It's unclear from the website whether this restaurant is open tonight or not: and the voicemail greeting - which I think has something to say about opening - is completely muffled and inaudible. Please clarify online and re-record the phone greeting message so (potential) customers...understand what is happening !More

Not authentic taste. Not a great service and taste. Family wise not very friendly. Not many vegetarian options. I will not go again.

I love the food here but I was so disappointed in the covid precautions, which were non existent. The waiter refused to wear his mask as he "can't breathe" and he "didn't like the visors". We pointed out it was not about him and he...laughed. He said he does not have covid so it's ok. It's not ok. No one took our details so we can't be traced if someone gets covid. They took an age to take our payment as the waiter kept doing other tasks even though someone was waiting for Our table. Standards are slipping and this is so lazy in a pandemic.More

Coriander has quickly become our favourite curry house on Albert Road. We have been there many times this year and have never had a bad curry. The food is always delicious. We’ve enjoyed Jeera Kata Garlic Chicken, Jalfrezi, Lamb Handi Gosht and Makhani Chicken as...well as others I can’t remember! The service is friendly and BYOB is a bonus with a co-op just across the road. Perfect for a couple or with friends!More

The food was very good, fresh, flavoursom and good value. Being able to bring your own alcohol makes the bill cheaper. Thank goodness for coop opposite. Not the most plushish of restaurants and we nearly left on walking in, but glad we didn't as the...food was really good.More

First time here.... but definitely coming back. The service is very friendly and welcoming. The food was fresh, tasty and looked lovely. My veggie dansak was one of the best I've had, and my mums salmon was delicious. Can't wait to come back and try...more dishes.More

I’ve always loved Coriander for a great night out. The food is always delicious (especially the salmon), the staff make you feel welcome, the prices are really good and you can take your own wine. More recently due to lockdown restrictions, I’ve ordered takeaway from...them. The service continues to be something special with prompt delivery and a friendly face arriving at the door. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant which does Southsea proud.More

We got a very warm (socially-distanced) welcome from waiter Sol. The tables were well-spaced and the restaurant super-clean with hand gel available. We had Onion Bhaji which was cooked to perfection and drizzled with tomato and chilli sauces and also salmon starter I cant remember...the name of but was delicious. They do a huge range of great starters including seafood ones which I haven't seen in other restaurants. For mains, we had Lamb tikka Masala, Tarka Daal with Aloo Gobi sides and basmati rice. All was cooked fresh and was delicious - not floating in oil! I am very fussy about Indian food and don't think there are that many good ones tbh. But Coriander is fantastic - don't be put off by the unassuming exterior! Just to mention again that Sol is an excellent waiter! Oh and not to forget - its BYOB!More

Not my usual restaurant choice for Bangladeshi and Indian food but has done a great service during lock down. The meals are very good and great value. Once this Covid malarky is all over I will definitely be visiting for a sit down meal here....The ability to bring your own alcohol and with a co-op directly opposite to buy it from this makes it even more cost effective.More

We were attending a talk at Andark just down the road from here, we wanted an Indian open early enough to not be late for the talk and convenient. All that worked, but the standard of food was an unexpected bonus, would certainly return here!
