“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We wanted to go to Bombay Brasserie, but they don't serve lunch, so my friend took me to the Eastern Food Bazaar. It was a fabulous experience.
It is a very busy place filled with intense smells from the many different foods available.
The ordering process can be a bit intimidating, so I was happy to be with someone who new what to order. I can't say what we had, but all was tasty, and simply very good. The crow fun to look at, racially and socially completely mixed in the most natural way. If you are trying to find the Rainbow Nation, go there.

“Best value food in Cape Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

This must be the best value food in town: huge portions and tasty food. Nothing gourmet, but every flavour of Indian or Asian food you can imagine. Keep in mind that it gets busy over lunch times and dinner times, as this is where the workers get their food, so be prepared to queue. There's also a slightly quieter eating area upstairs if the dining area at the counters is full. It's halal, so no alcohol allowed.

“Good variety!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The location of the place is really convinient, heart of the city. Self service, fast food place.
Dont expect impeccable hygine! But the flavours are to relish here.
The place has lebanon, north indian, south indian, chaats, mithaais, pizzas etc! One cant eat everything in one visit!
If you are craving for some good cheap Indian food, this is the place to go!
Make sure you dont sit at the tables near the exits, often street dwellars will be asking for food from outside, there is an aircon section on the first floor, which is usually empty and peaceful.
Donner shuts at 1030pm everynight.
