it was during July of 2013, we were (me & my colleague) in cape town for a project work and tasting the western cuisine for 2 weeks and our taste buds were carving for spicy Indian food, and after googling we finally landed up in Chandani. The food was sooo good :) the ambient was nice. after knowing that we... More

I have been going to Chandani for years, this is definitely my favourite Indian food in Cape Town. The decor inside is quite attractive, I go for dinners there with my wife and we always have an enjoyable dinner. The service is average, but at least the waiters don't bother you, we like it that way. More often than not... More

Sadly the Chandani is closing at the end of this month. The service isn't instant, but it is friendly. It's a very attractive place. The last Lamb Madras I had there was very tasty and nicely hot, and their kulfi is excellent. We'll miss it when it closes.

This restaurant is quite a find in Woodstock. Washington, our waiter indicated that we could choose any table - he was being very democratic and fair, he said! Our main courses were very good - a lamb dish and a vegetable dish - but they both needed more spiciness. We spoke to the manager/chef who indicated that we should have... More

We had an awesome evening with our Indian family at Chandani, lovely food, good ambiance and service. The biggest variety I have seen on a menu and every bite was delicious... If you enjoy Indian cuisine, this is a must to try!

Set in the well known Roodebloem Rd, this bohemian restaurant caters for everyone, including vegans. I have sent many local and international guests here - always with great experiences. The best is to order a variety of dishes and to share it with everyone at your table. Make a reservation, it is usually full. Personally I prefer brinjal masala -... More

We had visited this restaurant last year and been impressed, but how standards have dropped! Although the waitress was very well meaning, she was the only one serving the whole restaurant..... We had to wait an hour and 15 minutes for our starter, and even then the food was below average. To add insult to injury, despite our numerous complaints,... More

It was good to meet friends here. Ask the owners to prepare dishes for you to share, wonderfull flavours. Works well for a group, which we were.

Tough flavourless lamb curry that was hardly mild never mind "hot", as per menu. Watery chicken korma with (virtually 5 chicken pieces) also lacking any real depth. Really low budget food for such, frankly, expensive prices. Cannot believe this restaurant is still operating as i doubt they have any regulars! Do not waste your time & money. You will be... More

A sad-looking waitress took the order. We did not want a side dish since I don't do rice or bread I made clear and pointed out the rogan josh on the menu. The rogan josh arrived. A tiny portion - looking like a starter or a soup with at most 5 tiny cubes of lamb. (R120) We were impressed by... More
