We had such a lovely evening sharing a meal with friends. Using our hands to mop up the last sauce in our plates with some naan bread. Bukhara is definetly not the cheapest place in town, but the food is good. All at the table had something different, from not spicy to hot. There is something for everyone's taste.

Since the restaurant got some good reviews and being the only Indian restaurant in the area we decided to give it a try. The place was clean and tidy but the food was very average. Prices are quite high as compared to other Indian sit down restaurants. We were surprised to see the minimal menu with none of the famous... More

I was dropped off, hungry, from an afternoon wine tour, and I was headed to highly-recommended Helena's. I just didn't like the depth or the content of the menu so I started looking. I came across Bukhara, I believe a chain as I saw one in Cape Town. There was absolutely no one in the place at 6:15 and I... More

When it started it was great. Then the staff became more important than the customers and the prices became excessive. You are chasing good customers away. Better options elsewhere. Pity as we used to visit weekly.

We went in with very high expectations. With the Cape Town restaurant being consistently described as the best Indian food in Cape Town, we expected a lot from the Bukhara in Stellenbosch. The atmoshpere was OK, but it didn't seem too authentic (generic hit charts pop music in the background didn't help either). The biggest surprise was when at least... More

We always enjoy eating at any Bukhara restaurant. The food is delicious and the service outstanding. On this visit we had very limited time to have our meal, so checked the menu online and phoned in our order in advance. We were served as soon as we arrived and the staff made sure everything ran smoothly so that we could... More

My girlfriend and I went to this well-known Indian establish on Saturday evening 09/08/14. We were greeted by a rather hostile waitress, who consistently brand damaged the dishes on the menu (calling them bland and not filling). During my meal I started coughing and struggling to breathe because another waiter started cleaning and spraying which seemed like a large amount... More

Amazing curry and Indian/eastern dishes! If you're a fan for spicy cuisine this is a must, the food and service is excellent! It is bit on the pricey side of things so be prepared to fork out a few rands but quality come's at a cost and it is definitely of great value for money. Will visit again!

It was Father's Day and as last minute travellers difficult to secure a booking at one of the winelands restaurants. Bukhara accommodated us and the setting and service made it a memorable experience. The food was superb.
