Best curry venue in southern suburbs

We have visited Bombay Chilli on 4 occasions and have never been disappointed with the service and quality of food. Big portions at a reasonable price ensure that you never leave hungry.

At the risk of not getting a table next time, I would say this is the best Indian food in Cape Town! The vibe is relaxed and easy going so suitable for kids. Bring on the 'load shedding' so I can have any excuse to go get a Butter Chicken again.. Its addictive!

We found this place in Muizenberg by accident today. For a Saturday afternoon, the place was moderately busy and we were able to get a table for two. I suspect it does get busier and one should book a table in advance. Service was a little slow yet attentive. We started with an Aloo Paratha to share followed by Paneer... More

Recommended by friends and liking Indian food, we headed off to notch our belts with another restaurant "review." Lovely restaurant, great décor, cozy, romantic and a good ambiance. All I wanted was a lekker (nice) Vindaloo, as I am a curry person. The vindaloo was not a traditional vindaloo, which left me "deflated." Noneteless, the meal on a whole was... More

There is good news and bad news - Bad news: Prawns were not available! That immediately put 2 of our party on a restricted menu. The wait from order to arrival of our food was an hour and twenty minutes which is totally unacceptable, especially as the take away orders were going out with regularity. Restaurants must put their seated... More

If you are looking for a great curry, this is a good place to go and won't let you down. We went as a group of friends. Lucky we were friends because the service is really slow and our waitress was very sullen. We still had a great time and the food made up for it. When I go there... More

I've had friends tell me "you must go to Bombay Chilli". With hubby loving hot & spicy foods, I thought, well perhaps Bombay is the palce to go to. When we got there, the mood was cozy and "romantic". Really liked the layout of place. Hubby ordered vindaloo and mentioned to chef that it wasn't hot enough for a vindaloo... More

A friend had a Groupon voucher and invited me to join him for dinner last night. Co-incidentally I had read about Bombay Chilli on the internet over the weekend and decided it was one to ear mark for a future visit. Having been there, it is ear marked for another visit. The décor is charming and the menu interesting. The... More
