Had a decent meal here and found the service great. There is a good selection of Asian food available and the cocktails were well made also.

It is always Fantastic to eat at Bukhara. I visit Capetown once a year from Canada and always make sure I eat here. Fantastic Indian food. Broad menu and super staff. Highly recommended

Food very good - interesting sauces, beautiful decor - including the toilets! Unfortunately my husband's main course arrived 30 mins after the rest of ours which spoilt things a bit. The service in general was not the best but it was worth visiting as almost every dish was very good. Would go there again but would hope for better service

Ordered take out which was ready in record time. Waiter was extremely helpful over the phone, recommending and explaining the dishes. Portions are generous and food is delicious. Beautiful interior and would love to try a sit down meal!

The food was perfect 👌 However, the service was terrible. You imagine, no starting because they do no have. Long time ⌚ waiting for food. The manager did not care about customer.

I took business clients to the restaurant believing that it would still be great. It was almost empty and the waiter looked like he would rather be somewhere else. Food was good but over priced.

This restaurant appears to have delusions of grandeur and yet could not deliver on simple basics such as getting the food to the table in a timely fashion. We had the misfortune to dine there on Valentines Day and, despite the fact that it was far from full, the waitera seemed overwhelmed, to the point that diners could clearly see... More

Went on a recommendation of the hotel we r staying in, although at 169 on trip advisor on our evidence this should be much higher. On arrival they ask did we want to sit inside or outside, sat us at our table gave us the menu and left us to look for a few minutes then asked if we needed... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary Bukhara and we're excited as it was first time. Besides the waitress not being able to recommend or tell us the difference between the curries we were not even asked if we would like dessert (as we would have ordered being a special occasion) but we were being rushed along. The food was great but... More
