Critic's review

One of Joburg’s busiest curry destinations – and rightfully so. The flavours are light years ahead of the ubiquitous Durban curry. Great lamb dishes (korma and badami), tandoori options, chicken makhnie, exceptional biryani and paneer in rich butter and tomato gravy. (EO mag 2014)

    Authentic, and beautifully prepared and presented North Indian cuisine has made this one of Jozi’s most popular Indian establishments. You can have juicy chunks of chicken tikka, the reshmi kebab or dishes from the tandoor. If you like your Indian cuisine with lots of sauce, go for the badami gosht (tender and lean lamb in an almond and cream gravy), the vegetarian paneer in a rich butter and tomato gravy, or the gorgeous kingklip curry in a spicy and fragrant paste. The lamb makhani comes with melt-in-the-mouth meat in a rich and spiced tomato sauce, and the aloo palak’s startlingly green spinach sauce would please even Popeye.

    Wine
    There's a small and reasonably priced wine list but it could include more Rieslings to accompany the spicy food. Beer is always a good alternative.

    Service
    Smiling and friendly.

    Ambience
    The setting is airy with open ceiling trusses, wood flooring and brown and blue hues. There’s also a raised dining area.

    And...
    Great takeouts when you don’t want to slave in your own kitchen. (JW, October 2011)

User reviews

  • From the moment the owner/manager greets you at the door to the moment you glide out of the restaurant it is amazing. The ambience allows you to have an intimate dinner with a bunch of friends and it feels like you are at home. The service is close to perfect, but there are one or two things they can fine-tune. What i can say is that the staff is extremely friendly and definitely competent and know the menu well allowing them to advise on food options. The food: PERFECTION!!! I have never been disappointed and they have managed to get my meals right. Including the side dishes. And i always take friends along and they have never been disappointed. The sea of gleeful faces around the table is always a delight. *tips hat to Ghazals - Peter Place!*

  • I had some of the best northern Indian food I've ever had here. We were quite a big group but service was still excellent and the food was to die for. I had a lamb korma with a naan bread - best I've ever had. A little pricey, but the portions are big and it is worth every cent. The place was packed on a Tuesday evening which shows that it is something special. Definitely give it a try!

  • The curry at Ghazal's is superb - possibly some of the best in the country! The restaurant is cozy and unique, although it is a little too dark for my liking. Definitely worth a visit.

  • The worst service I have ever experienced. Booked a table they where over booked. They then seated others of similar numbers before us, as a first impression it's a no go, think they have got a bit to big for there boots.
