ALWAYS a winner for takeaways, but EVEN BETTER dining in restaurant. Vegetarian Handi Biriyani was outstanding, as was my lamb Kadai. So flavourful, not too spicy, a great recommendation from our waiter. Atmosphere was quiet but felt very private due to great acoustics absorbing sound...of those around you. I've been there for "big table" get-togethers and also just myself and my wife - both handled equally well. Service was great, friendly and attentive, but not overly so.... perfect. (waiters work as a team.) Nothing but standard options on the beer menu, but the dishes more than made up for that. Been going there for decades, and the standard is as good as ever. Great job Vintage India teamMore

We went on Boxing Day not many places had open so the place was really busy. Most of the food was very nice, but the lamb in the Jogan Rosh was not cooked well, it was tender and the gravy was tasty but it seems...like it was cooked separately. We confronted the staff and the changed the dish very quickly and it tasted a bit better. It was really busy day and at some point they had to say no to new costumers as the kitchen was so busyMore

We ordered multiple dishes of all different types of food for a selection of courses but when it arrived it was one congealed mass. It was impossible to tell one dish from another all the sources intermingled with all the other sources everything turned upside...down looking like one bag of slop On top of that cause an hour and a half late The lateness playing by the uber eats driver on the restaurant. And I'm sure the restaurant blaming the slop on the uber eats driver. But whilst ubereats argues with the restaurant in the restaurant argues with the driver and so at the end of the day but we received was actually in edible. And how and a half late. Cold. And it doesn't dishes merged into one pile of goo. We did complain to uber eats but apparently with few hours too late because we had exceeded them today deadline. And itself ridiculous why should that be a criteria of submitting a complaint within such a short time frame.

Having phoned and booked for a Wednesday evening we arrived early for our dinner reservation to find that the restaurant was closed as they were doing catering for an external function. We would have had no idea if we had arrived at our scheduled time...as all staff would have left. The restaurant did not phone us to inform us that they would be closed. They certainly didn't let us know when we made the booking.More

We had a lovely authentic North Indian meal here with a dum biryani on the menu bringing back happy memories of our world-reknown biryani we had at Paradise hotel in Hyderabdh ( the owner is from there). The extremely jovial owner was a delight to...my little one, who was spoilt with lots of laughter and a complimentary mango lassi to finish off our decadent meal that perfectly satisfied our craving for curry after a week without! The service is fast, friendly and efficient; the food is authentic; and the view of Table mountain just topped off a very memorable meal!More

I like the fact that they have an Indian cuisine -South Indian- in the MOJO. The place does have all the classics, like mango lassi, naan, curries and salads, which is perfect for an vegetarian meal like I had. I think they can use a...little bit more spices to the full thing, but the staff is super friendly and also really welcoming. You can even sit upstairs -perfect for when you are alone after gym like me- but you are welcome to take it in the rest of the MOJO. Liked the fact they are open till quite late -22h00 ish- which is longer than other meal places at the MOJO which makes them competitive. They might use this in their advantage by advertising this more.More
