Family run concern. Very friendly folk and food is simply delicious. Tables are on varanda of their house so you are welcomed into their family. Food is fresh and very tasty.

The food is freshly prepared for you and served by the friendly and gracious owners. Outstanding meals; crab curry is a highlight. Not licensed, so BYO. No decor and ambiance is lacking. Open for dinner, not lunch.

Crab and prawns are the best you going to have from an Asian eatery in Durban. Other SE Asian places are a distant second. It is a must for every foodie visiting and living in Durban. My go to joint. Mostly do take aways.

The food is great, possibly one of the best I have had. We bought take aways, I can't recommend it if you wanna stay unless you do not mind a dull and quiet atmosphere but otherwise the food is great.

The style and setting of the restaurant is a little odd, but i guess this gives you that authentic feeling of really being in Asia. Food was delicious and reasonably priced (a little more than you'd pay in Asia though). Special mention must be given...More

Do not go to this restaurant for the decor, ambience or a romantic meal for two - but definitely go for the most insane crab curry you will taste this side of indo! It's unlicensed, so take your own booze, order a variety of starters...More
