This is probably the best Chinese in Southampton simply because the value is so good at lunch time! If you (like me) like to eat a lot of good food then this is definitely the place for you. It deserves a lot more attention because the food is always fresh and delicious, the staff are excellent. I come here all... More

We had the buffet menu. The starters were very well cooked, tasty and well presented. We couldn't fault the main meals especially the fried rice which was probably the best we've had in a Chinese restaurant. We could not ask for a better value for money. We'll be back soon!

Waiter lovely! Food: Had buffet lunch menu. Has been done up since last visit, looks much nicer. Starters; Seaweed, pepper ribs, smoked chicken and spring rolls, ok, nothing to write home about. Mains; XO pork, chicken curry, fried rice and plain noodles. Pork a bit tasteless. Chicken curry, onions too many and raw, spices raw, chicken a bit too soft.... More

I write this review having only just returned from having lunch at this restaraunt, so the experience is fresh in my mind. We have been looking for a new Chinese/Cantonese restaraunt since the sad demise of the superb Imperial China in Lyndhurst but the Kachina does not even come close to filling that void. Firstly, restaraunt is grubby and uninviting... More

I only like Chinese buffets when they bring it to your table and food is cooked fresh which they do here. I only visited because Tangs was shut but it was so tasty so I'll be returning soon. You can park right outside which is handy & the staff are lovely and service is quick

My family have been eating at and from Kachina's Restaurant for many years. But I must say that the take away we have just received was poor! The food was cold on arrival. After we had all microwaved our meals we sat down to enjoy them. Sadly that was not the case. The king prawn curry contained so much onion... More
