This little local restaurant is a "must" if you like spicy food. We recently had lunch here after returning several times when we are in the area. The space is small with maybe six tables and a counter with some stools. Very noisy when crowded but worth it !My selection came out in a hot cast iron bowl set in... More

Food was attractively presented, and very tasty. Come hungry or be prepared to take some excellent food home!

Tried this place based on positive reviews here on TA. The picture is not of the restaurant. It is located in downtown Elizabethton in what was most likely a clothing shop at one time. The place is TINY. Maybe room for 20 or so diners. Menu is different, but lots to choose from. I had the spicy noodle soup -... More

We love the Red Chili, and who would think you'd find such an awesome Korean restaurant in downtown Elizabethton. My husband and I had one of our first dates there, and we come back whenever we happen to be in Elizabethton. The food is excellent, and my favorite is the bi bim bob. I usually burn my mouth because I... More

Make no mistake, this is first-class, mouth-watering, sinus-clearing Korean fare that you will long remember. Two of us shared tasty appetizers like natural spring rolls, and even the extra-delicious seaweed and mushroom soup. Our pork,kim-chee, and rice entrees were both delicious and in large enough portions that we took about two more meals worth home. You can get it as... More

Food is a work of art! Took my daughter there for her birthday. They made her a special hand roll with spicy tuna. Food was above average. Try the Blue Chicken platter or Teri-Chicken Soba noodles!!

It is not very often I truly love the meal when eating out. Blown away by the freshness and quality. It's a hidden gem. Only wish I had found this place sooner. Not for everyone but wonderful bliss to me

Ok, what bugs me about this restaurant is that she keeps changing the menu. They used to have this fantastic soup called Pacific Soup with all kinds of seafood in it and a great fish broth. Then she took out some of the seafood and added tofu. Tofu!!! Ick!!! And some of the food is quite expensive for what you... More
