The restaurant itself is very pleasant and can’t fault the rice & bread but the madras curries were just ridiculously hot to the point that we just could not eat them despite giving it a good go! Not cheap either - £2 ( converted from...lev) for X2 popadums and some mango chutney…More

Absolutely bloody awful!!! Starter (lamb samosa) - reheated and VERY DRY.. NOT FRESH FOOD. Cold in the middle. Main - Chicken Biriyani - Super dry and overcooked chicken pieces. 1 good thing. Nice Peshawar naan. Do not recommend.

It is by far the best indian food that you can find in Sofia. The staff is very warm and welcoming, the food quality is great and the atmosphere is chill and relaxing. I would definitely recommend it.

To be honest I have never visited the restaurant. I order food for home because I live far away from the place. I found out about the restaurant on internet. Let me tell you...everything I have order so far is so tasty! Often in Sofia...Asian restaurants adapt their food to local tastes...which ends up making the food tasteless. Kohinoor have to a large extent kept the taste of India. I know the because I have been to many Indian restaurants in the UK. As I said, I have never been to Kohinoor so I cannot say anything about the atmosphere in the restaurant. I order their food over the phone. Delivery is always ponctual for an extra charge of 3 Leva. (1.5€). The person who responds on the phone is always very kind. My guess is that if you visit the restaurant you will not be disappointed by the atmosphere. Home delivery is also a very good option. You will not be disappointed by the quality of the food, that I can say for sure.More

Very authentic food with explosion of flavours. And you have a lot of choices between mild, hot or suicide hot :))) The bread was impressive too. Nice place

I liked the food here, the chicken is very tasty and high quality. the lamb naan came a bit burned, so it was inedible. Excellent chicken korma, although not spicy (hot) at all. I don't know why but they put candied fruit in every dish,...a bit boring, otherwise - decent food with generous amounts of traditional herbs and spices. Will order again for sure, the delivery was superfast.More

Unique food, unique service, unique atmosphere! We visited the restaurant yesterday, we had to wait because we didn't have a reservation, we sat down after about 15 minutes and the magic of this unique place was revealed, everything was delicious spicy lamb was great in...combination with the sparkling wine that the waiter recommended to us. I recommend to all lovers of spicy foods !!!More
