I try to nip into Eastern Bazaar whenever I'm in town - the food is just brilliant and I like how you can choose difference cuisines from within one location. Curries are superb and the food offers excellent value.

Whenever I am in Cape Town CBD I head here. It used to be a long narrow shop, Wellington Fruit Growers, and now is a long narrow takeaway (take-out). Mostly Eastern food of Indian origin, but also Middle East (eg felaffel) pizzas and ice cream....More
