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

The hype about this place is real. Hard to get in etc. So we were happy to finally manage to get a booking. Atmosphere was lovely and very cool decor. Wine, cocktail and dessert menus were good too but that was pretty much it. Food...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
