The buffet lunch is usually very yum. This time I went in and found no one else in the restaurant. Usually there are others enjoying the lunch buffet. I was shown to a table and my drink appeared. Within 5 minutes the starters were brought out and placed directly on my table. I had the usual selection all to myself.... More

I have been going to Kali Mirchi for 3 years and the food is always excellent. Having lived in many parts of the UK I have still not found a place that can rival the biryani or that chetinad - the staff are always exceedingly welcoming and friendly and I would not consider going to a different indiant restaurant if...

After waiting 1hr 30 mins (I was told an hour upon ordering) we were very disappointed with luke warm food that was delivered. I ordered chicken korma, which I have whenever we have an Indian, and...
