Great vibe at 14 on Chartwell. They get very busy so make sure to make a reservation, the food is good and the drinks.

We tried the lunchtime specials and was extremely disappointed with our meals. The "Lamb Schwarma" was more like stewed lamb in a wrap drenched in a tasteless sauce and had cartilage bones in it as well. The wrap had soggy lettuce and carrots in it...disgusting!...More

One of the best spots to go to around Umhlanga village. The staff is very friendly. The food menu is awesome. Gets crowded over the weekend so eat arrival is advised

The lamb curry tastes nice but the portion is stingy, so if you are hungry you need to order double. The coffee waiter's bravado toward the woman customer is highly embarrassing.

A poor selection of vegetarian meals. Main meal - vegetarian burger. The roll was ‘stale’ or had that texture. The burger was dense - lacked seasoning - a real disappointment. Other than Nicos i am yet to eat a balanced vegetarian meal in Durban.
