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

I visited Red Chilli when on a business trip and found the recommended Indian down the road ridiculously expensive. I highly enjoyed the food, having one of the chef specials and all food is priced at a standard cost for an indian restaurant in the south, but even better for London. My only negative is that I asked the bill... More

Good, tasty and hot as it should. Excellent. Just a draft beer would have been appreciated, but it us really a detail. Not the cheapest, but I will be back for sure!

I can't believe we have walked past this place tens of times and not been in! Food was fantastic and good service. Husband asked for green chilli hot style dish and they sure delivered! We will be back.

Well my wife is not a curry fan so took her to my London hangout with a bit of trepidation. However they gave her a mild curry which she enjoyed and as usual enjoyed my curry. For those who know me, yes I did visit the Brown Bear too.

Staying in Whitechapel

Neighborhood Profile
Whitechapel
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.
