Description: Having worked abroad for several years, husband & wife team Alun and Dawn Sperring returned to Brighton to find it in the grip of an enthusiasm for Indian food. They found the perfect spot in the cobbled lanes amongst the jewellery and antique shops of Meeting House Lane. The Chilli Pickle gradually but inexorably gained its reputation through word of mouth. As guests returned again and again, we knew that Brighton was ready for an authentic but distinctive experience of Indian cuisine. We gathered together an expert team of chefs with specialisms in a variety of Indian regional cuisines, and our own style became increasingly defined. After two and a half years at Meeting House Lane an unmissable opportunity came our way: a move underneath My Hotel. We're now an established presence on the Brighton culinary trail, but we haven't lost the drive to surprise you with new flavours, this year is our 10 year anniversary! we are very proud of what we have achieved.

We had lunch and the the food was lovely and plentiful for the price. The staff were attentive sometimes overly but overall a great balance. I had the curried Mutton and the staff explained everything on the plate which was really useful.

Defiantly a brilliant place to go to eat and the most authentic Indian I've had in ages.

The family were just sitting down at the restaurant and my wife raised the thorny subject why are we eating Indian cuisine when you refuse to eat Indian takeaways. Well that is the whole point, this is fine dining Indian food freshly prepared and with a great range of food.The atmoshere was good, it is marvellous to see a restaurant nearly full on a wednesday night. Service was attentive without being pushy and we had a great evening.

Well worth trying in small or large groups.

We tried the Chilli Pickle on the recommendation of a friend. Despite being a cold February Tuesday evening the restaurant was packed with a good atmosphere - so you need to book. The food offered a diverse selection with unusual combinations that we have not previously encountered at other Indian restaurants. Despite more than adequate portions for starters and mains my wife and I decided to finish the meal with the Ice Cream – excellent quality but it defeated us both.
Both the quality and quantity of the food was excellent as was the service. Will definitely visit again the next time we are staying in Brighton.

Forget your bulk standard chicken tikka masala - this is curry as you've probably never experienced it before. Take a culinary journey - innovative indian dishes washed down with some excellent wine/beer. Can't recommend highly enough !!
