A fairly good meal (nothing spectacular) ruined by the waiter who intruded constantly, cleared plates before we had finished and then compounded things by sneaking a 15% gratuity onto the bill, deleting the total due and leaving open a further line for additional gratuity. When we pointed out he had already tipped himself on the bill some embarrassed muttering about... More

Good food here and an interesting view of the chefs beavering away in what looks like a very hot kitchen (thankfully separated from the restaurant by a glass screen). Limited choice of curries by U.K. standards but the food is done well and service is very good. No draught beers but I tried three bottled beers of which easily the... More

This review is for the city centre branch which was recommended to us and just a few minutes walk from where we were staying. First impression was that it's not very Indian as most of the waiters were white and the cooks in the open kitchen were black. The menu is shorter than a typical Indian restaurant In the UK... More

The Indian food was pretty good, not the best I've ever had, but far from the worst. The sushi falls into the same category- enjoyable, but forgettable. The outdoor seating is nice.

This was our 2nd time here nothing has really changed excellent food as last time. Extremely good and prompt service. Worth the price being at the waterfront. Must for Indian food with a good experience at the front.

One of the best Indian foods I've had in SA. Recommended items are the Rogan Josh, Chicken Tikka and do top it up with the Kulfi at the end!

I went here with my girlfriend during our holiday in SA. We ordered chicken and lamb kababs. The first dish was great, well grilled but the lamb kabab was a waste of money. Tasted like soap and it was practically uneatable. It was a great choice for my gf and a big dissapointment for me.

This was some of the best Indian food I have ever had. The lamb chops were amazing. The waiters were very friendly. You may ask why I only gave 4 stars then. Well, when we went there was a middle aged man with a mustache, dressed in a shirt and slacks, presumably the manager. He would walk to every table... More

We had a very nice evening at Bukhara with chicken tikka, butter chicken, nan and mango ice cream. All dishes were excellent. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Strong recommendation for everyone that likes Indian food.
