When you're tired of the city's Indians or "the vegetarian alternative", this is one of surprisingly few places to go to. It's cheap, and you basically get what you're paying for. But it's tasty, and the vibe is good.

This restaurant offers a buffet and some dishes 'à la carte'. We tried the vegan burger and the vegan skewers (tofu and seitan). Both of them were very good, especially the seitan which is fantastic even if there are only 3 small skewers in the dish. The rest is salad or potatoes, which is a pity. Otherwise, the place is very pleasant, you can take a free salad and hummus at the entrance and they have good vegan cakes. Good vibes, friendly staff and reasonable prices. It is a must go in Stockholm.
It's a great place!
The buffé menu goes for 90 sek or 100 sek if you want to mix several types of dishes + free refill.
Also includes a sallad buffé, bread, tea & coffee, water (which is always free in any Swedish restaurant)
The A - la - carte menu is more pricy but still cheap - goes for 145ish.
Id'd guess the place is maybe 70% vegan
So much taste. Nice staff, good prices. Pluss for free refill of food. Will def go back!
They had great vegan dishes for lunch, you pay for one plate and can come back to refill once, so the price is actually for a plate and a half, it's a lot of food, totally worth the money. They also had a delicious chocalate pie.
Stayed in Stockholm very close by, so had the pleasure of going a couple of times. Rotating vegan dishes available with good portion sizes and served with really delicious brown bread and fruit-laden water. Had a nice array of sweets for dessert or fika as well. Extremely busy, but you can reserve a table in advance online (a must for most hours of the day).
Chutney is a cosy place I've eaten dinner at a couple of times, and sometimes just grabbed a cup of tea and a cake. The vegan hamburger is my favorite but it's pretty expensive to me. the staff is nice and half of both food and cake menu is usually vegan. some of the cakes arent worth the money but some of them really are.
During lunch-hours and dinner time, it gets crowded real fast so one should try to get there early if you want a place to sit.
Really tasty food and plenty of it. You can go back for more if the first helping wasn't enough, or if you're just greedy like me! The salad and bread selection to go with the meal was really nice too. Most of the options on the menu were vegan when I went. Very good value too - 93SEK for the food. Good selection of beers.
Chutney is often mentioned, even recommended to a vegan who has recently moved to Stockholm. Checked it out today at late lunch time. It was not that crowded we got our own table.
There were three vegan dishes on the lunch list (for 80 SEK, including coffee and salad and bread - the interesting looking brown bread was not vegan though). Additionally there was the obligatory (I think in ALL the vegetarian restaurants in Sweden) not-vegan lasagne...
Vegan burger would have cost more, 120 SEK I think.
The "Indiska biffar med potatismos och rödbetsås" was very good! The lady behind the dish who served the food mentioned right away that it's okay to have more food if youre still hungry - and the portion WAS quite small so both my and companion went back for seconds.
On the minus side: the coffee on the lunch buffet side table was stale and old, and i saw the waitress add new coffee on top of the old in the pan! Whoa!
There was the possibility to PAY for coffee (obviously, it's o lunch cafeteria type of place), even special coffees like espresso etc I would assume that would taste better.
Pretty good food, some of it Indian-inspired.
There's a nice salad bar you can pick from with your meal, so you can augment the main food with some good sides as you wish.
The food was tasty, and service was decent. Pleasant outdoor seating if you want it.
Pretty easy to get to using the metro, which is nice for a visitor.
Around 80 sek for one good dish you can fill again, tea free. Only 2 vegan dessert : one chocolate cake I didnt very appreciate and the chocolate ball.
Crowded, you will have to book or share your table.
Worth the walk across town... One of the best chocolate cakes ever tasted.. Cool people, cool food!
This is one of my favorite places to visit when I am in Stockholm. Chutney usually has several dishes you can choose from, and some are vegetarian and some are vegan. To the food they serve bread, salad and water flavored with lemons, cucumbers or other fruit. A great thing is that you can take your plate back for seconds after finishing up. Yum!
A cool thing is that you can make a combo plate with two of the dishes and thus maximize the flavors. Every time I have been there, the food has been great.
Most important, they have vegan chocolate balls and they are the best chocolate balls I have ever had. They have other delicious vegan desserts as well.
I love this place. The food is good, generous portion (and it is OK to ask for moore food if it would not be enough), the atmosphere cozy and the price low for being Sweden. It might be an good idea to book a table in the evening since it usually is crowded.
I often eat lunches with friends at Chutney. They have really good food for pretty good prices. It's not all vegan, but the vegan food is always really good. They also have vegan desserts.
I've only been there once, so i tasted just one dish. The flavor was great and I appreciated it. They have a lot of vegan cakes and they are delicious also. Atmosphere was nothing special but fine for a group of friends that want to spend their dinner time together. No privacy for a couple, for instance.
What I suggest to the owner is to have more particular and original dishes. The rest is ok.
Alternative left people come here of tradition. It is canteen food, messy, sometimes ok but mostly you miss flavors. They make some kind of Swedish version of Indian and other Asian food very often, which means tasteless and boring. There are a lot of Indian restaurants in this areas where you can get better vegetarian food.
I have been here many times during the years. You end up here when you live in Sodermalm and don't know where to go because there are not so many veg restaurants in Sodermalm.

Do they have the same things on the menu for 20 years now? It is pretty expansive for Indian canteen food!
Why do we come here? There are not so many better alternatives in Sthlm....

