Have tried other Indian Restaurants in Romsey but always end up back at the Purbani. Best food and atmosphere of them all - for both couples or families. You cannot go wrong eating here.

The Purbani in Romsey is simply the best Indian restaurant in Romsey and indeed my favourite anywhere. I've been coming here for years and every time your made to feel just as welcome,it's almost like going to have a meal with family as all the staff there are so friendly,they make a point of getting to know who you are so on a return visit you're welcomed by name,a lovely touch. Having never really been a curry person or indeed 'hot' food I first visited with trepidation,however after I needn't of worried as after informing them of my allergic ness to coconut they suggested a dish that I would enjoy without fear of 'blowing my head off!' I DID thoroughly enjoy it,so much so that many years later it still is my dish of choice and now is affectionately known by all the staff as 'Macca's green curry!!' No need to ever ask what I want anymore,it just arrives!! In short the food is beautiful,having taken friends there that are far more curry connoisseurs than i am everyone have commented on how that was one of if not the best Indian meals they've ever had,high praise indeed. The surroundings are beautifully decorated,especially after a recent refurbishment,and last but not least,in fact possibly the most is the staff,i defy you not to love these guys,so,so friendly they are absolutely fantastic!Don't take my word for it though,get yourself down there and enjoy it for yourself.....

Wow Purbani was busy - was just buzzing .... We've been here numerous times and its always good so we were pleased to see them being so popular even during hard times.

Very wide range off the menu...some special dishes need 24hrs notice...but we often go for a pre configured meal for "x" people and have never been let down.

Staff are friendly - the boss keeps a close eye on service and always finds time to chat.

Family chain - Botley, Romsey, Stockbridge. Been around for 20+ years.

Really good food, attentive waiters and pleasant surroundings with easy parking in the centre of Romsey. The free sambouka at the end made suree I left with a smile on my face. Happy with price too.
