When we arrived we had to wait for a table, shown to comfortable seating area and were shown to our table within fifteen minutes. Food we ordered was neither tasty or appealing. Soups were bland. Starters were large but the meat was grisly and hard to eat. Mains were also very difficult to eat as the meat was very tough... More

I've eaten here a few times and can honestly say the food is excellent. Really tasty and large portions. However, The service is a let down. I always feel very uncomfortable around the staff. They don't smile at all and tend to linger around you whilst you eat. One issue I had is when ordering a prawn chow Mein the... More

Went after the races, we had booked. It was very busy but the food still came out in a quick time. Ordered a load of dishes for us all to chafe and all of them were great tasting. Some were possibly a little spicier than I was expecting and I'm used to eating spicy food so be mindful of that.

Had the prawn toast which was 8 pieces plus 3 spring rolls and sauces which were nice. Staff were friendly throughout with a smile. Had the shredded crispy steak with onion/red pepper plus panguin fish plus seafood rice. Only complaints were hole in the table cloth and the shrimp+pork dumplings looked smaller on the menu - they were quite large... More

Agreeing with a number of reviewers, food is ok, but the service is so terrible, with rude and abruptness waitress, made a complaint to the manager (Jason), but not sure if he had take any notice. If you want a pleasant meal out with good customer service then Avoid Red Chili Restaurant, York

We visited this restaurant at lunchtime on August Bank Holiday. No lunchtime special menu was available but we were quickly seated and enjoyed a very enjoyable lunch. The menu has been expanded since our last visit and contains many unusual dishes. costs are reasonable and service was prompt and our waitress very helpful.

I'm a Chinese food snob, being born and raised in Taiwan and having traveled extensively in China so I know what good Chinese food is. So I didn't have much faith in finding decent Chinese cuisine in York, England, of all places, but I was pleasantly surprised. We just had a simple lunch of two different noodle dishes: spicy Sichuan... More

Menu seemed authentic, pleasant staff, incredibly quick service - suspiciously too quick. Very deep fried cuisine with two dishes (beef and spare ribs), not to my liking, dumplings grey and bland, fish almost unpalatably salty. The side dish of green veg in garlic and the boiled rice were ok! Sorry disappointing, won't be going back.
