I recommend this restaurant . The food is amazing. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Although I was only there with my husband I would certainly recommend this restaurant for groups of people/special occasions. Excellent value for money . Superb in every way.

My husband and I went here last month on a Saturday night. This was our first time here and definitely won't be our last. We went here based on reviews on trip advisor, we do live in the area but have to say I have never noticed the restaurant before, it's not in the most obvious area. The food was... More

We arrived at the Kali Mirchi restaurant at the start of their evening hours and found a cheerful and welcoming host and staff. The evening menu offers a wonderful selection of Starters, Tandoori selections, Main Dishes (traditional, classic, Biryanis, Vegetarian) and sides (dishes, rice, breads), and beverages. We were offered the desert menu, but were full and could not eat... More

My husband and I go here regularly. Every time we are greeted with a smile and we always feel welcome. The restaurant is very clean and tidy, somewhere you don't have to look at your cutlery and check it's not dirty. The food is lovely, something for everyone. We like our curries hot (talking about spice) and although the buffet... More

Hi Emily, Thank you very much for your kind words about Kali Mirchi. It's great to see you time and time again. We're particularly pleased that you mentioned your customisation of the buffet dishes.

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
