Description: Hall Green���s unusual Chilli and Spice brings together two very diverse worlds ��� the Indian restaurant and the British public house. The combination, of course, works well with the large Horseshoe pub giving over a section of its rather glamorously modern interior to the flavours of Asia. Stunningly appointed, Chilli and Spice feels like an elegant, sophisticated restaurant and appropriate for romantic dining as much as for a quick curry with friends. With a pedigree straight from five star hotels of India and Dubai, the Chilli and Spice kitchen knows its way around a spice rack, offering a wide selection of excellent Indian dishes freshly prepared using extremely good ingredients.

Although this restaurnat is a bit expensive you can either dine on the indian or european menu and both are great. Well worth a visit if you need somewhere with a lovely atmosphere and great food.

We were celebrating a 60th Birthday party in the private function room and the evening was perfect. The service of the staff was very polite, helpful & accommodating to all our needs. The quality of the food was superb. All our specific dietary needs were catered for without any issues.
The price was very reasonable and this is also reflected within the quality of the service and food.
The venue was very warm and comfortable and all the guests were happy with the venue, food & service.

dined at this restaurant last night for a meal with my friend, I have to say I was so disappointed Customer service was terrible, food was very bland and of poor quality and tasted more like a pre cooked Indian meal heated up and served( WARM)
I was really looking forward to my meal and drove quite far out was defiantly not worth it.

I complained to the waitress about how cold it was in the restraint and nothing was done so I had to eat my meal wearing my coat , the manager saw this but did nothing even the women’s toilet were warmer.

Overall review try somewhere on ladypool road or Stratford road as here you will just pay for the deco not for apna taste if you know what I mean.

We visited on Sunday evening on a Groupon deal. Food was well cooked but did not go together that well, my half a roast peri-peri chicken was a large chicken breast with excellent fries but a salad which was not the best in terms of presentation or taste/dressing. Starter and sweet were fine, the mushroom sauce with the starter and main was the same and all starters and mains could have been a little warmer in temperature. Manager was not congenial but waiting staff very attentive.

Myself and friend went there for the above meal .it was of a poor quality .the amouche bouch was a watery concoction of what looked like the remains of the curry pot when washing up then hot water added to it . Not a stew at all .it tasted awful .the main course which was either chicken curry or lamb shank was poor also the lamb shank was heavy and it felt like it had been warmed up and had been sitting ther for several hours then reheated and placed on mash and a gravy which had a somewhat poor taste of spices , not a good combination .when asked for the manager and asked him if the lamb shanks were brought in and not actually freshly cooked he said it was but coincidently had been there a few weeks before and had an English version of lamb shank and mash with normal gravy and tasted better . I do believe that the food is not cooked from fresh but brought in and reheated and certain parts were added to for example the gravy and sauces .my fiends chicken was bland and tasteless and had to be taken back to the kitchen and some chillies were added to it but the portion brought back was less than what was on the plate originally .i am sure if macro was served the food I had he would of being disappointed .the hand cut chip were ok but again when asked if they had hand cut them themselves the manager couldn't really answer and smirked but they were also brought in frozen then fried so again not fresh .which is what you would expect from such a quality place supposedly .i believe most of the food is brought in from external supplier and reheated and added with there own twist for example spices etc .overall dreadfully food on this occasion and what an insult to macro a true chef .the waitresses have poor communication skills and at times were unable to comprehend what was being asked of them .i have 20 years of working for restaurants so I feel I can comment on this experience .
