“Meal”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We booked as hotel had recommended as we did not know the area. It statred well the shish kebab and poppadums were good, nice selection of chutneys. Then the main course arrived I ordered a prawn karai, I was a little anxious when the waited asked if I wanted a Madras or Jalfrezi strengh, as they are not the same dish. When our meal arrived the prawns were over cooked and all it tasted of was curry powder, my rice in particular was so over done it had gone into clumps, my husband's meal was not mych better. When I complained they did quickly replace my meal and gave me a complimentary glass of wine. But in all honesty the replacement chicken meal was not much of an improvement and the rice was dreadful, Amemeber of staff did enquire what was the matter and apologised which was good, but I certainly would not return there, as it has received good reviews perhaps we were just unlucky.

“JUST VERY BAD”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Food was just regular.
The staff without asking or informing us gave us a completely different type of wine than we ordered and insisted it was the Indian equivalent,this happened twice.They then admitted they didn't have the bottle we asked for in the first place.
I also was not convinced by the hygiene in the place.
Not very welcoming either.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We have been going to the Chilli Lounge since it opened around 5 years ago. The food for the most part has been of an excellent standard, the staff are so friendly, helpful and efficient and the atmosphere is always buzzing. We visited again on 12th August and although the restaurant was quiet (being a Monday) the food was exceptionally good and the staff had more time to chat which made the evening especially pleasant. The restaurant has had a make-over and even though we thought it was nice before, it is lovely now!! The lighting has been dimmed a little (not too much), there are nice booths for a more intimate meal and the waiting area has been converted to provide extra tables (which are needed, especially at the week-end as the restaurant gets so busy). The chandelier (which was the main feature in the larger restaurant area has been moved near to the windows and has made such a difference to the ambience). We enjoyed our meal so much and even commented to Ansar and his staff that it was the best meal ever!! Although we have tried several dishes, we tend to choose the balti dishes as they are exquisite having excellent flavours, the portions are very generous and the side dishes always cooked and presented to the highest standard. We have tried several of the rice side dishes (mushroom, lemon pilau etc, which are all really nice) but on this occasion we decided on the egg rice. What can we say, we are SOLD and will always order the egg rice in future. We tend to visit regularly anyway, but will probably make it a monthly occasion from now on. Well done everyone at Chilli Lounge, see you again soon.

“Excellent Indian restaurant”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The usual Yorkshire hospitality was backed up by a large menu and delicious food with generous portions.

For such a large restaurant the service was very good and the chicken chilli masala and chicken jalfrazi are recommended.

“Top food and service”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The food here is most delicious you can taste all the herbs and spices. Portion sizes are very good as is the house wine. The staff are friendly and not over baring. Will be my first choice for excellent Indian food in Huddersfield !
