Critic's review

A real feast. Go for the buffet and be tempted by every kind of curry, from crab and prawn to lamb, chicken and lentils. Accompany your beautifully cooked stews with a variety of Indian breads, and finish off with boba milk tea or kulfi ice cream. It’s set in a huge house, so there’s space for everyone. (EO mag 2014)

  • my dads 60th birthday was tainted with food that was 2 days or 2 service old, not fresh and at R179 a head you would think the food will be of a high standard let alone fresh. after eating we all complained about the food and we wasted what we took and although we never advise the manager, we left with a sour taste in mouth and tummy cramps which later made us all visit the loo.... disgusting, worst part of it all was when I emailed them first time Monday morning as sunday we were recovering they never respond until I kept promping for a respond and then eventually today Wednesday they advised me no one else complained except you is this an answer, they claim we mixed and maybe that's y we complained but its a buffet firstly and secondly we tried a dish and was put off and wasted it and tried another we never enjoyed our meal to say we will be back infact at the table we all compared what we tried and advised the other not to eat that especially the custard which was clearly gone off and the colour looked bad. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE, THEY MASS PRODUCE AND FREEZE THAT SERVICE FOR THE NEXT SERVICE - NO FRESH FOOD THERE AT ALL AND THEY CHARGE SUCH HIGH PRICES :( HORRIBLE SERVICE AND FOOD WONT GO THERE AGAIN

  • Been there on the 28th December 2015. Rules have changed without any notice to customers. Tables are allowed either all al carte or all buffet. Buffet didn't look great so 1 family member opted for al carte and the rest preferred the veg buffet. Was told that was not possible so we all had to leave. The place is losing its touch. Owner couldn't be bothered. Staff was not at all hospitable. Place was almost empty at 6pm on the day - can see why. It's the only restaurant that dictates what the guest must order (Strange).

  • Bought 2 quarter lamb curry bunnies and potato and chicken samoosas to take away. Was totally disappointed! The samoosas were too crispy and broken with the filling leaking out and burnt. The lamb curry had only bones and the curry tasted like it was a day old. Definitely not freshly prepared. Will not support them again.

  • Not recommended! This restaurant used to be great at one point but is now getting from bad to worse. My extended family of about 20 people had a meal here a while ago to celebrate a family members milestone birthday. In fact 2 out of the last 3 times we have been here, the food has been terrible. The 3rd time was just average. The only reason we actually went back is because friends had told us that there was an improvement - clearly not. The curries are old and there is not much of a selection any more. Some curries tasted so horrid that I am sure they had gone bad. The cost of R120 per person excluding the service charge is by no means cheap so one would not expect this sort of meal. The mutton was full of fat and so tough that it was inedible. The butter chicken was sour, as was the pasta. The cutlery and crockery is also dirty. Most of us just tasted the dishes and didn't eat properly as the food was terrible - not something you would expect to pay for. Advise to anyone considering going there - DON'T!

  • Visited the restaurant on my Birthday to enjoy some different and authentic durban curries. However I seem to have gone to the wrong place extremely dissapointing for the price paid. The restaurant and atmosphere is very sad and needs attention. Lots of waitors just standing around and unhelpful.The food buffet was absolutely terrible. All of the curries except the butter chicken was old and seemed to have been boiling in the same trays for a few days. All the limit choice of curry limited and looked very old and tastless. Fish curry was clearly old and no chicken in sight amoungst all the black looking meat. All five of basically had to eat potatoes, vegatable pasta and Nan bread. Highly dissapointing had visited another restaurtant the night before which i would rather have gone back as the atmosphere , music, food and service was outstanding. Unfortunately I will never go back to Japur Palace again.
