Of the best Indian cuisine in Cape Town. Very nifty that it is situated so well, easily accessible, and at the superb Newlands Souther Sun(Tsogo)

...a great Indian restaurant. Food was plentiful and delicious. You get to choose the 'heat' of your food which allows you to have a madras strength korma if you want. I like my curries and this certainly filled my needs.

I was meeting up with friends before the rugby at Newlands and they had seen Bihari as it is close to their hotel. We imagined it would be busy due to the match and whilst all the tables outside were full the inside is spacious and there was no trouble finding us a table. Out of the whole experience this...

Being English, I have a different idea of what Indian food is like. This wasn't what I expected but it was lovely, all freshly cooked and very tasty. The choice of meals on the menu wasn't very wide but the tandoori lamb chops were delicious. Could do with a bit more knowledge from the waiter about the menu.

We found the actual restaurant fairly loud as you have the sounds of the open view kitchen as well as the fellow dinners chatting. The food was excellent though, we would brave the noise again just to have such wonderful food.

I recently visited Bihari restaurant and was pleasantly surprised at the food quality at this restaurant. We found the pricing a bit high. We ordered chicken tikka, lamb chops and prawn curry. Our waiter Ranbeer was an absolute delight. Always attentive to our needs and his service was excellent. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit. The atmosphere, food and... More

Its been a while since our last visit, The flavour is still amazingly good, if not exceptional.Tonight the naan bread was inconsistent with one burnt bread. I will put this down to the busy time of year. The service was good, not great. The flavour in the food made up for any ills. Only the lamb cubes of meat was... More
