The Curry Room will be temporarily closed due to current travel restrictions. During this time, our team will be working hard to ensure the hotel is at its best, and ready to welcome you back soon.
An authentic journey of discovery, blending Indian and African influences
The exquisite Curry Room at The Rubens serves an inspired three-course menu created by Chef Arun Kumar. Working closely with Head Chef Kevin Joseph at our sister property, The Oyster Box Hotel in Durban, the team delivers an 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.
Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free options are also available. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary restrictions or allergies when making a reservation, and ask us if you need further information regarding our ingredients.
