“good experience at chilli lodge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

chilli lodge is situated somewhat unusually in an equestrian centre about half a mile outside the village of Silkstone Common on the road to Penistone. It is set some distance from the road and is easily missed, you need to look for the A board on the road side. There is extensive on site parking and nice views from the picture windows in the summer. The restaurant has about 40 covers and is well decorated, if a little stark. The welcome was warm and friendly.
Now the most important bit the food, chilli lodge faces plenty of competition in Barnsley where every second restaurant seems to offer asian cuisine but the menu is varied with some unusual dishes from Kashmir and Bangladesh as well as well as the usual favourites charges are reasonable and we had a very enjoyable meal. Highly recommended

“Excellent Indian food, in nice surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

We had a Friday evening meal with relatives. There were 10 of us, 5 adults, and 5 kids. We had 10 poppadoms, drinks (two each), main meals with rice or naan bread, and a few puddings. One of the children ordered Chips and chicken nuggets, the rest of us had Indian food.

The bill was £129, averaging out at about £10 for food and £5 for drinks, which I thought was good value, all in all.

The food was excellent, but the service was a tad slow. We did have to summon the waiters over for drinks etc, hence the 4 stars, (not five). But this is a minor gripe, and on the whole I old happily recommend Chilli Lodge again.

I would recommend, booking at weekends

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Had a take away Thursday 18th October

Nothing special but this may be because they are geared up for buffet night

Well appointed restaurant, may well make the effort to visit for a sit down meal

“We eat here twice in September!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We love it here the service is nice and friendly, The food is amazing and very filling on Thursday night as its buffet night. Not your typical Indian buffet though the food quality is fantastic. Even my fussy 14 yr old daughter loves it here!
