On our many previous visits we have always been impressed with the quality and range of food. However, yesterday's visit was a gross disappointment. We arrived at noon and were amongst the first to go to the buffet. The soup was inedible and absolutely disgusting....More

Went in the afternoon, the place was empty, but the staff were very friendly. It's a restaurant but has a nice bar with a view of the water and historical quotes around the wall. Enjoyable pint

The food is of good standard as we have come to expect from Kuti's restaurants however a little on the pricey side . Service a little slow and not very attentive.

Kuti's Royal Pier Thai must be the most attractive restaurant in Southampton.Originally the old Royal Pier Frontage, the building has been sympathetically renovated to a grand auditorium and has a lovely atmosphere.Upstairs the view across the Solent can be quite breathtaking and romantic.Downstairs the spacious area makes it ideal for special occasions.
