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 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.

My husband and I visited this restaurant on a cold snowy Saturday evening in January. Whilst the temperature outside was below freezing the atmosphere inside was warm and welcoming. We were immediately escorted to our table and left for a reasonable amount of time to peruse the menu. There's the usual indian numbers on the menu but some unusual chef... More

A group of six of us visited while staying at the nearby Last Drop hotel. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was beautifully prepared. Usual Indian staples plus one or two interesting signature dishes. Be warned; the portions are big! (especially the Naans). Value was excellent. £114 for six people, including drinks, and we certainly couldn't finish it... More
