Have eaten at most of the Red Chilli, chain restaurants, but tried this one for the first time recently. Food was, as always, nice. The menu is identical to the other branches, but offers a lot of choice. However, the service was average beyond belief, with one waitress throwing half of our starter on the floor and then expecting us... More

This had some good reviews and seemed to be full of Chinese speaking people, so that seemed a good enough recommendation, despite no menu outside. We were early for tea, but from a very grubby tatty menu we ordered the second set menu. Soup was tasty. As the waiter cleared that, another brought us someone else's bill. Starters were fried,...

I went here based on a recommendation from a colleague. However, I was advised that the quality of service would be poor. However, the rave reviews on food won me over. I was not disappointed with the quality of the food, it was fantastic. Lovely authentic food. I'd highly recommend the Stir Fry Pork. The portion sizes were good for... More

The food is once again very nice, and the selection is brilliant. However the service this time was appalling. The drinks we ordered never arrived, and the Chips were also AWOL, and they attempted to charge us anyway. When questioned about this, the waitress claimed there were no chips on the bill and wouldn't remove them, despite the total amount... More

We popped in for a meal after work and went for a banquet at £26 per head. The food was excellent and we left stuffed. Well recommended!

Was in Manchester last night with the family and decided to try Chinese food for our evening meal. It is difficult to find a fully halal restaurant but we were recommended Red Chilli that serves most dishes with Halal Chicken or Lamb if requested. There are combination Indian/Chinese Halal restaurants but in my experience they don't give the authentic experience... More

We are quite fussy about Chinese food as we lived in Singapore in the 1980s and find the monosodium glutamate so often added to it in British restaurants destroys the authentic flavours of the ingredients. As soon as we tasted the food at Red Chilli, however, it brought back memories of the freshly prepared rice, vegetables, seafood and herbs that... More

Headed here on a whim and the food was excellent. I ordered crispy shredded fillet beef in Cantonese sauce and it was very fresh. The meat was actually shredded fillet of beef and tasted fresh, rather than the frozen kind. My boyfriend ordered chicken in black bean sauce which wasn't even on the menu and they obliged and made it... More

A few of us from work decided to have our Christmas meal here. It proved easy to get to and parking at the back by the hospital is free after 8, In short, the food served was generally of very good quality (most of us enjoyed our dishes) but the service left something to be desired, It wasn't the actual...
