Critic's review

Food
At its best, north and south Indian food is deliciously represented. The lamb gosht pasanda is a delicate curry gravy made with almond, cream and saffron. Navratan korma (vegetables and fruit cooked in cashew nut gravy) is noteworthy, and butter chicken an old favourite.

Wine
Middle-of-the-road offerings plus serious wines and champagnes.

Service
Well-intentioned and eager to please.

Ambience
A newly extended enclosed veranda offers daytime sea views and a more atmospheric experience at night. The classic interior has formal table settings.

And...
A range of sweet meats is offered for dessert. (TG, September 2010)

  • Absolutely terrible food. We come from Joburg and for half the price we get superb quality and quantity. This was unbelievably disappointing. Chicken Korma was awful and Naan breads were like heated pita breads. Will never go there again- extremely disappointed. They must only exist as a result of tourists who don't know any better.

  • Worst service, terrible host. Didn't even get to order. Waited 20 min for a menu after being seated. Decided to leave before ordering because If that was there service I can only imagine how bad the food would have been. When we told the waiter we leaving, he didn't even try to retain us as guests and the hostess his behind the glass entrance just looking at us leave. To think we wanted to have a wedding reception at Kashmir... NEVER! Don't know how establishments like these stay open!

  • I was taken there for my Fathers Day Meal (Supper). My table was the first to dish from the buffet - Most of the food on the buffet was cold - Explanation given by waiter: the food was cooked in the morning for the lunch buffet and that I should wait for the warmers to heat the food up or they could warm the food in the microwave oven. My daughter could not eat the cold, stale chicken drumsticks. Only one of the items on the buffet seemed freshly prepared. Taste and quality of food was disgusting and the service was pathetic. Other tables were also not happy with quality of food and service. Horrible experience on a special day. Pathetic !!!

  • Went for dinner and as usual had a superb experience. Their range of curries is unrivaled and the staff are very friendly, well trained and attentive. Excellent experience.The goscht lamb pasanda is the best curry I have ever eaten and their naan bread is the real deal. Superb.

  • I booked this restaurant for a Mothers Day lunch. My husband and I flew down to Durban for the day to treat my mum and aunt. I made the booking for 13h00. Unfortunately unknown to us Durban traffic has gotten worse than Joburgs on a Friday afternoon and we were delayed for 30min. I did not have the telephone number to let the restaurant know and when they took my reservation they did not ask for mine. When we arrived there we were greeted by a RUDE gentlemen who promptly scolded us for being over an hour late (which we were NOT) and then very abruptly said we must just wait and he was unsure how long. He did not offer us to wait in the bar or state that a table would be ready or that we could order starters or anything of the sort. He was extremely offensive and if this is the sort of front a restaurant puts up they will certainly not have my patronage no matter how good the food or the view is!! I dont recommend anyone subject themselves to this behaviour from a restaurant!! We promptly went across the road to the Beverly Hills where the staff were brilliant and so accommodating. The food was excellent and the service amazing. Just what you expect from a five-star place. Hats off to the Beverly Hills.

  • My wife and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary at Kashmir. The service was average to poor but the food quality more than made up for the service. The Rogan Josh is the best I have tasted anywhere. I will definately go back again and again.

  • We ate here on Easter weekend on a sunday night. The food ordered was a chicken madra, lamb rogan josh and bangan barta. The bangan barta was full on cream, the menu does not list cream as an ingredient. i found little sticks in the lamb and chicken dish. We realised that they were from seafood - the tentacles or feelers that prawns have!!! I again went to the manager and he than admitted that it was not curry leaves!! I called the restaurant twice after coming back to JHB. I spoke to Steven and the owners son Owen who both said that they would tell the owner to call me. He never has.
