Weâre not usually big fans of hotel restaurants but Ocean Terrace is listed at #7 on Tripadvisorâs list of 114 restaurants in Umhlanga. It had to be worth a try, not least as we were staying at the Oyster Box Hotel where itâs located. Not least as, in addition to their fairly extensive menu, they also have a curry buffet. Now, these can be tricky. Buffets are rarely top quality food but South Asian food seems to stand up to it better than some other cuisines. Here, itâs done very well.The buffet was lacking starters so it was straight in to the main courses. There were about 10 dishes on offer â a good mix of vegetarian and non-veggie. Between the two of us, we managed to sample most of them â yes, one of us went back for extensive seconds having already had extensive firsts. Stand-outs were the âtraditional Durban lamb curryâ (tender meat, well rounded sauce), a butter bean curry, mixed vegetable curry (veg still retaining a little bite â not always a given with Asian food) and daal (a good chilli kick here)There was a vast range of things to go with your curries â raitas, pickles, chutneys. And several bowls of dried fruit â apricots, raisins , etc â which were very reminiscent of Indian meals in the UK when folk started to eat it back in the 1970s. But the retro touch was nice. Rice, not pilau and palin boiled, was good with fluffy separate grains. And thereâs chapattis and poppadums â the latter a bit greasy and not quite crisp enough.The buffet includes a pick from the three dessert items available. There was alovely almond kulfi and, served warm, a vermicelli pudding. I think the latter is a South African spin on the usually cold falooda. Good dinner!.

Our Mo-Zam-Bik Restaurantâs offer a place where family and friends can get together and experience the culinary delight of Afro-Porto cuisine without any passports required. Our aim is to take your taste buds on a flavourful journey whilst offering a rela
Service was not too great as we had two waitrons and a manager serve us so we werenât sure who was helping us all along. The prego steak roll was awful - it was a thin thin slice of dull bland steak served in a sauce soaked roll which made it soggy to the tough. We sent it straight back. The peri peri chicken and grilled veg was divine though!Their cocktail jars were tasty - we ordered three in total but they were different across the board in taste. The two green drinks (I think it was called a green mamba or green sting) had too much alcohol in the one drink, and not enough in the other - bar needs to make sure their measurements are correct.I would definitely go back though!Hi Micfranmf, Thank you for this very balanced and well-written review. I am sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience at our store. This is not how we want our customers to experience their time with us.
