I rarely now get the chance to visit Southampton, but when I do I always make sure to have a meal at Kohinoor. The meals are just full of flavours. I have tried quite a variety there as a regular visitor and each time has just been an experience. I have been to a few other indian restaurants in Southampton and in Birmingham, but none have even come near to the taste that you'd experience at Kohinoor of Kerala.
On my last visit I had Lamb Ulathiya Masala (as pictured) and I made sure that I did not leave any on my plate.
This is a great place to take anyone if you wish to impress them and not feel out of pocket.
One of the best things about this place is that everything is made fresh, so if you visit more than once (which I am sure you will once you have been) and order the same meal, it will not taste the same as the previous time. I have experienced this a few times and it's never a bad thing as it's wonderful to have the time and expertise of a chef from Kerala make these meals from scratch each time. This is even down to the little parts of your meals such as the Mango dip (which I absolutely love).
I just really wish that they could move the restaurant to Birmingham so I could have my weekly indian again.
