Vintage was recommended by a local Durban friend as one of the best Indian restaurants in the city. Although I haven't tried many in the city, Vintage delivered on our expectations: a good range of Indian dishes, plus a few Chinese ones (oddly enough).

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening close to closing time. Service was fair with the food on the whole good. I have not been to this restaurant for some years and did find that the whole dining experience was not as good as before....maybe the timing of my current visit played a role. The butter chicken was very standard... More

I love curry and even in Durban its not easy to find good unthentic Indian fair. Vintage India has never disappointed in this regard and I have found that food wise they are right on top of their game. Pity that the place has become so dated and tired and soooo in need of a complete revamp. Furniture is years... More

The meals and food variety here are never disappointing. As previously mentioned, the variety on the menu is vast and the food tastes great. Starters to main course to desert, all good. Service is average here.

Restaurant Vintage in Durban doesn't look especially inviting from the outside, but don't let appearances fool you. Very hospitable and the most important: the food is fabulous and very Indian (i.c. spicy) indeed. We visited Vintage on a Saturday night and we were about the only people not from Indian descent. Great place!

A great place for authentic Indian food, all round very impressive the only complaint is the the restaurant could do with a makeover as things are starting to look very drab.

While the food was excellent in our last visit, it was not as per mark this time. But still it was good and must add better than many other places you can eat in Durban

Ate here a couple of times the last few months. I think getting parking is the biggest issue here.... The vegetarian food here is outstanding. The menu is vast. All the indian delicacies that you can think of are here. The place is a bit dated and could do with a revamp but the great food over shadows the decor.... More
