About Rimjhim Indian Restaurant

Rimjhim Indian Restaurant can’t be accused of lacking confidence. They don’t settle for calling their kitchen staff chefs – they’ve named them “food artists”. It isn’t hard to see why. They use only the best in natural and local ingredients and then ally them to time-honoured cooking techniques and authentic recipes that bring out the very best in the dishes. Their list of house specialities long and repeat visits are required to make the most of it. Go for their house signature, Rimjhim Chicken, which includes leg and breast cooked on the bone with a chef’s special masala spice mix and saffron rice, or the lamb Shahjahani, in a fiery sauce with garlic and citrus. Veggies will be spoiled for choice and all the classic curries are there for if you are feeling conservative: there is truly something for everyone. Just remember to book ahead, as they have been known to fill up at times and you wouldn’t want to miss out on what they have to offer down on City Road in Winchester town centre.

Friendly, helpful staff and delicious food. We booked a table for lunch before attending the theatre around the corner. Couldn’t ask for more in terms of location and menu.

Superb Modern Indian Cuisine. The service, presentation and food itself were second to none. I've been eating Indian food since the age of about 12 or 13 and I'm now 57. This a la carte meal was right up there with them.

Lovely evening! Food, as always was beautifully presented and tasted great. The staff were very attentive, polite and friendly. No complaints at all. My favourite Indian Restaurant.

Food was very good for all 6 of us. My steamed seabass was unusual and delicious. Disappointed as we had specifically requested the round table many weeks ago and it had been allocated to a party. We would have like to have known about this before hand. Very polite staff though there was some muddle up about the order - was sorted out without fuss just meant not everything arrived at the same time.

Shocking service on Bonfire night. We arrived 15 minutes early for our booking at 8:45. We were a part of 6. It was already very busy when we got there. We were waiting about 20 minutes before we were asked if we wanted poppadoms that took at least another 15 minutes to arrive. We ordered 2 each but they arrived in small pieces and we all agreed the portion felt more like 1each. Our drinks order was taken after we had the poppadoms and we were served the wrong order. It took the waiter four attempts to get 2 cokes 2 lemonades and 2 glasses of water for us! The jug of water arrived with dipping sauce smeared on the inside which took about 10 minutes to replace. We ended up receiving our main course at 10:50pm ahead of the table sat next to us who had arrived before us so as you can imagine they were up in arms. To their credit their food was delicious but we were starving so probably would have thought any food at that hour was wonderful! Paying the bill was another slow and drawn out process and we’re repeatedly ignored. We didn’t end up leaving until 11:45. We we’re reuniting with old university friends and this dinner spoiled what was supposed to have been a happy memorable ocassion. Sadly spoiled by their rudeness and poor service. We will not be returning and recommend you go somewhere else. We usually go to the Chinese Mr So. Go there - they’re outstanding!

Pre-theatre early evening supper - the 'specials' menu had a set meal for 2 for £22, consisting of a choice of two starters to share, then both a chicken dish and lamb dish. The meal was excellent value, and although the choices were limited, the food was delicious.

Surprisingly quiet when we arrived. It soon got busier. There was a good selection of food to choose from and the buffet was kept topped up. Great value. Will definitely visit again.

Food was good. Took long time to get served main meal. Far to noisy for all of us. Couldn`t here our selves talk. Had to shout at each other to make conversation. Big let down. Not to sure if we will go there again due to this. A shame as food was good.

Rimjhim is a modern, attractive restaurant. The waiting staff are polite and attentive and the menu offers lots of interesting and more unusual options. The food was delicious with great service.
