There is also a range of quirky desserts like a whole orange scooped and filled with a refreshing sorbet, as well as coconut ice cream served in a coconut shell.

    Our table was booked for 5.30. Were in area 10 mins before and as door was open and "open" sign showing went in. Waiter looked at his watch but showed us to table. Starters were king prawn puree and mixed starter 1 both of which were delicious. Nice and spicy. Mains were signature lamb shank and chicken rizella. Both were tasty but neither were spicy at all. Only time any member of staff was at all friendly was when we were paying so sadly we felt pretty disappointed with our experience especially after reading such great reviews.

    Had a great meal Saturday night. Service was excellent, friendly and welcoming. Great wine recommendations. We all had the tasting menu and it was very tasty. Lovely to enjoy different flavours and such a large selection. We all left full and happy. Thank you

    After work curry at The red Chilli in leman street 7 of us in our group we usually dine at another indian not so far away, we decided to dine here as our regular one was banged out and there was no seats but the red red chilli was nowhere near as full,now i know why, service was terrible, the manager kept popping out for a smoke every five minutes came back in i never see him wash his hands,then comes talking to us smelling of smoke,(i am a non smoker).Most of the waiting staff were really slow and looked very bored food was average but not fantastic ambience was ok bill was much higher than expected I would not send a friend there, now if you want to go there than its up to you I wont be going back no members of our group atcually said they enjoyed it and we are not hard to please
