Ghazal North Indian Restaurant is one of South Africa’s finest Indian restaurants and the winner of the Leisure Options Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Award for Best Indian Restaurant from 2010 to 2016. Established in 2002 by owner Jimmy Gill, Ghazal North Indian Restaurant offers spectacular North Indian cuisine coupled with stylish décor, superb service and a warm ambiance in two locations in Johannesburg – Melrose Arch and Bryanston.
Focused on North Indian cuisine with sensational spice balance, the menu spans tandoori, chicken, lamb, vegetable and seafood dishes. With Jimmy having grown up in North India near the foothills of the Himalayas and immigrated to South Africa in 2002, the menu is an ode to the owners’ culinary journeys; a highlight reel combining the best of their experiences. What’s more, they pride themselves on using only the finest ingredients and the best spices that India has to offer.
Popular dishes include samoosas, onion badija, pakodas and lamb shish kebabs for starters, followed by tandoori chicken, lamb Rogan Josh or chicken or lamb curry, vindaloo, palak or korma for mains – to be enjoyed with assorted crispy, buttery rotis or soft, charry naan breads from the clay oven. A wide selection of vegetable and seafood specialties, along with salads and raita, are also available. This is completed by a stellar wine list of local and international wines.
Join Ghazal North Indian Restaurant in Melrose Arch or Bryanston for a long, lazy lunch, a special date night or even a boardroom meeting with a difference. Both restaurants can be booked out for private functions of up to 50 guests – including venue hire and catering – and are therefore ideal for staff parties, too.
