Best Curries

Brilliant curries, Indian breads and accompaniments. Rather expensive but well worth it. Food is lovingly cooked and portions are handsome. Best Indian naan bread, rotis and home made samosas. Service is attentive and beverage prices are moderate. My favorite Indian Restaurant in Johannesburg :)

This Sunninghill restaurant is famed for its curries, and the three dishes we shared were really tasty. Sadly what they had in taste they lacked in temperature, and came to us only just warmed through. Menu is extensive and you choose your own level of curry strength. Lighting was poor for such a huge restaurant. We will go back again... More

I have eaten here several times and it never disappoints. Wonderful Indian foods with incredible spice palates. Very reasonably priced and the service is amazing! I recommend this restaurant for small or large groups. The menu works well for ordering your own meal or sharing plates for the whole table.

Not only the best Indian food I have had, it is very possibly some of the best food I have ever had. Friendly staff with good service. All the dishes we had could be ordered in mild, medium or hot.

This is a busy restaurant and it is advisable to make a reservation. The service is good, the food is tasty - with some dishes a bit pricey - and the wine list adequate. I will have dinner here again.

We've visited before for sit-down, but recently decided to get take-aways on a Friday evening. I phoned beforehand to place an order and then drove to the restaurant to collect. When I asked for my order, it turned out that I had called the wrong branch to place the order. The way that the restaurant handled it was amazing! They... More

Wonderful place to spend a Friday lunch with a business partner. Sat outside in the "comfortable" chairs which is great. Fantastic curry and well priced wine to end a busy week. Samosas were a bit doughy. As always the service is excellent and the manager always recognizes us and is very welcoming. Does help to go there when they aren't... More

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.
