Four of us went to this restaurant last Friday night. It was a successful evening from the start, with the waitress being attentive and cheerful, the owners very present and checking whether we were happy. One of our party was brought up in India and is a good cook of this type of cuisine - he was very happy as... More

Winter is upon us and good Indian food "night outs"are enjoyed. The excellent Bukhara was our, go to Indian Restuarant and then there were the others that offered mere "ballast" than delicious meals. Hyper cooking is a treat for me and not part of my diet. Bombay has become my food drug, I have even started collecting take always, to... More

Great little restaurant in Muizenberg near the beachfront. No views from inside, but the food & service easily makes up for that. Worth a visit if you're looking for a wholesome Indian meal.

Went to Bombay Chilli on a wonderful autumn evening. Family run restaurant with very friendly efficient service. Food was brilliant. Really authentic with a great selection. Flavours were delicious and concentrated. Over delivered on value. Will definitely be back. Well done to the Bombay Chilli team!

A relaxed atmosphere with great food and well priced. When we asked if we could have potatoes in a meal that didn't contain potatoes it was immediately agreed upon and it was delicious! I believe that cards are now accepted :)

Both paneer and chicken dishes were tastefully served, were very tasty, liberally portioned and moderately priced. Setting was pleasant enough. Small niggle, cash only business so had to do a 10 min walk to an ATM .

Even though we live 20km away, we try go a often as we can to this little Indian gem. One of our favorite restaurants in CT and hands down favorite Indian. Not sure why other reviewers question the value/pricing. I regard R55/65 for a vegetarian main and R70/80 for a chicken main with rice as decent value. Great flavor and... More

I have become a cult regular. Best Indian food in Cape Town, great service (owner run) and quality of food exceptional. Fabulous atmosphere. Amazing vegetarian options and very reasonable prices.

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in Cape Town. The restaurant is small and doesn't look like much but the food is epic. The locals know the food is good and it's busy. It's best to book ahead as it can be full from 7pm onwards. Otherwise come early or get take aways. I always have the lamb vindaloo and... More

Great name, I thought, so I decided to go. Unfortunately the tastes were pretty average and the price a little bit on the expensive side. The service was good. Wont hurry back though.
