Out of our local curry houses, Spiceburg for us offers the best flavour and ingredients this side of teh Scottish border! The flavours are typically consistently really good. Sometimes the intensity of heat can vary, in that a mild can one day be a mild and a month later will seem like an extra hot. I often think this may... More

In our quest of trying Indian foods at different restaurants in & around Jo’burg, we visited this place for a team dinner. The restaurant has a nice ambience and adequate sitting place. However, when we visited, there was limited crowd. We ordered rumali roti, aloo paratha, lamb biriyani, chicken tikka jalfezi & veg methi matar. Service was prompt and foods... More

Spiceburg was one of our favourite Indian restaurants when I lived in Johannesburg and, after about a four year absence, I was happy to find it on a list of Halaal-friendly restaurants in Johannesburg while visiting with a Muslim colleague on a business trip. The restaurant has changed location since my last visit and the new area is larger and... More

My husband and I love this restaurant. The Indian cuisine is exceptional and we appreciate the attentive (though discreet) service. Normally I don't eat cauliflower but they have a starter cauliflower dish that is so delicious we take an extra one home. The various curries we've tried have always been a hit. The flaky bread is another must! The decor... More

We recently popped into Spiceburg on Greenside's trendy Gleneagles Road and enjoyed a very tasty selection of Indian food. For starters we went for the non-veg mixed tandoori platter and prawn tikka kebab which is prawn tails marinated in yoghurt and spices and then grilled. Excellent. For mains we went with butter chicken (a well-deserving old favourite) and lamb rogan... More

I always enjoy a meal here. My highlight is Pepper Ghobi, which is a actually not pepper but Cauliflower fried in a spicy batter. I had suggested the restaurant some friends, and on the way there I told them about the Cauliflower, they kept teasing me about raving about Cauliflower, but since tasting it they are converts too. I also... More
