After having first tasted a bunny from a friend who ordered one as takeaway I was hooked. i was even more fortunate to become an employee at Hollywoodbets. Lets just say I had a bunny or roti for lunch every second day, I could not stop the craving. I recommend all who visit the lovely shores of Durban to go to Hollywoodbets and order yourself this homegrown cuisine.

We have been regular visitors to the Springfield branch of Hollywood Bets for a couple of years. The food has been good and reliably priced. Lately however, things have been on a downward spiral and we have become tired of complaining. On previous occasions we complained to Sukvir and matters were sorted out pretty swiftly. Our visit on Sunday 18th March however was perhaps our last. We ordered the lamp curry as well as the broad bean curry. Both were almost inedible – with tough, stringy poor grade meat and a bean curry that made you choke with the harshness of the spices. Service has always been pretty iffy here – especially if there is no manager around – but this time our waitress, Pride, epitomised bad, disinterested service.
Not sure what’s going on at this place – perhaps they have become victims of their own success – but if they want to retain customers, they seriously need to up their game

The service was excellent. The food was amazing. Well cooked mutton curry bunny chow loaded with flavour. Well priced and good value for money. Will definitely be back the next time I am in Durban.

This was the best bunny chow I have eaten in a while. Meat was soft, ample and not too much bones. Bread and salad fresh and curry tasty and spicy but not too hot.

Best and most consistent indian bunny in Durban. some of my friends argue it is not the best but close to the best. Well it keeps me returning. For a Bunny chow it is not cheaply priced and donot bother to visit there any day between 12 and 2pm as you may not find a seat. being a betting crowd the patrons can be sometimes weird and it may feel claustrophopic to some. But the excellent hot well spiced food makes every visit worthwhile. waiters are good and quick even if sometimes the kitchen have a list of orders. i was never disappointed and visit here atleast 3 times a month. If you want a good seat with fresh food visit at around 11am...my advice

Hi Nishal P
Thank you for your review and providing your feedback! We glad you enjoy our food, and glad you visit us so frequently. We are a betting company first and foremost, so we do recommend that if some wish to avoid this, visit us at our Hollywood Bunny Bar at the Springfield Home Centre which is opposite our Springfield Park branch! It is open from 07:30 to 20:00 daily. Thank you again for your feedback, and we will see you soon!
Regards
Devin
