I have been here a few times, as it is the only authentic Indian in town. There have been days where I couldn't fault it and the dishes were mouth watering, really tasty .... well most of them, there always seems to be one that no one wants to taste more than once. I suspect that a lot of the... More

my wife , I and my son thought for a change from fish in hermanus we would try the eastern cusine.Eating here transports you to india and back with the delicate array of eastern flavours served to us that only a highly competent indian kitchen can achieve...well done..(Just love those naan breads for wiping the plates clean)

I had lunch at Tikka Palace during the Whale Festival early October. I had been walking around a bit looking for something vegetarian. I received a good welcome and great friendly service. The vegetable biryani I had was the best ever with fresh vegetables, tofu and an awesome blend of spices and fluffy rice. I enjoyed the stillness of the... More

Me and my partner dined there in September 2014. Service was quick and efficient. Our food arrived sooner than initially indicated - just the way I like it - piping hot. I know fresh, excellent quality meat, chicken etc when I see and taste it. Thumbs up to Tikka Palace. I cannot wait to try their Sunday buffet lunch (when... More

Tikka Palace in Hermanus proves itself yet again. Their new location is lovely, we could even see the whales frolicking in the bay. We ordered Lamb Rogan Josh - which was melt in the mouth lamb (unbelievable) and aloo mattar (this was a pea and potato curry) yummy once again. The meal came with lovely white fluffy rice and a...

My husband and I had been eating the usual seafood and meat for the past week while traveling and we were both craving a change of flavor, so we looked for an Indian on trip advisor and crossed our fingers. Tikka Palace did not disappoint. We both had samosas, curries, and naan bread. The food was wonderful, as good as... More

It was a cold and windy day on the cape looking for whales. The yummy and spicy sauces at this Indian restaurant warmed us up. Well worth getting a number of items so that you can taste the range. Service was quick and pleasant. (No alcohol served).

Curries are great if you ask for medium thats what you get, had to have water with our food as we never knew that they dont sell wine, A glass of wine would of being better with the curry though, maybe they should think of stocking just wine.

My mom and I decided to visit Tikka Palace when we past the restaurant and saw the curry special. We're from Cape Town so we didn't know which nice restaurants to pay a visit in Hermanus. Wow, what an experience. I had the lamb korma and my mom had the butter chicken with delicious, fresh and beautiful naan bread. We... More

We ate here when staying in Hermanus as we visited during the off season and many restaurants were closed, and being vegetarian, seafood wasn't an option. The food was decent but definitely far from the best Indian we've ever had. I ordered the dal makhani but ended up with the paneer makhani instead. It was decent, but nothing special.
