“Authenticity and Style”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We used to visit Johannesburg from Germany on business trips and discovered Bukhara and absolutely loved it.We love Indian food and were always looking for some where good.
Now we live in Johannesburg and went there this evening. Love the decor subtle and understated.We are vegetarian and it is not easy to find good vegetarian food in a meat loving country. The food was delicious, stuffed mushroom starter a dream. A crepe like starter with spinach and a sauce of coconut cream delicious. Saffron rice and lentils perfection and of course the must have garlic Naan bread.We were entertaining a business colleague from Turkey and he was totally blown away. Bukhara is classy and simply excellent

“Just Perfect!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

To entertain a group of 20 persons is always a challenge! We would like to thank Nick and his team for a wonderful evening. The food was excellent, the service was attentive and unobtrusive and everybody enjoyed the evening. Your contribution to the success of this international visit is highly appreciated by the management of our company.

“Excellent naan, but that's about it all!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

After a lot of recommendations, decided to try out this place but was heavily dissapointed. The menu is very limited and highly over priced (highly highly over priced). The food was just okay and nothing spectacular, tasted the same as any indian take out shop in Johannesburg. The tomato overpowered everything else in the curries we tried. The naan was excellent and service was good, but that's all there was to this night. Overall, a dissapointing experience and would not recommend!

“Fabulous restaurant”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

Having recently arrived from the UK for a 3 month stay, my husband and I decided to try Bukhara having read the reviews on Trip Advisor. What a great decision we made. The food was delicious, tandoori chicken superb, lamb rogan josh too, thankfully we didn't have an appetiser as the portions were more than enough. The mushroom and pea vegetable side dish and pilau rice were delicious too. We were warmly welcomed by the manager and had terrific service from Fortune. We have 20+ year old children arriving soon in Sandton so will definitely make a return visit. We certainly felt it was far better than the usual choice of Indian restaurants we go to in London!
