I visited with my mother this November. The service was great, waiter was extremely friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable, food good and full of flavour. Portion sizes are nice and big : I had to take a doggy-bag for leftovers. Downsides were: Choice of music (trance techno) - although my mother enjoyed it! Wine wasn't very good Spice level... More

Ordered takeaway breyani here. Food is lacking flavor. No spice to it. Atmosphere seemed more sombre, and vibrant.

Best Indian Food in the South of Cape Town for sure, we regularily order from Bhandaris and are never disappointed. Price, quality, consistency and great service are all cornerstones of this, our favourite local foodie spot.

Bhandaris serves some of the best Indian food in Cape Town, everything I ordered was so fresh and rich in flavour, whats even better are the portions and prices. I will definitely be back!

Having eaten here many times over the years..I have noticed a distinct decline in the quality of the food. The chicken all tastes precooked in the oven and sauces are very bland. The only spice is hot or hotter..no real flavors. Used to have great Indian Chefs..I dont think so anymore. They advertise on the website Monday night special R125... More

Dear Dom, Thank you for your review. I would just like to clarify a couple of things mentioned in your post.

The food was tasty, I had the butter chicken and naan bread, the service was good and I liked the simple or minimalistic style. The home made? Mango sorbet was also very good and the available wine selection on the menu was good. I recommend if you like indian food.

The best Indian food we have had anywhere in Cape Town! Tried a few different dishes I.e. butter Chicken, chicken tikka and tandoori masala chicken and with a sweet naan bread and everything was excellent and everyone in our party was impressed with the wonderful authentic curries. Service a bit slow but well worth a visit.

Our visits to Cape Town would never be complete without a visit to Bhandaris. The food is delicious and the staff are always friendly. The only problem with this restaurant is that it leads to over eating!
