No cuisine gets me more excited than Indian and I am such a fan of Indian food that my primary reason for visiting India was to enjoy the food in its country of origin.

We decided to have Indian takeaways while in Taradale so we visited the Red Chilli. Our meals were awesome and the Heat level was a little lower than expected (Medium) however very well priced and wait time was acceptable, all in all a great experience and highly recommend trying.

A small casual restaurant that served up delicious flavours and plenty to eat. The mixed starters is enough for a main if you don't have a big appetite. The chilli chicken options have amazing flavour and well presented.

Ordered two mild Butter Chicken meals for takeaway. Got them home and found them to have no flavor at all. Tasted bland and boring. Will not be returning.
