With a varied menu, wine list and tremendous service. Haven't had Chicken 65 in years and it was every bit as good as I remembered. Naans were all tasty. Sauces wonderful. It's a good idea to book this restaurant in advance as we saw customers arriving without who could not be seated.

The food was very good too - they even made our lamb shank less spicy for our mild palates! The only negative was the wine list prices were... More

Bit expensive but probably the best Indian Food in Cape Town. Food is delicious. Highly recommended to make a reservation before going because it is not a very big restaurant.

We accidentally saw this restaurant on our recent visit and were accommodated for dinner without having made a reservation. The service and food were excellent. Very classy restaurant with well trained wait staff.

Our second time- and not our last! We are obsessed with Indian food and make a habit at sampling the local fares on our travels. This place is a hidden gem within the Taj hotel. The menu has some impressive variety and has a home cooked taste but with a fancy appeal. Plates are family style and enriched with flavor... More
