As an avid Indian Food Lover, there is no better place in Cape Town to get authentic Indian cuisine, at really affordable prices, I took the family and the in laws who also enjoy a good Butter Chicken / Korma to this great spot to celebrate my birthday, we were not disappointed.

Very good starters, slightly expensive. Good meal portion sizes. Suited for business and family meetings.

We just dropped in at the spur of the moment and they had a table ready. Service was excellent and pompadoms was served as we sat down with a trio of sambles. The food was order and served with 10 minutes..Fresh and aromatic. Big portions...so come hungry.

Lots of choice, lots of service, well cooked Indian food. We were a business group and as usual over-ordered. Naan, rice, chicken masaala, paneer shashlik, mutton. All tasy and well cooked and served reasonably fast. Attentive staff

We are always served with delicious curries here.. The service is also good. The taste has been always consistent. The only issue is they have limited menu for Desserts and sometimes the options on the menu are also not available. Else no other issues. Do visit this place if you are looking for authentic Indian food. Do book in advance... More

Best part was the food. We had lamb curry options, although it is pricey and took long it was worth the and money.

The service is good and attentive, and the food authentic, with large portions for biryani. The seafood curry was bland though and disappointing.

Recently ate here with some friends. The food was average in my opinion. The Naan was quite thin and the while the curry was definitely hot, the flavor wasn't as good as i had hoped it would be. It is conveniently located next to the Southern Sun Newlands hotel, which was nice, but it is nothing to write home about...

This was recommended as a great Curry house. As I was staying in the Hotel it was very convenient, so I gave it a try. The food was average and the service was also average. Perhaps it was an aftermath of a very busy previous night.

Thank Borrieboy
