    The food was good, but the portions are small, comes without rice . Pricey for Indian food. I prefer other local places that are much better and priced fairly.

    This was one of the nicest restaurants I had been to in a long time. It totally overachieved in all areas. I had to pinch myself because I had not had a dinner out in a long time like this. I've been to many upscale restaurants however, this total ambiance captured it all. I'm looking forward to coming back real soon and bringing many friends to have this Grand experience.

    What a great dining experience! The food was unique and delicious, the staff were all very attentive and friendly, and the vibe was amazing. Don’t judge this place from the outside or the location, the inside is not what you’d expect! The butter chicken pot pie is a must! Also loved that they have a mocktail menu.

    I’m a Pakistani and hence very critical of Pakistani and Indian restaurants. This was by far the best Indian restaurant I’ve been to in OC. The Butter chicken was an amazing delicious experience done like a chicken pot pie. The lamb chops were delicious, and the pani puri was fun and tasty. The atmosphere is an amazing surprise especially when the outside is deceiving, they have a speakeasy thing going. Great experience.

    Our fifth visit to this remarkable restaurant. Authentically an Asian fusion restaurant and unauthentically Indian as titled. Don’t miss the pane puri’s to start. From there you can’t go wrong. Close your eyes and point and you will be pleased. For a drink, try the mango margarita’s — India meets Mexico. For presentation pleasure ask for a biryani, especially the lamb shank version.

    The food was excellent last night. We had the butter chicken pot pie, lamb kebabs, nachos, and sticky ribs- all were delicious. What we didn’t like was that our reservation was at 7pm and we weren’t seated until 7:30. The host never really apologized and they don’t have anywhere to sit and wait.

    My experience was excellent, I had a wonderful night I can confidently say I had a serendipity night. To continue, the food we ordered was amazing, the drinks my company and I ordered were non alcoholic but we both liked our own drinks very much. Furthermore, it was a morsel of what a person can expect from India, I am happily surprised.

    2nd time here (1st time was soft opening and bar not ready yet). Food is still amazing! Waiter definitely is super knowledgeable about the entire menu including drinks! He suggested a couple of drinks off the menu and both were a delight! Definitely will be back. 1 small comment is the “pastry” for the pani puri poppers were a little bit too big to be taken as a single bite.

    Now I know why there are Michelin stars! Our meal during Long Beach Dine Out was excellant. The chef creates unique dishes inspired by his Indian background. Not only was the food delicious but the cocktails made by the bartender looked so unique and inviting. We definitely want to come back and taste some of those creations. We're so glad we chose CaliChilli for a special dinner out!

    I read so many great reviews that I had to try Cali Chili. The food was great! My husband ordered the Vindaloo with ribs & I had the rendang with chicken. We shared the citrus salad & kulcha with cheese & jalapeño. I wasn’t sure what to expect but ordered based on the descriptions. We were very pleased with our choices but saw so many other amazing looking dishes that we will be back!

    Wow! All I can say is why did I wait so long to try this. Everything we ordered was outstanding! I told my family the naan was better than the one I had in India. Though flavors are more subdued, it works and the execution is spectacular! Original way of serving byriani, but clever! Can’t wait to bring more friends here since it is almost walking distance from my home.
