The decor of this restaurant is fairly dated but their service and food make up for that. Our 9 year old ordered the Risme Kebabs which contain no heat at all and are served with chips. The chicken was moist and flavoursome and he did his dish justice. The rest of us ordered a variety of dishes with different main... More

A complete accident that I stumbled upon this restaurant. What a happy accident indeed. They have been around for 15 years! The food is authentic. It comes very quickly and staff are always at your attention. Definitely worth recommendation and will be back.

Tucked into a shopping centre parking lot is a delightful Indian experience. Having local friends make the recommendation helped. Its not the first time we've eaten here and we would be very happy to return! An excellent evening of shared fairly traditional Indian dishes, washed down with great service. We didn't pay too much attention to the order and ended... More

The food is generally nice here but nothing more than average... the sauces that the food is made in is very thick and doesn't contain enough authentic Indian flavors. Naan is alright, a bit dry. A safe bet if you crave Indian, just don't expect exceptional traditional Indian food.

Not only is Ghazal a really tired-looking restaurant, with a really boring interior, the food is incredibly poorly presented and tasteless. We were a group of about 15 and had mixed tikka tikka platters for starters and the chicken was incredibly tasteless. Ordered red wine, it was so warm that we asked for a cooler, and had to ask again... More

We usually go the Ghazal in sunninghill but on 17th Dec Ghazal Sunninghill was fully booked for someone 60th birthday. so we went to Ghazal in Bryanston. We really enjoyed having our dinner at Ghazal Bryanston. The food was very tasty, our white wine was excellent and service was really good.

Jan 23 dinner: Highest rated restaurant in Johannesburg on Zomato - had to try this one. The restaurant is quite big and the ambience is just right. We were the only Indians and the place was full of local South Africans. So, in my mind, I was a bit skeptical. But my doubts were gone once the food came. The... More
