Whether we visit the restaurant or get takeaway the food is always the best Chinese food I've had in Southampton. The starters especially are always delicious. It remains a good price and the service has always been efficient. Last time I went the service was friendly, would recommend.

We've used Kachina for many years. When it opened it really was very good. Gradually the quality of the food has dropped. For a couple of years it's been obvious that food is pre-cooked and re-heated. But last week we ordered a takeaway and it was one of the worst chinese meals I've ever had. The chicken in the Satay...

My wife and I came here on Sunday. Waiters are lovely and welcoming and well-presented. Had tasty and multi-choice starters and mains. Smoked chicken is highly recommended, sugary and crispy. Splendid. Kachina.

It was my sons 18th birthday celebrations and we had all the family over for an evening meal. We are outside of Kachinas normal delivery area, but they were very accommodating and agreed to deliver to us for a small charge (we were making a £100 order!). Food was delicious, service great. I would say average prices for a takeaway... More

I hadn't been here for a few years, but was happy to be back last night. The food was lovely and the service very good. I especially like the vegetarian crispy 'duck'! Really pleasant evening. Will be back again soon!

We popped in on a Friday night, was given a table straight away, and the Restaurant was very busy. We eat off the all you can eat buffet, the food was served in good time, and was very very nice! The service was excellent, will now become our first choice for Chinese in Shirley, and Southampton!

£8.50 a head for the lunch time buffet is excellent value for money. You can have as many starters from their list (Smoked Shredded Chicken, Vegetarian Curry Samosas, Thai Chilli Chicken, Breadcrumb Chicken, Satay Chicken on Skewers, Satay Mixed Vegetables, BBQ Spare Ribs, Capital Spare Ribs, Peppercorn Salted Spare Ribs, Sesame Prawn on Toast, Vegetarian Deep Fried Wonton, Crispy Fried...

The food is incredible HOWEVER the service in the last 2 years has been appalling. Staff sit over your shoulder, constantly asking if you're finished yet, and do not make offers very clear. Generally rude and impolite service. That being said, we keep going back because the food is fantastic. So if you're reading this Mr(s) Manager/Owner - please get... More

My husband and i visited this restaurant yesterday. The food very nice but the think the choice was a little limited. It would be better if there was more vegetarian food to choose from.on the whole though what we had was good value and tasty.
