Chilli Flames (Halal) (Livingston) : Review

INVITE


I got invited to their preview weekend to come and try some of their dishes, and I couldn’t wait as I had a wee peek at the menu and what I saw all sounded and looked really good.⠀

About

With over 12 locations throughout the UK in cities like Leicester, Derby, Cardiff, Bolton and Stirling, Chilli Flames are delighted to announce their newest location in the town of Livingston. Chili Flames prides itself on serving freshly prepared flame-grilled peri peri chicken, mouthwatering burgers and indulgent wraps.

Chilli Flames are all about flavour! We have worked hard to create a secret range of marinades and sauces that cover all of our chicken. Our chicken is always fresh and never frozen. That is why we believe that we serve the tastiest and freshest grilled chicken to our customers.

First Impressions

On entering the place has a great look and colour scheme, for me, it felt very warm funky and modern and I was very relaxed the whole time I was there.

I was told they would get a few things ready so I could sample a few dishes, which was great as that meant I get to show you the dishes and tell you my thoughts plus you get to see what they do 🙂

The Food

LOADED NACHOS

CRISPY NACHOS WITH CHICKEN, SALSA, SOUR CREAM, JALAPEÑO, AND TOPPED WITH CHEESE.

On arrival these instantly caught my eye, and my mouth started to water.

Now it was time to dig in.

WOW the flavours were amazing, the chicken was mega tender, and every mouthful was packed with flavour and I can say this was finished.

Hummous & Funky Naan Sticks

At first I wondered what these sticks were, but they are like a squashed naan which was 100% perfect to eat the hummous.

The hummous was really nice, and also had a wee sauce on top which added to the flavour.

Very addictive!!!

This is now my second visit to Rishi’s Indian Aroma Glasgow Restaurant, you can take a look at my previous review here

Just like the last time the atmosphere was very nice, the music wasn’t too loud and the staff were very attentive.

Tonight was a nice dinner outing with good friends.

Starters :

Rishi’s Family dosa £19.95
5 foot long Crisp dosa can feed a family accompanied with Potato masala, Paneer, variety of Chutney & sambar

The dosa as you can see filled the table from end to end, and to its side you can see some of the dips and extras it comes with.

This was my first time trying a Dosa, it was very nice and the dips that came with it were nice and added to the flavour. Next time I would maybe order the small one rather than the family one, but yeah I would have this again.

 

Gobi Manchurian £5.45
Vegetarian alternative with Cauliflower to Nelson Wang’s Creation.

I recently tried this at my last visit at Chaakoo Bombay Cafe, and really liked it so I thought I would try it here to see how they make it.

The cauliflower was not as crispy as Chaakoo, and this was a little more spicy. This was also very nice, and I liked Rishi’s take on this.

Again I would be happy to have this again, and please do give this a try if you come here.

Overall :

Overall I had a really good night, we had lots of laughs and a lot of nice food.
