Good food, no drinks

Went there with my daughter and two of her friends, first day in Southampton, only Indian restaurant in the neighborhood. Food was very good, service a bit amateuristic, served no beer or wine. However, we were adviced to purchase that next door and bring it in.

Wouldn't even give one star. Delivery took 1hr40mins when they said it would only take 45mins - called to see where it was and got hung up on, called back didn't even get an apology, told me it would take as long as it takes because they were busy. Rude staff, swearing down the phone. Finally got the food and... More

Worst service ever received. Getting spoken to on the phone by a jumped up little boy after being lied to several times "it's definitely 10 minutes away now.." Still no food TWO HOURS later and no money coming back my way after several complaints. No wonder the place is empty like people say. Joke.

I ordered a takeaway on Monday night and despite being told it would take 50 minutes, it took an hour and 45 minutes to arrive! Just to make things worse it was stone cold and they charged full price. There are plenty of better options in the area.

Ok I have ordered from these guys before and I had problems then, that was about a year ago. All I would say is avoid! So I orderd a dish called Mutter Paneer and traditionally Paneer is indian cheese, NOT standerd cottage cheese. For all the staff at Chowderys this is what paneer is supposed to be http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paneer If you... More

I haven't had a takeaway for over a year, and I really fancied curry and caved in, I wish I didn't. The food took over an hour and half to be delivered (on a Sunday) It smelt lovely, but when I opened the bag everything was covered in grease. The portions were big but the quality was very, very poor.... More

We ordered a takeaway from Chowdhurys as we were going to go there for a meal with friends in the week. It took 1hr 40 minutes. We phoned several times and they said it was on the way and then we could not get through any more. When it arrived it was stone cold with poor portion size and the... More

Looking for a restaurant last Sat with 4 kids and 6 adults we stumbled on the Curry Lounge. What a transformation from a low key exterior to a clean, bright and new exterior. The staff were helpful and the food good. As everybody was hungry from a day at Peppa Pig world the food went down a treat. We would... More
