Really friendly staff, attentive without being intrusive. Good menu choices. The atmosphere was relaxed and the décor was pleasant. The food was good and the pilau rice is the best I have eaten. The mixed chicken starter for 2 is fantastic, a meal in itself!

Unable to visit the restaurant for a meal we ordered a takeaway. It was superb, delivered exactly in the time period promised. The meal was freshly cooked and piping hot. Kali Mirchi still do the best Onion Bhajis I have ever tasted, absolute perfection.

We called in on the off chance for a meal and we were lucky there was room. The service was very good with friendly staff and our meal was delicious. We will be back on our next visit to Southampton.

Four of us visited for an evening. Our favourite curry house in Southampton. The food just seems to get better and better. It was a very busy evening and pleased we had booked. The service is always good. Highly recommend.

the food is great and staff very attentive and friendly but the food takes ages to be served. Not sure if it was the take away service taking their time up or if it was because of xmas businesses. didn't leave until gone 11pm!

With friends we have a curry club, with several members growing up in India , this is resturant aims at "real curries" rather than curries based around the simpler styles of some curry houses.The food is brilliant, with gentle helpful , non pushy service.
