    Little India: A true Indian Gem

    by GerryFM Written Oct 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Scrumptious!!!!

    Little India is an Indian gem, tucked away in the heart of Musgrave's popular restaurant area. Easy to miss on your first visit, the restaurant is reached by climbing a short flight of stairs and is the start of a dining experience you will want to repeat time and again. From the moment you arrive, your host’s friendly service will charm you, leaving you pampered and content at the end of the evening.

    The cooks are imported from India from both the North and the South, serving up a wide range of styles and flavours that even includes a category known as "Indian Chinese Food". The range of curries is excellent offering a variety of strengths and flavours, and the very whiff of the Tandoori Chicken going past your table will have you calling for your order of the same

    Favorite Dish: It is the more exotic dishes that will pique your interest and your taste buds. Try the Kheema Dosa, a delicate, thin, rice flour pancake filled with mince or the Vada, made from fried green Dhall. It is also the Biryanis that will be another reason to bring you back - delicious in Prawn, Mutton, Chicken, Fish and Vegetable. The list goes on with Chicken and Fish Tikka, Butter Chicken Masala and from the Chinese influence - Spring Rolls, Fried Rice or Noodles and Chicken with Chilli or Ginger. If you can save some room try the Ice Cream with Gulab Jaamun (cream of wheat rounders in sugar syrup, served hot) or maybe the Fruit Sooji. One thing is certain, you will be back very soon.

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The foods great and the view is even better!

    The Roma Revolving Restaurant offers a large spread of Italian cuisine prepared with personal service. It has a superb view of the City of Durban, which is enhanced by the lights at night, and it overlooks the tranquil setting of the Durban Yacht mole.

Discover for yourself the pleasure of a relaxed atmosphere and delightful cuisine. Watch the majesty of the African sunset and the enchantment of the lights of Durban springing to life at night

    Favorite Dish: Aside from the Italian dishes, their seafood platter is not too shabby either.

    John Dory's: Eclectic foods

    by Truna Updated Jan 19, 2003

    Kind of feels corporate. It's a HUGE restaurant, with many sections. Not very personal and very decorated. In door/outdoor seating. Has a huge variety of seafoods and sushi. Even though the decor is not fabulous, the food does make up for it.

    Favorite Dish: It had been a long time since I had sushi, and they had it. It made me very happy and I remember it being very good

    It is situated on the same ship as the aqaurium. Walk up the steps to the upper deck. It's not covered so when it is raining it is not to best place to be. Nice view over the ocean.