There are no other vegetarian restaurants with vegan options in Södermalm open in the evening so I came here again. Nice wine, but the food as usual. Dry and tasteless. The most tasty thing on my plate was the potato...
We ate at Chutney - which our friend Vegan Ann from China told us about. This is an absolutely amazing Indian food with the Swedish style buffet. You get unlimited chutney, Swedish bread and vegetables, coffee and tea with up to two plates of amazing food. It was so good we ate their for lunch and dinner the same day! I still miss the food to this day. They have desserts as well, which are ok but not amazing- the meals were better.
Aside from uninterested staff an amazing place! Cozy locale and really good food! Could be a bit more daring and spicy, but delicious anyway!
Many vegan options and vegan desserts. Try the vegan burger, it is excellent. Chutney is located by many popular shopping streets in my favorite part of Stockholm. Has outdoor seating. A lunch-menu and an a-la-cartemenu. They make their own chutney which is really good.
We were a bit dubious of the food when we ordered since it was hidden behind the counter a bit out of view. However, it turned out to be good, nothing extraordinary, but worth the trip. A few main entrees were offered to go with a small salad bar. The interior of the restaurant it a bit cramped, but we sat outside on the sidewalk which made for a nice dining experience.
It is a popular vegetarian place in Stockholm, but I guess it is not so much because of the food but because of its location and cozy atmosphere. Food is not bad, but smth is missed always, would it be flavours or smth else. But they always have some vegan cakes on menu which do taste great.
I went there a couple times when I was in Stockolm
except the waitress, everything was great.
we took 1 of the 4 dinner special (83 krona if i remember it well) 3 of the 4
were vegan the both night I went there.
there is a nice salad bar
different sauces that are extremely good
you can refill as more as u like (beware , not the place to choose if you have no self control on food lol)
really nice vibe
Best veg burger I've ever had!
Good place for lunch, i havn't tried it other times though.
Relaxed atmosphere but food not that good - I'd recommend other restaurants like Lao Wei or the Hermitage.
This restaurant is located in a very good place and it has many christian icons and crucifixes which i like very much. It has a good ambience so you must eat there sometimes.
Ate some vegan apple and plum pies with vanilla sauce and tofu ice cream. The pies very heavy and good for the price. Not diet food! Service was a bit slow and location is off center.
Located in the trendy "SoFo" district its hard to spot amongst all the other cafes. Quite busy on a saturday. No English menu but the serving staff described everything for us. You collect your food and pay at the main counter unless you order a sandwich (ciabatta) which they bring to your table. There is a complimentary drinks and salad bar by the entrance.
Went to Chutney while visiting Stockholm two weeks ago and ended up eating there twice. The first time I went the food was amazing I got some vegetable bombay dish that was awesome. Second time I went I had the vegetable curry dish which was good but nowhere close to as good as my previous meal. Both meals were vegan but make sure you read whats in each dish. One was marked vegan but still had honey in it. I believe its honung since the whole menu was in Swedish. Also, a lot of their meals are gluten free and their entrees (the 150 krona dish) looked amazing. Wish I got to try it. As other people have stated you can go back and get more and bread, green tea and coffee are all free.
I agree with the other reviews, do go for the daily menu, it's a really good deal. I had the curry, which was one of the two vegan options of the day. It tasted a bit "weird", not bad, just different from what I've had before. I loved the rice that came with it though, indian-spiced rice, yummmm! Also the free bread was good, so was the salad. Portions were big, but in case you feel like more you can ask for refill. Give it a try if you're around the area, personally I wouldn't go out of my way to come here.
I went to Chutney on a Sunday afternoon (lunchtime) and was impressed firstly with how few people there were in the restaurant as opposed to the overcrowded foodcourts and restaurants in the centre of town. The place has a cozy feel about it, the food was pretty good (and organic!). The lunch menu had 4 choices to choose from, including vegan options. (Today's menu included 2 types of vegetable stew with rice, one Indian and one Lebanese, bean burgers with what looked like shallow fried potatoes and a baked pasta dish). Bread, shredded carrots with optional dressing, chutney, chilli paste, water and coffee were free. I loved the fact that I could go back for seconds (which I did, as the Lebanese stew I had was delicious), although portions are not ungenerous in size as it is. I also had a vegan coconut ball and a slice of apple pie, both of which tasted great (not very easy on the sugar though).Staff spoke English,which helped, especially when you want to know which dishes are strictly vegan. The main meal was a set price of 85 SEK, which I thought was very reasonable, especially since junkfood at shopping malls costs nearly the same. All in all, I was quite happy with the experience.
Go for the daily menu, it's cheaper and it tastes really great. Has about 4 daily changing menu's to choose from, internationnaly inspired, eg japenese, thai, indian, moroccon... and you can actually ask for seconds! My favourite in Stockholm.
yes, you got a lot of food and it wasn't too expensive, but aside from that fact it wasn't all too impressive. presentation was non-existent and good was pretty bland. go somewhere else!
You get a lot of food for the money. Very good. Tastes homemade. A long menu to choose from.
Really lovely little cafe. Served hot, healthy meals with generous portions- great value for money. Staff were very welcoming and spoke perfect english, explained all the dishes and ensured our meal was totally vegan. For roughly £8 you get a huge plate of food (which can be refilled!) bread, salad, dressings, coffee, tea and water. They also had two lovely desserts, both vegan. I would thoroughly recommend this place! Its also off a great road full of cute young designers and shops.
good food, nice place, you can sit outside in summer. "todays dish" is quite a bit cheaper and was tastefull.
