Great and authentic Chinese food - but if you're not Chinese you'll have to persuade them that you do want your food spicy! There is an English menu, but the Chinese menu is bigger and has the good stuff - you can use the Google...translate app. Waiting staff are friendly, though not all speak English. Inside is basic but the food is more important here! Try the chili beef, and the aubergine side dish.More

The reviews are probably on point, however in the case of our meal (Chili Chicken), there was barely any meat at all, it was all chopped up pieces which includes tiny bones, sinew et al.. The portion size was very good, but unless you are...prepared to carefully dissect each morsel to the point of it being suitable to digest then for me it was a huge disappointment. BYOB (£2 corkage fee Wine, and £1 per beer) *2 stars are for the crispy coating as it was bangin'More

Was on holiday in Belfast and popped into this restaurant, without reviewing about it. In this case, it was truly an awesome move. The service & meal was 110%!! Well recommended, so don't be put off by its basic layout, as The Chilly House is...truly a hidden gem and my satisfied stomach can confirm that . .Hmmm!! It's a pity we have to go home now.. 😕😊More

My friends and I ordered food online, the chilli house were quite nice on the phone but we got our food back and the order was almost completely wrong. We complained and the manager was very unaccommodating with our incorrect order, blaming us for ordering...the wrong thing even though we knew exactly what we ordered. After getting nowhere with that we decided to just eat the food. Halfway after eating the food, I find a piece of metal in my duck curry. Very appalling experience and a FOOD HEALTH HAZARD.

2 menus are available with the typical NI Chinese menu in English and the more authentic Chinese options in mandarin. We really wanted to the try authentic options but unfortunately we had to try and translate it on our phones. The staff were friendly and...assisted us. We were told the tofu would come with a sour sauce but it ended up just being squidgy tofu in bisto gravy, very disappointing. The chili beef bowl was ok, but I'd be in no rush back. The other customers were given chopsticks, small spoons and plates but we weren't given these.More

This is an unassuming little place that you could easily walk by and miss. Don't. The food is very tasty and portion sizes are more than enough. Prices are very reasonable and I look forward to returning.

While looking for a place to eat before a movie at the cinema, we wandered down Dublin Road and found our way into this wee place. The staff was friendly, efficient and welcoming. The food was phenomenal! We ordered beef black bean curry, sweet and...sour pork, and chicken fried rice. The portions were massive! We had to pack up the leftovers, which doesn't happen too often. I was thoroughly impressed by and stuffed to the brim with our delicious meal. Definitely a must visit.More

We are very sorry that you experienced such situation. The girls were new part-timers which mistook the pricing. The manager then realized the mistake and rectified it by returning £2 on the spot. We will be more cautious in the future and train our part...More

I have eaten here twice in the last two months. The service and the food are excellent and I would highly recommend the establishment. The curry was perfect and the noodles cooked to perfection (yes, curry and noodles). Well worth a visit.

While on a late conference call and feeling super hungry, I searched for the nearest restaurant. The Chilli House was only two doors away. After checking out the menu online I walked there to place a takeaway order. The young woman who initially helped me...couldn't speak English (but assumed I could speak Mandarin because I am Chinese). While she went to find someone who could help me, I picked up a menu -- that was all in Chinese. I looked around -- all the diners were Chinese. I started to feel pretty good about my choice in restaurant but my expectations were still low (that's what happens when you travel a lot for business). I ordered my go-to favorite spicy tofu and to my surprise it was amongst the best I've ever had. My pork dumplings were also delicious. Having eaten at various places in China and in some of the best Chinese restaurants in Richmond BC, I was really impressed with The Chilli House's food and wished I had discovered this place on my first night vs. my last night in Belfast. I would have eaten here every single meal if I could have. It's a small business with a limited staff -- at least one of whom isn't fluent in English -- so adjust your expectations on that front. The food is worth it!More

I walked in and waited to be seated,but was ignored by young chinese waitress,who went to a young chinese man who came in and walked to the counter. I proceeded to the counter and they stared at me. Eventually I convinced them I wanted to...sit and eat. I got a menu and then a friendly chinese girl with good english came and was so helpful. I ordered jasmine tea which was disappointing only made with a tea bag and little taste. My main of beef and black bean sauce with mushroom came quickly. Boiled rice is extra,not included. The beef was like velvet and the black bean sauce deep and tasty. But I only found one piece of mushroom. At a price for all of 11.50 it was only 50 pence for the tea. So I will be back and recommend it after my original hiccups.More

Came here on New Years Eve, it was very busy, which is always a good sign, there were only two young girls serving, they were clearly out of their depth, but didn't refuse anyone a table. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions huge!...We would definitely eat here again if we were in Belfast.More

We happen to stumble on this place as it was close to our hotel and we were looking for some Asian hot pot food. This place offered a variety of pan Asian food including spicy hot pots and different types of noodles (udon/vermicelli). Food was...presented well, tasty and plentiful. An added bonus was it was BYO, which meant we could add our favourite bottle of wine. All in all, a pleasant experience, without being expensive.More

Ate here many times and enjoyed it. Last Visit was appalling. Jellied chicken, beef as tough as old boots and glutenous fried rice. Terrible Chinese food.
