Visited for lunch. Good taste, nice location and reasonable prices. Variety is mostly around North Indian dishes. Service too is pretty quick. Offers buffet options.

We went here, it was the only Indian restaurant in Emporers Palace. We were extremely underwhelmed. Many chair backs are chipped or splintered, plates with chips, etc. Alot of money saving shortcut, which isnt too bad considering how cheap the food is, it is extremly affordable, but I would rather pay more for better food. The butter naan was delicious... More

Went for a meal before one of the shows. They have a daily buffet at R 135 which is quite good. Enough variety to cater for vegetarians and carnivores. The butter chicken and lamb curry had more than enough meat and the service was pretty good. A decent meal

Loved the food that they served at Taste of Mumbai which is located inside the Emperor's Palace. No idea on the pricing as it was done through our tour but the quality of food was really good. The only negative aspect was the size of the place and it cannot accommodate many at a time.

Never expected that would get such good Indian food in South Africa. Ordered tandoori and mughlai items, all the preparations were good both in terms of quality and taste. Would highly recommend the place.
