Mixed feelings in writing this review. The food is very good and prepared correctly. However, the restaurant has no soul and because it is mostly empty there is little to provide atmosphere or authenticity. The fact that the waitresses seem bored is not helpful either. They need to invest in new interior, better trained and motivated staff, but make sure... More

I took a colleague and a customer for dinner on Nov 23, 2016. The fiorst thing that stuck me as odd was the fact they serve liquor but no whiskey. While we were trying to decide what starters we should order, the waiter suggested we order a kebab platter which would an assortment of kebabs. We took his advice and... More

In the past year, the quality Indian food that I've experienced in the past 10 years has completely disintegrated to stale food with too much chili and absolutely no flavour. The lamb pasanda was horrendous - the meat was spoilt and left a horrible after-taste. All of the paneer had a sour taste. The butter chicken was spicy, the chicken... More

Food is good. I was going for vegetarian stuff dal Makhani and various paneer dishes were very nice. Service varied. On some casts was very nice and on some other days very indifferent. I had to remind 3 times for papads which are normally served as a starter till your is ready. I ate there on many days dinner during... More

Hard to find a decent curry at the best of times so Bukara delivers on that. It is over-priced though.

I ordered garlic chicken for starters, pudina paratha, chicken lababdar and chicken biryani. I haven't tasted chicken that was doused in garlic and tasted this bad ever. Secondly, biryani was very average. Next the paratha turned up tough to even tear and consume. The lababdar seemed ok. Over all food wise I would call it a disaster! The icing on... More

Was a bit disappointed with service and food quality. There are better Indian restaurants in Sandton which was a pity as we only went because our guest wanted halal. The prawns in the prawn curry were a bit soft and the paratha was thick and heavy. The deserts took ages to bring so overall very mediocre and the meal was... More

I love Dal Bukhara and always try to catch one if there is this restaurant nearby. Part of chain of Bukhara, this restaurant offers perfect ambiance for a quick business meet / lunch and dinner meets. there signature dish "Dal Bukhara" stands by the expectation. Pretty pricey, though!!
