon. It wasn't crowded, though it certainly had picked up by the time we left. The atmosphere/decor is lovely. The food is prepared very well and our waiter couldn't have been nicer. Highly recommend for delicious Indian food. I was the driver so I will definitely go back to try one of their intriguing cocktails. My friend enjoyed a glass from the nice wine list.

The butter chicken was good but the tandoori chicken ( malai ) was not fully cooked and lacked flavour. Garlic naan was very good

Enjoying a weekend getaway in Tarrytown and found Chutney Masala on line and then reserved through Open Table. A very good Indian food experience was really diluted by several groups of diners who gave up trying to control their young kids.
Good if you are seeking family friendly”, albeit not what we envisioned for a Saturday evening. Shame.

Stands out from the typical Westchester Indian restaurant for many reasons. The menu is extensive; while it has the typical choices in every category, there are original “takes” on things. An example is “tofu Manchurian” which was very good( hot!)which I have not seen anywhere else. Dishes cover most areas of India. Dishes which should be mild are and those that should pack a punch, do! Everything is marked spicy or not, so no surprises
Service is competent and pleasant, but we thought it to be slow; perhaps one could interpret it as “not being rushed”!! However, we ordered a lamb biryani and got goat ( both were offered). I do not enjoy dodging the fragments of bone that typically inhabit goat dishes on the region.
Importantly, THEY SERVE 1947 BEER!!! This is the ideal accompaniment to Indian food. Different from other beers, it is tasty but does not bloat you

Anyone looking for good Indian food around here should not miss this place. Plus, street parking is plentiful and free

Chutney Masala happens to be the best Indian food we have had in a very long time. It is certainly worth the drive for us and we plan on returning frequently. We were happy to see that the majority of the patrons were Indian families, which means to us that they dine at Chutney Masala because they find the food authentic. The only blip was with one staff member who, though well-meaning, had no idea about alcohol at all, which is fine. My husband ordered a Campari and soda, and when the server said that they were out of it (I suspect they never have had it), he offered my husband Southern Comfort instead! Shades of Janis Joplin, anyone? Anyway, that really didn't matter once we dug into our food. We ordered far too much on purpose and were very happy to reprise the meal the next day.

Chutney Masala consistently delivers great food and solid service. Having recently returned from a trip to India, it was good to see that Chutney still held up, as compared to natively prepared food. It's the best restaurant in Irvington and maybe best in the Rivertowns. Never disappointed.

It took about 1/2 hour to get a servers attention even though the restaurant was practically empty. Somehow none of the servers would make eye contact! We had to send back a lamb dish because it was undercooked and not warm. We ended up ordering another lamb dish in its place and the rest of the meal was fine. I’ve been to Chutney many times in the past but not sure I will be going back anytime soon.

Chutney Masala consistently delivers wonderful flavors, even in simple dishes. Whether the classic northern India dishes or new variations, I'm always impressed with their food. The foods always taste incredibly fresh, and the service is wonderful. I've never had a disappointing meal here.

We made a reservation for 8:45pm and arrived 9pm just 30 minutes before they closed. The bartender and waiter were very pleasant and did not rush us , so we really appreciated that!! They ran out of lychee juice for a martini so the waiter recommended a Tajtini after asking what kind of flavors I would be interested and it was AMAZING. The food was Restaurant Week and portion sizes were VERY generous! All in all amazing experience, we were celebrating our 1st Holi after marriage dinner and now we are looking forward to coming back!!

The restaurant relocated to a bright, cheerful, sunny space on Main Street in Irvington, a charming river town with good restaurants, shops, and historic places to visit [Sunnyside and Lyndhurst]. There wasn't a big lunch crowd but we saw many outgoing orders, so it must be popular. There is an extensive menu. We were there during Restaurant Week and decided to go with that menu. The choices were good and flavorful and the price reasonable. I took the rest of mine home for dinner. Our server was very solicitous, returning several times to make sure everything was OK. The manager was welcoming and also checked on us and refilled our glasses. I would return. I wish them well.

Took advantage of restaurant week. Had the lunch special. Choice of Four appetizers we tried two Both good four entrees we tried lamb-excellent- and “Goan”shrimp curry. Which was sour but otherwise ok. Came with a rice pilaf of sorts and delicious fresh naan. Desert included ras malai which is where we always stop
Service was cheerful, prompt, and competent
Of note, they have “1947” beer. Which is ideally suited to Indian food: cooling, not filling and many non-beer drinkers like it

I really love their ras malai.
They have a very nice space. It was a Monday, mid-day and was mostly quiet (only 2 other tables). I could see it being a little loud if there were more people.
They serve large portions, so each meal I get 2-3 extra meals out of it.

Excellent food although the service was not that attentive. Ambiance is pleasant and noise level low enough to have conversation with your table mates. Disappointed that the dosa wasn’t available on Sunday evening. Overall a very good dining experience.
