If you like indian food, this is the place to go. Do not come if you don't like curry. Curry is what they do. (Baring the obligatory chips relegated to the bottom of the menu, that poor genuine restaraunts like this can't get away with ommiting in this country. If you want chips, that's fine. Don't come to an indian... More

Yet another visit to the Kali mirchi and yet another fantastic meal, the staff are so friendly and helpful and the food is just amazing. Subtle changes to the dishes ensure that you are never going to be bored with having the same dish time after time or you could just trust the boss when he suggests something new. We... More

This is the best Indian cuisine I have ever had and can't see it being beaten. Have eaten here several times and had takeaway, excellent every time. This visit was for my brother's 50th and a table of 20 or so. The staff looked after us and I also noticed that other tables weren't neglected. The food was excellent as... More

I was staying overnight and fancied an " Indian" meal. The guest house kindly recommended Kali Mirch on the high street. I ordered plain rice and plain Naan: the Naan was large and had the right amount of butter. The chicken balti was generous : the chicken was quality meat and not skewer slices as is sometimes the case elsewhere.... More

I have eaten in and had quite a few take aways now. The food is absolutely amazing. Every time has been as good as ever. Never fails to disappoint. So much effort goes into these dishes, you can tell with every mouthful.

A great restaurant serving large portions and very tasty food. We arrived a little early and although the restaurant was not full, the staff had to make some adjustments to seat us immediately. Drinks orders and food orders were taken promptly. Having finished our starters we waited around an hour for our mains. This could be because dishes are cooked... More

Great place for a reasonably priced lunch buffet. You get a starter, a selection of main dishes and a coffee or ice cream all for a very good price. The quality is good, and service friendly. Definitely recommended.
