We bought three takeaway mutton and one butter chicken quarter bunny.They were excellent, well priced, good spicy flavours and plenty of meat. They have a small but adequate takeaway and an intimate restaurant which seemed to lack a little atmosphere.

My husband and I eat here quite regularly. Food is very tasty and service is efficient. Of late we have found their portions on the small side and on two occasions no potatoes in our curry. We did address this matter with management and it was sorted out. Just a bit disappointing. However we will still go back. Definitely worth a visit.

Absolutely delicious beans bunny fully loaded with gravy. As I live away from Durban I forgot how finger licking good a bunny really is. I had the pleasure of watching the owner Mr Moodley hand patrons tasters that immediately took me back to India. There was veda pav and tandoori paneer being served and I am sure it will be a great hit.

Reasonablby priced food does not really make up for the average taste of the dishes on offer. Staff seemed harrased and not all that keen on going the extra mile. Seems popular with the locals however, though that may just be becase of the price point. I Think there are better options serving similar dihes.

If you have 2 or 3 hours to waste, please go visit Cane Cutters Umhlanga. Service is terrible. Only 1 waiter. Owner is rude - after 1 hour of waiting for our table to be cleaned after the previous people left, we asked to place an order and the owner questioned us about the dirty dishes (as if we already ate) that was left by previous people and still had the nerve to say they are closed! First and last! Especially coming all the way from Johannesburg, terrible service!!

First visit to Cane Cutters, after the social media adverts over the years professing it to be a top bunny joint. As ex-Durbanites and regular visitors from Joburg, we enjoyed a Durban bunny from several places, such as Goundens and Brits. Cane cutters ranks extremely low in our estimation😞😡. They have 3 categories of Mutton Bunnies, the most expensive being the Deluxe, which we ordered at a much higher cost. The bunnies came, not properly filled with a large potato on top. On cracking it open, there were only 4 pieces of meat, can you believe!! This was shown to the waiter immediately but nothing was done. Never again will we go there... Highly not recommended!!

This was the worst bunny I have ever eaten. There is no effort put into making the mutton curry. It's definitely not worth the R110 paid for the quarter bunny and watered-down gravy! The bunny actually soaked up all the water and was just one soggy disgusting mess!

We had a delicious bunny chow takeaway - butter chicken & mutton. Bread was really fresh & food had good flavour. I was a bit disappointed it didn’t come with any side dish, as promised when ordering.

I can’t recommend this place enough! The food was so yummy, with large portions and a great price. Had the mutton bunny chow which is probably the best I’ve ever had. And the service by Julie was top notch! Will definitely be back!

We heard that their bunny chows were the best so decided to try them I,however opted for the Breyani which was totally disappointing.the rice was cooked very soft,like mushy and even the color was off.It was very dark in color and not the nice red I am used to. The bunny chows the rest of the family had were not wow either.have had much better in Dbn.needless to say we left feeling very disappointed as our expectations were high based on their adverts

The Bunny chow was good but the downside I had was, I asked for the Delux Mutton Bunny Chow(which is boneless with more meat) for R104.99 which was not boneless and with no extra meat. So I am disappointed for what I asked and paid for.
