Had the best roti roll here .. their homemade ice cream (granadilla flavor is my personal favorite ) is an awesome desert.

A tiny restaurant tucked away in little corner … this place has wonderful, delicious Indian food. The decor is simple and elegant. We tried the prawn tempura and the curries … prawn curry as well as the lamb curry. Each cooked to perfection … tasty....And you must have the garlic butter naans. They melt in your mouth. Wish we were living here in East London … we would be back again and again.More

What a treat. Truly amazing authentic food. Cozy atmosphere and great service. We had the butter chicken, lamb vindaloo (hubby says it was incredible) and chicken bunny chow. Wish they would move to Nelspruit.

Very good curry! The kids enjoyed the lentil soup and butter chicken, and it was definitely the most enjoyable lamb curry I've ever had.

Had lunch at Irana Indian restaurant on Friday, with a friend. still the best curry and service in East London, by far. I wish we had Irana Indian Restaurant in Port Elizabth.

The lamb bunny is a winner. At first glance it seems small. The flavor and taste is infused into the gravy. There is lots of gravy well soaked into the bunny. It will leave you wanting more but satisfied. The chicken tikka masala is a...curry with tikka flavor beautiful if you like tikka it is served in a medium sized copper Karai bowl served with Roti. The roti is large. The sambals is dipped in sugar. It will leave you wanting more.More

While on holiday staying just outside of East London our family felt like a good Indian curry for a change. Irana did not disappoint - a great little restaurant with a good variety of Thai and Indian dishes. Everybody enjoyed their meals - the Thai...Green Curry got the vote of dish of the evening. Portions where more than adequate and Service was good. A night to remember !More
