Service: 7/10 – Extremely quick service, helpful and friendly staff.
Atmosphere: 6/10 – Quite a packed restaurant, don’t expect a lot of space or time for your meal!
Food: 9/10 – Words can’t express how much I love the food here. My absolute favorite dish here is the pig intestines, SO UNHEALTHY but SO GOOD!!! The fat just melts in your mouth. The fried beans and gung bao chicken are also two other dishes that I always end up getting (actually I just get the same dishes everytime I come because that’s how good they are).

Overall: I used live around this area so ate at Chilli Cool a lot. Now that I’m a bit further away, I don’t eat there as much but still make the effort to go just because it’s THAT GOOD. In fact writing about it now and looking at the photos makes me want to go again. This is definitely one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in London. Would recommend booking in advance (on the day is fine) as it can get quite busy during dinner times!
Would I recommend?: YES YES YES
