Oscars has been around for years and continues to offer good fare and fast service. Curries are always good as are the wraps.

Painfully slow service followed by a baby chicken that was overdone on one side with some barely edible sections but burnt beyond recognition on the other side. The reactions of the waiter, manager ( he ran away when I was about to pay) and the owner were deplorable. I can't remember when last I gave no tip whatsoever ... Must be over 20 years

Had dinner at this restaurant a couple of weeks ago, a nice range of 'home cooked dinner' type foods. Food was very good, the service was also very good. The atmosphere is relaxed and easy, overall, most enjoyable.

Oscars, on Durban's Berea, was once a buzzing, vibrant venue, drawing appreciative diners because of its well-priced and varied menu. Over the past few years, as the original owner moved on, the restaurant has lost its lustre.
In today's tough times, many restaurants offer breakfast specials at lower prices, to draw diners, who, hopefully, will return for other meals. After over a year's absence, we tried Oscars on a Sunday morning, to try their morning breakfast special. The venue is looking decidedly tired and shabby. Walls need painting, the ceiling, too, and the small number of customers seemed to vindicate our response to the breakfast special, with toast a little soggy and the muddy coffee equally unappealing. Size of servings had shrunk, the prices raised, and our sampling of a once-favourite restaurant left us with sad resolution not to return.
