We first had a "take away". We enjoyed the food so much that we went back the next week and had our meal in the restaurant that time. Excellent service. The staff were friendly and answered any questions concerning our food selection.

I was excited to have a nice Indian meal and that's what I got ! Apart from the Pashwari Naan which was an attempt to be one but not great. I tend to order my favourite dishes as I don't like to make a mistake, so Lamb Pasanda , Basmati rice and the odd naan was good. The waiters were... More

After 4 quite good visits, the 5th will be the last one ever...Low season, nobody there except us, 9 pax. From the beginning we felt not very welcome, the food was ok, but the service, no no no.

It is always difficult judging a restaurant on a wet night in November but the staff at Kohinoor did nothing to help this unfortunately. A TV screen showing football matches from last night lacked inspiration. Some members of staff walking through the restaurant dressed in horribly scruffy clothes and then the non-appearance of the waiter unless you shouted for him... More

Such fantastic service and food. Our server was a young man named Surmukh. He was very patient with us as we chose our food. When it came out, it was so freshly made. Absolutely amazing cooks there. Would totally go again:)

We were going to Sao Simon based on Trip Advisor ratings but they were closed for the holiday. Lucky us. Kohinoor is 2 doors away. Lunch on the sidewalk outside with very little traffic. Shrimp in a slightly spicy sauce over perfect rice. Wish there was Kohinoor where I live

The food is very, very good. The desert list is to small, almost inexistent. And no coffee:( As restaurant is a bit poor the food is great. PS. You must love spice.
