Had dinner in the Chili Club on Saturday night. The service, food and ambience was excellent. Its a fab cosy restaurant just tucked down a lane off Grafton Street. I would highly recommend and very reasonably priced. I had the grilled sea bass with green vegetables, delicious and a nice bottle of French Red Ventoux wine. I will absolutely be returning. Top Marks.

Really good food as always. Only issue was that they don't open until 12.30 yet our booking was accepted for 12.15 on open table which led to them not being quite ready for us

Food was just about OK. Got an early bird which was good value but wouldn't rate the Thai chilli mince. Partner had green curry which was nice.

We arrived early and the staff accommodated us by giving us a table outside where we had drinks. It was lovely to go into the restaurant which was warm and inviting. Staff were very welcoming and the food and ambience were perfect. Will definitely be back!

Very friendly and attentive service. But mixed food quality with some excellent dishes ( yellow curry and sea bass) and some quite weak ones ( beef salad and chicken satay). Needs to focus its menu and concentrate on more authentic food flavours and higher quality for the price.

Having seen the Early Bird menu advertised on the OpenTable website for 22.95, I booked a table for 2 for 5.45 on Saturday 14th August. However, when we were given the menus we were told that the Early Bird menu was not available anymore. Given that I had booked the restaurant and the time based on the value of the Early Bird menu, this was disappointing to hear and it was too late to make alternative arrangements. The food was delicious and I would recommend this restaurant but for future custom, you should consider removing the Early Bird menu from this site as it is misleading.

I hadn’t been to the Chili Club for many years and was really looking forward to revisiting the restaurant. Overall, the visit was a disappointment. The décor is tired – I doubt it has changed in the many years since I last visited. The food – which I was really looking forward to – was patchy. One of the starters, duck pancakes, was disappointing. The pancakes were lukewarm, and the vegetables looked to have been prepped far in advance and were limp. It was edible but unremarkable. The fish cakes were far better though. My main was red curry, which again was unremarkable.
Overall, I left the Chili Club feeling that my time and money would have been better spent at any of the competing eateries in the city. This is a pity as I had memories of better meals at the establishment. I doubt that I will visit the Chili Club again.
