Have been here many times before and the food is usually excellent but was really let down on this occasion. Arrived on time at 1915. Took 30 mins to take our drinks order and another thirty minutes and three reminders to get them. It was New Year Eve but the restaurant wasn't that busy. The problem seemed to occur with... More

Having enjoyed wonderful meals at this restaurant before, we thought a visit on New Year's Eve would be a great start to the year. We arrived at our table for 7.30pm and needed to prompt them to take our drinks order which arrived about 7:50p.m. Other tables were waiting and becoming restless as we witnessed many people coming and going...

Having heard many adverts for Kali Mirchi on Unity101, we decided to give the restaurant a try, and very glad we did! I would definitely eat at this restaurant again, and have no hesitation in recommending it. We had the best Indian food we've ever had in a Southampton restaurant on 21st December. The Chilli Paneer starter and Prawn Dhansak... More

I was with a party of six that recently dined at Kali Mirchi on Shirley High Street. I have to confess; we were treated like kings. Exquisite food in a cracking, festive atmosphere, with the staff delivering a robust service. As an habitual feaster when it comes to curries, my rather bulbous tummy was feeling a little delicate from an... More

My family and I always get a warm welcome whenever we arrive for a takeaway! We usually have a few Poppadoms with our beers whilst we're waiting for our food and they're always more than happy to clear the table so my little girl doesn't knock anything over. The food as always tasted fresh and well cooked. What I really... More
