Was in Manchester on Saturday, had been to watch the football and found our way to the Red Chilli in the evening. All 4 of us had an excellent meal, we felt the food was a very high standard and reasonably priced, would be happy to recommend.

Having visited manchester many times in the last few years, I had yet to visit Chinatown and following a recommendation from a friend, this was my first foray into the multitude of restaurants in the area and I am so glad I visited this establishment. The menu is vast and contains an exciting array of authentic dishes that will suit... More

Some people have said they put on compulsory tip, which they have never done in the 5 years I've been going on a regular basis. Others have described food that isn't on the menu (something about cubed chicken?) Someone else said the tables are all hot plates - that is not true at this restaurant! Guess you can't always trust... More

The food here is outstanding, proper, non Americanised Chinese. Huge portions, massive variety. Be adventurous, you won't regret it. We liked the ambience and the non-polished feel to it. Will definitely return when in Manchester again.

Having lived in China for 15 years it's always a treat to eat 'real Chinese' food rather than the Anglo-Chinese food in many places. I love both types but for authenticity Red Chilli hits the spot. Yes its a bit dingy - it's in a basement and yes the service was a bit haphazard but what counts for me is... More

Firstly telephoned to order my food so it would be ready for collection , whoever answers the phone did not have a clue ( not the first time) even though I read the description verbatim off their online menu . I finally got an understanding with them saying "oh the menu online is different to what we serve ".? Well... More

Bewildered by the recent gibes at the decor and the food. We originally tried Red Chilli on the basis of Jay Rayner's rave in the Observer, and we love it as much as he did. This time - tasty seafood hot and sour soup, crisp and flavoursome salt and chilli baby squid to start. Garlic salt soft shell crab along... More

Was almost shocked by the rudeness of the host as we waited to be seated - really not great to wave a general hand in the direction of the table while muttering "It's done" at a customer. Upon sitting down, we were handed 4 separate menus each, which was rather bewildering, and offered no welcome or help through the menu.... More
