Another fantastic meal

I've been a regular of the Kohinoor of Kerala for quite a while now and I just can't praise the food and service highly enough! Had a great meal on Bank Holiday Monday and can't wait to visit again. You'll need to book it a very popular restaurant!

Fantastic service, such tasty food. More like Southern Indian food, drier and spicier than other Indian restaurants with a more genuine flavour. We travelled 10miles to get here and will do it again (several times).

I had read some excellent reviews so was keen to visit and try for myself. My husband and I both shared the chicken 65. It was really tasty and the flavours had marinated right through the meat, it was just spicy enough but not too hot. For mains we had the chicken dhansak and Karai chicken , both were delicious...

Love this place for a late night, after show meal straight from the Nuffield Theatre. The lamb ulsthiya masala is to die for. Very different, wholesome feeling Indian cuisine, not laced in fat and sauce that would stain your insides as some are. Well worth a visit.

The Kohinoor is always excellent. We go fortnightly and have done for the last 2 years because the food/service is just perfect. I live in Portsmouth but I can no longer face the 'glupe' served in the "Indian" restaurants here so I make the trek to Kohinoor. The Kohinoor is in a different league. It's almost the difference between tinned... More

Visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch and found the service friendly and the food excellent. A good range of unusual Indian dishes and a wonderful use of spices brings a great Indian food experience. We all tried something different and we were presented with freshly prepared dishes. I had the hot and spicy chilli paneer followed by a rich Kerala... More

Visited with family midday on a Sunday. Not the usual buffet option so frequently offered on a Sunday - a full menu was on offer. Lots of choice and a refreshing range of spiced dishes that I haven't already tried. Service was excellent and the food didn't disappoint.

We pitched up at 6:30 without a reservation and were surprised to find most tables filled and the remainder reserved! We persuaded them let us have a table and promised to only have a main if their service was fast! We were due at the game with an 8pm kick-off. They duly obliged and we enjoyed three different dishes which... More
