Expert review of The Chilli Pickle
This seductive little place takes well-known (and lesser-known) specialities from India and Nepal and presents them with supreme imagination and flair. Of all the stereotype-busting new eateries to have opened in Brighton in recent years, I reckon it’s one of the best.
The ever-changing menu is short and chosen with care. Locally-sourced, free-range meat and fish always feature, and vegetarians are positively spoilt. At lunchtime, you can nibble on pea fritters, sticky ribs and other street-food-style tapas; the evening menu features moreish delicacies such as pumpkin dhansak and oxtail madras.
There are café-style tables in a warm, stylish space that’s often fully booked.
The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.
It’s tucked away in The Lanes, on a narrow pedestrian street.
At lunchtime, street food dishes are £2.50-£7.50 each while kebabs, dosas and thali platters are £8-£11; in the evening, main courses are £9-£17.
