This place is definitely overrated. We got the chili steak, which wasn't of the best quality and over done, the sauce was too sweet and allover the steak. As a proper chef you don't put the sauce over your filet. The fries aren't finished and...More

Fell in love with the decor and the atmosphere. The Chocolate chilli steak was to die for. Good selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages. Staff were friendly and attentive. It was the perfect end to a lovely day.

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
