If you love proper Indian food and know your Pappadums from your Chapatis, this is the only franchise to visit in Cape Town for genuine Indian dishes. Laced with taste the selection is first class but priced at the top end!

Went a year ago, the complimentary starter is no longer on offer, the lovely copper pots that the food was served in have been taken away, no beautiful big white bibs, music loud, management not to friendly, our waitress was pleasant, food was good.

My wife and I visited the restaurant on a Wednesday. We arrived when the restaurant was not busy and were seated promptly. Our waiter then came with menus. We were then left waiting over 10 minutes to order our starters. The waiter did apologise for this, but then he did the same when we came to ordering our mains. I... More

We are on holiday from the UK exploring the garden route and are currently enjoying the delights of Stellenbosch. Having been on a seafood diet for a week we fancied some stronger flavours and booked into Bukhara. Our server was new but quite charming more than making up for any very minor hiccups. The food was simply delicious and we... More

Being the only Indian Curry restaurant in Stellenbosch for the past 15 years, options are non existent. We visited this venue last night and were once again bitterly disappointed. Prices are inflated and the quality is very very average. Far from authentic, bland and definitely not worth the visit. I would rather buy spices and make my own curry at... More

We entertained a Business Client, Waiter was over attentive with no real service etiquette. Food was average but too hot for one of my two Guests. Pricing was Out of Line even with the more expensive restaurants in Stellenbosch. Our Glasses were taken whilst 1/4 full simply to get us moving out of the Restaurant @ 2100 ? Not an... More
