Sharing the love at The Chilli Pickle...
9/10
I love eating out, and I love eating out with friends. I’m a sharer – the type that will insist on you trying my dish and expecting the same in return (whether you like it or not). Why have one meal when you can try two (or three, or four?!) The concept of a banquet menu, designed to be enjoyed by a group, is therefore as up my street as you can get, and so it was that three friends and I found ourselves at The Chilli Pickle one Monday evening. The restaurant was surprisingly busy and buzzing for an August Monday evening, with the majority of tables taken. The brightly coloured interior, spacious layout and modern lighting set the scene for a warm welcome. First up, the drinks. I opted for a Gulab lassi, a traditional yogurt drink with pistachio and flavoured with rose syrup. Never fear – it doesn’t taste as pink as it looks, and the combination of nutty flavour, sweet rose and cool yogurt slipped down a treat on a warm evening. My friends opted for a pomegranate caipirinha and beers. Fun fact – did you know Cobra beer was actually invented in Fulham by two British Asian guys? Every day’s a school day… Our meal started fairly traditionally with a selection of poppadoms and chutneys. This was quickly followed by a range of beautifully presented starters. We were a mixed veggie and meat-eating group, so had chosen one vegetarian banquet and one meat version to share. In practice, this meant eating a fair amount of the same dishes, with lots of opportunities to share. Sharing with my foodie friends, one of whom grew up in Hyderabad, also meant an insight to the background and unique mix of dishes from across the region that the menu presented us with...

This was our wedding dinner, and we chose the Chilli Pickle because it always lives up to (very high) expectations. It finished off our day perfectly.

Very friendly and warm atmosphere. Had an amazing birthday meal with my girlfriend. Service was quick, attentive and informative on any of the dishes we asked about. Some of the best curry I've ever had, very well spiced and flavours keep hitting you even when you've finished eating! Would highly recommend the starters as they are light, fresh and tasty but don't fill you up too much before the main. Would love to go again an try the entire menu!

Will never stop visiting my favourite restaurant. The whole experience is excellent and a real credit to the owners. In my mind this is Brightons jewel in the Crown! Who needs Michelin stars...the Chilli Pickle is in a class of its own.

Always let down by service when busy fri/sat night, forgetting drinks & getting order wrong for main course & dessert. Food always excellent as always, we eat regularly at lunch time in the week & tend to avoid weekends.

Was a little disappointed. Haven't been for a few years, menu choice seems very limited now and seems to lack flair it once had

I've been going to Chilli since it first opened in 'The Lanes' in central Brighton and last went in September 2014. I have noticed this time that the menu options have not been as interesting or exotic as they used to be with ingredients such as oxtail madras, Goan fish curry etc. Chilli seems to have moved toward the more standard fare of chicken, pork etc. As a dessert fan, I was very disappointed to find that the lovely huge gulab jamons served with cardamon ice cream has been replaced with a lolly (I'm an adult!) and 3 tiny weeny little gulab jamons. I do feel the Chilli experience is not the same

As ever it was a wonderful meal, however it was very hot in the restaurant which became uncomfortable after a while.
