I was a little worried when the Colden Common version changed its name to Benares but after a recent visit I am happy to report the restaurant is in safe hands. The... read more

Purchased a VIP dining card for this restaurant. Was advised by the salesman that although this was not our most local Indian that it really wouldn't matter as they would provide free delivery as long as the original food order was over £20 before the one free meal offer was applied.

We have visited Rimjhims many times, both in Winchester city centre and the Colden Common restaurant. We are VIP card holders and can recommend this system for maximising your savings on meals at Rimjhims. We have always had excellent food in a spotlessly clean restaurant, with good service at all times.

During this time there was a constant stream of people collecting their takeaways with no delay. Having asked for our meal it was finally presented with no... More
