The guy who made Manchurian and noodles was very rude and he was not ready to listen and he had a lot of attitude.

Tried the bunny chow after seeing some reviews on youtube. Taste was average but the portion was pretty generous. The place has quite a number of stalls thus plenty of options to choose from.

We came here to try bunny chow. It was very authentic. This halal restaurant also serves other foods, such as butter chicken, shawarma, and ice cream.

Many options in Indian, Turkish and Chinese food. You order in a roll and retrieve the food on different counters. The portions are enormous and so cheap (we paid 9 dollars for food we both could not finish, had to leave about half!!!).

Varied Eastern food on offer, all of which are bursting with flavour and handsome portions. Delicious vegetarian samoosas, hummus and falafel - shawarmas are loaded with ingredients and condiments are generous. Can be chaotic but fun. Nice of a cheap take home treasure.

Average meal price: R60. Meal portion-curries enough for 2; breyani portion enough for 4 Variety of choices: traditional curry, schwarmas, dosa, chinese noodles. Bunnies get sold out very quick. Large pieces of meat. Curries already cooked and constantly served hot. Rotis warmed in front of...you on stove. Noodles cooked in front of you. Food fresh and gets finished quick due to so many customers. Only issue parking on sidewalk, so be aware of surroundings. Communal style sitting area, cleaned and sanitised after each sitting. Very busy but queues go quick so no issue.More

Good to drop in for a meal at this bazaar-like collection of outlets. There are different options to choose. I liked the chicken tikka, but was a bit disappointed by the felafel dishes and the Chinese food. Western style dishes like french fries and salad...are average. Ice cream is avalable. Prices are okay considering the meals are generous in quantity. You can wash your hands before and after dinner. Music is sometimes too loud, but overall the atmosphere is not bad, rather businesslike. Price indication: chicken tikka served with french fries and salad - 60 RandMore

Excellent authentic Indian food 🥘 on the go. If I are in the city and want to try some tasty, fiery and true Indian food then u must go to this bazaar. Food for vegetarians and meat eaters. Food preparation is on front of u...and is quick even during busy lunch hours. Chicken Tikka was tender but needed a little more flavor so ask the check to spice it up. Cheese and garlic parathas are must try. So are the yummy cheese, masala and paneer dosas. Only challenge is finding parking. You can drive around for several mins and around several blocks to find a decent parking especially if u have a big car or tour bus. So plan you trip and where u will safely park. Food are severed with very large portions and extremely well priced - definitely value for money. Will definitely go back. Bathroom not so clean so make sure this is not a necessity when visiting.More

My wife and I have had some really tasty food there, but last time we went we got the Chinese food to go. We put it in the fridge ate it the following night. I can't give proof it was this that made us sick,...but I can't think of anything else it might be. My wife and I had terrible diarrhea, she threw up, and we have been unable stomach any food for the past day and a half. To be honest, we loved the other food we got here. Just be aware that eating the Chinese might have bad side effects that may last a couple days. Also, their to-go boxes are terrible. They break very easy and your food will spill everywhereMore

I was so excited about visiting this authentic Indian restaurant. I ordered Chicken Kathi Roll. The chicken is supposed to be a Tikka variant but it tasted only of salt and was spiceless. It looked like tikka but certainly lacked the delicious tikka spice. My...son had the Palak Paneer. It tasted like turmeric gravy that was devoid any spices. As an Indian who has an expert palette on Indian cuisine I was very disappointed.More

This is a favorite eatery to take newcomers to the city. The food portions are very generous. There are various menus to choose from. The food is very well priced. You can order take away or sit down. The seating on the ground floor is...in the buzz of the bazaar. The top seating is much quieter.More
