    Been to the Red Chilli quite a few times over the last few years when working on London. This week arranged for a party of 8 including my boss, and my bosses boss... Everyone loved the place, the food and the staff. So all in all, good for my career! :)

    Excellent alternative to Brick Lane options if you are in this area of London. Better atmosphere, better service, better food. Highly recommend.

    I understand that restaurant management wants to be authentic, but stuff has to talk more clearly. Just mumbling after questions not working. Food was great after all

    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
