I have pinched this title from a previous reviewer as I believe this sums up this wonderful restaurant to a tee. The welcome, service and quality of food is nothing short of outstanding.

Had an awesome meal here. The food was beautiful but the staff were even better. The lamb shank curry was amazing and couldn't recommend highly enough. If you're in Cape Town, try this place out!

My wife and I had a most memorable evening at this elegant restaurant. The warm friendly greeting on entering was a forerunner to the night and it only got better from there on in.

We have been recommended to this restaurant by our hotel as we love Indian food . Very good indeed. The food was delicious and the service prompt and friendly. Definitely you need a booking as this place gets quite busy.

This is an extra ordinary Indian restaurant, the setting is beautiful and the food is innovative and very different to the type of restaurant we get at home. I can't speak highly enough about the service and the staff. Would throughly recommend

This restaurant, located with the Taj Cape Town, was by far the best Indian restaurant I have ever experienced. My family ate there twice. The food was delicious, and there was a wide selection, with many vegetarian possibilities.

From appetizers to desserts, everything was delicious. Highly recommend the corn soup and lamb chops. Service was slow due to lack of staff but we were compensated with a tray of desserts and treats so no complaining there!
