I had curry and a masala dosa at Five Chutneys and I loved it. The owner is very kind and she will make it spicy even if you are white (yay! Thank you!). The food is full of flavor and the prices are fair.

We went there for lunch on our last day in Arusha. The ‘I am starving’ Thali was excellent with home like Phulka rotis. We also ordered the stuffed aloo / gobhi paratha which tasted amazing with their masala chai. Definitely visit if you in /...around Arusha.More

When we ( self Indian and my partner Lithuanian ) decided to travel to Arusha I searched for a veg restaurant and chanced upon Five Chutneys Jagat Bhai and Roshini Ji had created a dinning experience where you enter as a guest and leave as...a family member Our 5 days stay in Arusha the only place we had food was at Five Chutneys even they helped with their famous lunch boxes for our Safari trip. Listening to our special requirements and suggested dishes with the right amount of spices A cozy place but the experience was memorable not only for the authentic Indian dishes served but also the meetings of fellow guests , we met an elderly couple from South Africa who had been living a nomadic life last 14 years staying in various countries , the famous Russian traveller Vladimir was with his entourage for whom Roshini ji had cooked at short notice. The guests loved the food and the decorations on the wall. Even the local bbq owners were savouring the dishes one evening. Whether your taste buds needs massaging with a glass of mango lassi or your appetite is ready for a sumptuous Gujurati Thali , enjoy every dishes at Five Chutneys. The couple are supported by a courteous staff and service is paced at your request They have opened a second branch and wish all successMore
