The curries are simply the best. My favourite: the dahl makhni. When you see locals eating here every day of the week you know this place is good.

Great little Indian restaurant. Groups, family and couples. My family love the butter chicken and tandoori chicken is divine with roti or naan. Wide range of vegetarian and meat dishe's. Something for everyone!

Run by a Sardar in a quiet residential area this has long been my favourite Indian restaurant in Pietermaritzburg. The food is genuinly North Indian and not "South African Indian" Try the palakh paneer and the naans .

The best butter chicken I've had, this small restaurant tucked away opposite Merchiston really gives a great quality meal, the food is really well prepared.
