I've been to Czar on quite a few occasions, during the week and the weekend. Their fish is amazing, I once had a tuna steak that was perfect. Their burgers are good too. But on a half price sushi Wednesday, we waited almost 2 hours...More

Lovely atmosphere... although I got food poisoning from the sushi, BOTH times I went there - so I won't be going back!!!!!! Made me so sick, terrible experience! Tastefully decorated though! Bathrooms were nice?

We have had dinner at Czar twice. The first time was a select valentines menu which made the perfect start to a perfect evening! The second time we ate the best sushi in the land! Everyone should try it, seconds will be inevitable :)

Trying to fit a pretentious vibe onto one of Durbans most relaxed streets. Service is, quite frankly, horrendous. Waited 2 hours for food. Sushi had bones in it. Would rather have poured bleach in my eyes.

Rare in Durban, Tsar invites you to dress up a little. Occupying a stately mansion on Florida Road's main drag, it has good, expensive drinks and good, expensive sushi. But be warned, you'll have to wait for both. And wait, and wait. Cocktails are assembled...More

Very nice and trendy restaurant in a wonderful restaurated building. Nice atmosphere, good background music, lovely wines and attentful staff. The food is ok; not exceptional, but certainly not bad. A good place to go if you are in Durban!
