Ate here during Easter weekend. We had the paneer tikka and dhal makhani. Whilst the paneer tikka was a good dish the dhal makhani was not. I found it very disappointing that a top class restaurant such as Bukhara does not offer finer bowls after your meal. Out waiter was also pretty arrogant and pathetic. Compared to Bukhara Nelson Mandela... More

We visited the restaurant a couple of days ago and were served by Patrick. The lamb chops, chicken wings, butter naan and Daal fry were so good that we ended up ordering twice. The manager Trix was very courteous and friendly and served us a second Daal on the house. Their meat was tender and the butter naan were melt... More

There is a many a times that I have visited the different branches of this resturant in South Africa but every time I've eaten at Bukhara V&A I've been disappointed. The service is slow and atrocious. Never been happy with it. The lighting is the resturant is distracting and sometimes hurts the eyes. Cleanness of the floors deplorable. The quality... More

First the positive - I would have rated Bukhara 5 stars if it was on the food alone. I had Lamb Rogan Josh with Roti and Garlic Nan Bread and it was absolutely DELICIOUS - all of it. Then the negative - I would have rated Bukhara 0 stars if it was on "value-for-money" alone. For nearly R300 I could... More

Recently dined at Bukhara, chicken Breyani was excellent and service was prompt and efficient. Will definitely recommend to friends and family. Well done to the Manager Tricks for being so accommodating. Thank you

Very bad personal experience at Bukhara restaurant, water front, Cape Town 2/4/17. Shahi Paneer had chicken in it. Vegetarians during Navratri had to bear that n the manager was very casual saying it was human error. I think vegetarians n strict Hindus / Jain going to this restaurant in CT should be very cautious.

We decided to grab a bite to eat here after exploring Cape Town all day, and it looked a pretty nice place to eat. Alarm bells started ringing when we were told all tables were reserved. The majority of the restaurant was empty, and remained so while we were there. Do we want Chinese food or Indian food? Well, maybe... More

We were hungry but its absolutely not worth the price unless you want to splash R44 on water and R28 on a can of coke. More for rich tourist. Food wasn't that Grand!

Great starters to choose from at reasonable prices. Good wine by the glass. We chose and do so every time the Chicken Cheese Kebab and a butter naan. This is more than enough to eat and the chicken cheese kebab is to die for. It melts in your mouth. With the restaurant being upstairs it enables you to have a... More
