Namaskar is a must. Situated in Hatfield Pretoria, do not judge this restaurant by location! The owner is friendly, the staff are amazing, the wine list is good and the food is flawless. Try any curry, or the tandoori lamb. You will not be disappointed....More

We were passing by Pretoria in our way back from the Kruger National Park. We made a stop here to have a break and were positively surprised about the excellent food that we were able to taste.

Nice atmosphere and pleasant dining room, great food, seriously overpriced alcohol - be warned! Politely queried with manager whose response was just to walk away with a sour look on his face. Obviously used to ripping people off for the drinks without any complaints.

Authentic, great tandoori and vegetarian dishes. Great indian "breads". Nice and pleasant owners. A little it on the expensive side but because of the quality of the food still value for money.
