My family love eating at Ghazal, the manager Mikey always has a welcoming smile and warm handshake, and the staff are efficient and friendly. The food is consistently superb, we have never been disappointed, you get what you ask for whether you like it hot or mild. Some of the seating especially in the booths could do with a makeover,...

Don't come here if you plan on a late dinner. You will be chased out at 21.59, doesn't matter how much wine you have left in your glass.

This is as authentic as it gets in Joburg, to real Indian food. Cooked to perfection and served with a pleasure. It is a bit pricey, but we'll worth it. Treat yourself to 3d samosas before tucking in to a flavourful meal. Don't forget to wash down with massa tea (a digestive) and soothe your tummy with some kulfi.

I love this establishment. Great authentic curries. Other places mightbe cheaper but does not beat Ghazals quality and portion size. Keep up the great work. David

We arrived late, they setup a table on the terrace.No problem! The chairs were almost more comfortable then my couch at home. Food was outstanding! Service was top form. Really impressed and will definitely be back.

This restaurant is a wonderful experience. Even if you don't love Indian food, the choice is wide and the mild curries very mild for those with sensitive palates! Their starters are different, succulent and a divine way to start a meal. The choice of main meals is wide and the food very, very tasty. I highly recommend a visit to... More

We really enjoy eating at Ghazal. The service style is relaxed, the food is REALLY good and the atmosphere is very social. Really enjoyable as a couple or as a group.

This is the best Indian food around. We've been here countless times and it's always fantastic. Their naan bread is the best I've ever had. Only place the menu lacks is with dessert.

The wide variety of delicious Indian meals and the beautiful decor make Ghazal one of (if not the) the best options in JHB for Indian food. It's difficult to recommend specific dishes (I always have the prawn curry or butter chicken) because everything was absolutely delicious and prepared to the correct strengths of heat. Definitely worth a try for a... More
