“Awesome Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Visited Bukhara in Sandton and the restaurant serves North and South Indian Food which is easy on the palate. The Roti,s and Naans were freshly made and tasty. The Vegetarian option which we selected was delicious and made to order. Decor is simple and tasteful. The restaurant is located in the quieter part of Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton and this is appealing because it is away from the hustle and bustle of the Shopping crowd. Easy Accessibility to the Restaurant from the Parkade.

“Too hot for an Indian too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

went there with an Indian business partner who wanted to show us that he is a real (makoya) Indian. we took mild whilst he took hot. the mild was still too hot for an african palate but it was rewarding to see my makoya partner sweating from the forehead.
The food is tasty and makes coffe at the end a welcome relief. you do not have to take chilli food but what is the fun theN?

“Good curry!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

We were really eager for a few days already to have a nice spicy meal and having been to Bukhara in Cape Town, this was a natural choice. Not quite the same standard as Cape Town, but nevertheless good

not the best setting or ambience being in the middle of a shopping centre, but very good, authentic Indian cuisine.

“Authentic Indian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

We dined at Bukhara on August 22nd. The ambiance was good although mall setting was not exactly the view I had in mind. We ordered appetizers as well as main dishes, waited for appetizers to arrive, instead the waiter brought main dishes. When we asked what happened to the appetizers, he said he forgot to place the order with the kitchen. Of the dishes we ordered Pudina Beef and Naans were excellent. Other dishes were what we would have expected - nothing outstanding. At the end of dinner waiter brought the bill, I charged the bill to my credit card along with the tip, then waiter asked to pay the tip as cash instead of putting it on the credit card stating that tips that would flow to him would be substantially reduced if they were on credit card. Since I did have Rands available, I complied but I found that behavior very peculiar!! Overall, it was an average experience.
