The Red Chilli restaurant just beyond the eastern edge of the City of London has got a trick up its sleeve. Outside, you’ll see a classic neo-Georgian brick front with white casement windows, but step inside and you’ll find the heart of traditional India transplanted to modern London. The interior is a haven of exposed brick, deep red curtains, carpets, and walls, smart leather seating, and tables set with spotless white linens. The bar is all shiny chrome, red leather and moody blue lighting. Red Chilli is a family-run business, with buzzy, vivacious staff and clientele. The menu covers Indian favorites, tandoori dishes, biryani specialties, great vegetarian choices and popular monthly menus.

    This was our first visit to the Red Chilli and it won't be the last ! Everything about the experience was good. Started with a warm welcome and poppadums and beer. Main courses and all the sides, naans and rice were top drawer and we all said afterwards how much we had enjoyed it all. The Open Table 50 % off the food bill was very helpful ! Our group of friends are all ex city workers so we only meet up about every three months but we will definitely be coming back here again at our next meeting in July.

    The food was delicious and the service was fine, but with so many good restaurants in London, I recommend going elsewhere. From the moment we sat down, this restaurant smelled like a mix of mold and a strong perfume, and, the service was adequate, but not overly friendly. We were so happy when the food arrived because it smelled good and overpowered the bad mold and perfume smell of the interior of the restaurant. It's too bad they can't pick up and move to a new location.

    I have visited Red Chilli several times and the food never fails, always tasty albeit pricey now. However this recent visit i found the service not that great. While in the middle of our starter (poppadoms) we were told our main was ready, we asked them to hold fire as we wasnt ready, after that the waiter kept hanging around. We had one beer in here because no one ever came to ask if we wanted another. They have done the place up and it looks good but the staff need to be a little more a-tentative. As i said, great food and definately worth a visit.

    Unfortunately we were unable to try Red chilli because five hours before the table was booked for and we were due to meet our clients,the restaurant telephoned and said they were unable to honour the booking as they were closed for refurbishment. This was after the table had been booked for 2 weeks.

    When we told the waiter about the food he was not interested never said sorry just cleared our plates and gave us our bill. I would like a manager to address our concernes but nobody came to ask why my plate and cold dish was still full i paid for a meal i could not eat. This was my first time staying over in London and next time i will stay away from red chilli this has put me off eating currys which i used to love

    I would have a guess and say this may be my 6th time at Red Chilli. The food never fails to disappoint and the staff are still as friendly as they have always been.
