The sauces even had lots of variety as well. The food was bery nicely priced and the food was spicy as well which is all a Pakistani or an... More

What a lovely surprise. Nice food, good prices. Nothing fancy. We were there on a busy Friday evening, we did not even wait long for the food - which was delicious. We will return when again in Cape town.

... visited it twice when staying in Cape Town. Liked the "hands on preparation". Good meals, exotic atmosphere and good prices. More takeaway than sit-down. Gets my recommendation !

The place had a wide variety of cuisines on offer but a very normal ambiance / seating area. Good for take away or if you want to have a quick bite while roaming around the city. Not a place where you want to sit and enjoy food at leisure. Its a self service place where you pay for coupons and... More

This is an experience NOT to be missed if one likes Eastern cuisine......of the down - home kind. There are about 6 or so counters, each with different types of food. You pay as you order and they make it for you, but often it's already made,eliminating long queues. It's hot and steamy in this food arcade, as I call... More

Friends of us invited us to Eastern Food Bazaar, because they know that we love travelling. We were so surprised with the fantastic vibe in this Food Bazaar. There are many choices of food on the different menus from India, Turkey, etc. Everything is displayed on big boards behind the counters. You make your selection of food, pay at the... More

Have come here time and time again. So cost effective. Easy on your wallet and the food is of a decent quantity. The food however is a bit bland, and I don't think it's anywhere near any dish you would find in india as far as flavours is concerned. It obvious as an Indian that the spice and flavour has...

I love the Eastern Food Bazaar. But it's good to have the right expectations when you enter into "the alley". Don't expect amazing service or fancy schmuck: what you see is what you get. You pay upfront and then queue for your food of choice: Indian, pizza, falafel, shoarma, Chinese etc. Unbelievable good value for money. It's almost always extremely... More

Ordered two plates of chicken tikka with salad and chips and it was delicious.One plate would have been enough for both of us to share. The quality was excellent and together with one drink we had change out of 5... More
