A popular place

We ate here tonight and arrived about 5.45 pm. We had the best choice of tables but by the time we left the place was packed and the takeaway business was brisk too. The food was the reason for this popularity!

Amazing food, the best chicken satay I've eaten. The location is wonderful and staff friendly but it's the food that's a stand out.

The entrées all seemed like pre-packed frozen options and were a bit soggy, but edible. The mains were lovely. Creamy sauces which were quite sweet, good size serves with plenty sauce and crisp veg. Will definitely eat here again.

Yum! We went here for a girls night and had delicious food! I had the satay beef and it was time! Pricing is reasonable. Service also reasonable (young girls, but they weren't bad. Just a bit annoying that you could hear them chatting and laughing just near us). I'd come back. :)

Found this little place after coming out of the surf club which was packed and too crowded. Staff were very friendly and the beef massaman was good although I should of asked for a bit more chilli in it ( personal preference ). Good casual place

This is a really tasty eating experience in a curbside setting. Reservations are essential. We find it great to eat early and follow it with a beach walk and a local gelati.

Late evening (for Coolum that is). Found this restaurant, on the sea front, indoor and out door tables. Was about to close, however we were warmly greeted, seated and offered the menus. We were not rushed, service was impeccable. We had an entree of salt and pepper calamari. Tender, moist and tasty. The mains were stir fried ginger veggies with... More

The Hot Chilli Bean has got it all. You can pick up a take away on your way home from the beach or stop, kick back and enjoy the great food and friendly service. If you like your curry hot just ask Pat to pump up the chilli and challenge yourself!!
