“Another gem in Southsea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We chose the Kashmir due to the good reports on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed, the decor is a bit dark and the blinds on the windows prevent you assessing the other diners, but it turned out we were only one of two dining that evening, but it soon filled up. The starter of a butterfly prawn was good but the main course of a specially recommended hot prawn dish was excellent. Good value and tasty food, just what you need afetr a busy day.

“As ordinary as it gets”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

I really don't understand how this establishment is number 3 in Portsmouth - number 1 Indian. My wife and I are slowly making our way through most Indian restaurants in the Portsmouth and Southsea area and have eaten in far better restaurants. On a positive note it's conveniently situated in central Southsea, the service was good, and it's reasonably priced, and there's enough of it. However the food is a bit stewed and far too salty, there's no zinginess or freshness to it. At the end of the evening I felt that the focus was more on quantity than quality.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Food was not good. Starter was smothered with oil. Main course was bland with no taste. Worst of all the beer was warm.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Great food, brilliant service, not too expensive, probably the best Indian in southsea, only criticism is it is too small for the amount of people that it holds.
