“Unhelpful staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Not very pleased with the staff, a little ignorant. Not very welcoming - this is the first time we visited the red chilli, and we probably wont be going back again unfortunately.

“Awful!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We live in Ashbourne and we have visited this restaurant twice and both times have been awful! From the cold arrogant service to the tasteless food! We adore Indian food and both meals were such a let down! The tandoori was so dry the nan bread was thick and so bland! The rice was greasy and the attitude of the waiters was worst than the food! They smelt of cigarettes they were so rude to us but we gave it a second chance as we adore Indian food! We shall never go back! Overpriced and bland food with terrible service! Such a shame!!.

“It's how it should be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

First time visit and really pleased , very good polite service . Good quality food , though the salmon dish we had was quite oily . This didn't detract from the taste at all as it was full of flavour ,
Open dining area wasn't too bad although there were some undesirable loud people on a near table who had a bit too much to drink , but that wasn't the restaurants fault . Overall a pleasant experience and we would definitely go again and recommend red chill .

“TOP NOTCH FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This place looks nothing from the outside but please do go in because the food is absolutely gorgeous. The staff are friendly and helpful and the service was very, very good. Plenty of time (but not waiting ages) between courses to digest your food, which is something that is very important to me.

I can highly recommend King Prawn on Puri starter and Murghi Mesamom for main....absolutely beautiful and spiced to perfection.

The food, service and dining experience are are all second to none.
