The Coconut Grove has been around for a long time and has grown from the small take away in Thomas Street. Their food is always fresh, tasty and competitively priced. The portions are also very generous. Will strongly recommend them. They also host functions. We had a school reunion at their branch in the Liberty Mall and they arranged a... More

If you are a lover of home-cooked South African style curries...then this is the place to go to. The food is delicious. All their curries are rich in flavor and remind you of your mothers cooking. Place is clean and service was good. We enjoyed ourselves and will be back soon.l

The location, so close to that noisy monstrosity of a "fun fair", is not fabulous! But the food inside is very good. The menu is extensive, but we go for value for money curries and chicken tikka - even our littlest can enjoy spicy but mild enough for him. Quick, easy and not fussy.

Having eaten at this restaurant in the past, we decided to take our UK friends there for Curry which is their favourite meal. The restaurant is nice and big so not too crowded. The decor is good. We had good service and the waiter was helpful in letting me have a taste of the curry I had ordered, in case... More
