Bukhara specializes in various methods of Indian cooking, all with a slant to north Indian origins. Succulent meats cooked in the charcoal tandoor and aromatic curries continue to delight palates in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Johannesburg.
It was only second visit to Bukhara and the second time that I was grossly disappointed with the availability of wine stock on the wine list. We ordered 3 different red wines from the red blend category and they had zero stock of all 3 wines. These were also the cheapest wines on the red blend list and nothing below R225. All 3 wines we wanted to try were just below R300 and the rest above that level. I bought Warwick wine at the cellar last week at a third of the price - that is just wrong. The food is really good but the poor management of wine stocks for a restaurant in the heart of the wine region and the crazy wines prices has made me write this review for the first time in my life. Don't go there - you will be disappointed.
I agree with the comments made. Went there for lunch and we were the only people there. Not surprising as the locals in Stellenbosch strongly take exception to paying R60 for a glass of wine!
Nonetheless, the food was good (albeit very expensive) and the service is consistently good.
Very good Indian food. However, 125% markup on wine? That's a blatant rip off. Also, no self-respecting Indian restaurant should have beef on the menu
Nice but very very pricey and so stingy - even the poppadoms, which are really cheap by the way, are not served as a welcome snack!
