The butter chicken, tikka chicken, dhall fry, beef dry fry, mutton karahi, aloo paratha, keema paratha and kheer are always prepared perfectly. It is a must when we go to Forsdburg

Had one of the best Indian food experiences here. Even though this restaurant is in the middle of the not-so-pretty parts of Joburg the inside of the restaurant is clean and very neat. The food was amazing could have been a little more spicy but otherwise excellent food. The service was friendly and fast. Really nummy naan bread, we had chicken korma and the waiter suggested green masala chicken that was wonderful.

We visited Bismillah Restaurant in Fordsburg on Mother's day (14 May 2017). The restaurant was fairly full, but we managed to get a table for three. Our waiter did not write the order down, assuring us that he would be able to remember (this resulted in unnecessary delays). We ordered 4 Aloo Paratas for a starter, 2 Butter chicken and 2 Beef Karai with 4 Chapati's and 2 plates of chips (as there are no potatoes in the Beef Karai) for the main meal. We also ordered a jug of passion fruit and lemonade (it works out cheaper to order a jug than individual glasses of drinks). They supply you with a small plate of salad and some dhai. The starters arrive on time and was delicious. The Butter chicken is the best I have tasted and the Beef Karai was also delicious. The only problem we had was with the service. Our waiter kept getting our order wrong, because he refused to write it down. Our chips arrived towards the end of the meal as he had forgotten, we therefore had to take it home. On the whole the food was delicious, but the service needs improvement. Will definitely return, but will call manager if waiter refuses to write down the order, as it results in unnecessary delays.
