“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Just popped in at Ghazal for a quick dinner, on arrival they were busy closing. The manager informed us that they were closing, but immediately offered to help us with a take away meal if we should wish. We accepted, had a great meal and the friendly service was what makes us return time and again.

“Vegetarian nightmare - given lamb!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Not happy, I told them I was a vegetarian but I do eat fish. They said they would make me a fish korma. When they brought it, I took a mouthful and realised it was not fish. To my horror I found out it was lamb. Although they replaced this with paneer, I think as a vegetarian this was a terrible experience. The least they should have done is not charged me!

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Ghazal has lovely food and the rest of Jozi thinks so too. If you don't book you're unlikely to get a table as I rather sadly found out.

“" The Best Indian Cuisine you'll ever experience "”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I have traveled extensively through South Africa and can confidently say the Ghazal's Lamb Korma and Chicken Maknee just simply cannot be equaled @ any authentic Indian Restaurant - everyone else can only hope to fight it out for 2nd position !
