Bombay Brasserie serves some of the best Indian food outside of India. I've been to India and failed to find anything as good. In fact I love Indian food and enjoy cooking and experimenting with those marvelous fragrant flavours. Maybe one day I might be...More

Fine dining. Vegetarian starter options are great. Kulchas, Naans with South Indian curry options (such as Alleppy Prawn curry) for mains, topped with amazing desserts (sorbet, kulfi & gulab jamuns with ice cream options). Augmented by great service. A nice family evening... :)

What an amazing experience. The food was sensational and not badly priced (although R65 for steamed rice is crazy). We particularly loved the lamb cubes (spicy and falling-apart-tender) and the dahl. The service was excellent - less snooty than I remembered it being a few...More

The traditional Indian food served at this restaurant is delicious. The spicing is subtle and absolutely perfect. I can still taste the tikki potatoes with apricot jam and the masala lamb chops were grilled to perfection. Having a meal at this restaurant is a must.

Obviously prices are not cheap in this kind of restaurant and maybe more wine options could be priced lower. Also enjoyed a nice craft beer after our busy sightseeing day. The food was very well presented and we really enjoyed our different selections and the...More

In peak traffic it will take no more than 10 minutes from the harbour area to the restaurant. You have the added advantage of having the Company Gardens & Iziko museum across the road and Bo-Kaap a 10-15 minute walk up the... More

Can anyone comment on how VEGAN friendly the Bombay Brasserie is, or isn't?

My sense is they can easily accommodate -- there were many choices that were vegetarian and most of these were also free of dairy or egg products. Their menu is online.
