“Best indian food i have ever tried.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

The food is fabolous. The onion bajhee are so good... and so different compared to the ones i tasted in Europe. Had some chicken vindaloo... very spicy but u can still taste the chicken. Naans were fresh and good too. Been twice in 2 days to this restaurant! Good service too

“Great food, great value and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We have been visiting De'ma for the past couple of years. Set away from the main restaurant area of the huge Gateway Mall it is easy to miss in the northern end 'action zone'. The decor is vibrant and modern, the service always friendly and efficient. My favorite dish is the De'ma platter with a mix of corriander and mint naan, samoosas, meat kebab and tandoor potatos and chicken tikka. My family has a mix of the butter chicken which is completely mild so perfect for children or those who don't like heat. The bunnies are good too. With many Indian restaurants to choose from in Durban, this is one of the main places I send my international guests because I know they will find something on the menu they like and they will be looked after.
