This is my favourite of three or four Indian restaurants in this area. It wins out because it's the most consistent, with tasty food and efficient friendly service.

I have been there for dinner and the nice from this place was to be open 11:30pm. Is also possible to buy and bring home if they are closing. The price is okay but not cheap, but the food was very good and too much.

Red Chilli is set a short walk away from Brick Lane towards St Katherine's dock. The restaurant is more appealing than the cheap as chips approach on Brick Lane. The service was good and the food overall was good, apart from one dish that was a bit cold. We requested one dish of chip and chips for my daughter but... More

The food is really poor. I was recommended this by the hotel nearby. I ordered the butterfly prawns and there was just 1 prawns with a ton of terrible rapping. The tika masala is just tomato sauce. On top of my bad experience they charged me 10% of service charges which they inserted on the credit card machine as a... More

The exterior of this place looks unremarkable, however having eaten in pretty much every restaurant in the neighbourhood, I can vouch for this place bring one of the most reliable for a decent, well executed curry - an extensive menu including all your favourite Indian / Pakistani dishes well executed and served promptly and with a smile.

I have never had a good curry in London, so was really surprosed to find this wee gem next to my hotel. It was tastefully decorated and the service was excellent. I would come back like a shot if I am down this way again. Happy to recommend this to everyone!

Fantastic service from lovely staff, immaculate cosy restaurant. Food was out of this world and very reasonably priced. Recommended to us when staying in nearby hotel, even got a voucher for 10% off. Would definitely return

Loved the quality of our food very much. Portions were large, we ordered way too much. Waiter convinced us to order more and more. Good interior, quiet, most guests were elderly people. Good & alert service, very friendly. Fast & highly responsive. Not cheap, spent GBP 65 ( including tips) for 3 adults, only main courses & drinks & papadam... More

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
Whether you're here for its dynamic street life, world class galleries or famed curry houses, you're bound to be wowed by the uniquely cosmopolitan flavor of Whitechapel. Long gone are the days when Jack the Ripper stalked its streets. And despite his mysterious legacy bringing throngs of curiosity driven tour groups to its back alleys and otherwise serene garden squares, these days you're more likely to catch a cutting edge fashionista scurrying through its age old lanes than criminals of any sort.
