Best Indian restaurant/takeaway in Eastleigh!

This is my go to place for a good curry in Eastleigh. Very reasonably priced and the food is just excellent. I order takeaway more often than eating in, but all experiences have always been great. Friendly staff and very good priced beer make me come back again and again!

I had a choice of two Indian restaurants in the same street and unwittingly chose this one because I was too lazy to walk back. I had samosa and veg curry - it was awful. As was the service.

Firstly I had a good experience booking I needed to add 2 people to the reservation which they were able to accomodate with no trouble despite it being a Friday evening when our group went. I personally had the Chicken Chat for starter which was fantastic. I particularly enjoyed the slight spice kick it gave and it made for a... More

This is simply one of the best Indian Restaurants I have ever eaten in - and I have sampled many. The service is quick and friendly and the food is authentic and beautifully cooked. The portions are generous and they are only too happy to provide take away boxes if you can't manage everything in one sitting. I have also... More

Great food and not too bad on price.. This was our first visit here so we had high expectations and to be fair they got close. I will use them again. We only had main courses so can't comment on starters or puddings

As long as they keep doing what they do and keep the beer at a reasonable price (About £3.50 a pint I think) then this will remain my favourite curry house in Eastleigh. My only criticism is that they often under fill the beer glass! It may not look much and may be a bit small but if you want... More

We all had good main courses, but insipid chutneys with the popadums and starters were poor, bahjis and samosas chewy and tasteless. So really quite good for main meal recommended for that but best avoid the starters.

Nothing very special, I have had better, but I have had worse. Not particularly friendly service, I was eating alone and was mostly ignored, even had to ask for a second drink!

We went to Saffron Indian restaurant on Sunday for the buffet. A present to my husband for fathers day. Decided to try the buffet as we are not very familiar with Indian dishes and wanted to try a few different things. At £12.95 eat all you like is excellent value and drinks very good price - pint of beer only... More
