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

It was then turned back up later in the evening. Food was ok, ive had a lot better, i have no idea why this resturant is so highly... 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

Ordered a Chicken Makhani from here and my partner ordered a Paneer Makhani. The sauces were exactly the same except my Chicken Makhani was extremely over salted to the point (and I don't exaggerate) where I couldn't taste anything else. Won't be going back, much better places to go in Southampton.

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

Many people rate this restaurant highly, and I agree. Don't be expecting haute cuisine however. This is a "standard" curry restaurant, but plying its trade at the high quality end of the market. Other than that it is a typical curry house. Located in a suburb of Southampton, it is part of a row of shops in Shirley. All very... More
