“Good Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I have lived in India, worked in India and understand Indian food.
This restaurant really does have some delights. For me the best was Tarka Dal.
It's a bit pricey, but the so is Zambia.

I will go back again and again!

I ate here three times and the food was excellent. My daughter and niece loved the samosas and the Tandoori chicken was superb but everything was good. Yummee!!!!

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Great food and wonderful service (thanks Jacob) provided in a wonderful atmosphere.

Our only complaint is that our 'medium' butter chicken was significantly hotter than our 'hot' Jalfrazi. The management provided yogurt free of charge but even that would not have saved many people perhaps not used to such authentic Indian cooking. But otherwise we would highly recommend the Golden Leaf - well worth its first position in Livingstone.

You should of course put on your mosquito repellent before you go. Sitting on the veranda is brilliant in the evening but lotion up.
