    Perfect

    We were really disappointed with our experience as the restaurant was empty save for our table. Shortly before we arrived we were called to see whether we were still attending, we confirmed we were on route. When we arrived we realised we were the only table in the restaurant and clearly, given the experience that had followed, the staff were eager to close and didn’t really want our business. In fairness it was snowing but if they didn’t want our business just say they are closing rather than offer less thank adequate service.

    There were 3 members of staff present to look after our one table and it was completely obvious that they wished we had cancelled because they just wanted to close. Whilst our waiter was very friendly, we felt he didn’t really listen to what we ordered and there were many problems with our food: one of the starters wasn’t delivered, the steaks were over cooked, they forgot the sauce, they served the wrong type of coffee (asked for Americano and got a Cappuccino which I don’t like), they forgot the milk for the tea and then they brought ketchup when we asked for BBQ sauce. The food was mediocre which was hugely disappointing as we have been to this restaurant before and the standard on Monday evening didn’t compare to past experience. We were only a small table of five yet we had this many problems with our meal. Not sure we will return to be honest.

    After a good look at the menu we decided on one mushroom soup and one steak tartar starter both excellent and polished off.
    After we both had a steak served with four flavour fries and fresh veg, again food was superb and we will be going again soon to try another from the menu

    Quite cold. Ladies had to put their jackets back on.
    Tapas dishes rather small for the money. Main meals looked better value, although one of the diners had an upset stomach the day after eating (could be unrelated). Service was charming and helpful, and a couple of complimentary 'extras' came our way which were a nice surprise! Music (Rachael Johnson Quartet) was brilliant! Decor is East European in style and nicely quirky in a good way. With just a bit more attention to detail this place could be great!

    Good food,brilliant atmosphere, would go again

    Freshly cooked and nicely presented food and great atmosphere!

    A lovely evening. Soup starter to share was absolutely gorgeous and a huge portion which easily filled the 3 of us! Mains experience was varied, I enjoyed my salad, however my sons Paella lacked flavour in the rice but the seafood was very generous! Desert for myself was a very generous portion again and could easily have been shared. It was lovely having live music while eating our meal but this was very loud and difficult to hear each other talk. All said though it was an enjoyable evening overall. I must say the Maitre 'D was charming and attentive.

    First time at chilli village, really enjoyed it! Would go again.

    Amazing meal

    Absolutely lovely experience. Well worth the visit, Definitely would recommend to friends.

    Absolutely brilliant, lovely place with great food!

    Lovely evening at Chilli Village!

    First visit thought the whole meal, service and restaurant were first rate and cant wait to go back for more.
    Thank you

    Had a great meal at the Chilli Village. Food was good and plentiful. Live band was playing and atmosphere was lively with a mixture of age ranges.

    The food was outstanding with lots of added surprises such as caviar and truffle. The decor is unique like nowhere I've ever been. The service was professional and efficient and the whole experience is one I have spent time today sharing with my work colleagues who also live in or around Northampton. Highly recommend this place.
