Ordered an aloo ki tikki and lassoni tikka for starters...the aloo ki tikki was fine but the lassoni tikka - what the hell is that? That should be taken off the menu for 2 reasons: 1) it's not an Indian dish, and 2) it tastes rank, it's like a gone off chicken kiev without the breadcrumbs. Eweee! For mains we... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend who lives in the area and I wasn't disappointed (I don't live in the area but was staying in Southampton on business). I drove there and managed to find parking on-street in Carlisle Road, just behind the restaurant. I ordered just a main course, South Indian Garlic Chilli with chicken, keema rice... More

Poppadums, pickles, Onion Bahjis, Chicken Bahjis and 4 main courses and rice... all very well done . My wife is vegetarian and they cook her a main course to order (usually the Mushroom... More

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.
