A wonderful expierience. Great food and wine. Friendly and helpful waitors who explained all about the dishes in detail to make choosing easier. Clean and great atmosphere. Indian music played all the time but not too loud as to interfere with conversation. Great place to hold celebrations as we witnessed.

Ghazal has become our go to place. Management is very friendly- food quality is great and the atmosphere is welcoming. Food is spiced according to your preference. Pricing is not the cheapest however for convenience of location for a good curry it's worth it. The starter platter never disappoints. Good atmosphere for work dinners as well as intimate dinners.

Having had many curries abroad it was a challenge finding somewhere authentic in Jozi. While the service may be, from time to time, a little slow - the food is excellent. You will find it difficult to find better naan bread, even a chilli garlic naan available off menu. A good drinks menu and warm reception. Ghazal is worth a... More

Every meal we've had at Ghazals is fantastic, they have a great variety on the menu and lots of yummy side dishes. The ambience is good, you can sit outside or in, large table or small, booths and comfortable seating. I would call this restaurant an "Experience". The service is fairly quick too and efficient.

This was our 4th visit to this Indian restaurant. This time all 4 of us were very disappointed. We were given a table by a nice heater as was a very cold evening. Half way through the evening the (I presume the owner) wheeled it away to say that the other half of where we were sitting needed to be... More

Over the years I have eaten at this restaurant many times. The last time was very average, but believing that one poor experience is not a fair assessment, we had lunch there last Saturday. In spite of being the only table occupied for the first half of our meal, our booked table was in a thoroughfare - the food was... More

We were blown away by the food at Ghazal. The tastiest Indian food I have ever had and not just a hot curry. Very pleasant ambience and excellent service. Certainly a must for any Indian food lover
