What you say
Great place to be! I popped in on NYE, wasn't expecting much at 11pm, but I had the BEST service and GREAT food! I had the Kerala Roasted Chicken, it came with rice. It was absolutely delicious. When the clock hit midnight I was given a glass of champagne (I should of asked what it was cause I hate champagne and this was GOOD) it was welcoming. As a Black American women I had some less than friendly interactions in Cape Town, but Sundoo showed me love and it was the perfect ending to my holiday.
My guests and I had a superb evening. The food was excellent - the lamb chops are to die for - and the wine list intelligently constructed. The service was beyond reproach. I think it is one of the better Indian restaurants in South Africa.
Sundoo serves up the best Indian cuisine I've had in years. My friend had the prawn curry which was filled with the fattest, juiciest prawns just bursting with flavor. I went with the lamb curry, cooked to perfection in all of it's traditional goodness and flavor. The friendly staff takes the service to next level and really topped off the experience. Best choice made going to Sundoo. Going back real soon.
