rather decent Indian food. 5 of us shared dishes and enjoyed our meal. wine list was 25% off so made for reasonable prices and entrees not that expensive. a safe choice

I will begin with a disclaimer that may explain my bias. Wherever I go, I always order a well done pepper steak because it’s my favourite meal. On my last evening at the New Africa Hotel, I decided to go down to the Bandari Grill located on the 1st floor and ordered what else but a well done pepper steak. I guess the chef didn’t get the message because what was served to me after waiting 30 minutes was a steak still dripping with blood (sounds like a scene from a horror movie). After sending the steak back to the kitchen, they managed to char the outside but left the inside still rare. At this point I was convinced that the Chef must be a vampire and decided to eat only the cooked part of the steak which I found to be hard and the pepper sauce didn’t quite do it for me. Thus this qualifies as the worst steak that I’ve ever been served anywhere.

Having heard some good things about this restaurant we decided to give it a try. The service was slow, and the waitress served and disappeared. Is everything okay, would you like more to drink, or have some dressing for your salad? None of the above. The soup was bland, no better than some cream of Campbells, the main course average - no, it was below average. Some of the lettuce had rust, or russet spotting, and someone had carefully placed it under fresher lettuce. It was unappetizing to look at, but of course harmless. The ambiance was not worthy of mention, and the men's room was on another floor. We may have hit a bad day because I'd heard it was much better than what we experienced.

Had A Lovely Indian Buffet with Live Indian Music Good Clean hot food and the waiters were very quick in service.Now this was on a weekend but you should check. It is Good & reasonably priced.This hotel has been there for over 30 yrs but has kept to good standards and the Lobby must have been renovated.I really missed their outdoor cafe on the main
Floor and now it has a Casino at this Hotel also.
