Superb

This is real Indian (Kerelan) cuisine. Don't expect Onion Bhajis and Tikka Massala- All dishes are cooked to order and can take 40 minutes. Don't panic it's always worth the wait. The Pakoras and Kerla Fish curry are not to be missed.

Before talking about the restaurant be AWARE they add a 10% service charge to the bill. Did not see this advertised anywhere. I tip for good service and a decent meal but do not expect not to be given a choice. No one on Trip Adviser has mentioned this fact. Tipping in UK is a thing of the past.The meal... More

We visited here as it was highly recommended by people in Newbury. From the outside it doesn't look anything special and it is a little way from any of the other curry restaurants in Newbury as it is by the Railway Station. The service is good and the food is very tasty. We found the portions were a little too... More

Me and my partner recently moved to Newbury so we invited my parents up for dinner. My dad is a massive curry fan so we decided to visit Chilis. I must say I was quite hesitant to visit as I have recently been diagnosed with a dairy and a gluten allergy along with my mum who is also gluten free.... More

Bought a takeaway from here, not good. Surprised it's got the rating it has. What Indian doesn't serve onion bhaji's?! Not a great menu.

Went last weekend with a couple of friends for an early meal - food was delicious and service was friendly and efficient, although I can imagine they get very busy later on, as restaurant filled up quickly. Its nice to be asked the level of heat you want and I asked for Med/hot and thats what I got. Had a... More

We just passed by unexpected on our first day of our holidays in the UK. Had a very good meal with the delicious different flavored and spiced dishes. also well tasting Indian wine. Just like you would expect. Also very kind staff and atmosphere in this typical Indian family-run restaurant. If you ever come to Newbury, make sure you'll eat... More

Service was fairly good and large portions but very overpriced and poor quality food. The poppadoms were definitely out of a packet. In fact most of the food tasted like it was out of a packet especially the Aloo Palak. They wouldn't do anything off menu.

We had visited here before as this is one of my son's favorite restaurants and the food is outstanding. We organised a surprise even for 20 people which can be difficult when in a large group. Chilli's managed to co-ordinate everyone's food at the same time, they knew who had ordered what, each person had their correct order. I and... More

5 of us stopped off for an Indian meal after work at Chilis, (down by the train station), on the way to the cinema in Newbury. We've eaten here a couple of times, and they've recently changed the menu. I wasn't overly fussed by the new menu, and the choices offered (though this is subjective, and each one to their... More
