“Decent food great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

Next to Nelson Mandela square, was returning to this restaurant. They have the usual Indian fare plus exotic game meat like springbok tikka Masala etc. Ordered dal, chicken and wholewheat tandoori roti. On being asked level of spices, told him that make it Indian spice level. When the food came it was literally on fire but I ate without complaining. Overall good.

“quality meals and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Fresh quality food and great service, attention to details and professionalism. It was the first real meal for my daughter in South Africa since arriving from Germany. Good atmosphere for a family Lunch or dinner, great furnishings and a wide range of variety wines and beverages to quench the Jo'burg thirst. The staff was helpful and knew their products well.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Not entirely an easy restaurant to find, however a colleague recommended that it was worth finding as I really enjoy Indian food.
i noticed that the only people in the restaurant (at that time) were Indians so I realised that it was definitely worth trying.

Food was excellent. Standard Indian fare but portions size, quality and service was very good.

Will definitely come back again.
