The traditional Indian food served at this restaurant is delicious. The spicing is subtle and absolutely perfect. I can still taste the tikki potatoes with apricot jam and the masala lamb chops were grilled to perfection. Having a meal at this restaurant is a must.

We had a terrific experience at Bombay Brasserie. Coming from America we have terrible Indian food and we thought this was on par with the food in London. Service staff and general manager were very friendly and helpful.

Must be the most overhyped and overpriced restaueant in the whole of the Western Cape. I know of at least 5 Indian restaurants in and around Cape Town with better quality food and a smidgen of the price,,, grossly disappointing.

In peak traffic it will take no more than 10 minutes from the harbour area to the restaurant. You have the added advantage of having the Company Gardens & Iziko museum across the road and Bo-Kaap a 10-15 minute walk up the... More

My sense is they can easily accommodate -- there were many choices that were vegetarian and most of these were also free of dairy or egg products. Their menu is online.
