The service might not be the best, but the food is very good. I'd recommend ordering take away if you don't want to sit through the bad service.

This place served me the best meal I had in my entire 9 week stay on the continent. I had some amazing curry that blew my mind. The waiter, Ashley, was wonderful. I told him I had several allergies and he took me into the kitchen to talk to the chef himself! I cannot recommend this place highly enough -... More

I've never had a bad meal at Bukhara - we typically order a couple of different dishes, which they service in beautiful pots and then we all share. We've also had a number of non-meat meals there (as my brother is a vegan), and it was spectacular.

Went early on a Friday evening with only three tables occupied. The service was outstanding as one can expect with low peak period, but I was a bit disappointed with the food. We had butter chicken with garlic naan. Naan was great but chicken a bit bland. Then e mutton chops. These were nice, but not wow. I thought that... More

Of the 3 dishes we ordered, the chicken was the best. The fish curry was too salty and the dahl a peculiar consistency. Service was good. Bill came to R600 with 3 bottles of beer.

I live in Stellenbosch and over the years I have eaten at Bukhara often. But it has deteriorated badly. Arrived last week and stood in the foyer while waiters walked past - they ignored me. When we ordered beers, they were warm. Apologies were obsequious and overdone. Food was bland and tasteless, and at the end I was given a... More

We came here because on Valentine's day we decided to dine out and had no reservation. They accepted us. The dinner was made of lemon rice which we loved and prawns. Wine was excellent: durbanville hills white Chardonnay.

Very very nice curry. Very different menu to UK and starters limited. But do not let this minor point stop you from making a visit here. Still licking my lips.

We fancied a curry whilst staying at the Oude Werf and our wine tour guide told us about this Indian. The food was good though we weren't actually very hungry but were upset by the tipping episode we had. Our meal came to 406 rand so as we were paying cash just put 600 rand into the wallet. After waiting... More
