In a sea of South African dining mediocrity, there is a small unassuming Indian eatery languishing in an equally small and unassuming town in South Africa. The small dorp of Fish Hoek, an hours drive south east of Cape Town, was once chic, Bohemian even. Times, though, they are a-changing, and fashionable it is certainly no longer. But good food...

Dear Bronwyn, I am truly sorry for what you experienced on Saturday evening. I would have felt exactly the same way you are feeling. We have never had something like this happen before, but once, is one time too many. We pride ourselves with excellent food and service and would love the opportunity to change your mind. Please can you... More

Bandaris is one of our favourite local restaurants. The variety of flavours they create here is the absolute best. This is our first choice restaurant when we have friends and family visiting.

Bhandaris is a great little curry house on the High Street in Fish Hoek. The food is always exceptional and the service excellent! Highly recommended are the Chicken Tikka Masala and Naan breads! Flavours are great and they are always served piping hot. There is a wide selection for both meat eaters and vegetarians. Well worth a visit!

I ordered the Goan fish Curry, but with the first bite I had a mouth full of fish bones. The waiter courteously apologized and removed the plate. The manager was there in seconds to take my new order,I asked for the chicken Korma instead and received it within a few minutes. We had a splendid evening due to their amazing... More

Gem of a place. I've eaten at hundreds of Indian restaurants globally and I have to place this quaint venue at or very near the top. Service can be mixed to good but the food makes it a 5 star walk in.

Eating a chicken korma right now, and it is the bomb. Peshwari naans also a winner. Going to get right back to it now.

Restaurant is not fancy but the food is very good. Good quality meat (Lamb, chicken, fish) in very intersting curry sauce, good Northern Indian cusine. Have eaten here many times and never disapointed. Was allowed into the kitchen the other week, very surprised one Tandoor chef and the main chef John with two hot plates. His skill when mixing the...

Fast and friendly service & great food. I love Indian cuisine, and this counts under the best I have ever had. The portions are big and the prices are very reasonable. The whole family enjoyed eating at Bhandaris.
