First class food and service from Madan , Anil and the team. Along with the regular favourites for those who want the comfort of knowing what they are going to get, there are plenty of dishes you will not find elsewhere, and last night it was Naram Garam Gosht - take my word the lamb was tender, moist and full...

I have eaten in many of the Curry Houses in Southampton and this is one of the best. I have tried the lunch time buffet, Dinner and takeaway. The food is excellent, well prepared and a very good portion. The staff are extremely polite and very efficient. Give them a try you will be more than happy.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday lunch time with my grand kids, they all love curry, so no one was disappointed here, with a great selection of items in the buffet to choose, to start with onion bhaji, chicken pakora salads, chutneys, and pompadoms, the mains were veg. Lamb, chicken hot and mild, complete with peas rice and nan breads,... More

Thank you for your visit and review. It certainly sounds like everyone in the group was satisfied! We do try to keep a wide buffet selection so there's something for everyone's taste and it looks like we hit the mark here. Please do come back for another Sunday curry some time soon. - The Kali Mirchi Team More

This has been my local Indian restaurant and takeaway for as long as I can remember and i'm constantly blown away by the quality and kindness of the staff - especially the manager. The portions are extremely generous and really stand out amongst the other Indian restaurants i've been to. I usually try something a bit different as I find... More

This restaurant is less than a mile from where we live, it has been there for four years, until this evening we have never eaten there, shame on us. It was simply one of the best Indian meals we have ever had. The food was fresh and full flavoured. The staff were extremely attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. We shall return,... More

Hi Katie, thank you for your glowing endorsement! We're especially pleased about your comments on our naan bread. We feel that, properly prepared, a good naan bread is something that can really complement a main dish - and we make great efforts to get this right. Please come back again soon! - The Kali Mirchi Team More

Tried out because of decent reviews on tripadvisor and fancied somewhere different. And must say the food was really clean and tasty. Starting with poppadums, very big and crunchy with nice tasting dips especially the onion which had a bit of spice to it. I ordered lamb madras and having eaten many in the past, this one was right up... More

This was recommended to us as a "real" Indian restaurant and is indeed wonderful. The staff are good, honest, sincere people and they have a great menu with reasonable prices. No hyper flavored, over salted food here, or staff up-selling you or constantly offering you more alcohol, just outstanding cuisine and somehow far more wholesome than other indian restaurants I...

It is a good, decent restaurant with good service. The staff were very polite and obliging, which is always great to see. The meal was good and really tasting well. The only issue was with the Biryaani I ordered. Normally Hyderabadi Biryaani is served with Raitha and Mirch ka salan. Instead I was given just some vegetables curry along with... More
