Lovely quiet atmosphere and mouth-watering food

I don't like hot food so my favourite is the lamb korma - absolutely delicious! Lovely furniture and setting - quiet, tables not on top of each other so you can actually talk. Good service and really good value for money!

A firm favorite of ours, the chicken tikka masala is hard to beat as well as the lamb korma, there are choices for all here. Good vegetarian items in particular. There is always a Friendly greeting from jimmy the owner. Can recommend for the best curry in jozi

Unfortunately the waiter did mix up the order. I ordered the hot, and my mother the mild, but I got the mild & she got the hot. The meal was still delicious (and not excessively hot) I am salivating thinking about it and will be making a booking real soon

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.

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 :)

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
