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.

Dropped in last night for a solo curry. Everything about this restaurant smacks of quality. The friendly greeting is genuine and appreciated. Being a Tuesday in November the place was quiet however the tables were beautifully prepared with candles lit. I loved the free popodums with all the dips to start as well as the orange segments to finish. I... More

Always go to this curry house whenever I am in Pomortsmouth. The food is excellent and the service, even when busy is really good and friendly. Big portions that don't scrimp and the added bonus of free poppudoms.

Even though we had not booked and they were extremely busy we were found a table after a short wait. Unfortunately the reason a table became avsilable was due to a family leaving without ordering due to a loud foul mouthed customer . This customer continued with his loud rude crude and obnoxious behaviour without being asked to stop by... More

Went to the blue cobra after our car broke down nearby . We were looking for somewhere warm and with a toilet . In fact we had an excellent 2 course meal with attentive waiters and free liqueurs and chocolates 😃. Highly recommended.

By far the best Indian restaurant in Portsmouth. Food is always good and the service is very personal. Try their coffee next time, its amazing. Keep it up.

Attentive service. Tender lamb. Grossly overpriced though and rather bland. 12.50 for a lamb Pathia and this doesn't include rice. There really are better alternatives in terms of quality and price, especially for north end!

Cara and I, Meg, went to visit blue cobra last night, and my word it did NOT fail us! The restaurant itself for starters was absolutely gorgeous, the atmosphere was amazing with a true Indian feel to it. When we entered, we were created by such lovely staff members, who straight away showed us to our seat. When we sat... More
