Went there for a dinner with business colleagues. The food was well cooked and well presented but the dishes were relatively small if you are particularly hungry. Found the menu pretty limited in terms of content and size. but no complaints about food quality. Quite keen to get you out of the place when you have finished your meal!!!

Decided to come here as I had heard many good things. We had a lovely waitress who couldn't do enough for us. - very helpful as we couldn't understand the menu very well and let us taste different things before buying the full dish and explained everything fully. I decided to have chicken curry with all the extras. Delicious naan,... More

Visited this restaurant on a recommendation from Friends who live in the area. It's like no other curry house, we've been to before. Fabulously decorated and clean restaurant. Staff very friendly and although it was a busy evening with customers. The service was very good. We had poppadums and chutney's as starters and for main course we both had Tandoori... More

We both had indian platter from lunch menu and it was one of the best meals i've ever had. Too bad I couldn't eat it all as it was too much for me. The... More

Dinner with the masses. Too !Any diners for my liking. Slow service and food that was a bit of a rip off. Basically a thick round Nan bread a small bowl of a Chilli like sauce and a bowl of indifferent curry. Not for me. I'll go elsewhere for an authentic meal.

We arrived about 6.30 on a Monday and staff fitted us in as they were fully booked later. And they were and for a good reason! Service was good and the food excellent - reminded me of Masala Zone in London. We had a thali each - Nepalese chicken and chicken karahi. Should mention the cocktails too as they went... More

Went there for lunch having heard a lot of good things about it and I wasn't disappointed. The menu had a wide selection and our food was very good. Service was a bit slow as we seemed to be between shifts. Good value.

I love lunches at the Chilli Pickle, with the thali options you get to try a fabulous selection of things and don't have to restrict yourself to one choice. The tandoori chicken and chilli chips is pretty special too.

Description
8 Years ago when Dawn and I were working in Dubai and she was expecting Stanley, we decided it was time to settle down and shed the expat lifestyle. After working as a chef for over a period of 20 years overseas, gaining experience and knowledge in a range of eclectic cuisines in world class hotels and restaurants with the latter years spent leading kitchen brigades, I felt it was time to "go it alone". Having both traveled to India on numerous occasions with a shared passion for it's food and culture as well as an inspirational stint at 'The Cinnamon Club' and there being a big Indian influence in the kitchens in Dubai which I also embraced, the decision for our future restaurant to be Indian felt very natural to us both and so The Chilli Pickle was born. The last time I worked in Brighton 28 years ago was as a silver service banquet waiter at the Metropole Hotel whilst studying catering at Brighton Tech (now City College). Dawn has always loved Brighton from regular visits whilst living in London and I've always had a soft spot for Brighton and the fact we were doing something quite different we knew it was the perfect place to start. After searching for the right property for nearly a year we found a spot in the cobbled lanes amongst the jewellery and antique shops in Meeting House Lane. The space was perfect. 50 Covers with a real bistro feel to it and a functional but small kitchen space. With an initial slow start The Chilli Pickle gradually grew through word of mouth and the support of our now regular clientele. As we got busier and gained feedback from diners we knew we were on the right track and so our confidence grew and our style became more clearly defined. After two and a half years at Meeting House Lane an opportunity came our way that we felt we could not refuse... A move to the restaurant space at myhotel Brighton. We knew this was a big step for us, but believed we had something special in The Chilli Pickle and had the passion and drive to continue to make this work along with the constant support of our original core team as well as some new additions. After 4 years in our new venue we have gone from strength to strength. The restaurant has grown in reputation nationally as well as locally with numerous awards and most importantly we continue to welcome our regulars back and enjoy meeting new customers. We also provide The Chilli Pickle Canteen - a delivery service offering a unique experience of in-home Indian dining. Bespoke boxed Grand Thalis, Railways Trays & Biryani Sets all inspired by our travels to India. We are very proud of what we have achieved and are excited about the future. We will retain our standards all the way with attention to detail, consistency and a love for what we do. Alun Sperring Chef/Director
