We were last at Tikka Palace in July 2014, and I gave it 5 stars without hesitation. Today's visit earned it 2 only because the food was still delicious. The service however was appalling. It was a long weekend and there were large groups to be served, but this is a town that thrives on tourism and the whale season... More

Had a reasonable evening meal. Between 4 of us we had 2 different curries - Lamb Rogan Josh and Butter Chicken. The curry sauce tasted very much the same with the Butter Chicken having had some tomato sauce added. The meal was "quite nice" and the service was not bad. There was no sign of an owner.

I have passed the Tikka palace a few times and always wonder why there are so few people in the restaurant. This image was strongly apposed by the majority of reviews listed, with the exception of Schleepy. We diced to try it out and now I can put some perspective on things. There is an Indian restaurant in Stellenbosch on... More

This restaurant is well themed, positioned and it's menu has reasonable depth. I would caution large groups even if pre booking as I had a sense of over promise. Some of the dishes were authentic and tasty. A few were too strong despite requests for mild and a couple were raw . I was disappointed that we were asked to... More

If you love Indian food, then do yourself a favour and visit Tikka Palace. Situated upstairs next door to a national fish franchise,you can't miss it. Its not necessary to book - yet. I don't understand why this establishment is not full. The owner is the nicest sweetest man, his staff are attentive and knowledgable. And the food is excellent.... More

We had the masala prawn with chips and butter chicken and enjoyed it thoroughly that we came back the next day to try other dishes. I had the chicken korma and found this even tastier than the...

We visited the place for lunch when it was quiet. We were the only customers and the place lacked atmosphere. The food was great and the manager went out of her way to serve us despite not really being too familiar with the menu. The owner did come in while we were there... we expected her to greet but she... More
