Stopped by here as we were close and it had TA reviews. We were the only people in the restaurant and there for and early lunch around 12h15. Service was good throughout as was expected with no other customers. We both ordered veg meals as we were fasting.

Wife ordered the veg makani hot and i ordered the paneer korma medium.

Makani was okay and nothing special but had a decent amount of heat. Korma was brilliant and very flavourful. Highlight was the naan, better than most places ihave had garlic naan at, very crispy, spices on it other than garlic to enhance the flavour.

Overall very enjoyable indian food experience and very good value for money.

Have visited this restaurant several times and the menu is consistent across, lamb, prawns and chicken, and several versions of good naan bread, and truly N Indian (we have been there). Surprisingly we have never seen it very full but understand that it does a lot of take aways. Clientele of all ages - a good sign.Sambals limited, as they should be including N. Indian green chutney. Service good and good quantity of spices used - however the Vindaloo had an overdose of chilis but they offered a fresh serving without fuss.

The service here was good but that's about all that's good. Probably the most bland and lacking-in-effort Indian food I've had in Joburg. I left with the feeling that maybe everyone who cooks for their families feels like they can also open a restaurant nowadays.

Red Chilli Spice is located on the upper for of the Colony Centre in Jan Smuts Avenue. The decor is fairly plain and functional. The menu is fairly extensive, with a great selection of favourite starters and mainly chicken and lamb curries for mains. The wine list is modest, but reasonably priced and caters for most tastes. O|ur food was simply awesome - excellently prepared and super easy, and just as ordered - mild, medium or hot curry. The service was very good. We especially liked the fact that ice was provided on the table with our wine and water, without having to ask for it - really thoughtful touch. You can't go wrong choosing this as your local Indian restaurant

Great choice from mild to wild at excellent value. My digestive system cannot accommodate spicy / hot dishes and the mild option I chose was full of flavour. This was our first visit and will definitely not be the last
