My 9 year old daughter LOVES coming to this restaurant for the Chicken Korma, so we do make a point of coming for special occasions & treats. Service is ok. the menu items are quite pricey, but the food is quite delicious.

This is a typical mall restaurant with little atmosphere but good, tasty North Indian food at very reasonable prices. Service was OK with lots of waving required to attract the attention of the waitress, but she was very friendly and helpful once we did have her attention. The manager was similarly friendly, coming to our table two or three times... More

Great great food with authentic tastes! Not the sort of toned down Durban style indian food! Loads of flavour and plenty to chose from on a great menu. We had fun there and the staff were also very pleasant so we had a great laugh

If you want decent Indian food in Johannesburg with the right ambience this should be in the top of your list. Roti and all varieties of gravy is very good and worth the eat. They have very good service as well and since the ambience is very good you can really spend a good amount of time just relaxing with... More

We could not resist the tantalising spice aromas drifting from the restaurant and the vast menu of starters, lamb, chicken, seafood, biryani and vegetarian dishes to choose from. Perfect to indulge in on a chilly Winter's evening. For starters, we shared Chicken Tikka, Lamb Samoosas and Chilli Bites in addition to the complimentary papedom. It was perfectly spiced and generous... More

The food is extremely good and good value for money. The waiters are attentive and pleasant, the manager is there and supervises. They also let you bring your own wine, corkage charged, of course and we were accommodated pleasantly and with no fuss. We rally enjoyed our meal and the experience. I can recommend The Classic India wholeheartedly .
