We'd always thought this was Spanish or Mexican but discovered it was Indian (our favourite cuisine) and thought we'd give it a try. It's in a pleasant location, convenient access from A666. First impressions are positive, staff are friendly and efficient. We went on a Sunday with the special menu. The food was truly delicious, the portion sizes were more... More

We regularly visit Hot Chilli, and there's always a warm welcome. It's a fairly standard menu, with good food that is well cooked, albeit with rather unusual decor. Think huge red kitsch chandeliers. My choice is the lamb madras. My 6-year-old is a connoisseur of butter chicken and she says it's the best in the business!

We have used Hot Chilli regularly for almost 3 years, be it having a takeaway or eating in. The last time my fiancee & I visited was June 2016. The restaurant was quite empty, due to The Euro's & being rather early in the evening, but we didn't care, more space for us! :) The food is always of the... More

The staff and management are all very welcoming and friendly and always have a chat with me while I wait to collect. personal favourite is the Taste of Biswanth and a Hot... More
