Naz himself is a great ambassador for this extremely friendly yet utterly delicious local option. This Indian and Bangladeshi award-winning restaurant, is set in the heart of Romsey, making it a convenient option for a great quality takeaway. The head chef and his team provide an extensive choice of dishes, including succulent chicken, lamb, duck, meat, prawns and Bangladeshi freshwater fish – the latter of which is fantastic.
A team of highly experienced chefs really come to the fore here, with every dish a taste sensation. The Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine on offer is great.

They use recipes that have a history, and feature dishes that define what Indian food is about, namely their heritage. All their dishes our prepared daily on site in an authentic charcoal tandoori oven – one of the few on the south coast.
Coriander Lounge, Southampton
The management of Coriander Lounge opened this restaurant to try and restore the lost primordial authenticity of Indian cuisine. The food here shares the same ancient, traditional cooking techniques and ingredients that originally made Indian food so different and delicious. If you choose to eat in, the service here is nothing short of superb, but the manner in which you are greeted on the phone is always equally welcoming and efficient. Talk to any local and this place comes highly recommended – if you’re from around here and haven’t tried it, what are you waiting for?
