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.

Was told this place was amazing but we had a poor experience. We were enquiring about 2 very common Indian dishes with the waitress who said it wouldn't be possible and if we wanted them we had to speak to the Chef directly! We did this and he was happy to comply so very strange. to give an example, the... More

Unfortunately, this is the only place in Stellenbosch where one can get good, authentic Indian food. The food is freshly prepared, the various curries and tandoori dishes will please almost anyone, while the garlic naan and is simply amazing. While the food prices are on the high side (R160 for a curry), but the wine prices are simply a rip-off.... More

Bukhara does serve very authentic Indian cuisine and also the restaurant is nicely decorated but we found the prices throughout the menu incl. wines are just above average which shouldn`t be the case! Little hint for the service-staff: it`s enough when one person askes the guests if everything is to their satisfaction - not three different person every 10 minutes...

I had dinner twice in this restaurant because one of my colleagues needed a halal restaurant for his meals and this was a hotel recommendation. The food is tasty, service very friendly and helpful. Menu has a good selection of north of India dishes. Very good location at the end of Bird street.

Ordered a bottle of wine for $45. Their roof leaked water into my glass. They decided to only give us a discount of $2. I have been to this restaurant more than 10 times and this is the way they treat their repeat customers. Be aware!

Excellent indian cuisine, but a little overpriced. Portions are generous and for those who are not used to true indian food, it is advised to ask for a mild version of their dishes!

We had a hankering for Indian food, so we decided to treat ourselves at Bukhara since it the only Indian restuarant I know of in the Winelands. First I must say that my initial impression was that it was very good and the food was delicious.. and it is... it is just after some thought, certain negatives do pop into... More

I have never been big on spicy foods. SWAMBO (google it) enjoys curry, and we ordered the Beef Kali Mirch for a starter which was very tasty. She then had Lamb Korma and I had the lamb shank which blew me completly away. We will definitly be eating more spicy fooodin future :)
