Description: Hall Green���s unusual Chilli and Spice brings together two very diverse worlds ��� the Indian restaurant and the British public house. The combination, of course, works well with the large Horseshoe pub giving over a section of its rather glamorously modern interior to the flavours of Asia. Stunningly appointed, Chilli and Spice feels like an elegant, sophisticated restaurant and appropriate for romantic dining as much as for a quick curry with friends. With a pedigree straight from five star hotels of India and Dubai, the Chilli and Spice kitchen knows its way around a spice rack, offering a wide selection of excellent Indian dishes freshly prepared using extremely good ingredients.

“Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We arrived for a late Sunday lunch (2pm) and were rather concerned to find the place almost empty. It soon became apparent that this place is busy from 3pm onwards on a Sunday and our fears were ill founded. The waitress was very polite and attentive but not overbearing.

We went for the Sunday lunch menu, I had 2 courses and my partner had 3 courses. The main course was excellent with lots of tender meat and vegetables. Our only complaints which let it down, were the plates were not warmed and we were not offered sauces until we were half way through the main course.

We will be back for Sunday lunch againand we also plan to try out the Indian menu one evening.

“Brilliant dining experience”

Although this restaurnat is a bit expensive you can either dine on the indian or european menu and both are great. Well worth a visit if you need somewhere with a lovely atmosphere and great food.

“Good times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We were celebrating a 60th Birthday party in the private function room and the evening was perfect. The service of the staff was very polite, helpful & accommodating to all our needs. The quality of the food was superb. All our specific dietary needs were catered for without any issues.
The price was very reasonable and this is also reflected within the quality of the service and food.
The venue was very warm and comfortable and all the guests were happy with the venue, food & service.

“Over rated”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

dined at this restaurant last night for a meal with my friend, I have to say I was so disappointed Customer service was terrible, food was very bland and of poor quality and tasted more like a pre cooked Indian meal heated up and served( WARM)
I was really looking forward to my meal and drove quite far out was defiantly not worth it.

I complained to the waitress about how cold it was in the restraint and nothing was done so I had to eat my meal wearing my coat , the manager saw this but did nothing even the women’s toilet were warmer.

Overall review try somewhere on ladypool road or Stratford road as here you will just pay for the deco not for apna taste if you know what I mean.

“Unusual flavour combinations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

We visited on Sunday evening on a Groupon deal. Food was well cooked but did not go together that well, my half a roast peri-peri chicken was a large chicken breast with excellent fries but a salad which was not the best in terms of presentation or taste/dressing. Starter and sweet were fine, the mushroom sauce with the starter and main was the same and all starters and mains could have been a little warmer in temperature. Manager was not congenial but waiting staff very attentive.
