This was our third visit to this restaurant, twice in October 2012 and this latest time in March 2013, we will certainly be coming again.
Service is excellent with the staff very attentive, when I accidentally dropped a knife a replacement was on the table before I could pick up the dropped item !!! Now that is good attentive service !!
Food is so good that we eat too much, but that is not the fault of the restaurant, that is our fault.
Variety is excellent and we are dying to go again to choose other delicacies on the menu. This time we both had the Waldoref salad as a starter and Moroccan lamb stew as a main meal with side additions of sweet potato chips and assorted mushrooms.

Chilli Vanilla is a small restaurant, it reminds me of some coffee shops and restaurants back in Cornwall where I'm from. The service is good (which is rare in KK) and the staff are obviously well trained. The owner has been working in the kitchen every time I have eaten there and that definitely comes through in the quality of the food and service. Prices are reasonable and the menu is varied enough that most people can find something they like.

Cakes are a must here, home made and delicious.

We had lunch and dinner at the same day - that speakes for itself. The food is excellent and the service very friendly. Our kids had frikadeller and enjoyed them - even thougt they were not the same as we know them from Denmark. Our daughter loved the potato salad. We properly will go there again.

Great place for tasty food and friendly service. Cakes esp good and the variety changes. Esp like the goulash, duck tortillas, chicken rouladde, red velvet cake, cheese cakes, and whenever available , the Nicoise salad and quiche. Enjoy the light wholemeal bread too.

I think this is one of the best restaurants in KK. It is also very affordable. It is very clean and well-run under the watchful eye of the proprietress. The menu is small, but varied and delicious. The desserts were wonderful - but so was everything else. We ate here several times. The serving staff were really attentive.
Highly recommended.
