Tikka place provides a welcome change of cuisine in hermanus. The service was efficient and menu reads like most Indian restaurants in big cities so enough variety for all. Food is ok. Not special as can get better in major cities but for its location it is ok. Restaurant was quiet as we were the only patrons during lunchtime but... More

If you want something different from the usual cuisine around Hermanus this a a good place to try out . The food Indian but a clean decent place to have a meal . The food although "authentic" lacked something that would make this place very special. Although the food was well prepared and nothing to complain about we have eaten... More

Lam Rogan Josh was delicious but oh my hat, only 4 pieces of beef in the entire dish. It was a mission to get my husband there and then to leave still hungry. the portions are really too small for the amount of money you pay.

Hi dear sorry to hear you found 4 pieces of meat in Lamb Rogan Josh. Firstly we do not have any beef dish on the menu, so it was lamb and not beef, secondly under no circumstances you could get 4 pieces of meat, as our portions are generous and we do not compromise on quality and quantity. I personally... More

We went to Tikka Palace for dinner last night. As usual the food was excellent. This restaurant maintains it's standard for food quality and consistency. The food is typical North Indian cuisine. Do not expect the lavish furniture and decor that you would see at Bukhara. The styling is rustic but functional.

Having stayed in Pringle Bay last weekend we decided to take a drive to Hermanus. We opted to have lunch at this restaurant and felt happy with our choice of food especially in the chilly weather. The restaurant has a sea view and a pleasant layout. The food menu was extensive and everyone was pleased with their meals except for... More

Business Lunch. Had a loverly meal. If you like indian food this is the place to go. Decor and service lets it down a bit, but the food makes up for it.

Arrive late evening on a quiet day in Hermanus...is there any other type? My wife fancied an Indian meals and this did not disappoint. Good selection, quality food and friendly service. The only drawback is its location upstairs in a nondescript shopping area.

The Tikka Palace Restaurant in the Village Centre Hermanus offers exquisite traditional Indian & Pakistani cuisine by candle light. All at a reasonable rate! During whale season guests are also amazed by the performance of the whales in the ocean opposite Village Centre.
