Tiger Lilly is located in the heart of trendy Bedford Place in the centre of Southampton. The stylish decor immediately transports you to somewhere that is neither China nor India, but is evocative of both: a great preparation for the culinary choices in store. The restaurant offers full Chinese and Indian menus, with two chefs from China and India doing the duties. There's also a popular buffet at £15.95, which includes 15 dishes from each tradition for the less decisive diner.

The welcome was warm and we were immediately shown to our table. The atmosphere at Tiger Lilly is relaxed and comfortable and, as you would expect, diners are encouraged to visit the buffet as many times as they like to try the selection on offer. We tried some items from the buffet and a couple of the chefs' specials. The buffet is packed full of the traditional favourites associated with most Chinese and Indian restaurants, but what sets Tiger Lilly apart is that it is re-stocked regularly, with smaller amounts of food than is common. This means that delights like chicken tikka, which can be prone to drying out on other buffets, are always succulent and delicious. The crispy aromatic duck from the buffet was also lovely, proffering just the right balance of soft and crispy. The highlight from our specials selections was the garlic chilli chicken, made in an authentic style with sliced garlic and halved chillies providing a spicy kick. The accompanying onion rice complemented the flavours perfectly and was equally gorgeous.

As you would expect from a restaurant set in a lively and trendy area like Bedford Place, Tiger Lilly's drinks menu is extensive and concentrates on high-quality, premium brands served in style. Service was relaxed, very friendly and contributed to a highly enjoyable evening spent exploring the finest flavours of The East.
