“Expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The tea was expensive. It is fine to go when there is a special occasion. The parking and the hotel is really stunning. Drinks are also expensive.

“BEST LANGOUISTINE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've been coming here for years for the langoustine. The best in Durban unless things have changed in the last couple of months. There were other contenders but they have fallen away imho. Very fine oysters too as one might expect. And yes the curry is great. But try the langos. You won't regret it. The indoor terrace shields you from the usual stiff breeze at Umlangha. You can't help feeling like a million dollars at this place. White rattan furniture, cheap rand, food which costs nothing (for a Brit). I come to Durban twice a year and this is my first port of call.

“Celebrity chef”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Took Irish friends there for their anniversary dinner. Finest Durban curries. Outstanding chef. Loved the touch of having a sommelier. Little too ponsy and little too pricey but first class all the same.
