The Curry Room

A menu of family-style Indian & African dishes with elevated interiors & vibrant red furniture

The exquisite Curry Room at The Rubens serves an inspired three-course menu created by Chef Arun Kumar, alongside an exceptional Thali. Working closely with Head Chef Kevin Joseph at our sister property, The Oyster Box Hotel in Durban, the team delivers an Indian restaurant experience that celebrates authentic flavours made with the finest ingredients and exclusively imported spices from India.

The intimate and supremely comfortable setting of the restaurant incorporates Rajasthani hand embroidery and rich red colours that reflect the vibrant diversity of the dishes. An extensive collection of old and new world wine has been carefully curated to complement the dining experience, with a fine selection from Bouchard Finlayson, our sister vineyard in South Africa. The menu also features popular Indian beers, including Kingfisher and Cobra. The Curry Room is proud to hold an AA Rosette.
