Chutney Masala Indian Bistro
IRVINGTON (WABC) -- It's an authentic Indian restaurant in Westchester County.
Authentic because the owner molded it after bistros in his hometown in India.
Some of the dishes you can't find anywhere, unless you were to eat at the owner's mother's kitchen.
Chutney Masala Indian Bistro doesn't feel or look like a traditional Indian restaurant though. It's located at 4 Main Street in Irvington.
