I visited twice on a business trip to Gaborone. Both dinners were excellent. We had all the usuals - palak paneer, butter chicken, chicken vindaloo, dal, chicken tikka, naan, etc. Everything was spiced well and portions were of good size. Prices were about $8 per main dish. This is well worth the visit!

The best Indian food to be found in Southern Africa. Highly recommend all the paneer dishes even if not a vegetarian! Butter chicken can't be beaten. Naan bread with butter or garlic just tastes like more!

Located in the Riverwalk shopping the decor is questionable. Not a crisp clean environment. The staff are friendly but very slow. The kids always love the butter chicken but it took ages to arrive.

I would prefer to have a quick order, dine, pay and leave. As a single diner who just wants his tummy filled in. But for inviting friends or family is possible only if you wish to go for the cuisine.

Embassy is probably one of the of the best if not the best Indian restaurant in Gaborone. Very good food. Love the rotis/nans and my favourite mutton kadai which i have every single time i am there. Staff need to wake up a little more though
