Food was average, venue is average, service is average, toilets are awful hate to think what the kitchen looks like if the bathroom is anything to go by.

I've been using Kali Mirchi regularly over the last couple of years (mainly for takeaways) and have found the food mostly excellent.

We have visited Kali Mirchi many times and it never fails to disappoint as the food is consistently good and excellent value. My fussy son who is 6 years old eats more Indian food here than in any restaurant.
