“Authentic Indian Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Excellent! Our favourite and the food is authentic! The breads are delicious and the dosa is to die for! The service is consistently good and price is great value for money.

“Great Indian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Tucked away in Norwood, Thava provides an alternative to the ubiquitious curry chains. Food and service were great but sound of adjavcent building renovations intruded into what would have been a perfect lunch.
Highly recommended

Its not in a mall, which is a plus; but the food is not THAT great - you can do better in Fordsburg, the Indian part of Jhb
