What a hidden gem right here in Cedar Square! The variety on the menu was incredible! The service was fast and efficient! The food was truly delicious and delightful! If you are wanting a truly Indian experience, Classic India is the place!

We were taken by our trip organisers for having food. Food was so good that you feel you are in India . Dal Makhani was best

I love this place, such extensive menu of new things, so far all delicious, prices really low. Love the setup it's got more atmosphere and comfort than the normal Indian. Only been here three times but it's def risen to the top of my Indian restaurant choices!!!

We went for Sunday lunch and couldn't have chosen a better venue. Pam likes her "curry" VERY mild. She had the Chicken Korma and was delighted with her choice. I like to taste the curry and I had the Chef's special which was cooked to perfection. The prices are extremely reasonable. We had a bottle of wine which costs R120-00... More

Dishes from all over India but mainly the North. Very good quality with good service and excellent value for your money. The decor is modern and clean and the staff very friendly.

The restaurant is set inside a small block. It's next to an indoor karting track and News Cafe. The decor is warm and the staff very attentive. Food was to a good standard and the waiter made a good effort to make sure we were happy with out meals/drinks. I will certainly go back.

Visited this restaurant for lunch. Buffet spread was good and the food was tasty. Serves mainly north Indian food. Service was good, ambience is mediocre.

Tucked in a small shopping center next to where I was staying, this place is a nice option if you’re sick of hotel buffets. Had the prawn Korma, nicely done, and very reasonably priced (with a beer, tax and tip came to about $10).

I love Indian food, and was not disappointed. Service was very good, the flavors of our two different biryani dishes was excellent. The location is easy to find in daylight, the parking area was very full, and to get out to the nearby main road was very difficult after sunset!
