I was staying overnight and fancied an " Indian" meal. The guest house kindly recommended Kali Mirch on the high street. I ordered plain rice and plain Naan: the Naan was large and had the right amount of butter. The chicken balti was generous : the chicken was quality meat and not skewer slices as is sometimes the case elsewhere.... More

I have eaten in and had quite a few take aways now. The food is absolutely amazing. Every time has been as good as ever. Never fails to disappoint. So much effort goes into these dishes, you can tell with every mouthful.

A great restaurant serving large portions and very tasty food. We arrived a little early and although the restaurant was not full, the staff had to make some adjustments to seat us immediately. Drinks orders and food orders were taken promptly. Having finished our starters we waited around an hour for our mains. This could be because dishes are cooked... More

Great place for a reasonably priced lunch buffet. You get a starter, a selection of main dishes and a coffee or ice cream all for a very good price. The quality is good, and service friendly. Definitely recommended.

The location isn't where you would expect to find such a good restaurant. We have been there several times and have never failed to be impressed with the flavours of the curries, each one carefully prepared with a distinctive blend of spices that warms you all over. Not the stodgy curry stew. Service was always five star but it has... More

It was a surprise to find this hidden gem on Shirley high street. Had a buffet at first visit which was worth every penny I spent on it. The curries were nice but my highlight is the naan which was fresh, fluff and delicious. I came back for second visit and had Biryani which was very authentic and best I've... More
