“Tasty and authentic Indian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

I spent a lot of time reviewing Indian restaurants before settling on Vintage India and I wasn't disappointed. The extensive menu was impressive and when our food came, no one was disappointed. The curries were expertly spiced and the flavors mixed perfectly. It's located a short walk from safe and busy Florida Road. The ambiance definitely leaves something to be desired and the restaurant itself could use some TLC, but it in no way spoiled the wonderful food.

“Don't judge the book by the cover...great Indian food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

Although the restaurant's decor is a bit outdated, we went here as we had heard good reviews from friends, and we were not disappointed at the end of our dinner!
The menu is huge, there is a lot to chose from but the friendly staff helped us out with some suggestions otherwise we could probably never had our minds made up.
We enjoyed a selection of Indian starters, curries, rice and breads and found everything to be deliciously and freshly prepared and very reasonable priced.

“great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

Although the place doesn't look very welcoming, the food was really delicious. We had a veg starter plate and 1 mains each. We couldn't even finish it but had the leftovers the next day. It's not the cheapest restaurant, but I'd say it's medium price by Durban/SA standards.
The restaurant seems to be located in a safe neighbourhood and we were told that we can walk their even at night (and did it).

“Indo-Chinese Specialist”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

The setup is a bit dated and its slightly off the beaten path but it is without a doubt excellent in Indo-Chinese cuisine. Be sure to try the schezwan sauce for the brave and the paneer (cottage cheese) Manchurian basket. Well priced, good portions and basmati fried rice complimentary with meals.
