“Nicely modern restaurant with good quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Redditch town centre is not the nicest place and Rilys is in the middle of it with a bit of a tired air around it and the ugly civil building directly opposite. Once inside though you’ll find nicely modern design and a slick bar/waiting area. The layout and atmosphere was nice and the service was good from the arrival through to the delivery of food.

The menu has a lot of choice and everything was good, hot dishes were not overwhelming to the taste while creamy dishes were not too heavy. Prices were also good for what you got.

If you like Indian food then you’ll have lots of good quality choices here and be eating in a friendly and modern venue.

“Great service and ambience. Distinctly average food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

A very nice, modern restaurant which was immaculately clean. The service was friendly and efficient albeit a bit slow but they were very busy.
We both had the mixed chilli kebab starter which was very tasty and nicely presented. For the main course I went for the Rilys Special Mix and my wife had the Garlic Chilli Chicken. Both dishes were disappointing. I kept waiting for the taste to kick in but it never did. The same applied to my wife's main too.
We also had the garlic rice and the peshwari naan. These were nothing to write home about either.
It's a real shame because it's a lovely restaurant, but in the end it's the food that really counts.

“Best in town”

This is one of the best Indian restaurants around. The staff are pleasant and attentive. You'd do well to better this place.

“Contemporary Quality Indian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Helpful friendly staff, they were more than happy to guide me through the menu and make recommendations.

We had the mixed starter and at £9.95 for two you get chicken tikka, lamb tikka, shami kebeb and a onion bhaji, bit of a bargain !

For main I had Rangeela Khana;

Widely flavoured Goan dish with chicken and lamb tikka cooked
together using fresh spinach, smeared in a medium hot sauce using
fresh ginger to add an aromatic touch.

It was delicious ; - )
