The service was swift and polite and the food was fabulous. It came out very quickly which was good. We had poppadoms and... More

Had a fabulous meal at kali mirchi . The staff were brilliant, the menu was wonderfully different and had a large choice of meals. The place itself although not in a great looking area was lovely inside. Very peaceful and quite upmarket looking. The restaurant is not hugely big and it gets very packed so you must book a table...

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...

Naturally we're thrilled we created a good impression and you've taken the time to write about it. Thank you for pointing out the diversity of our menu and please do come back soon. -... More

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.

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
