Don't be fooled by the outward appearance and simple decor - the food here is something else. We had the tandoori chicken, some curries, starters and everything was excellent. Plenty parking too.

A no frills restaurant on the main road in Fish Hoek but the cuisine beats many of the so called upmarket Indian Restaurant chains. Extensive menu, satisfying large portions. I started with Onion Bhajis which did state x 6 on the menu but I was not ready for the fist size of the perfectly cooked lightly battered aromatic offering. Hubby... More

What a great restaurant. Very extensive menu, which caters for all tastes. Even if you are not a spice lover, they have a mild option and don't forget to order a side portion of naan bread.

I visited with my mother this November. The service was great, waiter was extremely friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable, food good and full of flavour. Portion sizes are nice and big : I had to take a doggy-bag for leftovers. Downsides were: Choice of music (trance techno) - although my mother enjoyed it! Wine wasn't very good Spice level... More

Ordered takeaway breyani here. Food is lacking flavor. No spice to it. Atmosphere seemed more sombre, and vibrant.

Best Indian Food in the South of Cape Town for sure, we regularily order from Bhandaris and are never disappointed. Price, quality, consistency and great service are all cornerstones of this, our favourite local foodie spot.
