“Excellent food”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We visited the Vintage after many years and we were not disappointed. The service was great and the recommendations of the staff was very good.

As we were in a group we were encouraged to share as the portions are generous. I tried the triple veg schezwan and the food was succulent (but a bit too spicy). All our guests enjoyed the food and the dessert

Highly recommneded

“One of the best if not the best in Durban.”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

Having recently moved to Durban, we have been searching for a good Indian restaurant. Having tried a couple, I can confidently say that Indian Connection serves some of, if not the best Indian Cuisine in Durban.

I would however love for this restaurant to spend some time and money on the decor to bring it in line with the quality and taste of their menu.

The restaurant is neat and clean inside, but the decor is basic apart from some authentic indian portraits hanging on the walls.

Overall really great food, very good service and a neat and clean establishment. More potential to make this THE BEST INDIAN RESTAURANT IN SOUTH AFRICA!

“Low key but excellent food”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We just arrived in Durban and decided to have dinner at the Vintage Restaurant near the Florida Street neighborhood. We both ate vegetarian tonight with great results. Ramesh our waiter did an excellent job with guiding us through the menu. The food was delicate and delicious. The three dishes, starter, drinks, and dessert were reasonably priced at $30 for two of us. I definitely would recommend that you have a meal at Vintage.

“Great food good value avoid the cocktails”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

As this restaurant was in a very nice walking distance to our hotel, the concierge, we decided to giv it a try. The ambience is a bot rustic and outdated but neverthelsse clean. They do offer seating on the veranda and have a large room inside which can get a little bit cool.

If you are in an indian restaurant it is always a good sign when a lot of indians come in so you knwo you get the real stuff and so we did.

As a starter you get some papadam with three sauces, be careful with the hot one, it is a hot one (I have eaten Thai food in Thailand). The menu is huge much to choose form but they also offer platters for the vegetarian and nonvegetarion appetizers. We had the veg platter and I must say I was amazed. Real tasty, lots of different things and a portion that alone would have been enough. Of course nevertheless we went for some curries and here it was the same. Very good taste, good quality, well prepared and a more than generous portion.

The staff was also friendly and helpful and we had a nice time.

So we left very satisfied especially considering the prices. One thing though: They do have a list of cocktails on the table. Do not bother.
