    Késarum (Kay-sir-rum; saffron in Sanskrit) on the QE2 Mile in Central Southampton showcases refined and creative plant-based Indian cuisine. Located in a Victorian era building, we offer an intimate and personalised culinary journey. Our style of service is relaxed; informal, yet correct.

    In dining with us, you will discover the endless possibilities of modern Indian cuisine, as we explore culinary styles from all over the Indian subcontinent. 

    Our menu changes roughly every six months, with particular focus on regional cuisines. Incorporating seasonality, and wherever possible, organic, local produce into our creations, we present an exceptional dining experience. Our current session explores Northern & Himalayan cuisine.

    Our venue is testament to how history and modernity, tradition and innovation, can converge on a single bite. Timeless classical Indian cuisine. We warmly invite you all to dine with us.
