Fantastic Indian!

Went along with some very special friends who had been before and just raved about it! We were not disappointed - a couple of us had the mixed meat starter for two which was excellent with generous portions. Main course was also first class ( I had the prawn curry).

Ive had a few hundred curries in my time, and often get sceptical when an establishment flies high on TripAdvisor. However, in this case it is well worth the rave reviews. Staff are very friendly and cheerful, but the food is amazing. Best in Southampton easily. Food was very fresh and homely. Only regret was having Naan, rather than one... More

Eaten here many times and also had takeaways. Great food and great service every time. Never thought I'd have another masala dosa like I had in Kerala but I found it here! Thoroughly recommended!

I went with a group and wasn't expecting it to be that amazing, especially since the garish purple and yellow facade is a bit off-putting. Having said that, I was very pleased with what I had, got decent value for money and would definitely go back.

This is a super curry restaurant. The staff are very friendly and the food is delicious. The lemon chutney is out of this world!

Always busy which is a good sign and you may have to wait if you haven't booked. Good menu and cheerful staff. Never been disappointed.

We have been going to Kohinoor for a long time. They changed some years ago to Kohinoor of Kerala, and the standard went down. But more recently (after a change of management?) the food is almost as good as it was originally.

Have eaten hers several times. Always good food and service with some very imaginative and unusual dishes. Very popular so booking advised

This restaurant looks unremarkable from the outside, but is very well appointed inside and the service is simply perfect. The food was so tasty and much more genuine in flavour than most. Perhaps a little spicier, but this was taste spice, not just pure heat. Very very impressed. Will be going back (regularly).
