this restaurant closed unfortunately down, due to the fact that Tsogo Sun took over the hotels and took in there own restaurants. There is no good Indian Restaurant close by. but in Cape Town there is a Jewel of India in Somerset Street.

Menu is not nearly as varied with vegetarian dishes as expected! Food though is tasty n service is good! The waiters are not very knowledgeable as regards wines! All in all a good evening out but not what was expected for the price paid!

would have like to eat authentic Durban Indian cuisine - the food was bland and north indian. We had the fish curry and lamb curry which was very ordinary.
