Royal Punjab

My family and I went to this small Indian restaurant in Heathway Square, Blackheath, to celebrate a birthday. I loved their lamb korma with basmati rice and the delicious garlic and herb naan bread. Depending on what you order, it can be a bit pricey, but the portions are generous. I felt like I needed to be rolled out of the restaurant.

Red Chilli Spice

If you are looking for great quality but affordable Indian food along with ice-cold craft beer, then make a stop at Red Chilli Spice in Craighall. They have lovely views over the suburb and indoor and outdoor seating. The chicken tikka masala is always excellent.

Thava

I have always enjoyed the spicy delights from Thava in Norwood. This is definitely one of my favourite spots when I’m on the hunt for some delicious curry to warm me up. As lamb korma is one of my favourites, that’s what I prefer to order here — pieces of lamb cooked in a cashew nut and cream sauce. But, there are loads of other options on the menu too, including vegetarian starters and mains.

The Raj Gold Reef City 

From bhoona to karai, The Raj at Gold Reef City Casino has it all. The lamb rogan josh is popular but what really sets the Raj apart is their game menu. Yes, you heard right, they serve dishes like ostrich tikka and springbok tikka masala. Groundbreaking!

The Classic India At Cedar Square

For authentic North Indian cuisine, head down to The Classic India at Cedar Square and experience India right here in Joburg. The Bhuma Gosth Kalimirch must be mentioned — chunks of boneless lamb roasted in tawa with black pepper, cooked in the chef’s special gravy. The restaurant also has an extensive selection of fine wine from the Western Cape to complement your meal.

Vikram’s Banjaara

This Indian restaurant has some of the best curry I have ever tasted! We ordered out from them for a friend’s birthday and everyone enjoyed it! They have a large selection to choose from, like samosa starters, chicken dishes, fish and prawn dishes, lamb and even vegetarian options! Plus, the naan breads are extra tasty.

Taste Of India

Taste of India in Bryanston brings you a great selection of Indian cuisine. If you can handle the heat, choose one of their curries. They also do a fish vindaloo with kingklip. But, if all this sounds way too hot for you, don’t worry because all dishes are prepared mild and medium as well. Look out for their lunch takeaway specials and Sunday buffets.

Dosa Hut Fordsburg

Nothing beats a good dosa — those flat rice pancakes are just divine. As the name suggests, that’s Dosa Hut’s speciality so head to this gem of a restaurant in the heart of Fordsburg for some delicious and super-filling food. It’s a no-frills kind of place, but if it’s good food you’re after, you’ll be all set here.
