“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

We really enjoyed the food. It was tasty and not tooooo hot. The service was excellent. The chairs were comfortable and the table were large enough for all the food that we ordered. Yum Can't wait to go back and have another meal there ;)

“Some of the best Indian in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

The food is amazing, the service is excellent, and there is incredible value for money to be had at Thava. I have never had a bad meal here!

Tip: If you are uncertain about what to eat, ask the staff for recommendations, they are never wrong!

“Excellent authentic Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

I went with a business associate from Mumbai. It was a first visit for both of us. According to him it is by far the best Indian restaurant in Johannesburg, with a wide selection of dishes.

The food was excellent and the service good.

If have to find fault, they were a bit slow in giving us our bill in spite of the restaurant not being busy.
