It's a lovely building and beautiful inside. We ordered wine and when we had drunk half the bottle we ordered food, only to then be told there was no tuna or beef although it's a mostly sushi restaurant. We ate our food which was lovely. Having finished our main course at 10pm we asked for the dessert menu, the waitress seemed shocked and questioned it!!!! She then went out of the room and came back to say the kitchen was now closed with no alternative!!!

We have had dinner at Czar twice.
The first time was a select valentines menu which made the perfect start to a perfect evening!

The second time we ate the best sushi in the land!

Everyone should try it, seconds will be inevitable :)

Trying to fit a pretentious vibe onto one of Durbans most relaxed streets. Service is, quite frankly, horrendous. Waited 2 hours for food. Sushi had bones in it. Would rather have poured bleach in my eyes.

Rare in Durban, Tsar invites you to dress up a little. Occupying a stately mansion on Florida Road's main drag, it has good, expensive drinks and good, expensive sushi. But be warned, you'll have to wait for both. And wait, and wait. Cocktails are assembled so painstakingly that you'd think the row of barmen are building a watch or something. The tasty and delicious sushi often takes an hour to arrive; is it being sliced using a series of paper cuts? Dancing in the evening.

Very nice and trendy restaurant in a wonderful restaurated building. Nice atmosphere, good background music, lovely wines and attentful staff. The food is ok; not exceptional, but certainly not bad. A good place to go if you are in Durban!
