Great curry. Swimming in oil no drowning in oil but good flavor . Enjoyed the curry but not the oil. Had to decant the oil into a cup which it half filled. Why?

My order was number 130 but the person who walked in long after me (order 131) received their food way before me. I was told that someone went to fetch roti but there was absolutely no urgency. The staff's attitude is pathetic and favoritism of...certain types of customers is evident. I would love if the owner could view the footage. The call prior to going there was even more pathetic. These people need to go on telephone etiquette and exceptional customer service training.More

After reading reviews on this spot, I had to go while in Pinetown, prudently I phoned days before to find out which days they do the Prawn and Chicken Breyani, ( Wednesday to Sunday) and so I went lunch time Sunday, for a 1/4 mutton...bunny chow, and a Breyani take away ( their was a Sunday only special of a crab breyani, I knew I would have to leave it for the next visit. Unassuming, busy but quick service, Curry, Roti and Breyani spot that does the absolutely best bunny chow. Make it a must do when in Durban/Pinetown. Old school superb!More

Tried the chicken and prawn breyani today for the first time. It was the best breyani I've ever eaten. The rice was perfectly flavoured and the chicken and prawns were cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back soon! I was also glad to see that...the restaurant followed strict social distancing and sanitizing protocols.More

Fod is absolutely delicious, and it is consistant with tatse and falvour. Service is excellent only problem is getting through to thephone lines to place and order and sometimes the curry being finished.

Could be one of the best bunny chow takeaway in Durban. Lots of awards on the wall will attest to the restaurant being above average.

As we say in South Africa, "local is lekker' . This is nowhere more evident than this quaint little family take away. From home made pickles, to curry and phutu (thick polenta type dish), to prawn and chicken breyani. It is all there for the...tasting. The fact that you may have to wait for your order is self evident that you are in for a sensory overload, That also explains why this place has been a steady top performer in the annual Coke-a-Cola Bunny Barometer competition for a number of years. My top picks will be (in no particcular order): 1.4 Mutton Bunny (award winning stuff) Butter chicken (creamy and juicy chicken pieces) Prawn and chicken breyani (weekly special that is well worth it) Get there now and enjoy every minute of your meal.More

We've just smashed, barely, two quarter mutton bunnies. They were large and my mate asked if they were halves! Unlike all other places, Curry O's loads the plate surrounding the bunny with thick gravy.. Lots of it. In fact 250 ml. Enough to never eat...a dry piece of bread and still have gravy leftover. Also took some photos of the beans bunny for all to see.More

Great tasting food, good portion sizes and fair prices charged. Friendly serving staff, but can be busy at peak times resulting in a bit of a wait. But, I suppose, good things come to those that wait. Mt go to place for authentic curry dishes

The locals buy and eat their lunch right there, in their workclothes.... Families sit and eat their meals after school and/or work in a close and confined space. The takeaway queues include spontaneous customer conversations about the food and recommendations. Need I Say More??!!!! P.S....Get there on time to avoid disappointment....they keep family hours.More

Simple shop really geared for take away meals rather than sit down really worth the visit though if you in the mood for a really authentic Indian curry. They don't trade late and often not on public holidays so you need to check if they...open before you drive through. Just talking about his is making my mouth water.More
