This is another high-street canteen from the ever-productive Ali brothers, who have opened (and closed) several similar venues across the capital in recent years. Mr Chilly follows the formula – generous home-style cooking with its roots in North India’s roadside drop-ins, served with gusto at prices that won’t frighten anyone. Expect plenty of buzz and banter as the locals work their way through bowls of karahi chicken livers, slow-cooked ‘deigi’ spring lamb and methi ghost, with chilli naans and roti to soak up the juices. Vegetarians do well here (look for butter beans with fenugreek or the mixed dhals), and there’s fresh kheer (Indian rice pudding) to finish; also check out the great-value thalis (from £4). Unlicensed, but milkshakes and falooda do the trick.
