For the past couple of years I've always heard raving reviews about this restaurant. I finally got to try it out the other night and I was not disappointed by any means. The service was outstanding, our waiter had outstanding humor and was really well mannered. The music and atmosphere was relaxing and calm, and in general a really welcoming... More

Ghazal is a staple of the Fourways community. The service is good and the menu is very wide for a variety of tastes. If you are visiting South Africa though, one must remember that it has the largest Indian population outside of India, since first arriving over 150 years ago. The local style of cooking holds to a different palette... More

Ambiance of this restaurant is great. I have never had a bad meal here. The variety curry dishes are superb. I'm always struck by the attentiveness of the waiters. They are never too far away to assist you with whatever you want to order. The Vindaloo and Butter chicken we were incredible and we will be back to visit our... More

We go here regularly, we are very rarely disappointed, however on the odd occasion as in this past weekend we had a takeaway ordered 3 meals and in each meal the meat was quite tough don't know if they keep the poorer cuts for the takeaway meals but we were fairly disappointed. However sitting in the restaurant we have always... More

This is one of our favorite restarants for food, but do not take friends with because it really is extremely dirty!!! The seats are so badly food marked and filthy the whole place needs a complete paint and CLEAN, the bathrooms are also something to be afraid off,doors don't look and that's been for months. I really think the owners... More

Best Indian food available, have tried and around and really struggled to find a Korma that compares. I think their lamb korma is the best thing on the menu, amongst other great stuff

I got a chance to revisit our family's favourite restaurant during my last business trip. The chicken tikka masala is to die for. Don't miss the aloo gobi. By far the best. Keep it up guys and till the next time.

After we lived for two years in New Delhi, I'm always a bit worried going for Indian. The more I was surprised at Ghazal about the food ... good, but not spectacular variety of dishes from North India, well prepared, fragrant spices and, rare to get in India itself, not too hot. A bit unsatisfactory for me personally was the... More
