We had noticed that every evening we passed this place it appeared full. As we had tried Kuti's on Oxford Street a few times and were well satisfied each time, we wanted to check out this restaurant too. The restaurant is on two levels, a ground floor and basement. So when you book, insist on the ground floor, as the... More

Excellent menu, crisp service (there was ten of us) and the food was delicious. Busy, bustling atmosphere inside, clearly a local fave

Having visited many Indian restaurants throughout the country (Indian being my favourite) and having read the reviews we tried the Coriander Lounge. Good move, the food stands head and shoulders above the rest, with friendly service from waiters who were happy to explain the dishes we could not complain. Try the Karai. We will return.

I had heard good reviews for this place and was looking forward to visiting. This place gets busy and I would imagine you need to book. This created a buzzing atmosphere for within which to enjoy a delicious meal. The food was well presented and tasty. The service was good and staff efficient.

Stopped in after the theatre, the service was okay but howeve, when the food arrived two of the meals were NOT as expected. The Balti sauce was a madras and the chicken shashlik was a complete disaster as was too hot and spicy and really salty. The staff did knock £5 off the bill. But the remaining 2 meals were... More

We come here for birthday meals, small gatherings and quite often. It can get very busy, so definitely book in advance. The quality and consistency in their service and food is always spot on. The atmosphere is very lively and super busy. We get treated very well being a regular customer and since the start. We always leave here feeling... More

Great little restaurant right in the middle of Southampton. Very helpful and chatty staff and good value for money. The meal was the best Indian meal I have ever eaten and although we were only there for one night would definitely go back again if I were to visit Southampton.

Family recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. Great range of traditional dishes as well as their own specials - all amazingly tasty and well timed in their arrival. Great range of decent wines by the glass and bottle which is pleasing to see in an Indian restaurant Staff attentive but not over-bearing - a super night out and we'd... More

Shame. Very poor customer relations Will never return!! Never again. Yeah they offered to take the drinks off the final bill, However the staff had ruined the whole meal and we left ashamed without eating most of if the food we had ordered. Shame on the whole team including the manager who I tried to speak to without any reasonable... More

We thought we would try this place and we were really impressed with the buffet service that is offered downstairs. It was a Saturday evening and it is recommended to book in advance as it is really busy and a popular venue. The staff were really friendly and we could not fault the service - a top choice in Southampton... More
