My wife and I have visited the Kohinoor about 80 times during the last 3 years. The Kohinoor stands out above anything else that we have tried in Hampshire. We both cook and we both understand food. Last night we had: Rasam soup, excellent. Vegetable mixed platter. Like savoury sweets, totally divine. Buttered chicken. This is the real thing, not... More

They folks at Kohinoor make you feel relaxed and at home. The food is fantastic and like no other Indian cuisine I've had before. The ingredients taste fresh, tender, and flavourful in all the right ways. Though the drink offer and space are limited, this is a must for all Indian food lovers visiting Southampton!

We are regulars here for both meals in and takeaways. This is our favourite Indian restaurant due to the friendly staff and brilliant food. We are always made to feel very welcome and have never been disappointed with the food. The curries are fresh and very tasty. Salmon Tikka is a particular favourite! The fact that this restaurant is always... More

As ever the food in the Kohinoor was delicious. The good thing is that this is consistently the case. Well priced and some quite unusual choices on the menu.

Visited on a Saturday night - the restaurant was full but the service was as fantastic as usual, and the food was great. The menu has a lot of choice, especially for vegetarians, and is full of dishes you don't see on the average menu. Everything was fresh, perfectly cooked, and the peshwari naan is incredible! Very busy on a... More

The Kohinoor is a small (dare I say it cosy) restaurant with very friendly staff. We were a group of 7 eating on a bank holiday Monday. It felt like the food did take a while to arrive but the restaurant was quite busy and it operates a takeaway service too so could explain the delay (plus the size of... More

Was expecting great things from the previous reviews on Trip Advisor. Three of us wanted a quick dinner before a concert at The Brook, just down the road. Initial signs were good; buzzing with people, early on Friday evening. As time went on we found the service to be haphazard and very slow. The food was very disappointing; dry and... More

Lovely evening spent at the Kohinoor with excellent food and great atmosphere. Staff were so lovely and friendly and made us feel very welcome. If we are in Southampton again will be booking a table for sure.
