Shayur's Indian Cuisine

Reviewed By Frank_Chemaly

This was part of my review that appeared in The Mercury on Nov 7Day two. I visited the newly opened Shayur’s Indian Cuisine in Durban North with friends Gordon and John. Eugene and Sharon Singh have named their restaurant after their five-month old son Shayur, who also makes an appearance. It’s a simple spot, part take-away, part restaurant with four or five tables in front. It’s not licensed at present, so you’re welcome to bring your own. Deliveries are also available in the Durban North area. And the proprietors are eager to please with good cooking and efficient friendly service.The menu too is simple, a selection of bunnies, curries, roti rolls and shawarmas. There’s burgers for those that don’t do the hot stuff. It’s augmented by a small selection of Sharon’s own specialities.We started with a plate of chilli-bites and mutton samosas. These were some of the better chilli-bites I’ve had, fresh, light and tasty. The samosas too were top notch. These were followed by tikka hot chicken wings, cooked over the open coals. Now we were all in our elements, the wings juicy, the tikka spicy. Another case of elbow-dripping pleasures.Mains were all enjoyable, Gordon’s chicken Jalfrezi had a very fresh tomato and green pepper sauce, John’s prawn curry a good Durban example and generous on the prawns. My lamb Karahi was rich and rewarding if not particularly hot. But in a different league to Dave’s poor offering the day before. It’s a great new addition to the Durban North scene – give it a whirl.Shayur’s Indian CuisineShop 3, 35 Newport Ave, Glenashley031 572 2725

My Diner

Reviewed By rhodaa218

The authentic taste of Indian cuisine made to perfection. We didn't bother with starters and went straight to mains. Rogan Josh, butter chicken, garlic Naan, Tikka chicken and best of all the Prawns. I would travel back to Durban anytime for the Prawns. Situated, outside the Gateway shopping mall and in close proximity to the surrounding hotels. Fully halaal.

Mali's Indian Restaurant

Authentic Indian Multi Cuisine Restaurant Dedicated chefs from India preparing lip-smacking meals to tickle your taste buds Cozy Indian Sitting

Reviewed By VanessaNarotam

We are fasting for Navaratri so Indian was the perfect choice. Thankfully we got a table even without a prior booking - and clearly Mali’s is a popular choice on a Friday night - as the restaurant quickly filled up. There were lots of vegetarian options and we opted for the Manchurian mushrooms and masala papads to start. Mains were masala dosa - massive dosa with a very watery, small serving of potato curry, dhall makhani - average and paneer Tikka masala with garlic naans and raita. Service was very good.

Cumin Cafe

Reviewed By Eileen T

Went here for an early evening meal. We hadn’t tried bunny chow on our holiday upUntil now and the Cumin cafe had come recommended. It didn’t let us down! Mutton bunny chow was superb!! An extra R10 to have the meat off the bone, but still excellent value for money.

Comics Food Bar & Takeaway

Reviewed By Winsome66

The Comics Food Bar and Takeaway is ideally located near the seaside, in the suburb of Glenashley (Durban, KZN-South Africa). The restaurant has an absolutely restful and relaxing atmosphere with a hint of vibrance and jovialness. The decor is inviting and welcoming. I found the place to be simply captivating!As I entered, I was greeted by a very pleasant and polite waitress/cashier who had a big, radiant and glowing smile! The other staff member was equally pleasant, polite and very helpful. I could see that they were genuinely concerned about their customers. I was surprised that the cost of the breakfast I ordered was so cheap (toast with fried egg and filter coffee) and it was very, very good, well prepared and well presented - I thoroughly enjoyed it and I did not have to wait for a very long time. What a pleasure to have a meal like it was home cooked.There is a 20% off on all meals on Mondays and there are other specials during the rest of the week.They also deliver meals to your home, business etc. Their menu has a very wide variety of dishes, serving local favorites as well as catering for those who are health conscious. Congratulations to the owner/manager on the excellence the restaurant offers in terms of the customer service, food served and offering a well maintained, super clean and safe eating environment. I highly recommend the Comics Restaurant to locals and travelers, visiting the Glenashley (Durban North) area.

Indian Summer

Reviewed By yngwtsf

Friends recommended Indian Summer and said their Butter Chicken is a must - and I was not disappointed! The food is a nice mix of Indian and Asian (Indo-Chinese) choices... I don't usually go for vegetarian options, but I had a fantastic Gobi (cauliflower) starter, and the other vegetarian options sounded very appealing. The Butter Chicken I had for my main course had a lovely tomato flavour without being overpowering, and the Madras Lamb was also very tasty. We ordered Naan and a bowl of rice, and it was plenty food for 2 people, without costing the earth. The decor was simple and clean, but could do with a few tweaks to create a more intimate ambiance. I'll definitely be back!

CaneCutters is an Authentic local Indian restaurant in trendy Glenwood, Durban. Experience the world famous durban indian bunny chow of which we are officially the best in Durban, South Africa and therefore best in the world over as this is unique to Durb

Reviewed By Imfrosty

Our second try at eating at CaneCutters. The first attempt was a fail. They didn’t have any curry dishes available, which was a major let down. Heard much about the place and I was excited to try it out.Eventually we ate there tonight. The inside of the place was very appealing. I loved the decor and the colors. Seats comfy and tables was spacious.CaneCutters win Durban’s best bunny, so for myself their was no other option. I ordered a mutton bunny. Ask for the deluxe, no bones. The amount of meat and sauce was perfect, but in fairness, I have had better. It was a typical bunny. Nothing exceptional about it. It was filled to the brim though. The bread was soft and easy to manage. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. I guess it is a good place to try out. They have burgers and chips, which defeats the purpose of being an Indian restaurant. Maybe next time I will try the burger.AlbertometerStaff 6Atmosphere 7Food 6Price 7 I can get a half bunny for the same price.

The Ocean Terrace

Reviewed By harters

We’re not usually big fans of hotel restaurants but Ocean Terrace is listed at #7 on Tripadvisor’s 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 it’s 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, it’s done very well.The buffet was lacking starters so it was straight in to the main courses. There were about 10 dishes on offer – a good mix of vegetarian and non-veggie. Between the two of us, we managed to sample most of them – yes, one of us went back for extensive seconds having already had extensive firsts. Stand-outs were the “traditional Durban lamb curry” (tender meat, well rounded sauce), a butter bean curry, mixed vegetable curry (veg still retaining a little bite – 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 – raitas, pickles, chutneys. And several bowls of dried fruit – apricots, raisins , etc – 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 there’s chapattis and poppadums – 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!.
