Thava Indian Restaurant has its roots in Kerala, India.

Thava specialises in South Indian cuisine and prides itself on its use of the freshest local ingredients, aromatic dishes and, in a first for South Africa, its unique Indian Tapas offering – pure indulgence; perfect for sharing, perfect for experiencing.

Served in tasting portions as a starter, or as a shared main meal, guests can select from a combination of any items straight off the set or daily specials menu.

There is a mouthwatering array of vegetarian, lamb, chicken or seafood dishes to select from. Reflecting the diverse culinary specialities of India, Thava’s menu includes fragrant curries, briyanis and stews, spicy Tandoori and Masala dishes, all served with traditional breads, rice dishes and side dishes of freshly prepared chutneys, pickles or vegetables.

With a Tandoor oven in open view, diners can watch how breads and Tandoori dishes are prepared.  The breads are not to be missed and diners are spoilt for choice, with a vast selection of Indian flatbreads, including the popular naan and roti, as well as paratha – a traditional layered bread that’s torn apart to serve and literally melts in your mouth.  There’s also the unique Thava roll, which has to be sampled to be appreciated.

To complete the meal, dessert comes in the form of a selection of heavenly traditional Indian sweet temptations, or your selection of speciality coffees.

      No other Indian restaurant in JHB comes close to the quality and delicious taste of the food at Thava. The prices are also the most reasonable and rice is included with the curries. The service is exceptional with warm plates given and your every request catered for. I go there at least once a week and if I had the time to go more often I most definitely would.
