“Classic South African Bunny Chow, Durban's Finest Curry and great service in the heart of Cape Town”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

What a find! This is a great spot to visit to get a taste of real Durban curry and try the classic South African dish: Bunny Chow (curry served in a quarter loaf of bread). Coupled with the fact that this spot is in a gorgeous suburb of Cape Town, and it's great service, this is a must visit restaurant for locals and foreigners alike. Family run, easy to get to, great food and service: Don't miss Vandiar's! Also in walking distance from the National Gallery, National Museum and famous Kloof and Long Street. Enjoy!

“Tasty and friendly”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

My new favourite curry restaurant. The tastiest curries you would ever come across, coupled with warm service that makes you feel like part of family makes this a definite spot to check out.

“Amazing food, amazing people & affordable”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

This place is amazing! I had the Butter Chicken and being a avid Curry fan i can tell you that it was a good one. The restaurant it still very new so you can see there are one or two things that are still being organised in the venue but the food will distract even the most critical diner.
Downstairs is very cozy but can be a little chilly in winter. Upstairs has a wood burning fire going which heats the place up wonderfully but is a little brighter lite then downstairs.
Upon arrival you will be greeted by the charming local staff and catch a eyeful of the husband and wife owners / chefs cooking in the kitchen. In short i would highly recommend this restaurant to self-professed curry lover!

“Outstanding Durban curry, casual setting”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

The butter curry was one of the best we Durbanites have ever had. The freshly made roti was also outstanding. We'll be back but will order double portions next time.
