Very authentic Chinese Food.

If you're expecting the bog standard 'chow mein and sweet and sour dishes' you may find this place not for you. However, if you like real Chinese Food, you must try this. It's a massive menu, with some bewildering choices, but we were very impressed. We went on a Monday night and it was quite busy... read more

Not your average Chinese menu. Great selection. If you are like me, try something new every time then this is the right place to come to. Although the menu looks a bit tacky due to the vast amounts of images and platters, it does always taste nice. The lunch menu is not as nice and i wouldn't be surprised if... More

We were there with a Sichuanese friend and we loved the food, especially the Super Spicy Hot Poached Sea Bass with Dried Chilli Oil and the Sichuan Mrs Spotty’s Recipe Beancurd with Minced Beef.

I cannot recommend Red Chilli highly enough- the food was outstanding and the service spot on. Having a close Cantonese friend I have eaten a lot of authentic oriental food and generally didnt expect to find this in York City center, so was pleasantly surprised. The menu, although a little confused, is expansive with a range of exciting options such... More

Always busy so it must be popular! It's a large restaurant but with a good feel. I always enjoy it here. Love the squid. Sometimes service can be a little slow but only when you can see they are rushed off their feet. Very helpful staff.
