As South Africans, we've had a fair share of curries. And this curry is by far the best we've had. I highly recommend the chicken tikka masala, it is a rich thick curry with so much flavour! Portion sizes are generous, and their garlic naan...More

We went there for dinner. The staff was very friendly and fast. The food was great, it had the right mix of spices and was not too hot for us. Really great location.

I dropped in for a meal as restaurant handy to motel. Food of reasonable quality, but the beer I ordered was not chilled. Limited wine selection. Obviously popular for takeaways as a number of customers cane and went while I was in the restaurant.
