Description: Having worked abroad for several years, husband and wife team Alan and Dawn Sperring returned to Brighton to find it in the grip of an enthusiasm for Indian food. They found the perfect spot in the cobbled lanes amongst the jewellery and antique shops of Meeting House Lane.The Chilli Pickle gradually but inexorably gained its reputation through word of mouth. As guests returned again and again, they knew that Brighton was ready for an authentic but distinctive experience of Indian cuisine. Gathering together an expert team of chefs with specialisms in a variety of Indian regional cuisines, the Chilli Pickle's own style became increasingly defined.After two and a half years at Meeting House Lane an unmissable opportunity came along: a move to the myhotel premises on the bustling Jubilee Square. The Chilli Pickle is now an established presence on the Brighton culinary trail, but with a constantly evolving and seasonal menu, will surprise seasoned aficionados of Indian cuisine and delight those having their first experience.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on impulse when we were looking for a quick bit before the comedy club. I think we were lucky to get in and we were more than a little surprised... The service was prompt, the menu was innovative and the quality and presentation of the food was excellent. I have visited India 5-6... More

I went with colleagues for lunch recently. Staff were friendly, food was delicious and the restaurant has a clean and vibrant feel to it. The portions don't look large at first, but they are deceptively filling!

My husband and myself ate here last night whilst staying at My hotel. It's a lovely friendly cosy atmosphere with candles. I am a bit fussy when it comes to spicy food as although I like a bit of spice, I don't like food too spicy so I was a bit worried that everything would be too hot for me.... More

Went with 5 colleagues from work and i have been numerous times so know what to expect. I had the persian chicken biryani which was excellent and well presented.

Great atmosphere for Indian food, family's and groups in the restaurant, not at all a lager and curry place! Would recommend you book a table.

Had lunch here on Saturday 9th August with my wife and son. This was our third visit and just as delightful as the previous two. This is food of superior quality served imaginatively. A visit here is an indispensable part of the Brighton experience

The food here is simply amazing. The best Indian food in Brighton by a mile. Not just your standard dishes either. So many others restaurants have failed in My Hotel but Chilli Pickle has been busy since the day it opened. Its little wonder why either. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for.

I'll keep it quick. Staff attentive. Quality food. Fantastic setting. Not your usual gloopy curries. Must book and try.
