“Great hidden away local resturant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in Cape Town. The restaurant is small and doesn't look like much but the food is epic. The locals know the food is good and it's busy. It's best to book ahead as it can be full from 7pm onwards. Otherwise come early or get take aways. I always have the lamb vindaloo and the peshawari naan.

“Average Indian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Great name, I thought, so I decided to go. Unfortunately the tastes were pretty average and the price a little bit on the expensive side. The service was good. Wont hurry back though.

“Food indian food”

Rhe curries here are really good. The vindaloo nice and spicy. The only thing is that the price is not consistent with the portions. A bit pricy. Service is good.

“Convenient but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

I normally order either vindaloo, tikka masala or a saag/palak dish at Indian restaurants. When i walked in a saw a saag dish and it looked runny and creamy so unfortunately I didnt get to try it. I went for the vegetable curry and it was good but nothing special. My boyfriend got the vindaloo and it was nice but a little too vinegar tasting. The prices were very high and overall it was my least favorite indian restaurant. Living in muizenberg, this was a shame because I would have liked for it to be incredible.

“What an amazing restaurant !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

95 Keerom has to be experienced to be believed. From the minute you walk in the door until you leave this is truly a world class dining expierience. Superb food / presentation. Excellent choice of wines and attentive staff make you feel as if you are in Italy as opposed to Cape Town. The hands on involvement of Giorgio Nava owner / Master Chef truly make a difference. Try it. You will love it !!
