We arrived early 6;50 and were the first people seated.Drinks orders were being asked for before we even had the drinks menu. Waited over an hour before getting starters, which were very small and average. Waited again for mains and had to chase a couple of times. Had to ask a couple of times for a plate for my daughter....

First time we had been as we were only visiting the area. We went at lunch time and it was calm, bright and modern inside. From my experience, some traditional indian restaurants feel quite dark inside regardless of time of day... On Sunday's they run an all you can eat buffet. We were a bit weary at first but the...

Went with my son. Great choice of food. 3 meat curries and 3 veggie ones. Loads of tasty options. Really nice saffron rice custard for pudding.

Wasn't sure whether to give 3 or 4 stars....has always been excellent, but not so great last few times. Clearly new chef...will give another chance soon, hopefully he(or she) will have bedded in and excellence resumed. The decor and service remain very good.

This is a real shame as the restaurant would be perfect for large parties who want a cheap price, however the quality of the food is dissapointing. The staff are not always overly friendly, although this could be a language barrier issue. The curry often falls in to the trap of just tasting of "sauce" with the meat content being... More

Start positive. The food is a cut above the standard British Indian restaurant fodder and if this was only about the food it would scrape a 4*. There's a variety and use of ingredients that sets it apart from what you'll see elsewhere. In addition there's an A La Carte menu with some impressive creations, both aesthetically and full of...

I work often in Winchester and, as I live out of a hotel while here, frequent a lot of restaurants in the area. Rimjhin is one of my favorites. The food is delicious, atmosphere warm and inviting, and the waitstaff and owner are kind and attentive. Definitely one of the best places to go if you're looking for a tasty... More

I took some colleagues here on Saturday night for a quick meal after we had been working late, simply based on the criteria that they could seat us. For starters we ordered Onion Bahji and Salmon Tandoori, but received Prawn Tandoori instead, which is not great if you have a shell fish allergy; although it was exchanged without a fuss... More
