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.
