Delicious North Indian food

An authentic North Indian restaurant boasting the most amazing and flavorful dishes. We are regular patrons and enjoy the amazing spread that is available. Friendly service, the staff are extremely welcoming.

We go to Ghazals regularly and always have a wonderful time. The food is very delicious- I especially enjoy the lamb korma and butter chicken. The managment as well as the waiters are very welcoming.

There are not words to explain this decadent eating experience. The food is outstanding and so wonderfully tasty. The restaurant has a nice relaxed upmarket feel. The wine list is good. The staff is so friendly and helpful and management is on hand to ask anything or just a chat. Then the, food I don't know what to say except... More

Amazing food and service, expect to be blown away. Probably the best curry one can find the whole of Johannesburg. The naan bread was exceptional, service great and just the perfect atmosphere.

never been disappointed and have been at least 8 times. Service is good and food is consistently brilliant. The naans are superb - rated by Indians from the sub continent as some of the best they've eaten. I've had excellent Chicken Tikka Masala, Breyanis, Lamb Vindaloo...

Ghazal as we knew it is gone. Last night we experienced "new management". The curries are no longer made using authentic ingredients, no yoghurt, no nuts no love. The Korma I had was the worst I had ever tasted or experienced. The samoosa's were terrible, tasteless, and doughy. The chairs are dirty, if you look at them, you can see... More

Food was very tasty... I was particularly impressed with the Naan bread... Some of the best I've ever had... Very nice wine list to compliment the food... Missed a little of the traditional tastes in the food.

The food was absolutely superb, from the chicken to the lamb curry dishes, the naan great and service attentive. The only drawback is the dated furniture that is in need of some attention, however an excellent experience all round.
