Tastiest lamb

Visiting family I looked on Trip Advisor for a nearer Indian restaurant than we usually go to. The Lamb Bengal was fantastic. The lamb was the tastiest lamb I've ever had in Indian Cuisine. It melted in the mouth with a fantastic kick. I'm not sure what you could have with it, maybe raita and... read more

Quietly tucked away this little delight of a restaurant is worth a visit!! Being a healthy couple we don't like greasy oily foods, worried as some Indian restaurants make the curries oily or not enjoyable. We was both very happy with the food!! Freshly and cleaned cooked in beautiful spices. Service, and staff were lovely!!!!!! We've found a local curry... More

I've driven past here on a number of occasions and thought I must try it out. I have to say I was underwhelmed. Given that the competition for an Indian restaurant is around every corner, I shan't be returning to Hot Chilli. The bhaji was tasteless and a main meal from the Specials tasted burnt. Yes we complained and the... More

We booked a weekend away in Bolton specifically to eat at this restaurant which my husband had visited once on a business trip, and we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious and exciting and the owner was very friendly, attentive but not overbearing. We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We have visited Hot Chilli alot of times and we all agreed it is the best Indian in Bolton. All the dishes were excellant, not too heavy and lightly spiced so you could taste the meat or fish in the dish. The Sunday £10.95 offer is fantastic value with no restrictions on the menu. Its well worth a visit.

Very dissapointing, maybe OK of there's just two of you but they struggle with larger parties. Our food was outrageously spicy and we were told thats what we ordered!!! Certainly didn't. They were quire rude

We booked a table for Friday night and the place was buzzing. The restaurant has an extensive menu and we asked Ray for his recommendations for starters and mains. All 4 of us were pleased with our choices. The food was excellent. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and we will definitely be going back.
