Description

Those of you looking for a curry in Brighton with a little dining panache should look no further than award winning Lanes based restaurant bar, The Chilli Pickle. 

Departing from the somewhat garish carpet laden curry houses of days gone by, The Chilli Pickle has opted for a subtle nook of simplicity. From exposed beams and industrial lighting to steel chairs and florally embossed wooden walls, The Chilli Pickle may shimmer with colour during the day, but turns in to a wholly romantic affair come the evening, perfect for date nights in Brighton; be you sat at their high stool dining bar or down in the main restaurant. 

Known for their award winning flavours, homemade chutneys and classic Indian dishes, The Chilli Pickle have added a little dining chic to their eating experience with sophisticated dishes and Eastern fare. The Chilli Pickle also boast a hearty range of international beers, cocktails and wine the like, making sure that all tastes, no matter how exotic, are catered for.

Nice food but a 1hr 15 minute wait is unacceptable, especially when the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. Told waitress we would not be paying service and no apology or additional drinks taken off bill as a sorry. Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-04-22

One of my friend’s meal arrived a good 5 mins after the rest. And then one of your staff members spilt some food all down my dad’s jumper and trousers. No offer of even a free drink was given which I think would have been fair or an item removed from the bill for such events. So overall I was disappointed by some of the service received.

I am a coeliac and there was a bit of confusion Over the food I was given. One waiter said I could eat part of the meal and another waiter said I couldn’t which resulted in me not eating any of the food, as always better to be sure. Wouldn’t recommend visiting if you are gluten free. That said the rest of my family said there food was lovely Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-04-21

Really enjoyed the food but rice portion is too small. After we finished our main we were still hungry :(. Love the cocktail and service was superb by Jaun. Will definitely be back but will have to ask for bigger portion of rice cuz for the price we paid for it should be match with the price that u charged. Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-04-14

We come here several times a month and it never dissapoints! We know the menu more than the waiters do at this rate! My only criticism this time was that they gave our food to someone else who had only just ordered and we were waiting almost 45 minutes for our main, but this hasn’t happened before so hoping it was just a one off!

Everything was delicious with a good variety of sauces and chutneys. We like that the menu changes and is not your run of the mill English Indian restaurant list. My Pondichery chicken was unctuous and tender. Knowledgeable wait staff too. Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-04-11

The vegan main (rice dumplings) was very bland and the curry was very bitter. I did not eat very much of the meal because it was not at all good. This is the second time I've had a very bad meal at the restaurant. I doubt I'll go back Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-04-10

Fantastic food as always. However at some points during our meal the music volume was increased to the point that we struggled to hear each other talking. It’s quite a loud and busy restaurant at the best of times so the music really didn’t need to be so loud. Thankfully after about 10 mins the music volume was reduced.

Bit disappointed in the new menu! Lovely service as always but there seem to be fewer veggie choices and the paneer dish I had was over-creamy and the rice was very dry. Such a shame as Chilli Pickle is always my first destination when going for a curry. Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-04-03

Disappointing... visited following a recommendation from a friend. The popadoms were cold & the main courses all seemed to have a strange taste. I also don't understand why you don't get a plate? Impossible to put the curry on the rice & the selection of additional condiments were odd. Great shame as I was looking forward to the experience. Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-03-23

Not as good as our first visit some years ago. The move toward's less personal customer exchanges does not sit well with the initial street food concept. More control should be excersised by knowledgeable staff to tell customers just how street and authentic the food can be. Customers we sat next to had little idea what was available and neither did the staff. Visited The Chilli Pickle on 2018-03-19
