I walked in the door and waited to be seated. No hostess came so I seated myself. 2-3 minutes later a waitress came and told me that I had to move to a smaller table as I was alone. I asked if I could remain where I was and she said no and that I had to move. Since she didn't ask me but told me to move, I just left.

This is a small restaurant, with limited seating, so a short wait for a seat is possible; But Oh So Worth The Wait! It is very clean. My orders have always been right. The 'spicy-level' of the food generally comes at a low-medium for Asian cuisine connoisseurs, but can be adjusted to be hotter or milder by request when you order. The staff and cook are very friendly. Dining there is like eating at a friend’s house. You can see the cooking going on in the kitchen. It is a cash or check only restaurant, open from 11am to 4pm on Wednesday thru Saturday, and beginning October 7th, 7pm to 9pm on Friday evening. The menu is not extensive, but considering that there are only 3 people running it, they pull off some culinary magic with how fast the food is prepared and served. I am amazed, and in all my visits, I have never heard an unhappy remark from any customer. Everyone leaves filled and happy. It’s truly my favorite place to eat, and I travel 25 miles to get there.

Amazing food - love the atmosphere and prices - very helpful staff. Only improvement might be longer hours but I won't complain. I'll just keep going back.

Excellent food-service-atmosphere.After moving from Oakland, FL near Orlando, Red Chilli was an awesome food find. Fresh ingredients and quality dishes---you can't go wrong here. The chef visited our table inquiring about our food and other personnel chatted with other frequent foodies from the area. Would love to see evening hrs of operation which would require a larger dining area but yet love the cozy space they have.

What a surprise! Definitely 5 stars for the quality of the food at this price. I've had better food, but had to pay 5-times as much to get it.
A tiny restaurant in an out-of-the-way location that serves artfully prepared dishes for less than $9.
I have been numerous times and the food is consistently delicious.
Odd hours, though. 11-4 Wednesday-Saturday. I hope they will be expanding their hours and seating. I recommend that they get a liquor license.

Best Korean food in the region and the best Asian restaurant of any kind in the Tri-cities. The tiny space is generally filled to brimming with clientele and the atmosphere is friendly and informal, very much like eating out of the chef/owner's home kitchen.

This is one of the best restaraunts in the tri-cities area. Good services, good food, and good people. If you're not open to new experiences, i wouldn't try it.

Better Korean Food than I had in Korea! Small but not unlike a small Korean village restaurant in atmosphere. (a good thing) Not too spicy, but just right

review_stars 11/11/2008 - Peggy
This is real food, cooked from fresh vegetables ect.
made by a Korean lady that aims to please her customers. I've never had a bad meal. If you like your food with spice and enjoy a different taste.....not your fast food stuff....this is the place you must try.
