Went with a couple of work colleagues to try out a new place and we were really disappointed. The presentation of the bunny was bad (on this huge metal dish) and the curry didn't have any taste. Nothing is worse than biting an elachi pod after a meal and I found five (5) (yes, i counted them) in my bunny.... More

Ordered the fish curry on Sunday afternoon – 29th January. Worst fish curry ever, dried pieces of hake that clearly had been in a freezer for a good few months. Note to Jaipur Palace – you’re in Durban – fresh fish is available around the corner. We’re disgusted with the quality of the food at this once-reasonable place.

We drove from Pmb to visit this restaurant and was not disappointed. Awesome service . The buffet food was delectable and full of flavour. Clean and neat ablution services . Fully licensed. Plush restaurant. Loved the Lamb breyani,trotters,crab curry,fish roes, lamb curry , butter chicken . In fact all of it was good.

Wide range of curries. Decent wine list. Big restaurant with a reasonable ambience. But slow and uninterested waiter.

This was our third visit in three years (we live in other cities). We decided to return due to past good experiences. Besides the food taking 90 minutes to prepare, the chicken was undercooked and lacked spiciness (unusual for Indian cuisine) - not even mild in flavour. A staple of Indian cuisine is naan bread. We were advised that the... More

Quality of food and presentation not up to standard and expectation. Deserts not appealing, ice cream had melted and quality of the ice cream was on display when viewed with watery substance.

We booked our year end party at Jaipur on the 2nd of December 2016. We were appallingly disappointed with the food. The desserts were pathetic. This was the worst year end party that we ever had. None of us will ever go to this restaurant again.

Visit Jaipur Palace with friends for some authentic Indian food and was not disappointed. We opted for the buffet for R160. They have a wide selection of meat, fish and vegetarian curries; and many other Indian dishes (traditional) and selection of desserts. The atmosphere and ambiance makes one fee like your in the heart of Durban; families often come here... More

Lovely buffet meal with meat and vegetarian options. Large array of dishes which are tasty and spicy. Dorsas made to order. Sogi was especially nice, but fruit salad was just 2 fruit cut into pieces.

Visited Jaipur Palace mid week with a few friends. I had been there last a few years ago. We had the buffet which gave a large spread of starters mains and deserts of traditional Indian food. Quality of the food has definitely declined. A few hits but mostly misses and overall disappointing. The price of the buffet is competitively priced... More
