Unfortunately we won’t be coming back. Ordered a butter chicken which was more a normal curry (def not a tomato base which is how butter chicken should be!). I also and asked for spicy but the dish came in super mild. It was not a...bad flavor but I just expected something different. I was also told they can’t make it spicy which is rather unacceptable for an Indian place. The rice is not a not a traditional basmati but some rather unflavored cheaper version. Prices and service are good though.More

Had the mutton burger. Very tasty, full of flavor and you can taste the real meat. Will definitely go back for more.

Great bunny. We ordered a chicken and mutton 1/4 bunny on the bone. Chicken pieces were breast and a tad dry. Sauce was delicious though. The mutton was faultless. Shout out to Dineo our server, friendly and a great sales lady.

After hearing rave reviews about this restaurant, we decided to stop in for lunch. We ordered the samosas as appetizers. My wife got the mince samosas, which she said were terrible; I ordered the corn and cheese samosas which were average. As our main course,...my wife had the mutton roti, which was "good"; I ordered the butter chicken roti which could have used more fresh cilantro and was pretty good. Both dishes came with a carrot salad. Will we go back? Yes, if we're in the area, but we probably won't make a special trip.More

NO NO NO!!! Not the best bunny in Durban!! Best bunny in SA!!! Got here every time we are in town. Never have I been disappointed. Maybe I should try something else, but The bunnies are just to good to be ignored. Denio and Rabia...were excellent hostesses.

My wife and I was very keen for a Sunday afternoon curry. We tried CaneCutters for our first time and wow we were so impressed. The butter chicken bunny was the winner! So flavourful, succulent and rich. Thanks Sbu for attending to our table, your...service was swift and friendly. You'll be seeing us again soon!More

Such a great vibe. Quick service. Extremely clean. Friendly staff. Sbu our waiter was so sweet and helpful. The bunnies were of such amazing quality. We shared the 1/4 mutton bunny and it was a large portion. The curry was delicious. Will definitely recommend this...for an authentic Durban Indian foodie experience 👏🏼More
