Restaurant details
Reviewed August 17, 2017

We arrived without a booking and managed to get a table without much fuss. They really need to get someone to attend to the guests when they arrive.
We sat down and were attended to by a waitress who told us it was her 2nd day on the job, she should really be shadowing / training a bit longer as she knew nothing about the wines, and this was a Saturday where the place was quite busy.
We were attended to quickly and the wine was brought with the popadom table snacks and sauce dip. Very yummy, in fact we asked if we could have a little more.
My wife had the butter chicken and I opted for the lamb korma which we ordered with some rice and butter naan - both meals arrived fairly quickly and the flavour was out of this world - not too hot and plenty of taste & the meats were super tender / soft.
We sat and chatted and ate our meal and were checked on regularly (the waitress must learn not to serve while chewing gum). The boss even came to see if all was good and satisfactory - what a huge improvement from the old premises in Walmer.
All in all a wonderful meal, with ok service, but we left happy customers and will be back - pricing not too cheap but great value for the total meal (R358 including the sparkling wine for the 2 of us).

This restaurant has become one of families forthrightly haunts.
We have honestly never been disappointed! The dishes are prepared individually and are always perfect. If you want great Indian, look no further!
Now that they've moved to the beachfront, you get great views to. Highly recommended.

We went with a group of friends, and all of us tried different dishes. Everyone enjoyed what they had chosen and the portions were large enough for the others at the table to sample too

Excellent view of the promenade. Food was good . Meat all halal. Alcohol served. Service was good and we did hv to wait very long. Open until late. Can become noisy due the bar below this venue
