Lakaz Maman

Opened in 2016 by MasterChef winner Shelina Permallo, Lakazmaman is an incredible Mauritian restaurant come cafe. The menu skilfully blends zesty citrus flavours with African traditional curries in a way that has been described as ‘sunshine on a plate?. Among our favourite dishes are the ‘Mauritian octopus and pineapple’ the house Cari’s (curry), and the sticky corn pops with tamarind and chilli. For the price and flavour this restaurant is our top pick in Southampton, and it’s also only a 4-minute walk from our Guesthouse. If you are only going to visit one restaurant in Southampton this is the one!
