    Food is incredible, would recommend to anyone. Only downside was two insanely large and loud tables (one of adults, one of kids) who made the experience a bit worse. It would have been nice if the staff had recognised this and asked them to be a bit quieter.

    A great new restaurant. As a veggie myself it was such a treat to have so much choice. I took a friend who wasn't vegetarian and she enjoyed it just as much. Lovely staff, very informative about the food, delicious food, would highly reccomend

    Absolutely phenomenal food in the most gorgeous restaurant with such attentive staff. The onion bhaji starter and puri’s were both so light and moreish. The smoky aubergine curry was delicious with the butter masala and fluffy naan. My mouth is watering thinking about the meal and writing this review - I honestly cannot wait to go back. A fantastic addition to the Southampton food scene

    Food was tasty and delicious. Service was a bit slow and the food came not steaming hot but just mildly hot so maybe it was just sat on the side for too long. Besides that, the vegan options were great and generally the menu options and everything we ate was very tasty. Maybe service just needs to get a lil better and it's almost a 5 star place ey

    Our small group wanted an Indian meal and booked based upon the positive reviews of your restaurant. We're all meat eaters, and were initially shocked to see we had inadvertently booked a vegetarian/vegan restaurant. We decided to give it a go nonetheless. I'm a convert! The meal was absolutely delicious and I didn't find myself missing meat options whatsoever. The rest of the group were also genuinely and positively surprised! If you're also dubious, give them a try. I'm sure you'll not be disappointed!

    Love the food here, service was really great and genuine. I made the mistake of thinking it was kids eat free between Christmas and new year, I must have read the email wrong. We did check this as we walked in but think there must have been some miscommunication because the waiter said yes but never mind. It hasn’t put us off. We’re all just doing the best we can with what we have. Will definitely eat here again.

    I had booked this a week in advance as a Christmas treat. When we arrived they KD us they were only doing a buffet but that bottomless drinks was included. So we decided to stay. We waited awkwardly at our table for plates. Eventually we were given two plates and the waiter walked away so we assumed we should go and get some food. The 1 container with starters in had 1 solitary spinach kebab in it. I had to ask them to refill the starters for us - this is despite being the only people in the restaurant at this point. We went back and sat down waiting to be informed they had refilled the starters. No one came so eventually again we went up to get food. The food was fine(although there was only a samosa or kebab to choose from). Nothing special but not bad. We then went up to get some mains. There were 3 vegan choices: a chilli, a veg curry and a dal. We loaded our plates up but when we sat down and started eating realised it was either stone cold or merely tepid. I had to take our plates back and tell them their food was cold. By this time there were other customers who were also saying the same. Instead of being apologetic they kept saying that they didn’t realise the candles had gone out under the containers and that they weren’t putting much food into the containers because they don’t like waste. I don’t like waste either, but not putting food into dishes when you’re serving a buffet is a bloody cheek. Also we noticed they were doing a lot of deliveroo type services whilst we were eating by and they were offering a full menu for that! When we finally managed to get some food that was half warm we decided we didn’t want another plate and wanted to leave. It had felt so awkward. They presented us with a bill for nearly £70!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They had charged us for drinks AND ADDED A SERVICE CHARGE!!!!! I don’t like writing bad reviews especially for new businesses that focus on vegan food, but I don’t know if we will risk eating here again.

    The only reason I have marked it down to a 4 on two categories is one, because it was a bit more expensive than we would normally pay, but it was delicious 😋. Definitely worth paying for a treat. And the other was our first waiter was a little sullen and insisted nothing I ordered was spicy, then, when it was served, it had chilli sauce on it (my mouth and throat blister if I eat spice); however, everyone else was lovely! We will definitely be back and it's definitely worth at least a 4.8 out of 5! Delicious!

    Right from arrival we felt looked after. All the waiting staff were friendly and helpful and could give advice on the menu. The food itself was well presented and tasty. So nice to be able to choose 90% of a menu as a vegan. We will return and recommend to others.

    We have visited Padharo twice. This time we have tried different dishes and we weren't disappointed. Everything was really delicious including the mango lassi. The menu offers many vegan or vegan option available and gluten free dishes. If you love Indian cruisine this is the perfect place to go.

    Restaurant is lovely with a great ambiance. It is clean and bright. The menu has a good selection of vegetarian food. Some of the dishes were spicier than expected though. A small observation is that the tables felt a little small and cramped, but this is an issue at other restaurants too. We found the restaurant to be quite expensive, so value wise it’s not particularly great.
