I've been here twice now and still get blown away by the menu choices available. If you love your Indian food as I do you cant help but find something to your liking. The menu is so extensive its taken me a while to decide...what to have But I've not been disappointed so far. The food is well presented arrives in a timely manner and is a complete fusion of flavours fragrances and tastes that simply don't disappoint and to boot the quantities are wholesome indeed. Sadly for me I only get to go here when visiting friends in the area - but I would highly recommend this as a "must try" venue if you get the chance to goMore

Once again I am from the South so I paid a visit to Sweet Chillies. This time I forsook the House Specials and settled for "on of the usual suspects": chicken pathia. Very good and it was a struggle to finish it all. Well done....Looking to my next visit.More

Food The options available are extensive and you literally can not go wrong- every single dish is delicious. The mixed grill in particular is incredibly well portioned, well seasoned and the sauces in amazing! My wife had the meat thaali and had an incredible coconut...chicken as well as other meat dishes. Value Simply put incredible value for the quality of food you receive Service Intentionally left this last as the level of service here is unmatched. Even Michelin star restaurants we’ve ate at haven’t matched the service given Rex’s and jay do everything in their gift to make your visit memorable and cater to every need. From engaging with the kids (making sure they finish their food) to ensuring you know exactly what’s in every dish and being able to offer changes where relevant. They were personable , polite and really gave a great experience!More

A good clue as to how good a restaurant is is by looking at its menu. That of Sweet Chillies must be the best that I have yet seen: multi-paged, excellent design, easy to read with a description of each dish on offer. The food...is pretty good as well! As I have said before: whenever I am up from the South you will always find me dining there.More
