As a group of travellers on a budget, this suited us perfectly. Mahoosive portions of well cooked Indian/ Turkish food (we didn't have the Chinese) and at a really cheap price. One of our friends went back 3 nights in a row. Just be sure to have 4G for your speedy Uber exit, some of the group felt unsafe in... More

You get what you pay for. A little change out of R100 for 2 gets you some slop on a plate. Tried it, won't bother again personally. Of course, others may beg to differ.

I've been more than once with my Boyfriend. They have amazing food and their portion sizes are excellent. No meal is over R55.00 I highly recommend this bazaar to anyone who loves eastern food!

Interesting atmosphere and really enjoyed the Tandori Chicken. Basic chairs and tables, nice crowd feel and multi cultural. Great experience!

I was highly impressed upon my recent trip to Eastern Food Bazaar in the heart of the Mother City. The atmosphere is similar to an Arabian souk where the food is not only affordable but top quality. Will definitely be back.

Recommended by a local, this is a well discovered secret in the heart of Cape Town downtown. A selection of Chinese, India and Middle Eastern food at very good pricing and huge portions. Best Naan bread in the country. A truly wonderful find.

We eat at the Eastern Food Bazaar on average once a week - without a doubt great value for money! Love their lamb briyani when it is available! Great butter chicken, tandoori chicken and chicken tikka! Portions are generous and even more so as a take away!

A local recommended we visit this eatery - which turned out to be the best walkway stuffed full of people, food and good vibes!! Order and pay at any of the stations and pick up down the line from the relevant chef. The food is delicious, the portions huge and the price very reasonable!! Gets VERY busy during lunchtime, it's... More

I like to think of the Eastern Food Bazaar as a cultural experience...a crossroads of culinary adventures. Don't expect excellent service, because it truly is a 'Bazaar' of food with more of a cafeteria set-up. Fantastic prices for those on a budget!

Quality food at a price that you cannot believe. If feel like something small or big here are every portion size to choose. If you are vegetarian or not you will be able to eat. If you are in between meetings or on your way to a theatre production this is where can stop to eat!
