“Great Chinese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

We've been a few times to the Red Chilli and although it's a large restaurant (which feels a little impersonal), the food is delicious and excellent value for money.

My advice is to stray from the more Anglo-Chinese dishes and go for something more authentic as this menu has a lot of choice.

“Great Food and Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Don't be put off by the exterior of this restuarant - completely different when lit up in the evening and once you're inside! Couldn't book in advance as told tables for couples are only on a 'first come, first served' basis but decided to take the chance. Restaurant was packed but only took about 15 minutes to be seated.

Food choice is vast - some very strange choices (eg sliced pig's head and fried pig's intestines!!), however, the usual dishes too. Staff were excellent and very friendly - service equally so without being intrusive. As per previous reviews, portions are huge, we had sizzling fillet and lightly coated chicken with their special fried rice and everything was superb - may even equal the best Chinese we've had (Pavillion nr Durham). Will definitely visit again next time we're in York.

“Enough to feed an army”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

There were only 2 of us, but we should have invited another 6 people! Amazing that the standard of food can be so high, even when dishing up enormous portions. It was a tasty, authentic-flavoured meal, enormous menu with a great choice of dishes,good service by rather 'stern-looking waiters dressed in black with the headsets on! Extremely efficiently-run business & the proof of how good it was.....most of the customers were Chinese.
Give it a shot....go steady on those Chilli dishes!!!
