Great first time experience

We visited there for the first time, my wife and i were very impressed by the chicken tikka masala and the dhal makhnie that we had. Food was beyond expectation and the service was on point. An unforgettable experience worth a second visit.

We often take partners to this restaurant and it's always well recieved! The service is great and a wide variety of items in the menu, plus a decent wine list. Their chicken korma is just something else!!!

Enjoyed a sumptuous dinner with friends, with a varying selection of spicy yet full-flavoured foods. Really enjoyed the food offering, think the time/number of patrons was higher than usual and this meant service was a bit lacking, but overall we enjoyed it and I would return.

Ambiance is very nice. I normally order the butter chicken. It is average and nothing to rave about. My husband says that the tandoori chicken is quite nice.

I have been to Ghazal many times as I find the same consistently high quality Indian cuisine. The menu has a large variety to suit all tastes and food can be made mild, hot or very hot to your request. The waiters are very attentive. It is very popular so booking is essential. I prefer the inside area rather than... More

Have visited the establishment on a few occasions and the food is always of a decent standard. I am not always impressed with the service however as such is normally pretty average. The overall decor also needs a bit of an upliftment. Will return for the food however.

I have just returned from what I believe is the best curry restaurant in Jo'burg. Out of 5 main courses, 4 were superb and the last one was pretty good. Try the lamb Jalfrezi for a real treat and the vindaloo and korma were brilliant too. To top it all, we had an excellent waiter who was courteous and smiley... More
