Great place for Awesome Indian Food. just try and pre-book as it gets full sometimes. Ofcourse you have to specify whether you like your meal mild or spicy and they prepare it to your liking.

Surely, it would have been common decency to... More

We've visited Thava on a number of occasions and have not been disappointed in any of our visits. The staff and management are very friendly. The food is excellent. Well worth the visit. 10/10 on every count. Thank for such fine food and great service. Ben and Family Mission Botswana

I was here with some friends today and perhaps their food is nice. Good price again for a smart meal. Their lamb rogan josh is a must try. It is not a very busy restaurant anyway. You could just be the only guest on a weekday noon.
