Still going strong since 2006, owner and chef M A Khan has obviously got the formula right when it comes to providing good Indian food as three more restaurants all trading under the Tranna name are now dotted around the Pretoria suburbs, and the Sunday buffet is proving to be a winner with its selection of dishes at affordable prices.
Much like the Tranna décor, Curry Palace is not a traditional Indian Restaurant in terms of décor. There are no ornately decorated elephants, heavily jeweled gold ornaments, or bright outrageous colours - symbols which one has come to associate with Indian cuisine! Here you will find a fresh, more contemporary approach. Muted tones abound even in the abstract murals and artwork that decorate the interior. However, the overall effect is both soothing and pleasing, and provides a tranquil background in which to enjoy this immensely appealing cuisine
Focusing on North Indian dishes, there is any endless variety of combinations from which to choose – Tandoori, Breyani, lamb/beef/chicken/prawn Curries, as well as a host of vegetarian dishes to tempt the palate. If bread is your weakness, then the Naan bread is for you. Besides being available in several varieties with different toppings and fillings, the Naan bread comes in a satisfyingly large portion!
A few recommendations on the menu: Potato Paratha – bread filled with fresh vegetables and baked in the tandoori or the vegetable kebab – both appertising starters for vegetarians. Seafood dishes include a kingklip fish curry, deep-fried prawns, and a delectable seafood Biryani. It’s hard to beat a good lamb curry and there are lots to choose from. Specialties include the Lamb Korma as well as the minced Lamb Keema Masala.
