Out with some colleagues for dinner. We had some great food and service with a smile. We were impressed by the quality of food with good taste. Prices are reasonable and the menu has a large variety of plates. Very friendly owner and staff. I know where to go when passing through Southampton next time.

My friends & I visited Kohinoor of Kerala after several months - a long absence indeed. And the warm welcome by Abraham & Kamal & the rest of the team, & the familiar delicious tastes set us right. The menu had changed - a few new dishes; & it had been smartened up too. But the excellence of the food... More

My nephew and I have decided to combine our travels following LFC with trying out as many Indian sub-continent cuisines as we can in 2017. This Kohinoor has a menu that is varied, but where the owner gave us good advice on what constitutes "real" Kerala ditched. We chose one with fish (Kerala Meen Curry, lovely favours) and one with...

We were surprised by the very busy room even on a cold midweek day. You can see is a local favourite. We tried many different starters, curries and naans and rices. It was all of great quality and fresh flavours. Service was efficient and quick. I wouldnt order wine again but everything else was outstanding. Will def return.

This restaurant is aptly named. Kohinoor is probably one of the most famous diamonds ever found and this restaurant is a real jewel. I have been visiting this restaurant, (firstly in Burgess Rd) and latterly in Portswood, ever since I first came to Southampton in 1994. The food is always first class and delicious. Abraham and Kamal and their staff... More
