This restaurant in Nelson Mandela Square Level 3. Nice ambiance. Good Indian Flavor. Not a big menu but food is good.

The chicken korma curry is tasty with basmati rice. There is a wide range and you can take takeaway. It is tucked away out of sight on the top floor near the michaelangelo.

The kabab options are top notch (esp., the pasandas). Ordered Butter chicken with trepidation (most restaurants get that wrong) and was pleasantly surprised. Along with the yellow daal, it went particularly well, with the garlic Naan.
