You have to try a Bunny Chow and this is the best place for it. An authentic curry house in a city renowned for it's multicultural heritage and food history!

Went here a couple of times on my last visit to Durban. The atmosphere is good/lively and they show a lot of live sports so it's good after work or in the evenings.

The food is good. Vegetarians looking to sample the bunny chows (South African street food with an Indian influence - curry and bread served like clam chowder) can order off the menu and order 6 mini bunny's with mushroom, veg or bean (or a mix of all 3 - they will say that they need to check with the chef but they'll do it). There are a bunch of other veggie items also for small snacks or a big meal.

Cocktails are also very well made and presented.

Highly recommended if you are in town.

Casual and very reasonably priced restaurant on Florida Road with all sorts of curry. My favourite was the bunny-chow which is a Durban speciality.

We had lunch on Saturday with a couple of friends at this vibey, informal restaurant. It is well located on Florida Rd. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is mouthwatering. They offer a take-away menu as well as an eat-in option. The portion sizes are large, even when one orders the regular size. The curries come hot to really hot, so make sure you order "mild" food if your palate can't cope with the heat ;) The ambience was great and is definitely one of the best traditional curry restaurants in Durban.

This place offers good takeaways of Indian dishes - the regular size is far from regular, but more a very sizeable portion that will fill anyone up. Good flavours. Fun place to have a beer and enjoy an Indian wrap. Otherwise, an average curry place. Durban has far better to offer if you are going out for curry. Despite some reviews, this is average. Go to the Brittania Hotel for better curry and atmosphere. Stay here if you are primarily coming for a beer and the rotis are simply part of why you came here in the first place.
