5 of us met up for a curry. Last time we came here it was amazing and this time unfortunately it wasnt great. We always have popadoms and chutneys - they were perfect. Starters consisted of Mixed Kebab x 2, Prawn Puree and Chicken Chat. They all came out nice and hot and were good. Lets move onto the mains.... More

I have gone to Kohinoor regularly and can vouch for the excellence of the food & service and the consistency of the experience. When I left Southampton I realised that this restaurant is one of the things I missed the most, so I make a point of returning when I come back here. It's top cuisine at reasonable prices. It's...

Amazing food. Would definitely recommend the Vazhudananga Curry (the aubergines are great) and the Kerala parata. Everything was delicious but these dishes particularly stood out. The service was quick, professional and also very helpful. They also do takeaway if you wanted to try at home however I would definitely recommend eating in as the atmosphere is great.

Having spent a lot of time in Kerela recently, I can say that the food here felt like the real deal, very authentic - rare for UK. Very good.
