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.

Layers & layers of flavours. Lunch King Thali's are amazing. Have never had a bad meal here, or even a mediocre one. Not your average Indian.

Excellent food here and a very different way of eating curry but in a good way. Was nice to see them cook stuff in front of you, very clean and staff very welcoming.

When this restaurant opened, it was small, intimate, colourful, in a characterful part of Brighton - and difficult to get a table! It has moved to a fairly featureless area, quadrupled its size so getting a table isn't so fraught, but in doing so, for me, has lost a fair bit of its allure. It is slightly canteen-like, and so can be noisy, and although the food remains several cuts above other similar establishments, the menu seems to have become slightly less expansive.
That said, I shall certainly keep returning as the food is undeniably delicious and well-priced. Look forward to trying the take-away service.
