food was awsome,and halaal (yay) prices are reasonable and a great atmosphere.Seating however is a problem,inadequate for the masses, so you have to wait quite a while to find seating.Could use a bit of air conditioning.Other than that it's well worth trying!

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and the recommendation of our Hostel we went here for dinner. At first sight it looked funny none off the staff could give a smile, the waiting was quite long and the food: fat, not tasty and not even cheap. I wonder why the Bazaar has such high rated reviews. There are much better... More

Very delicious Indian food. First we chose our well priced meals and then we had to go to cashier to pay and then we got our meals. Service friendly and professional and on top of all quick. Its different from other restaurants and full of. fun. The place always is packed.

Lovely lunch today at Eastern Bazaar in the centre of Cape Town. Very affordable and tasty meals. A souk style environment for a casual meal. There's too many different dishes to name, but the Masala Dosa remains my favorite. A great place to eat for both locals and tourists alike

Great delicious Indian food, it is halal and low priced, sitting is comfortable but busy most of the time specially weekends. You have to choose first then go to cashier queue then back to another order queue Deserves trial 👌🏻👍🏻

The evening we went there, the place was teeming with people, all queueing in front of the many food stalls. Eventually we decided on our choice of food, queued to pay up-front in exchange for food vouchers and then joined other queues to collect our chosen foods. Having collected our food the next task was to find somewhere to sit... More

Once upon a time this was a terrific place and very popular. Now it degenerated into a cheap fast food outlet. Here you will find the worst of "Western style" oriental food. If you're really desperate, then it will fill your needs. Sadly, you won't find any delicious Asian flavours here. Cheap and nasty.
