I've been to Bombay Chilli many a time, and the food is absolutely excellent - it is by far my favourite Indian Restaurant. The restaurant itself is quite simple and has a nice relaxed atmosphere. The food can sometimes take longer to prepare than most restaurants, but it is worth the wait! The flavours are incredible and the portion sizes... More

Just had a takeaway from Bombay Chilli via Mr Delivery. It was my first meal from the place. I had the Kadai paneer curry. It was so so so delicious!!! One of those meals that you don't want to ever end because the flavours are so amazing. And my order arrived 15 mins ahead of schedule as well. Will definately... More

We booked online and didn't receive confirmation but decided to try anyway. We were told it was because the owner is overseas, but we are lucky because there is space (if you don't monitor the online bookings, don't have them!) It was the first time I have EVER sent wine back, but it was horrible and a wine I have... More

The Bombay Chilli has the greatest curry in the area! The selection is quite extensive from seafood to lamb to chicken, etc. The side dishes were also delicious. We visited on a great winter Sunday afternoon. The service was on point and just like we like it (not too long wait for food, table cleared timeously, drinks refilled, not intrusive,... More

We love curry. It's our favourite food. After going to Bombay Chilli for the first time 2 years ago, we haven't been able to enjoy curry anywhere else. It truly is the absolute best little restaurant with incredible food. It's not a fancy, classy vibe, so if you're into that jazz don't come to Bombay. It's relaxed, laid back and... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our visit. The place was busy, so it was a tad slow, but the staff was friendly so we didn't mind. We tried the Lamb Dhalsa and it was spectacular. The samoosas were crispy and spicy and the naan was hot and fluffy. We liked our experience so much we ordered take-out a few... More

A small, humble restaurant in Muizenburg with good vibe and very reasonable prices. We ordered 6 vegetarian dishes shared among 5 of us and every dish was delicious - tasty, not too hot, aromatic, fresh ingredients and the rice was abundant (unlike most other Indian restaurants in Cape Town). My ONLY irritation involved communicating with the restaurant to make a... More
