We visited Bismillah Restaurant in Fordsburg on Mother's day (14 May 2017). The restaurant was fairly full, but we managed to get a table for three. Our waiter did not write the order down, assuring us that he would be able to remember (this resulted in unnecessary delays). We ordered 4 Aloo Paratas for a starter, 2 Butter chicken and 2 Beef Karai with 4 Chapati's and 2 plates of chips (as there are no potatoes in the Beef Karai) for the main meal. We also ordered a jug of passion fruit and lemonade (it works out cheaper to order a jug than individual glasses of drinks). They supply you with a small plate of salad and some dhai. The starters arrive on time and was delicious. The Butter chicken is the best I have tasted and the Beef Karai was also delicious. The only problem we had was with the service. Our waiter kept getting our order wrong, because he refused to write it down. Our chips arrived towards the end of the meal as he had forgotten, we therefore had to take it home. On the whole the food was delicious, but the service needs improvement. Will definitely return, but will call manager if waiter refuses to write down the order, as it results in unnecessary delays.

Went two weeks ago for lunch with family. We ordered a meal where we all could eat which consisted off chicken boti, tikka, lamb chops etc. From the time we walked in we felt really welcome and they made us feel at home. The service from them was absolutely excellent and the food was also great. The owner even came to us to ask how we enjoyed the meal and we told him we really enjoyed it. I've only eaten at bismillahs before and I will not go anywhere else.

Ordered a chicken tikka Marsala, mutton curry and chicken korma curry due to cold weather. All three were ok, but I have had much better curry in Jozi, particularly at Ghazal. The Chicken Tikka Marsala did not carry the usual flavours, mutton curry was extremely oily and the chicken korma needed a lot of condiments to address the lack of taste. Sadly will not be going back.
