Although the staff were friendly, we found the food to be very expensive, with odd flavours. The rice was grey, the tarka dhall was very salty with a bitter taste; the stuffed baby aubergine tasted very artificial and the hydrabadi chicken was not the best...More

Family and friends enjoyed a really nice meal on a Saturday night, the menu and food was a bit different and really taste. The cost reasonable, the only down side was the service which was a bit slow.

This is the first time I've felt compelled to review on trip advisor following a delivery order we placed for the first time with chaula's. We regularly eat from various Indian restaurants and takeaways in Brighton but this meal was really inedible. Over salted, yet...More

I visited with my family and we had the thali groupon deal at lunch time. There was plenty of food and we left full. Very tasty and would return and be happy to pay the prices for a lunch or evening meal. Friendly service.

THE ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE IN TRADITIONAL HOME COOKED GUJARATI AND OTHER INDIAN REGIONAL FOOD. We began selling our home cooked food from our grocery shop in Lewes. The reaction was so positive that it inspired us to sell fresh, as well as frozen food throughout shops in Sussex and Surrey. We expanded the business and moved to Station Street in Lewes. Further success inspired us to open CHAULA'S INDIAN RESTAURANT IN LEWES 2007 AND IN BRIGHTON 2012. We believe that Indian cuisine is a combination of subtle taste. Flavours are as varied as the climate and exotic as the people of India. The appreciation of spices and combination is an acquired art and can only be achieved after many, many years of studied blending, cooking and tasting. At Chaula's, value our patron's opinions and concerns in the modern day world of health consciousness- our scrumptious food is prepared only with Sunflower Oil that is low cholesterol and freshly ground spices, without the use of artificial flavours and colourings. WE ONLY USE FRESH CHICKEN AND MEAT. I have worked very hard to perfect this fine art without compromising on taste and authenticity. We are confident that after sampling our culinary delights you would agree that there is nothing but the best at Chaula's. We take pride in welcoming you again and again. WE ARE RENOWNED FOR OUR SIGNATURE DISHES. "THE FOOD OF INDIA, NOT JUST INDIAN FOOD" We hope you enjoy the experience. -CHAULA & JANAK
