“Delicious food and excellent service ...”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

This was our first visit to the Chilli Bar to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary, although we have eaten at the Chilli Raj restaurant before. The food, drinks and service was excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive, but not over-bearing, and made us feel very welcome. Excellent value for money and would highly recommend it. Can't wait to go again :-)

“Very friendly and good venue”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

This is the fourth time we have been to the chilli bar. Every time we have had an excellent time and meal. Recommend the chilli paneer for veggies. And the chicken madras.

“Absolutely delightful”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I loved this restaurant and can highly recommend it. The food is excellent! It sounds ridiculous, but the sparkling water is perhaps the best I've ever had. It feels like they have invested their time to source excellent quality food and drinks.
The decor feels fresh and clean. It sets a lovely tone and atmosphere. The service is caring and attentive but they did not hover or rush us. It just felt very relaxing.

“More lively atmosphere than Chilli Raj”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We went here last night as a group of four as frequent diners at Chilli Raj to try somewhere different but somewhere we knew was still going to have amazing food (owned by the same people as Chilli Bar).

We were not disappointed. Staff were friendly and quick to show us to our table and get drinks and popadoms arrived in about a minute. The staff were very professional. We did not wait very long for our food at all, which was delicious when it arrived. I loved my usual dish (chicken madras and pilau rice). You could taste the difference from Chilli Raj's chicken madras but both I think were really tasty.

The difference between Chilli Raj and Chilli Bar is obviously the size and Chilli Bar is in the heart of St Albans town. People come in for drinks to Chilli Bar and there were large parties of people which we enjoyed the atmosphere, whereas Chilli Raj is a lot more quiet and chilled out, though we like this too.

Price wise, not bad at all! We split the bill which was around £17 each. We all had rice and a main, and two of us had a naan and a starter each.

We would definitely come here again!

“Great new Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 via mobile

Visited this place for a quick dinner with my husband and 9 year old daughter. The staff were friendly and chatted to my daughter especially when she proclaimed their korma 'better than mummy's'! Apparently I must try harder!

Food was delicious

Atmosphere and decor were lovely!

We've found a new favourite!!
