Description: Whether you send your appetite to India or Thailand, the fiery curries at this English-run hotspot will seize your taste buds upon arrival, mercilessly shake them up and then spit them back out the other side as if you've died and gone to chili heaven (hence the name). They also bottle their own hot sauces here and bring in loads of English beers you don't often see. Critical comida peruana antidote.

awesome curries, nice atmosphere, the people attending you know they are talking about and advise you on your preferences. A must-visit if you are into curries (besides the local brew beer :-) )

If you are English and craving a decent Indian go here. We went back again! Indian curries are spot on , especially with the Sierra Andino beers. You can eat for cheaper in Huaraz but why bother... this place will leave you satisfied :-)

My boyfriend and I ate there during our stay in Huaraz. The place is small, but full of people all the time. They have 4 levels if spiciness: not spicy, fairly hot, very hot and the challenge. The veggie food is good as well. Nice place in total.

Great restaurant with great vegitarian options. Especially the fajitas and burito impressed me. The owner Beatriz is very nice and added to a nice evening!

Nice and cozy atmosphere, excellent service and food. It serves the best fajitas ever! You can find very hot and spicy options as well as mild and fairly hot ones. 100% recommended, I went twice during a three day trip. It has the local touch and friendliness mixed with the Indian, Mex and Thai spots. Can´t miss it!!

Beatriz is amazing. We had 21 people and the staff provided awesome service. Beatriz got the orders right the fajitas were awesome. I shared it with another friend and we were satisfied. She provided pisco shots which really got us going. Make sure to visit the place.

If you have even just 2 hours in Huaraz, go to Chilli Heaven. The curries are incredible, with several varieties: Thai, Cashew, Indian, etc. The fajitas are the best I've had. The place itself is warm and cozy, with walls covered in maps and travel photos. Both owners, a surly British man and his ex-wife (?), are great folks to... More

If you are missing an Indian or a Thai Curry, Chilli Heaven will be your place. Small and cosy place, specialized in Hot Stuff, offers very good Indian and Thai Food. I tried a yellow curry that was over my expectations considering the fact it is prepared in Huaraz with not that many of the original ingredients available. Another day... More

This was one of the only good curries I've had in South America. The madras had a great amount of spice and a complex flavour. The vegetarian/ meat fahitas were also great - served with everything you'd want and lots of tasty veg. Huge portions and decent value at S23 for the curry and S22 for the fahitas.
