Returning to this Indian after first visiting when it opened a few years ago, we dithered outside. It was 4pm on a Sunday, there was nobody else in there and we don't like too much formal attention. Maybe the chef would not be on duty yet and we'd get reheated food? Not a bit of it. Takeaway orders were being rung through every few minutes and the kitchen was active!
Tarka Dahl mild and right consistency, biryani rice perfectly flavoured, soft naan with crisp edges. Large portions which we shared. Friendly, warm and polite service. Difficulty walking up the hill afterwards!

Having just moved to Shanklin, we have been in search for a good curry, we tried a couple of takeaways close by only to be horribly disappointed. So we decided to try Red Chilli based on the good reviews. We are so glad we did, each dish looked and tasted different, all cooked fresh so were piping hot and tasty. Such a shame they don't deliver to Shanklin :-( but we will be back!

The restaurant is small and not very busy- it would appear that most of their business is take away. There was 4 of us so the lack of other customers didn’t detract but I’m not sure a meal for two would be good. The food was excellent though.

Found this little restaurant from reviews on TA, and wasn't disappointed. It looks nothing from the outside, but the food was excellent and full of flavour. Everything well presented, and the staff were friendly and efficient. Will definitely go there again when we're next on the IoW.

Don't be put off that this looks like a small Indian restaurant with a takeaway section. The menu was standard Indian fare, but the food was lovely. Good quality ingredients and plenty of it.
We found that there WAS a reason why this place was full, when many nearby restaurants were empty. Go in! you won't be disappointed.
