Food is always fantastic here! Slightly over-priced perhaps but you expect it with the quality. Service was slow, waiting for about an hour for mains from sheet popularity.

Only went here as the reviews were amazing however we had a takeaway from here last night and all I can say is .... average. Pretty bland in comparison to other curry restaurants I have been too and we were left quite disappointed. It's pricey compared to the quality of food. We eat curry a lot and can honestly say...

although small the welcome was fantastic; they know their food and their regions, the spices, how each dish is prepared. They clearly use fresh herbs and the overall impact was a really great meal.

We have eaten here many times over the last few years. We have never had a bad curry. The staff are always the same and give a warm welcome with good service. The food is always excellent and booking is usually essential as it's always busy.

Out with some colleagues for dinner. We had some great food and service with a smile. We were impressed by the quality of food with good taste. Prices are reasonable and the menu has a large variety of plates. Very friendly owner and staff. I know where to go when passing through Southampton next time.

My friends & I visited Kohinoor of Kerala after several months - a long absence indeed. And the warm welcome by Abraham & Kamal & the rest of the team, & the familiar delicious tastes set us right. The menu had changed - a few new dishes; & it had been smartened up too. But the excellence of the food... More

My nephew and I have decided to combine our travels following LFC with trying out as many Indian sub-continent cuisines as we can in 2017. This Kohinoor has a menu that is varied, but where the owner gave us good advice on what constitutes "real" Kerala ditched. We chose one with fish (Kerala Meen Curry, lovely favours) and one with...

We were surprised by the very busy room even on a cold midweek day. You can see is a local favourite. We tried many different starters, curries and naans and rices. It was all of great quality and fresh flavours. Service was efficient and quick. I wouldnt order wine again but everything else was outstanding. Will def return.

Thank rubenanton
