We had friendly service from the bar tenders and decided to eat in rather than take home our curries, you can do either. What a find in Hoedspruit, South Indian food as good as you will get in the best places in South Africa.

Want to treat yourself to a Bunny Chow in Hoedspruit? Then Kalimambo is the best (and only) place to have it. We regularly come to Kalimambo for not only Bunny Chow, but also excellent Indian food. Service can improve, but no fault with their food.

Lacks atmosphere and service is awkward but the food is really delish if you're in the mood for curry. Nice lamb bunny chow in addition to really good chicken korma, butter chicken, and freshly made garlic naan. A nice change from the other eateries in...More

This is a great spot for a very well-priced meal and friendly service. It's a little bit tucked away, but worth seeking out. The bunny chow is fantastic, the beers are always cold and the burgers are good too!

Definitely worth a stop if you're visiting Hoedspruit, or live here and have a craving for authentic and delicious Indian food. I highly recommend the tried and tested Butter Chicken, along with garlic naan.

3 Chefs , each the best at what they do, Chinese, Indian, and South African. Well priced , perfect portion size and a twist of personal touch to the meals without messing with the important authentic ingredients.

Kalimambo is my favorite restaurant for Curry in Hoedspruit, I have been often and never dissapointed. The Lamb Vindaloo is an absolute must. Would recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable evening.

As a Brit, I have been disappointed in the curry on offer in South Africa, on the whole. Kalimambo is the only place I've been to outside Johannesburg that has what I consider "real" Indian curry. They make all curries to order at whatever strength...More

We felt at home immediately. Waitress was very good. I had the hot lamb curry, the wife had sweet & sour pork. Both dishes were great, well prepared, and unique to this restaurant. The menu has a large selection of Indian, Chinese, and grilled food....More
