Extremely expensive and mediocre tasting. To top it all off we ordered or curries and there was no rice! Where is the rice? Oh sorry you have to buy that separately. Hmmm ok why didn't you tell us that when we ordered? Fine bring us some rice please.. 10 minutes later our rice arrives to a cold curry. Crazy expensive... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant on a Wednesday. We arrived when the restaurant was not busy and were seated promptly. Our waiter then came with menus. We were then left waiting over 10 minutes to order our starters. The waiter did apologise for this, but then he did the same when we came to ordering our mains. I... More

We are on holiday from the UK exploring the garden route and are currently enjoying the delights of Stellenbosch. Having been on a seafood diet for a week we fancied some stronger flavours and booked into Bukhara. Our server was new but quite charming more than making up for any very minor hiccups. The food was simply delicious and we... More

Being the only Indian Curry restaurant in Stellenbosch for the past 15 years, options are non existent. We visited this venue last night and were once again bitterly disappointed. Prices are inflated and the quality is very very average. Far from authentic, bland and definitely not worth the visit. I would rather buy spices and make my own curry at... More

We entertained a Business Client, Waiter was over attentive with no real service etiquette. Food was average but too hot for one of my two Guests. Pricing was Out of Line even with the more expensive restaurants in Stellenbosch. Our Glasses were taken whilst 1/4 full simply to get us moving out of the Restaurant @ 2100 ? Not an... More

Hard to decide , I have a business partner who owns two Indian restaurants and I eat out often. Firstly , service was exceptional , but the quality of the food vs the price ? I'm just not sure whether R 199 for Lamb Rogan Josh and for a number of the other meals is good value for money. Wine... More

Bukhara make absolutely stunning curries. My wife and myself are curry addicts and try to visit Bukhara at least twice a year (it is 600km from where we live!) just for the sheer delight our tastebuds get from the exquisite flavours of their curries and the tasty Naan bread! This visit we were really surprised by how much the prices... More

Bukhara has great food and the best Tandoori wings. One of our highlights when visiting the Cape. Unfortunately they don't serve the full wings anymore and the restaurant menu has become very expensive. Great waiter. Unfortunately forgot his name. A student study hospitality.
