An old friend was over here from New Zealand so we opted for the Kasturi as we had heard good reports but had never actually been there. We went on the Tuesday after the May bank holiday and, not surprisingly, it was a wee bit quiet. Our party of four were warmly welcomed, and whilst we deliberated on the menu, a round of draught Cobra beers was soon delivered to the table. The menu is quite comprehensive but does not include any beef or pork dishes. The waiters were extremely friendly and extremely tolerant as we took for ever to decide. We started with the lime, pickle and chutney dips with crisp fresh poppodams. We also ordered a chicken chat starter, and I would suggest that anyone who wants just a light meal, orders this as a main course. It was delicious and all four of us got to try it. Two portions of rice was ample to go with the main courses. We ordered chapatis and nan bread and all arrived fresh and warm. The staff were very attentive and the Cobra beer just kept coming. We had time to chat to the waiters, who all spoke excellent English, and they told us that the chef was from Bangladash. He was a credit to that nation, his culinary skills left nothing to be desired ! A great night out, good friends, good food, a pleasant atmosphere and the bill didn't break the bank ! Will be going back again soon.

I recently dined at The Kasturi, Southport, with a friend and we were both impressed by both the food and service. The chicken pakora starter was excellent and the chicken bhuna main course was very tender. Overall, a very enjoyable meal!

Use to go the ages ago, visited last night (Saturday), for about 30 min we're only customers what seemed weird for Saturday eve, got charged 2.75 for onions and 2 type of chutney for papa dams (never asked for it, just came in a bill ) , meat was like rubber (had kebab to start, keema curry and keema naan - all meat just stick in one pice and literally tasted like a rubber, was notossible even cut), curry seemed with no spice whatsoever and my saag was tasteless. Dissapointed :(

Received very attentive service, staff really went the extra mile for us. Great having Cobra on draft (we had plenty of it!!) My partner ordered something off the specials/recommendations part of the menu which had lamb tikka in it, the chef made it extra hot on request and my partner loved it. I ordered a monkfish curry for a change, but was disappointed in the fish, it was a little overcooked, and for the price, I wouldn't bother with it again. It's the second time we've been, and I would return, and just order a prawn curry like I did last time.
