The reviews speak for themselves.  Absolutely stunning authentic food.  I am very very picky about depth of flavour and cannot fault this evening's meal at all.  We started with the Tandoori Platter which was full of flavour and all meat was tender and moist.  Punjabi Chicken for main.  Knock me down with a feather!!!  Stunning!!!!  Absolutely full as a boot but just can't stop eating.  We also had Potato and Onion Kulcha to compliment the main meal.  Yum.  This place is a must for locals and visitors alike.

This place is awesome. Best Indian food in Napier. You get a lot in the 10 dollar dinner deal. Always generous portions with naan bread.

Best curry I have had in NZ for a long long time!  Popped in to pick up a take-away, quite impressed to see the restaurant busy serving Indian families, always a good sign!  Friendly service and advice from the waitress helped me choose a Chicken Dopiaza, Beef Dhansak and chickpea curry with a garlic naan ($45, fed two hungry adults).
The pieces of beef were large and very tender, no fat or gristle.  Chicken also succulent.  Very spicy, obviously fresh spices throughout and well crafted!  Looked great as the lids came off the containers, and the aroma had my mouth watering immediately!
I live in Hastings, but will come back to Taradale eat here again!

We have been to Indian restaurants all over New Zealand and we consider Red Chilli to be amongst the best. Great selection of starters and mains. Good quality cuts of meat. Very good value. Just brilliant. Thank you.

Best Indian we have experienced in a long time. Great service, diverse menu and very tasty food. Indian can sometimes be very rich and creamy but I think this restaurant has found the right mix. Very reasonably priced and byo just $2.50 a bottle. We had a great dinner over a few bottles of wine.

Went couple of weeks ago. Excellent Decoration of Indian traditions and cultures. Delicious foods. I really enjoyed Mixed Platter which comes with Onion Bhaji, Pakoras, Sekh Kabab and garlic chicken Tikka (I hope I typed it correctly lol)...Butter Chicken was awesome...!!!!

Staff are fine and friendly.

Good value of money. Recommend to everyone.

Food - standard fare supplemented with interesting off-menu items, welcome for the 2 vegetarians in our group; less creaminess, more spice, tomato and authentic Indian flavours - ideal for the waistline-conscious gourmand.

Service - attentive, friendly, prompt,accommodating, superb English. Food came out hot and well-presented.

Prices - very reasonable
