This is a great curry house, good food, good choice of options on the menu with some excellent specials. Occasionally there is the odd rude impatient waiter but not a reason to avoid.

My curry that I had ordered was cold, no one came to check while eating if our food was all ok. When I told him that it was cold at the end the waiter completely ignored me and was talking to my husband about it instead of me. We were a group of 11 friends and everyone else seemed to... More

Great no nonsense curry house. Staff are friendly, pressed linen napkins, and the food is very good. Visited twice on a work trip - very happy both times.

Curry night and Family gathering all different dishes were had and shared. Everyone enjoyed their food. Only small wish is that in the chicken dishes be all chicken breast. Otherwise a very good night for all eight of us

Very disappointed with the visit felt rushed and the food was not spectacular. We have eaten at this restaurant in the past but I must say that the standards have fallen from our previous visits.

We've eaten here many times and always had excellent food. We had a take away last week and it was extremely disappointing. The curry had no flavour and the Nan bread was like cardboard. I feel it was just heated up from the previous day. This is such a shame as usually the food is excellent.

Food good quality and a lot of it for your money. Surprised to get 4 Onion Bhaji in a starter for one. Nearly full before the main course arrived. Pilau rice subtly flavoured, chicken madras - full bodied. Beer by tge pint much cheaper than bottled. Staff friendly and efficient.

I have eaten at the Purbani on a number of previous occasions, and had good food and service. However, this has always been mid-week. Last Saturday I visited with friends (who had not been before) for a special occasion. I had told them to expect a good time and good food. What a disappointment! First of all the entrance was...

Just had a meal here, poor service, rude staff who would rather talking to each other whilst taking our order, very rude and when starter arrived it was wrong, suggest they listen to their customers and read back what has been ordered. Main meals were also disappointing, Luke warm food, even the Nan bread was cold. Also very slow service... More

My partner and I came here in the evening as most places in Romsey were already fully booked or closed. I'm glad we did though because the food was great. I had the chicken karahi and the Bombay potatoes, which were both great, and afterwards we had some coffee. The atmosphere of the restaurant is elegant but cosy enough to... More
