Fun atmosphere and good food! The waiters were very friendly and wore cool outfits. We sat in cool swing chairs. Would definitely recommend this place for dinner with friends.

Part of the Madame Zingara group so fun & quirky. Good vibe. Glitter station is a must, as well as hats!

For a restaurant with such a "reputation" (and price tag) we were thoroughly disappointed: We were 7 guests and were cramped into a small table in a restaurant half-full. It took 1/2 hours before our drinks were served (came in 5-minute intervals after that), the...More

This is a very special place, with crazy decoration (there is a bed hanging from the ceiling!), lekker food (as they say in South Africa) and a very nice ambiance. It is worth a try. The menu includes chocolate chilly steak, vegetable lasagna, and some...More

Very unique space. Fun and interesting, but.....food was slow to arrive and very average. Staff was friendly but our waitress seemed quite inexperienced so the service was awkward and slow. There are a couple tables that just should not be tables. We were first seated...More

No, this is the kind of place where anything goes. The servers sometimes dress up in costumes. This is a wild bohemian kind of atmosphere, so if you have some unique piece of clothing collecting dust in the closet, pull it... More

All prices in South Africa are really a bargain for US travellers due to the exchange rate. The average meal in a place like the Bombay incl starter, meal, dessert and a few drinks will cost about $25.00
