If you are looking for a good korma and naan bread Ghazals is hard to beat. Even the kids love the mild dishes.

You just cant help it. The food is so tasty you cannot desist. Contrary to usual Indian food establishments, this food does not just deliver burn...the curries, and in fact all the food, is aromatic with complicated flavours of creative spiced cooking. Traditional dishes, traditionally served. Good service too. The manager is constantly on the floor keeping an eye on... More

Enjoyed the meal very much. It was nice to see the Samoosa's prepared the old fashioned way. The onion Badjia were very tasty, and we regretted not ordering another portion. I had the lamb chops, which were tasty, but not the best cut. My companions Chicken Vindaloo was apparently very pleasant. Waitron was not very attentive, and did not check... More

We ordered a few different dishes, meat and vegetable dishes and then we all tasted everything - everything was absolutely delicious. The Bombay potatoes were special but honestly everything was great. Our waiter Mike was so... More

Have got to say I have had a bigger variety and more substantial quantities per dish at other Indian eateries in Johannesburg . The garlic naan and the tandoori chicken was about the best dish on the menu. Our party ordered lamb, vegetarian and prawn dishes. Although the rice was included as part of the serving of curry, the curries... More

We ordered lamb sheek kebab, garlic naan, chicken biriyan & chicken korma. The service time was fast and foods were served within quick time. The serving portions were... More

Ghazal is a nice indian restaurant in Johannesburg with a quite wide choice of dishes and drinks. I ate there with some friends and everyone was satisfied with the service and food. We did not wait for our dishes and we appreciated the kindness of the waiters. Ghazal is a little bit overpriced compared to average southafrican restaurants but for... More
