Visited here last week for dinner with my eldest (18 years) and youngest (7 years) and had a really tasty meal - eating from the "Evening Buffet" menu. Parking outside on the road was easy - right across from the restaurant (as parking restrictions only apply during the day). The restaurant itself seemed clean, and staff were attentive and friendly.... More

We used to visit Kachina regularly a few years ago and returned recently. The service was excellent and food was nice, though it didn't taste as good quality as it used to. The decor is exactly the same and looking rather tired. We enjoyed our meal but not enough to visit weekly like we used to.

Lovely buffet food experience. Food cooked fresh to order and great advice on what and how much to choose. Main course portions aren't huge but after starters and duck you don't need it! Great all round!!

Ordered the pre-set menu as that seemed to be more than sufficient and the buffet would have been too much to eat. Portions were average sized and good quality, Service was good too.

I came here for a family celebration a few weeks ago as we had not visited for several years and I had read some very good recent reviews. The place was nicely busy on a Saturday evening and we were welcomed warmly by staff. After ordering the food, it arrived quickly and the staff were very efficient. We had the... More

Went to celebrate our sons 18th birthday. There was 8 of us plus our 22month old grandaughter. The staff were lovely, playing her favourite 'Frozen' songs. Food and service was excellent. Definately go again. Thank you Kachina

I was working away from home and stumbled across this place last Monday. Had a very good experience. The two ladies who were serving were very helpful and friendly and made me feel very comfortable despite being on my own. The food was served very quickly and was hot and really delicious. I enjoyed it so much that I went... More

We stayed in the Regent's Park guest house in Southampton prior to a cruise and they recommended this place for an evening meal. We were happy with the quality of the food and the service was excellent. I did find the curry I had to be a little on the hot side for a Chinese meal but the flavour was... More
