My husband and I had lunch here on Easter Sunday. A nice restaurant, pleasant staff and great menu. We chose the two courses lunchtime special and enjoyed our food but were not wowed. The shrimp fried rice was a bit bland so we ordered a portion of black bean sauce to accompany it. The sauce was delicious. We would possibly... More

Restaurant is nice but the food is horrible all the meat and chicken had a weird texture really slimy. Staff were friendly but I wouldn't recommend this restaurant again due to the weird slimy meat and chicken

Extensive menu more traditional Chinese than you may be used to. If you are a strict sweet and sour chicken every time type this is not for you. Do not be put off though food was good.

We were greeted warmly at the door and waited for only 5 minutes on a busy bank holiday evening. Our order was taken quickly and efficiently.We went for the 3 course vegetarian menu. The peanuts and pickled vegetables were a delicious amuse bouche while our soups came. The soup was essentially hot salty water with some tomato, egg and cucumber... More

I went for lunch with my family (6 in total) having been here on a few previous occasions. Sadly the service was very poor in that the food we ordered both took a long time and also we were not served together. A few minutes would be acceptable but there was a gap of 20 minutes between the first person... More

Second visit to Red Chilli and just as impressed as first time. We had the special lunch menu which was excellent value - £6.50, £8.50 or £10 for one, two or three courses. Very good range of dishes at each level. Despite being a lunchtime special the portions are not reduced and represent very good value. The food is tasty,... More

We had the set meal for two, and I found the starter of fried ribs and sesame toast extremely greasy. However the crispy duck and pancakes were lovely and more than we could eat so by the time the sizzling beef and sweet and sour chicken came for our main course we were already struggling to eat it. Ambience and... More

We visited Red Chilli with business partners and were not disappointed. Ethnic Chinese food as testified by the sheer number of Asian people dining on the night we visited. The food is incredibly tasty with a vast menu containing all the usual favourites plus some choices alien to a British palette such as ducks tongues! The fixed banquet menus are... More
