“Awesome Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

SUMMARY
The Oriental Garden restaurant is fabulous for authentic Indian food, atmosphere is average though. Still highly recommended!

FOOD 10/10
I have had some of the best chicken tikka of my whole life here, and that's quite a compliment considering I have traveled extensively throughout India and enjoy Indian food regularly.
Everything we ordered was delicious, definitely deserves the full score for food quality! Prices were totally agreeable, too.

ATMOSPHERE 7/10
There is little ethnic decoration and the overall atmosphere was very average, but this might in part be owed to the fact that we went very early, just after they opened that evening. Also, this is Africa and in comparison with the 1980' s canteen atmosphere in your average Zambian food joint, the Oriental Garden restaurant still fares well. Food presentation was fine, too - they were using little stoves and also some sort of charcoal heater for the chicken I thought was cool.

SERVICE 8/10
Service was quite professional and very friendly, however pretty slow - but this may also be linked to our early arrival.
