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.

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.

I went to this place with my friend and we both took the kari. It was so good that we came here 3 more times. The food is unbelievable and the owners are wonderful people (free beer for finishing the plate! Awesome!) If you are in huaraz and you like spicy food, this place is a must. It truly is... More

I have gone to Chili Heaven for the past 6 years and it is not only consistently delicious no matter what you order, but it is perhaps one of the best restaurants for Indian, Thai, and Mexican dishes I have ever been to in the world (no, really!). I spend a few months each year working 3 hours away from... More
