Phenomenal Indian food. We were staying at The Langstone Hayling Island and got a taxi into Havant as fancied an Indian meal. Absolutely was not disappointed. Really attentive waiters really lovely food, quiet lovely dining. We both had the spicy nutty duck starter...wow ! Incredible...taste. Never seen this on a menu before. Spicy and flavoursome. I had garlic chili chicken for main, really decent size chunks of chicken. My husband had tikka massala which he said was delicious. Not often we're in this neck of the woods but will happily return if we find ourselves in the vicinity.More

Just wanted a quick take-away following an afternoon party, and the food in my hotel is very disappointing. Can't mention the hotel, so please bear with me..... Had a Manchurian lamb and a naan, and they added a poppadum and even gave me some cutlery....Food was delicious, though maybe the lamb could have been less chewy, hence 4/5. Naan was one of the best I've had in a while.More

Being new in town, this place has quickly become our favourite restaurant. Not only is the food excellent but the atmosphere is very chilled out and the service is excellent. The staff are always very accommodating even if you haven’t pre booked.

I have been going in here since it opened, the original staff were more like friends and they made us feel like more than just customers. Our visit last week just did not feel the same, and I am sure (in my own mind) that...they have changed ownership and chef. The food was just not the same, the staff were just not the same. You stull get a warm friendly welcome, but it feels like I am a new customer now, and not someone that has been going there for years. The food tastes and looks different. My main course was so instantly forgettable, I forgot to take a picture. My wife complained about her dish, and we were told it would be taken off the bill, when the bill came, all that had been taken off was the value of the discount voucher we had. We were given another discount voucher, for use with a future visit, but because it just does not feel the same, I am unsure if I want to go back. Shame really, it used to be so good.More

Very disappointed with our takeaway meal. All the food was cold and tasteless, chicken biryani had very little chicken, chicken tikka, veg curry, sag aloo. Nothing positive to say, will never order from there again.

Had take away delivered. Very average dish and cold when it arrived an hour after ordering. The sag aloo had onions in it which we not expecting. On the good side plenty of pickles were included and the price was reasonable.

What can i say. It was just after six and the two of us walked in and asked for a table. Big place , ex pub. No one in apart from two staff. We were directed to a two table and we asked if we...could sit at a four table as there was no one in there. No, was the reply, All booked. In a sturt way. We declined and went to Havant Tandoori instead for a lovely meal before we went to The Spring. Out of curiousity, we walked past just over three hours later to give them the benefit of the doubt. One table in there . Now either everyone dined quickly and the restaurant was cleared up quickly or the staff need to stop telling porkies and do their jobs. We wont return after seeing this, we really wanted to be proved wrong but to be honest as ecpected we wernt.More

Having previously visited many time and enjoyed great food and service, we were very disappointed with our latest visit. Waited over an hour and a half for our food, when it arrived the rice was over cooked and several of the dished were cold. No...heated stands were provided to keep the food that was warm hot and several dishes had large chips in their edges. No apology offered by the staff for the delay, will not be visiting again.More

Great food and service! We had less than 1 hour (train to catch), the waiter Ronnie (I think) was very knowledgeable and suggested starters and mains that could be prepared on time. We saw they were busy with other orders but we were well cared...for. Prawns and lamb was amazing! We went with his desert surprise which was packed in a little thermo-bag since we had to leave. Needles to say they too were delicious, perfect for the hot summer. Thank you to the whole staff and complements to the chef!More

The trouble with writing a review is that it is your personal, subjective opinion, and after reading some other reviews about the Red Chilli, wondered if I was in the same place. We ate in on this occasion, as we had just come back from...a day out in London. We have been frequenting this establishment, pretty much since it opened. We order takeaways direct from them for delivery and always get great service. Food arrives hot and fresh. As to not getting what you "assume", check the description. I will not say it has been perfect 100% of the time, but I will say, that on the couple of times I have complained, I had the manager call me to apologise and sort things out for us. So, the Red Chilli we were in (the old Perseverance pub), we got a warm and friendly welcome, treated like friends rather than just customers. Food and drink orders taken, poppadums and chutneys on the table, and nice, cold Bangla beer (goes so well with curry). I like the onion bhaji here, crisp, light, very flavourful, and I always ask if I can keep the chutneys from the poppadoms, as I like to add some mint sauce to the salad. My main of Chicken Pathia and Pilau rice was as expected, great taste, nice sized portion, well spiced. Add another beer and I was feeling good. I can honestly say that I really enjoy both the sit in and take out food from her, and if you bypass the "specialist" delivery drivers, who I usually see standing around with a bag of food for delivery, chatting away, and order direct from them, you will get your food as it should be. I will keep going back, as in my view, they serve great food, well presented, and are some of the friendliest people I know.More

Don’t know what has gone wrong here. Use this take away many times before but the tandoori chicken they served me was utterly disgusting and has put me off eating tandoori chicken. Actually made me fell sick. It was soggy and didn’t appear to have...been anywhere near a tandoori oven. Perhaps it had been kept hot for ages. Anyway, it completely ruined the meal. I ordered half a tandoori chicken but got two legs. Won’t be going back. Just hope I’m not I’ll. Very disappointed and just not acceptable.More
