An unexpected takeaway in our hotel room, when my wife was taken unwell, and a great find - the food was excellent. The chicken jalfrezi had a real depth of flavour and was spiced to my taste (nice to be asked how I like it) and the other accompaniments were very flavoursome. Enjoyed on our balcony with a great view... More

The food at this centrally positioned restaurant is the genuine article. But lack of attention is starting to show its crown slipping. Quality is very good but inconsistent, the decor is dreary, the ambience dull and the service obliging. However there is no sign of a firm hand on the rudder. Meanwhile the staff, especially in the kitchen, run riot.... More

This restaurant is off the beaten track of the standard "tourist" food you get on the main waterfront. The food here was amazing, coming from the UK where we have great curry I was a little hesitant. The food was fresh and had tons of flavour. We had vegetarian so can't talk for the meat dishes but the veggie options... More

I st visit last year was good. Since then personnel has changed and truly, they couldn't care less about you, the food or anything else. There was very little difference between the curries and the Rogan Josh could very well have been the Buns Gosht. So : it was food. That's all... Disappointing

We dined here one evening during our stay in Hermanus. The place was empty when we arrived - not a good sign, but we persevered. The restaurant doesn't serve alcohol but is quite happy for customers to bring along their own beer or wine. The food was quite good and certainly value for money. No complaints.

I love indian food and this was one of the best I've had in a long time! Absolutely delcious paneer makhani. We had slight troubles finding this place though because tripadvisor hasn't updated the right location of this place on its map. Just punch in the adress into your normal navigation app :) Definitely worth a visit!

At the restaurant, both the owners, Mr. Malik & his Begum ( as he calls his wife) are very hospitable and take personal interest in seeing the their patrons are comfortable and at ease and really go all the way to make the patrons fell they are Mr. Maliks personal guests. The food's great and has the taste of home.... More

We went to Hermanus on a day trip and spotted Tikka Palace quite accidentally as their sign is stuck to the building on first floor and we did not spot any signage on the foot path level. The owner was very welcoming,. The food was tasty and the service was good. We were disappointed they did not have any paneer... More

Very nice Indian Cuisine. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly owners & staff. You get decent sized portions without having to pay an arm and a leg.

We initially landed here to have Chai like we make at home. Ended up ordering chai and pakoras. It was perfect comfort food in chilly weather. Followed that up the next day with a visit for lunch. Dal Tadka and Chicken Jalfrezi were on our minds, and this place did not disappoint. Budget around 25-30 mins for your food to... More
