We booked online and didn't receive confirmation but decided to try anyway. We were told it was because the owner is overseas, but we are lucky because there is space (if you don't monitor the online bookings, don't have them!) It was the first time I have EVER sent wine back, but it was horrible and a wine I have... More

The Bombay Chilli has the greatest curry in the area! The selection is quite extensive from seafood to lamb to chicken, etc. The side dishes were also delicious. We visited on a great winter Sunday afternoon. The service was on point and just like we like it (not too long wait for food, table cleared timeously, drinks refilled, not intrusive,... More

We love curry. It's our favourite food. After going to Bombay Chilli for the first time 2 years ago, we haven't been able to enjoy curry anywhere else. It truly is the absolute best little restaurant with incredible food. It's not a fancy, classy vibe, so if you're into that jazz don't come to Bombay. It's relaxed, laid back and... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our visit. The place was busy, so it was a tad slow, but the staff was friendly so we didn't mind. We tried the Lamb Dhalsa and it was spectacular. The samoosas were crispy and spicy and the naan was hot and fluffy. We liked our experience so much we ordered take-out a few... More

A small, humble restaurant in Muizenburg with good vibe and very reasonable prices. We ordered 6 vegetarian dishes shared among 5 of us and every dish was delicious - tasty, not too hot, aromatic, fresh ingredients and the rice was abundant (unlike most other Indian restaurants in Cape Town). My ONLY irritation involved communicating with the restaurant to make a... More
