Amazing Food!!! The service and food and the experience was like in a dream! This is everything that I needed to have a good time and it was just amazing!

Bad food - worse service I placed a takeaway order with an attendant (who was was very distracted by other customers) who failed to write down one of the main meals I requested (she was too busy taking in a cake from guests who had...just arrived and chivvied me off to the side MID-ORDER). We therefore only received part of the order and the quality of the food was very poor. I order the exact same dish from the Norwood branch and have done for many years but what I received was clearly a lower quality (and I received a hot when ordered a medium - same happened with one of the other mains). Utterly appalled and will NEVER be going back to this branch as it goes about ruining an otherwise great reputation of Thava.More

Attentive staff, well prepared food. Can be full of other patrons but a testimony of how delicious the cuisine is.

Thava newly opened in 2019 and after our first visit, we visited many times after. The service, ambiance and mostly the food is amazing! The flavours and taste is really 'out of this world". It makes your mouth so very happy! We have eaten at...many different Indian restaurants and take aways and Thava takes first place and will always be our favourite! My son feels that other restaurants cook too hot but he loves eating here as the food is mild but tasty. Always book in advance to ensure that you are not disappointed as they are always busy.More

The food was delicious. The waiter,Decent, who served us was knowledgeable about the menu and was helpful in recommending vegetarian and fish curry dishes. Highly recommended for family outing.

We have visited Thava at Monte since it has opened and the food and service exceeds any expectations at all times. It gets very busy so you would need to make reservations for dinner and over weekends. The restaurant is always busy which means good...food and service. The dishes are all authentic Indian food like in India as the chefs are all from India and the dishes are prepared fresh and can range from mild to hot whichever you request The staff and friendly and service is always great. The manager Vibin from the first meeting has been pleasant and a great host as he visits each table to chat with you and recommend any dish which is excellent. We always go as a family to celebrate a birthday or anniversary or just a dinner and we always leave satisfied. My son loves the butter chicken and garlic naan and if he can finish his meal it says that the food was delicious as he is a picky eater. we have tried almost all the chicken dishes and think the lamb dishes are also tasty. The mango lassi and Bombay crush is a favourite. My mom in law is in a wheelchair and we are always accomodated accordingly which is part of the excellent service we receive. Thava has to be our family favourite when it comes to Indian foodMore

We tried Thava Monte for the first time and we were greatly impressed. The chefs are from India and they are retained all the Indian flavors and I strongly recommend to visit this place if you want to enjoy good Indian food. Service has been...fantastic (Decent who served was great) and it has been long we enjoyed such good Indian food in Joburg. Must dine here.More

After the theater on Saturday we decided to try Thava and were we glad we did. Not only was the food was incredible but the service from the Managers and the Waiters was brilliant. We shared a Chicken and Prawn curry, Borth Indian style and...then from Southern India a Thava Special Lamb Madala with Thava Kerala Paratha. All stunning but the paratha I could have had dozens with it’s flaky texture it was the bombMore
