About Us

Our Food

Késarum [kay-sir-rum( केसरम् )] meaning “saffron” in Sanskrit is a modern plant-based bistro and bar. Daring to defy perceptions of Indian, vegan and vegetarian dining, we re-invent flavours with contemporary flare for herbivores, carnivores and omnivores alike. We warmly invite you to allow us to take you on a sensory journey. As we explore the boundlessness of modern Indian cuisine, we promise to create vibrant culinary art that contains authentic flavours, is respectful to tradition, yet incredibly balanced to the palate.


Our Venue

Once a former bank during the 1800s, we are in a grade II heritage building located on the QE2 Mile in central Southampton, an area exploding with history and culture. Consistent with our mission of sustainability, our dining area consists of a huge amount of upcycled antique furniture and sustainably sourced timber; our bar even used to be a church altar. A truly fantastic location for dates, intimate celebrations and indelible sensory experiences!

We look forward to welcoming you, hosting you and sharing with you, the Késarum experience.
