Authenticity is no joke, a replica of the Mona Lisa by a Ukrainian done in colouring crayons would never measure up to its real life counterpart, similarly clogs manufactured in Taiwan would never click-clack in the same way.

Banjaara is about as close as you can get to India without boarding a plane and getting a Bindi on your forehead. Located in the unsuspecting environs of Broadacres, Fourways, you’ll find the best, and most authentic Indian cuisine this side of the Taj Mahal and, as is the effect of seeing the famous monument, tasting their food is truly a life changing experience. The team at the iconic restaurant have been preparing traditional Indian dishes for the better part of two decades and their experience and dedication can be seen and tasted in every dish.
In the same way that a Ferrari would be far less alluring if it didn’t have seats, Banjaara would not be nearly as enticing were it not for its vibrant atmosphere and captivating interior. Every corner of the restaurant is clad in traditional décor and authentic Indian music plays throughout the evening and by the time you’re ready to leave you’ll be convinced that you’re headed back out into the busy streets and blazing heat of Bombay. Many people head to India hoping for a spiritual awakening, before you break the bank and board a plane, head to Banjaara for a taste awakening and you might just change your mind.
