We have been looking for a replacement since our favourite Indian restaurant in Southsea shut some months ago. We have tried everywhere and have been hugely disappointed everytime. For some reason we hadn't tried Blue Cobra, probably because it's located in North End and thought because of that it would be bad. How wrong we were! The food was ready... More

I ordered a takeaway from blue cobra on a Saturday night, it was delivered quickly in less than 40minutes. The food was hot when it arrived and smelt amazing. The ingredients were obviously fresh and the curry tasted amazing. I will definitely be ordering from here again as it was delicious. The price was also very reasonable especially considering the...

We happened upon this restaurant on wednesday night when stranded in what is one of the shabby areas near the channel port. We chose it first because it looked like the only comfortable looking restaurant in the street, and the only one with any diners in it. We were surprised to find that it was indeed clean,comfortable,warm and modern inside.... More

Very enjoyable and tasty food - all 4 of us very happy with big, tasty portions. Great touch was to bring up popadoms and all condiments curtesy of the management as soon as we arrived... More

Booked an early 5.30pm table for 8 (xmas do). Can recommend starters shahee mixed kebab, vegetable stuffed pepper and king prawn butterfly. Mains went down well can recommend Garlic chillies king prawn, Goan chicken, zhal naga chicken was more like a naga chicken. Lamb Balti I would NOT recommend, they got this completely wrong. Served (not cooked) in a small... More

Fantastic food. But the service was very slow waited 45 mins for food . If you are going to go to this restaurant probably best to go during the week when not busy.
