    Don't let the venue's exterior fool you. Wedged underneath the Southern Sun Newlands at the back in a dark corner, you could easily dismiss Bihari and thereby miss out on possibly the best Indian food in the city. They never fail to impress with dish after dish of utter deliciousness. I'm a sucker for lamb boti kebab with pineapple raita and garlicky buttery naan served with jeera pilau. My husband experiments and tries their knowledgeable wait staff's recommendations. If you don't feel like sitting down to dine you'll miss the open kitchen with chefs in action, comfy booths and awesome round tables for family dining. Full most nights, every also do mean takeaway. Thoroughly love this Southern Suburbs delight.
    My husband and I had a lovely meal here. After hearing that it was the best authentic Indian restaurant in Cape Town it did not disappoint. I had the chicken tikka masala which was fantastic. For dessert I had the chocolate volcano which I can highly recommend. Service was excellent. It was a bit noisy but otherwise the atmosphere was good. The complimentary popadums on arrival were a very nice touch.
    Bihari never disappoints in serving the best authentic Indian dishes bursting with flavour. Last night the starter samoosas and lamb Rogan Josh were the hits. Waiters always very attentive and informed.
    Awful. Awful. Why are there any good reviews on the restaurant. They must be fake. The worst service. The worst food. My husband ordered lamb vindaloo. It was a joke. It was dry lamb in tomato sauce. I ordered a veg curry it was like a veg soup. We complained they said they had no chillies that is why it was not hot. Lol. Really. They then just left us sitting there. We had to ask for the bill twice. Service awful. Southern Sun hotel should be ashamed they have this restaurant. Very very bad do not go there. Where did those good reviews come from, I have no idea.
    When looking for a venue for my mother in laws 50th, Bihari came out tops as we had a marvellous lunch there prior and it was halaal friendly. The manager catered to our every need allowing us to decorate a private section for our party of 30 with banners, balloons and a cake. The kitchen ensured we had a variety of starters from samoosas, tikka chicken kebabs and springrolls to mains of different curries like Rhogan Josh, Korma and breyani accompanied with Sambals, poppadoms and garlic pita breads served in beautiful dishes and trays. Coffee and tea was served while we sliced the cake and took pics with the birthday girl. Our young cousin was also treated to a one-on-one lesson with one of the chefs on bread making and the different ways of preparing curries depending on which region of India you hail from. Delicious food, made spicy to your preference with generous portions, Bihari is a great choice for any occasion
