We were a party of six and ate at Tranna Indian Restaurant on New Year's Day for lunch when most other restaurants were closed. We are so glad we found Tranna. The staff were very friendly and our food was excellent. We will definitely be back to visit Tranna again. Highly recommended!

We visited the restaurant at Park View. I had the Chicken Madras and hubby had the Lamb Korma. We also had a serving of the butter Naan. The food was amazingly good. We could not stop eating even when we were full. I can not wait until we can go again. Really worth trying if you like Indian cuisine.

This place is a shadow of the greatness that we knew once.... We used to go to the Hazeldean Branch whenever we came through the area, and their food has always been excellent. But recently everything changed at the Hazeldean outlet.. They took off all the décor, they serve no liquor and the service was shocking and very very poor!!!... More

I don't eat very spicy food and hubby loves curry,condrum ...yet Tranna manages to suit both our palates. The most delicious mild creamy tender chicken tikka marsala for me and spicy and hot lamb korma for him. The garlic naan are huge, pillowy soft and buttery. We always end up getting two.

I went here with trepidation but boy was I surprised. The service is first class & the menu is mouthwatering, prices are good but when you get the food you will re-check what you paid for it as it is one of the best Indian restaurants in pretoria.

We visited Tranna as we were in the mood for some curry. It is a cozy little restaurant with a lot of potential. We arrived at about half past seven, and waited 15 minutes before our drink order was taken. Half an hour later we got the opportunity to order our food, which we waited a further 50 minutes for....

My family and I were visiting Pretoria last Saturday and had an urge for some Indian cuisine. To be specific, I was yearning for a tasty bunny chow. A quick internet search yielded Tranna, which is located in the Hazeldean shopping centre in Pretoria East. The bunny chow was not on the menu but the manager advised they could make... More

I always avoid restaurants that have staff trying to lure you in. We gave in as our preferred restaurant was a bit further and it was too hot to walk there.Excellent service but the outside area is noisy as the tables are too close to one another.
