A very typical curry house for Southsea. You won't go to far wrong, it is average in town in all respects, I will add there is a lot of competition in town and Southsea is typically above average for the UK due to the competition. The food was what I expected, but nothing special. The service if fine and the... More

Food was great and really good value, nice quiet restaurant and not huge, found a bit of plastic in the Saag Aloo but they gave its a free round of Baileys to rectify, all in all would definitely go back again!

There are more restaurants to choose from in Albert Road and the surrounding area than you can shake a stick at ... However .... We always return here. Food is beyond delicious from an extensive menu and great value for your money. Wonderful selection of exotic beers to choose from and although I'm a keen wine drinker, I feel beer... More

The Golden Curry is a friendly and welcoming restaurant with comfortable seating, warm lighting, charming staff and delicious food. My 12 year old daughter and I always feel like we are visiting family when we choose to have an evening here.

The food here is just delicious, some people may defer but unless you actually try this place out yourself, you'd realise what you're actually missing! A business lasting this long with the original owner being still there must definitely mean something is good. All the staff are very welcoming and are very good at providing help when you want a...

Been here a couple of times now. Decent Talis and Biryani. Good location also. A bit pokey if there's a big crowd would be my main criticism
