We visited this restaurant after reading all the good reviews. The food was disappointing. This applied to all several dishes ordered. The food had no authenticity.

My sincerest apologies for not be able to provide the menu you were hoping for . Hot Chilli specialises mainly in Eastern Indian, Assamese, Bengali, & Bihari food and spices. We do have a variety of dishes from other parts of India. But India is a huge sub continent with a plethora of dishes from different regions. More

This restaurant cannot be rated highly enough. First class food, first class service, and fantastic atmosphere. It was our first experience here but it definitely won't be our last. Ten out of ten all the way

Not the first time I've been to hot chilli and it certainly won't be the last. The staff are lovely and the food is delicious. The staff are attentive without being obtrusive, and the good is excellent value for money. Portions are big but hey you can take it home! Can't wait to go again!
