    The service was really bad. We ordered mango margaritas and then we ordered a second round. They tasted completely different from the first one so we asked to remake it. It was past 30 mins and our drinks were not ready so we just cancelled it. And then 10 min later they came out with our drinks. So we clarified that we already canceled it because it was already late. So the server was nice and she said it’s okay to have them they are on the house. And as soon as we start drinking she comes back and says she has to take the drinks back because the owner said.

    Amazing and delicious food. Indian food that tastes different and better than most restaurants I been to. Drinks were on point. The place is beautiful and ambiance is amazing. Felt like I was in SD Downtown. Service was a bit slow… my water never got filled again. But I thinks it’s a new place so everyone is still learning

    Food was amazing, super tasty (coming from someone who doesn’t really eat Indian). Wings and truffle chicken tikka were fire, pot pie was also delicious. Only thing lacking was staffing - seemed disorganized. We had a reservation for 630 and were told we would have to wait til party left, despite there being another table open - we were seated 40 min later. Also, tried getting a drink at the bar while waiting - didn’t get drinks til we were seated.

    We had a reservation, but it still took about 20-30 more minutes to be seated. I think we were sat in order of the timing people entered to be seated rather by reservation times. We started out with the Pani Puri. The first one I tried was the green one and then the White one, The last one was orange and it was my favorite! We also enjoyed the Butter Chicken Pot Pie. In my opinion, it needed some rice on the side. Some of the chicken we got wasn't fully cooked. We got the Chorizo Kulcha which was flavorful! My preference would be to have it cooked a tad bit longer... the underside was a bit too soft to pick up. I love a good Mango Lassi, so I tried this Mango Passion Fruit Rose Lassi ... it tasted great! However, I can't recall having a ton of ice in any I've ever had and I've had numerous! Please leave the ice out!! I would like to come back to try more items!

    We were extremely impressed with this place. It just opened a few months ago so our friends suggested we try it. It was nice the minute we walked in and we knew it had to be good since every table was occupied and all the other restaurants on the street we empty. It was a cold rainy Weds. eve. The tables and decor were very nice. The bar is impressive too! We had to wait a bit but they were very attentive, nice and helpful. Our friends ordered for us so I couldn't tell you everything we ordered but everything we had was DELICIOUS! There was another cute couple that came and sat in a booth by us and we kept looking at their food (different from what we ordered) and it all looked great too. They also remarked how happy they were to have discovered this place. Service was fabulous too! Highly recommend it.

    CaliChilli is located in the quaint Parkview Village of Long Beach. Thankfully we had reservations - it was bustling. The good was great! It had been a long time since we had really good Indian food and this was top notch. Highly recommend the 5 spice chicken wings, probably one of the best saag paneer ever and tandoor mushrooms which were really special. We also had the lamb chops which were very good. Our server made great recommendations and was very friendly. We will be going back soon.

    Great new restaurant in LB! I came just for the Butter Chicken Pot Pie & it did not disappoint. Everything else was delicious as well. The large TV’s all playing different shows was a bit distracting (perhaps feature the talented chef that created the concept and show his skills/food/background to give the diner a closer look into who he is)

    Creative dishes that reflect the Indian influence but are uniquely "unauthentic" as noted by the chef. All dishes were delicious, generously portioned, and beautifully presented. Service was excellent and attentive. Although I didn't drink because it was during a work day, I'm also happy that they now have their liquor license.

    My daughter and I really enjoyed taking advantage of the dine LA dinner on a weeknight. And it included three entrées off a special menu plus a dessert, as well as naan and rice. This is Indian fusion so you can expect the unexpected such as Korean style sticky ribs. The fried calamari was breaded but very lightly and it was not greasy. It came with tartar sauce. My daughter did not like the saag aloo because it did not taste like the average dish you got at every other Indian restaurant. But I liked the taste of the fresh spinach. The naan came out hot and fluffy and it was fabulous. We had so much food left over that I’m still eating at out of my refrigerator. I was excited when I was told that the dessert was carrot cake but it actually wasn’t carrot cake it was some sort of dense rich carrot dessert that I wasn’t familiar with. With a yummy chocolate ganache on top. I guess I would’ve liked it better if it was a cake. The host server Tyler was friendly, knowledgeable and solicitous. He is really an asset to the establishment. They have a full liquor license now so I had a tasty mango margarita. I would eat here more regularly if it was more affordable, I really wish they would have a fixed price dinner every day like they do in European restaurants. If so I would be there a lot more often. Meanwhile I will be back.

    Food is REALLY good. But it is just TOO expensive for anything other than a special occasion. 2 people, 2 entrees, 1 rice, 1 nan, and only 1 non alcoholic drink, $80 (just under $100 including tip). Service was friendly, and the decor is really nice. But honestly, the food is not that much better than other Indian restaurants that are MUCH more affordable, the food quality or taste, although really good… does not warrant these prices compared to other area restaurants.

    We were disappointed w/ no alcohol options at all. The food was all very spicy with not many options of mon spicy food, so it wasn’t a good choice with our kid. I understand it’s an Indian fusion restaurant and don’t get me wrong, some items were good but we prefer traditional Indian fare to this restaurant.

    Food’s good, but they seemed understaffed. Staff is also nice but not professional with managing timing and reservation. My party and a few other parties were waiting for their reserved tables. It may be helpful to inform guests without reservations that they have the table until “x” time, so people with reservations don’t have to wait for their tables for 30 minutes.

    We decided to try this tiny new little restaurant that humbly advertised as having a Michelin star chef cooking up “unauthentic Indian food.” Our reservations were at 5 PM on a warm Saturday evening and there was already a small crowd waiting to get in. They’ve only been open a few months and still do not have their liquor license yet but the bar was inviting. A wall of mirrors with brass piping accenting the glasses with a soft hot pink under lighting in the seating area. Dining tables are moderately close together but this just leads to conversation with other guests. There is a small area outside on the sidewalk bordered by raised garden beds that they referred to as the garden area for dining as well. The menu offers small plates, large plates, Entrées from the clay oven and sides. The dishes are very interesting to include the typical meats of chicken, shrimp, beef and lamb in various sauces including the infamous curry. I am not a fan of hot spicy and all my dishes had just the right amount of temperature for my palate. You could easily have fun with two or more people ordering small plates and sampling an array of the interesting dishes the chef prepares. The only negative we experienced was that the three of us each got our main course at different times with mine being the last, having to wait approximately 20 minutes after my friend was first served. No doubt due to growing pains from being a newly opened restaurant. The staff remained friendly and comped my entrée as a thank you to me for having to wait so long….. a good business move. I will definitely be returning, hopefully when they have their liquor license, and enjoy a drink and small plates at the inviting bar. I wish this gem of a restaurant the best of luck.

    The food here is excellent. They're hoping to have their liquor license soon and I'm sure it'll become a very popular spot. I think they should get rid of the TVs. It gives the place a sports bar vibe and I feel like the focus should be on just being the really great restaurant, but that's a minor criticism. Don't let yourself miss the food. It's really good and well done.
