Great meal. Best curry for some time. First visit and will definitely be back.
Fantastic meal to celebrate my sons graduation Staff where lovely I would definitely go back it in Winchester again.
The food was amazing! And the staff were very friendly. Excellent experience.
Very enjoyable birthday treat for grandson. Lovely surprise for him was the dessert with a candle and music on the house!
I am glad you have asked for feedback on our visit to Rimjhim last night. Of the party of 8, none of us had issues with our food when it eventually arrived. From ordering, it was an hour before we got our food - it was only main courses and rice so not a complex order. It wasn't particularly busy - I noticed that everyone who was dining seemed to be shoved into one corner of the room. Our table was right next to the fire exit door and it was absolutely freezing in there - a draft coming through the door. I had to keep a large scarf around me all evening and the others were cold too. The man who seemed to be in charge was helpful in that he helped us put up a birthday banner (it was a 21st birthday celebration) and he assisted us in bringing out a cake we had bought. However none of the staff seemed very cheerful, in particular the lady who served us who was downright rude. When we got our bill, we checked it and had been charged for two pints of Cobra we did not have. We were all very careful to keep on eye on who had what as we were splitting the bill but when paying, the member of staff actually argued this with my partner. I have not been to Rimjhim for a few years but used to go a lot when I worked in Winchester and I am sad to say it really has gone downhill. Also your website shows a deal of 2 meals for £22 which includes Thursdays however this was not offered to us - we were just given the normal menu. That's not really right. So I am giving the 3 for the food but nothing else.
It seemed very quiet for a Saturday night but the waiters were attentive without being intrusive and the food was good and very reasonably priced indeed. I have only given four stars as even though it wasn’t busy we were not once asked if we wanted more drinks despite there being enough staff there, so they lost money by that and we only ended up having one drink each. I know we could of asked ourselves for more but I really don’t think you should have to. Also I really hate it when people start cleaning up around you before you have finished, especially getting mops and buckets out. Would I go again when in Winchester? Probably........but there are soooooo many other places to try that looked like they were bustling and had a good atmosphere, but i’ll put it down to the fact it was quiet because Eurovision was on.
We went for our Christmas do on 13th December, we have been before and it was good. This time it was pretty awful. The main problem was the man in charge who spent the evening barking instructions at us and utterly ruined the occasion. The young serving staff were very sweet, and the food was okay, not great, but at least the plates were warm, which was more than could be said of the atmosphere. There were three Christmas menus and despite us asking we couldn't pre-book, then when we got there we were told that we all had to pick the same menu, and we had to battle to get the cheaper option. It was bizarre. We constantly had to look for staff to get service. When the bill came we had to send it back 3 times to correct wrongly charged items. There was absolutely no Christmas atmosphere and it was so cold in there that we left before having our "free coffee". We will not go back.
The food was really good. Waitress who took orders needs to learn a bit more about the dishes as she couldn’t help with explaining except to repeat what was already on menu. It would have been better if all main meals had arrived together for a table of 8 instead of few minutes waiting. The young waiters serving food were excellent very polite and helpful. Maitre d was very nice and helpful and happy to move us to a different table when we asked.
This is easily the best indian restaurant in Hampshire. Everything is perfect, the decor is fantastic & modern, the staff are very welcoming & the quality of food is second to none. With a very extensive menu which includes water buffalo locally sourced, you will struggle to find a better place to taste authentic indian cuisine.
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.
