We are on holidays from Australia. WeWe have dined in lots of Indian restaurants. I don't know how authentic Indian cuisine is supposed to taste, (because we've only had it in Australia), but in my experience, although I like Indian food, it is always quite heavy and and stodgy (for want of a better description). This food was light and fresh tasting. The egg rice was light and delightful, as was the naan bread. I cannot emphasise how light and fresh it all was. We loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful. We'd had a few drinks and they arranged to have us driven back to or hotel. Great restaurant. Highly recommended.

Lots of friends have been here and recommended it so we headed over there.

It was a bit quiet but it was a Wednesday night. The staff are really friendly and make you welcome.

As it was Wedfnesday it was two main courses for the price of one on a large selection of meals, which made it great value. The sauces etc with the poppadioms were really good. Usual style but with a difference.

We had Bhuna Aloo Ghosht, a medium hot chicken dish and Naga lamb, quite hot. Add in a really nice Peshwari naan and a good sized Pilau Rice side dish.

The house wine is pretty average but at £3.95 for a large glass, what do you expect?

At £27 all in it was great value for a great meal with good service.

We were staying in Cheddar this weekend and ordered a takeaway from Chillies. The menu offers a great choice of food from the mild to the seriously hot.......If you like the heat then I can recommend the Naga chilli chicken, the menu puts it in the same category as vindaloo - they're not wrong but it is a great tasting dish and they will tone it down to a madras strength on request.
All the dishes we ordered were really good quality and they good size portions.
If you're in the area give it a try - we will be going back........

Never been here before but we were staying 5mins up the road at Banwell Castle and decided on an Indian Meal just after Christmas 2013...what a good decision this was as the food, service and surroundings were superb to say the least. Nothing more to say really except that I would strongly recommend Chillies and if in the area again would definitely return without doubt. Enjoy!
