I don't eat very spicy food and hubby loves curry,condrum ...yet Tranna manages to suit both our palates. The most delicious mild creamy tender chicken tikka marsala for me and spicy and hot lamb korma for him. The garlic naan are huge, pillowy soft and buttery. We always end up getting two.

I went here with trepidation but boy was I surprised. The service is first class & the menu is mouthwatering, prices are good but when you get the food you will re-check what you paid for it as it is one of the best Indian restaurants in pretoria.

We visited Tranna as we were in the mood for some curry. It is a cozy little restaurant with a lot of potential. We arrived at about half past seven, and waited 15 minutes before our drink order was taken. Half an hour later we got the opportunity to order our food, which we waited a further 50 minutes for....

My family and I were visiting Pretoria last Saturday and had an urge for some Indian cuisine. To be specific, I was yearning for a tasty bunny chow. A quick internet search yielded Tranna, which is located in the Hazeldean shopping centre in Pretoria East. The bunny chow was not on the menu but the manager advised they could make... More

I always avoid restaurants that have staff trying to lure you in. We gave in as our preferred restaurant was a bit further and it was too hot to walk there.Excellent service but the outside area is noisy as the tables are too close to one another.

I enjoy Indian cuisine, particularly the more flavoursome Northern cuisine. Tranna does not disappoint in this regard. The flavours are truly special although some of the dishes are a little too sweet.

Hoped 3rd time lucky. But not at all. If not undercooked, it's watery, or today way to salt to eat. Seriously big disappointment.
