We went with close family friends to dine at this so called "INDIAN RESTAURANT" The place was deserted as only 2 tables were occupied out of 50-60. The service was pathetic, had to send kids to call the waiters. The manager was probably hiding in the kitchen to save his skin. The quality & taste of the food was one of the worst, least to mention. Overall after R1200 plus it was the most dodgy & deplorable experience.

NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!!

just a background, we are living in Sandton for two months now, and everyday go out for lunch/dinner to indian restaurant. usually we stick to usual ones, but this time we thought to trying something new.. so we decided to make a visit there.

Place looks beautiful, fancy but not very costly. There is outdoor seating available but we decided to sit insider (daughter just recovering from cold). it was just perfect and we were happy to try this new place.

until we notice that there was not a single indian person in the restaurant, which is very weird. usually at the dinner time, most of the other places are filled with Indian folks but not here. And it took us few more mins to realise why is that!

Place is not very welcoming if you are not white (my opinion), it mostly came from the waiter but vibes were very strong. food is good but any request outside were not welcome. Its very difficult to put those in words but I hope you get an idea.

overall, no complain on the food part except small portion size and poorly cooked Roti. if you want to make a visit, please do so by all means, you won't regret it but probably smile a bit while remembering this review.

tl;dr: we are not going back there.

My wife and I are in Jo'berg for a couple of days, and visiting some friends. They recommended Red Chili Spice, and so glad we went! We ordered the Butter Chicken dish and the Lamb Korma. I highly recommend both. We also very much enjoyed the smosas and naan bread. Go. Eat. Don't miss out!
